About Polarising Microscopes

The polarising microscope is particularly useful in the study of birefringent materials such as crystals and strained non-crystalline substances. The specimen is illuminated with plane polarised light, and its rotation of this light can be analysed. It is widely used for chemical microscopy and optical mineralogy.

Polarised light microscopy is a quick and convenient method for the identification of salts. The mineralogy and chemistry of salts are determined. Basic polarising microscopes are portable and can be used in any location, consequently, sensitive salts can be identified on-site.
