Polarized microscopes could be a metaphor for all science. They combine ordinary and extraordinary, and reveal exciting truths about the invisible world around us.
Now, if you want to be more specific, ordinary and extraordinary are the types of light waves that pass through samples in a polarizing microscope. The light waves are reconstituted by a filter after passing through the sample, and a high contrast image of the structure of a sample results.
One of the neatest things about polarizing microscopy is the ability to examine different aspects of a sample by rotating the filter - adjusting the way the polarized light hits the sample. Pieces of your sample will disappear (go black) as the light touches them at different angles, highlighting other parts of the sample. Clues, if you will, about the properties of the sample.
Usually used in geology for observing rocks and minerals, polarizing microscopes are also useful in metallurgy, chemistry, biology, and physical medicine. You can get a really good look at bones or muscle tissue using polarized microscopy.
Young scientists love the magic of revealing invisible structures in real time. In a classroom, polarized microscopes are always a hit. And they’re still fun no matter how many years you have behind the lens.
