With Polarized Light Imaging you can directly observe and record sample pictures and videos in real-time for detailed insights into flow-induced crystallization processes, stress distribution of polymers, or local shear induced effects, as they may occur in liquid crystals. Especially in product development the detailed knowledge of crystallization processes and crystal orientation is essential, as they strongly influence the product’s final properties.

Key features

Technical highlights

  • Polarized image recording while shearing the sample with a rheometer
  • Telecentric optics transfers the image directly onto the CCD chip of the camera
  • Movable polarizers for polarized and depolarized images of the sample
  • Circular polarizer option
  • Peltier temperature control: -20 °C to 200 °C
