Cargille Refractive Index Liquids

Refractive index liquids are used worldwide for the identification of particles by microscopic immersion techniques, mounting media for matching/contrasting index combinations, dispersion staining, and to calibrate refractometers and other instruments.

Cargille Refractive Index Liquids have a broad range of applications in diversified fields, including:

IDENTIFICATION

Identify minerals, ores, chemicals, specimen fragments, plastics, gems, translucent or transparent solids by microscopic immersion techniques.

MOUNTING MEDIA

Temporarily mount specimens in various index media for matching or contrasting index combinations.

OPTICAL ANALYSIS

Microscopically study solids by dispersion staining, focal masking, and double variation refractometry techniques with high dispersion liquids.

REFRACTOMETRY

Calibrate refractometers and other optical instruments.

SPECTROPHOTOMETRY

Determine refractive index of specimens by referral to calibration curves relating wave length to index of refraction.

OPTICAL COUPLING

Couple optical elements with liquids formulated for refractive index and viscosity.

OPTICAL LENSES

Obtain unique optical properties of hollow lenses by filling with index of refraction liquids.

ELECTRO-OPTICS

Examine and preserve cathode coating without stripping or re-immersion by utilizing oils matching index of crystals.

POLLUTION

Identify particles and particulates from air or water.

FLUID FLOW

Photograph flow patterns by filling test system with refractive index liquids having suspended beads.
