Nikon Binocular Polarization Stereo Zoom Microscope with Slide and Round Polarization. Often used to get the right thickness when making geological slides for examining the minerals by its "interference" colour using the Michel Lévy Color Chart. For measurements and more detailed pictures: see pictures.
The Michel-Lévy interference color chart has been in continuous use by analytical microscopists for more than 100 years. Because this chart, also known as the Michel-Lévy Table of Birefringence, is just as useful today as it was over a century ago in unlocking the many mysteries of microscopic particle analysis and identification. This extraordinarily valuable aid to the polarized-light microscopist graphically relates the thickness, retardation (optical path difference), and birefringence (numerical difference between the principal refractive indices) for particular views of transparent, colorless or colored substances. These characteristics allow unknown materials to be identified; additionally, they provide important optical information about those materials whose identity is known.Item is in excellent cosmetic and optic condition. Comes with a pair of Nikon N10x Oculars. Zoom range: 0.8x - 4x (zoom). Polarization slide with two Pol filters and one in Object Table.
