Optical Microscopy (OM)
The Optical Microscope or the light microscope uses light and a lens system to magnify the object. The Development & Testing department of Mat-Tech still often uses this microscope to check various metal components and connections and to detect and record errors. The images are digitally recorded and are also immediately visible on a screen.
A more powerful microscope is the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) which we have here at our Development & Testing facility.
