Olympus Reflection Microscope (BX51)

Equipment

Overview

The Olympus BX51 upright microscope offers reflection mode (for opaque samples) and transmission light illumination, with the additional capability for fluorescence imaging. Current applications include characterisation of silicon wafers and devices, organic/inorganic thin films and biological samples.

Features of the BX51 include:

  • Large mechanical stage, rotatable 200 degrees
  • U-PO3 polariser slider for reflected light with U-AN360-3 analyser for reflected light (360 degrees)
  • Micropublisher 3.3 real-time viewing camera (QImaging)
  • Brightfield, darkfield, fluorescence, DIC
