Application Note: Microscopic Methods in Metallography Using ZEISS Axio Observer
20 June 2016

Knowledge of the structure, crystal structure, and micromorphology, as well as elemental composition and distribution are essential for ensuring safety in designs and components of all sizes – ranging from fields of mechanical engineering and aeronautical engineering to power station engineering and electrical engineering. The observed structures, which are responsible for the properties of the materials to a significant extent, are becoming increasingly smaller and therefore more difficult to differentiate. This application note demonstrates the high resolution analysis of metal samples using the ZEISS Axio Observer.
