Nikon's Eclipse polarizing microscopes are renowned for their ability to produce brighter, clearer, and higher contrast images. The LV100 POL, available in diascopic and episcopic microscope illumination types, continues this tradition and offers a completely reengineered base for even easier operation. It also features an exclusive high-intensity halogen light source, which delivers brighter images, lower power consumption and less heat generation, thereby reducing the chance of heat-induced focus drift.
Diascopic (Transmitted) Light Source:
The new high intensity 50W halogen light source incorporates a fly-eye lens design that outputs more light than a 100W lamp. The greater brightness is achieved by optimizing the lamp filament size and optically expanding the size of the light source within the pupil illumination fulfillment.
Lead and Arsenic Free Objective Lenses:
The new CFI LU Plan Fluor EPI P objective series uses eco-glass that is manufactured to the same specifications as Nikon's proprietary infinity optics (CFI60) system, but without harmful substances such as lead and arsenic.
30mm Focusing Stroke:
The focus stroke has been improved to 30mm, facilitating observation of tall samples.
Reversed Centering Nosepiece:
Up to five objectives, ranging from 4x to100x can be mounted to the nosepiece and all five objectives are centerable. The nosepiece is also provided with a DIN compliant compensator slot and it accepts various compensators for advanced quantitative measurements.
Bertrand Lens Incorporated into Design of Intermediate Tube:
The Bertrand lens enables both the observation and capture of conoscopic and orthoscopic images. The Bertrand lens is also focusable and centerable.
