Overview

The Microscopy laboratory is used by shipboard paleontologists to identify microfossils for dating the sediments.

Instruments

  • Two Zeiss SV-II binocular zoom microscopes, capable of 4–400× magnification and either reflected or transmitted light viewing, including cross-polarized light capability
  • One Zeiss Axioplan microscope equipped for simultaneous transmitted and reflected polarized light viewing, with a large variety of objectives
  • Two Zeiss Axioskop microscopes equipped for simultaneous transmitted and reflected polarized light viewing, with a large variety of objectives
  • One Zeiss Axiophot microscope equipped for DIC, phase contrast, and fluorescence studies and for cross-polarized light, plane-transmitted light, and darkfield illumination
  • Most microscopes are equipped with SPOT cameras for digital microphotography
  • PICAT to photograph full thin section images in plane- and cross-polarized light (PICAT Quick Start Guide or PICAT User Guide)
  • Please note that proprietary manuals are available upon request and subject to limited use
