Techniques of Optical Crystallography
From Monday, July 17 2017
To Friday, July 21 2017
Every day

 Sponsor: Hooke College of Applied Sciences

Description: Identification of crystalline materials with the polarized light microscope is of importance for those working in forensics, soil science, pharmaceuticals, environmental analyses, analysis of pigments, and earth sciences. This class introduces the student to a range of methods used for the identification of crystalline materials. A number of techniques are employed or demonstrated, including immersion methods, crystal rotation methods and the use of rotating compensators. Optical properties of both isotropic and anisotropic comminuted mineral samples are used as examples throughout the course.
