Leica DM4 P, 2700 P & 750 P

_DM-Polarization-buehneCrystal Clear

Upright Microscopes for Polarization Leica DM4 P, DM2700 P & DM750 P

If you would like to investigate crystalline structures, polarization microscopy will serve you best. Whether it be minerals, plastics and polymers, drugs and pharmaceuticals, or pigments and cement, with our polarization microscopes you will see what interests you most as a researcher or in quality assurance.

Depending on your application, you can choose from three different systems for polarization microscopy:

  • The fully coded and semi-automated Leica DM4 P
  • The manual Leica DM2700 P
  • The Leica DM750 P educational microscope



_DM4-P_opticsGet Optimal Results

You need a few components to get what you aim for in polarization. These are the most important:

  • Strain-free optics, because you need to be sure that the observed birefringence results from the sample and not from the optics
  • LED illumination is crucial, because it lights the samples homogenously and at a constant color temperature
  • Polarizers will make birefringence visible and a rotatable stage enables you to align the sample and optical axis
  • You need a Bertrand lens for conoscopic observation of the optical axis and compensators for measurement tasks



_light-ledThere will be Light!

LED illumination saves you money in many ways: It consumes less energy than halogen illumination, and does not need to be replaced, causing downtime of your instrument, because it has a lifetime of up to 25,000 hours. Further advantages:

  • LED lights your samples homogeneously and at a constant color temperature, providing you with a realistic impression of your sample
  • LED adjusts light intensity fast so you can work smoothly
  • LED requires no daylight filter since the LED already provides constant light temperature of 4500 K
  • LED produces little heat, and therefore does not need a cooling fan
  • LED lets you work undisturbed, because no cooling fan makes a noise around you



_DM4-P_side_01Completely at Your Service: Leica DM4 P

If you want to do everything in polarization microscopy, you can with the Leica DM4 P.

Store and recall information with coded components

  • When you change objectives, illumination intensity and aperture settings are recalled with the Illumination Intensity Control and Contrast Manager.
  • Acquired images are always calibrated due to the coded nosepiece.

Identify interesting structures

  • With the large 25-mm field of view you get a perfect overview.
  • A lower magnification rather than the detailed view often reveals the specific information you need – just think of flow or deformation structures or zonation by cooling processes.



_DM4-P_objectiveGet your Nosepiece Around it!

Get different sample information from different magnifications of the 6-objective nosepiece.

  • Use a 2.5x overview objective to identify macro structures in your sample
  • Change to 63x magnification for detailed investigations of optical properties by means of conoscopy
  • Switch to 100x to inspect phase reactions along grain boundaries

By the way: The nosepiece is also coded, so that it supports you intelligently.



_illumination_03Best of Both Illuminations

You can configure the Leica DM4 P with LED illumination either for transmitted light or incident light or with LED for both transmitted light an incident light in one go.

  • Incident light is mandatory for all who perform reflectivity measurements, for example looking at ores or coal.
  • Transmitted light is required for birefringence measurements, for example in inspection of geological thin sections, polymer foils, or drugs.
  • For specific applications such as in geological research, both are necessary.

When the microscope is equipped for both incident and transmitted light, the associated objective, that is with or without cover glass correction, should be used from magnification >10x.



Investigate Optical Properties

Conoscopy is used to investigate interference figures. Their shape and the modifcation achieved by compensators yields information about the optical properties of the investigated material. You can determine the number of optical axis, the angle(s) of optical axis and the optical character of the material.

The Leica DM4 P is ideally suited to conoscopy:

  • Strain-free objectives with high magnification and high numerical aperture are a must for this application.
  • Use special 63x Leica objectives that fulfill the highest requirements of polarization class 5 to obtain optimal results.

Great Flexibility: Leica DM2700 P

If you do not need full automation and maximum reproducibility, the Leica DM2700 P is your instrument of choice. Apart from the automation, it offers a flex_dm2700p-double_01ibility which is similar to the Leica DM4 P.

  • Get distinct sample information with 5 objectives on the 5-fold centerable objective revolver
  • Get large overviews from the 22-mm field of view
  • Obtain a better contrast with UC-3D illumination at incident light observation



_dm750p-doubleThe Champion in Education: Leica DM750 P

In education you need a robust tool that students can use every day. You can easily plug and play it – that’s what we call best preconditions for successful learning.

  • Get into the details of your samples with 4 objectives
  • Use the 20-mm field of view for a good overview
  • Enjoy the practical details the instrument offers: You can carry it by its handle and stow away its cable inside the instrument
