About

Polarization microscopy is a contrast technique taking advantage of the optical properties of birefringent materials like bone, collagen, tendons… Birefringent objects interact differently with light depending its polarization and orientation creating contrast in the sample. Polarised light microscopy does not require any staining but works only with anisotropic samples.
