Zeiss Axio Observer Materials

Research Industrial Grade

Take advantage of the inverted construction of Axio Observer to investigate metallography samples in no time at all. There's no need to refocus, even when changing magnification or switching metallurgical samples. Axio Observer combines the proven quality of ZEISS optics with automated components. Profit from reliability and reproducibility. Using dedicated software modules you can analyze, for example, non-metallic inclusions and grain sizes.

Axio Observer is your open imaging platform: invest in only the features you need today. As requirements change, a simple upgrade keeps your system ready for all materials applications.

  • You will appreciate the stable imaging conditions of Axio Observer, especially when working with high magnifications.
  • Homogeneous illumination across the entire field of view produces brilliant images. You will get reliable, reproducible results every time, thanks to the proven optical quality of ZEISS combined with automated components.
  • Profit from short time-to-image for your metallographic structure analysis with dedicated software modules, e.g. NMI, Grains, Multiphase.
  • Enjoy maximum homogeneity and a stray light free image background in brightfield and darkfield - disturbing stray light is minimized and color aberration is reduced.
  • Investigate your samples with polarization contrast - using fixed analyzers, a measuring analyzer rotating through 360° and a rotating analyzer with rotating full-wave plate. Visualize bireflection and pleochroism on anisotropic samples even if no rotary stage is available.
  • Take advantage of Circular Differential Interference Contrast (C-DIC), a polarization-optical technique which uses circularly polarized light.
