Leica 165C Microscope

The Leica microscope has a large working distance between the objective and sample and an incident cold light source to enable our crystallographers to mount single-crystals onto a capillary, prior to measuring the diffraction pattern. Images and dimensions of a crystal can be collected using the CCD camera. When not in use by our crystallographers, the microscope may be used, at no cost, by UNSW researchers who require a low to medium magnification (max.90x) digital image of their sample.
