Digital thin sections

With the acquisition of a computer-controlled stage we are now able to digitise thin sections under the microscope. There are many issues to fix, and questions to answer before we can put a web page online but that’s our goal. This would not replace the student’s experience at UON Earth Sciences with microscopes but complement it.

I have been working on assembling the images from the microscope into large images which can then be broken into tiny tiles to build a responsive web page. This is key for microstructural analysis where the fabric needs to be observed at multiple scales. Watch this space!
