Optical Microscopy

Three tipologies of optical microscopes are installed in the laboratory:

  • Upright (reflection and transmisison)
  • Metallografic (inverted)
  • Stereo

They are equipped with filters, polarizator  with a range of objective from 1x to 100x. Each microscope has the CCD attachment for digital image acquisition.
