Lx POL Polarizing Microscope

Greater Insight in the Earth and Material Sciences

The highly streamlined Lx POL polarizing microscope delivers reliability and comfort through precision opto-mechanical engineering. Tight design tolerances with the SF (strain-free) optical series produce near-zero optical impurity interference. Careful attention to the sub-stage polarized extinction disc and individually centerable objectives yield a highly controlled light path with respect to stage orientation, and ultimately a sharp contrast image.

Lx POL Advantages:

Labomed Lx POL Polarizing Microscope MaxLite™ Coated Optics

The Lx POL polarizing microscope comes equipped with Labomed® MaxLite™ coated optics, a sputtered hard coating technology that delivers a research grade of anti-reflective and scratch resistant properties. This is most useful in earth and materials sciences applications, where integrity of light transmission and mitigation of internal reflections are critical.

Labomed Lx POL Polarizing Microscope Integrated Anlyzer

For precise conoscopic imaging, an integrated analyzer/Bertrand lens module provides individual flip-in/flip-out of the analyzer and Bertrand lens, with a conveniently located focusing dial. Centration of the Bertrand lens is achieved through easy-access front mounted centering screws. A convenient slider slot will accept a range of compensator plates.

Labomed Lx POL Polarizing Microscope Circular Stage

A large circular stage with two locking brakes is provided, delivering a smooth 360 degrees of rotation. An optional 100x objective further complements the SF series of strain-free optics, ensuring no optical impurities interfere with polarized light. A fixed verticality crosshair is a standard feature, maintaining its orientation as IPD is adjusted.

Two compensator plate slots and two centering tool slots are located onboard the analyzer/Bertrand lens module to prevent unwanted loss of accessories. The microscope comes equipped with λ, 1/4 λ, and Quartz-Wedge plates.
