Interactive techniques for classroom experiments and rehearsals may upgrade your university

Customer Story

Knowledge

Microscopy is an essential part of the life and earth sciences at universities. Students use microscopes to gain deeper insight into preparing and examining human, animal or plant cells. For this, they need various microscopy techniques and software for image acquisition and documentation in their lectures. And this is where the Digital Classroom comes into play: connected ZEISS microscopes, the ZEISS imaging software Labscope and digital equipment such as tablets enable an interactive approach to learning and create a motivating and engaging atmosphere for students. They are also inspired by the possibility of working with the tools they use in their everyday lives at university.

Phase Contrast Tomography for Quantitative Analysis

Customer Story

Knowledge

Contemporary high performance structural materials like hypereutectic Al-Si alloy is an attractive class of engineering material that finds application in many critical electronic purposes.  Researchers at Naval Materials Research Laboratory (NMRL) in India used a novel approach of friction stir processing (FSP), a variant of severe plastic deformation process, for microstructural refinement.  In an international collaboration between the NMRL and ZEISS Microscopy, non-destructive three dimensional X-ray imaging, performed with ZEISS Xradia 520 Versa was used to investigate the microstructural modifications obtained by FSP on the Al-30Si alloy.
