Cargille Refractive Index Liquids have a broad range of applications in diversified fields, including:
Identify minerals, ores, chemicals, specimen fragments, plastics, gems, translucent or transparent solids by microscopic immersion techniques.
Temporarily mount specimens in various index media for matching or contrasting index combinations.
Microscopically study solids by dispersion staining, focal masking, and double variation refractometry techniques with high dispersion liquids.
Calibrate refractometers and other optical instruments.
Determine refractive index of specimens by referral to calibration curves relating wave length to index of refraction.
Couple optical elements with liquids formulated for refractive index and viscosity.
Obtain unique optical properties of hollow lenses by filling with index of refraction liquids.
Examine and preserve cathode coating without stripping or re-immersion by utilizing oils matching index of crystals.
Identify particles and particulates from air or water.
Photograph flow patterns by filling test system with refractive index liquids having suspended beads.
