We are well equipped with research grade, Zeiss optical microscopes capable of :
- Transmitted plane and cross polarised light
- Reflected illumination (for investigation of reflective minerals)
- Epifluorescence microscopy
All the microscopes are equiped with digital cameras (with live view imaging on attached PC’s), and we have stepping stages (but driven using our own, in-house, software) that we use for modal analysis and acquisition of images for preparation of digital thin-sections and deep zoom images.
