Metallographic microscopes provide insight into metal microstructures
The microstructure of the metal significantly determines the properties of strength and corrosion resistance. Therefore, detailed study of the microstructure by means of a microscope is at the heart of metallurgical disciplines and many industrial applications. Features of interest in microstructural metallographic studies include grain size, grain boundaries, phases, phase transitions and volume fractions, inclusions, morphology and bands.
Alkaline metals are specially treated to prepare for specific applications and to improve their properties, for example by adding alloying elements. In many cases, the core of microscopy is the correlation between the resulting microstructure and material properties. Microscopy was performed using an upright, inverted or polarized microscope, bright and dark fields, and an electron microscope. Each of them plays an important role in verifying the processing effect and optimizing the processing parameters.
