OpenPolScope Hardware Kit

OpenPolScope Hardware Kit
The Hardware Kit available from the OpenPolScope Resource includes:
  1. Liquid Crystal Universal compensator (22mm or 30mm clear aperture, operating wavelength between 450 and 700 nm)
  2. Electronic controller for LC compensator
  3. Interference filter (default provided is ~546nm, can be substituted for another upon request)
  4. Achromatic Circular Polarizer (425nm - 700nm)
  5. Microscope adapter (based on the microscope, this might need custom development)
  6. Included with the OpenPolScope Hardware Kit is Basic support, which includes 1 year online remote training, technical and software support.

Required hardware components for all modes: Wide-field microscope stand (for best results use strain-free objective and condenser optics); Digital camera supported by Micro-Manager 1.4.22 software (legacy ver. 1.4.15 also suppported); Computer with Windows 7/8/10 (64 bit with minimum 4GB RAM recommended), and Micro-Manager 1.4.22 (with ImageJ) installed. For compatible devices, see: www.micro-manager.org.

We strongly recommend reading the article Polarization microscopy with the LC-PolScope, which covers many important aspects about configuring and operating LC-PolScope instrumentation, including the OpenPolScope Hardware Kit.
