Fluorescence can be a useful tool in examining geological specimens. While some minerals from particular locations are quite strongly fluorescent, even the weaker fluorescence of other specimens can aid in their detection and identification. The longwave ultraviolet and royal blue excitation wavelength sets of the Stereo Microscope Fluorescence Adapter are particularly useful for examining samples. NIGHTSEA collaborated with a professional geologist in an investigation of the fluorescence of minerals under blue light excitation.
In photography, a snoot is a tube or similar object that fits over a studio light or portable flash and allows the photographer to control the direction and radius of the light beam. We have created a snoot for the excitation light sources for our Model SFA Stereo Microscope Fluorescence Adapter. While the beam from […]
