This all-purpose polarization microscope is suitable for a variety of functions such as those involving geology, mineralogy and fossil fuels. The ZEISS Axio Lab.A1 additionally provides solutions for a number of difficulties such as refractive indices, cleavages, double refraction and extinction angles as well as others. The product has measuring compensators which serve to extent its range.
The product's 360° rotary stage is useful in measuring both cleavages and extinction angles. The relative optical character of fibrous substances can be determined and small path differences made visual using either the rotatable or fixed compensators. A logically coupled analyzer and Bertrand lens are other features of this conoscopy stand.
