Olympus BX51 Microscope

The BX51P polarizing microscope is an investigative tool for the identification of isotropic and anisotropic materials, forensic analysis, thin film/polymer/crystal identification, and extraneous particulates. 

Olympus has designed its polarizers and polarizing condensers to further enhance performance in polarized light. This means a higher EF* value, resulting in unmatched image brightness and contrast.

*EF value: the ratio of brightness of parallel Nicols to orthogonal(Cross) Nicols. The higher is the EF value, the less is the strain of the optical system. This means that a higher EF value is superior in polarization characteristics.

Observations can be performed comfortably and efficiently thanks to the Y-shape frame. This greatly lessens operator's fatigue during the extended observation.
