Modern Polarized Light Microscopy
From Monday, November 27 2017
To Friday, December 01 2017
Every day

 Sponsor: Hooke College of Applied SciencesDescription: In this Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM) training course students learn the most direct and powerful application of polarized light to characterize and identify hundreds, if not thousands, of microscopic particles types based on their physical and optical properties. Fibers, pigments, food products, pollen grains, spores, hairs, glass, combustion products, pharmaceuticals, explosives, minerals and other crystalline and non-crystalline materials can be identified rapidly and accurately with the polarizing light microscope.

The experts at Hooke College of Applied Sciences teach students how to apply both quantitative and qualitative analyses to solve microscopical materials problems. Students learn time honored and highly specialized PLM methods that can be applied successfully to the solutions of virtually all problems in the materials sciences. Training is achieved through lecture/demonstration and, above all, many practical exercises utilizing known and unknown samples.

The Course Outline below lists major topics that are presented during the course.

It is no longer a question of “What can you do with a footprint?” but rather, “Who can we use to evaluate the footprint?” Cases involving pedal evidence, especially bloody footprints and issues of determining shoe sizing or fit issues compared to questioned footwear, have become more common over the past two or three years.
