Microscopes are used in countless applications and within any of these uses are surfaces that pose a challenge for clear inspection and imaging. Often times a reflective surface is hard to view completely and accurately however by using a polarizer these surfaces are easily revealed for clear and effective viewing.
Many Dino-Lite microscope cameras include a built-on adjustable polarizer that allows users to simply rotate the polarizer for adjustment in viewing effectiveness
Reflective surfaces are not the only way that polarization can help. A simple cross polarization microscope is attainable by using a polarized Dino-Lite microscope and the BL-ZW1 Polarizing Backlight stage.
Polarized light also has a dramatic effect on the viewing of skin, revealing more details beneath the surface than otherwise unseen under normal lighting conditions
