Principle : The microscope in polarized light is an optical microscope which the technology is based on the use of a beam of polarized light (waves vibrating in a single plane). to ensure the polarization of the light, a polarizer is placed after the light source before the sample. the second polarizer, called the analyzer, is placed perpendicular to the first and therefore can not allow to pass the light first-polarized. by contrast, a sample placed between the two polarisateurs disrupts the light beam will adopt new vibration in which some will be able to pass through the analyzer.
Crystallography analysis: Polarized light microscopy
The polarizer microscope allows analysis of the disposition of the minerals between them, to determine their order of crystallization, observing their arrangement according to plans or alignments, in order to highlight the structure of the rock. this technique can also be used to identify different collagen fibers, for example.
