The highly streamlined Lx POL 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.
The Lx POL 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, as optimal light angle control and reduction of stray light yield a superior dynamic range and resolution.
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 conveniently positioned slider slot will accept a range of compensator plates.
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.
