    Event Title: Polarized Light and Differential Interference Contrast in Metallography

    REGISTER HERE

    Speaker: Sonika Gahlawat, Ph.D., Supervisor, Advanced Workflow, Leica Microsystems

    Event Description:

    This presentation will provide a brief review of the fundamentals of polarized light microscopy and image formation using differential interference contrast and will explore applications of both techniques in metallography for numerous materials systems, including but not limited to metals, ceramics, and composites. An application discussion will cover details of the actual imaging techniques, including relevant settings on the microscope and user interface, regardless of make and model, as well as illustrative micrographs captured using the two techniques with an emphasis on the type of information that can be extracted from them about the microstructure.

    Key Learnings

    • When and how to use polarized light and differential interference contrast techniques in metallography
    • What type of information about the materials system or microstructure could be gathered from each technique
    • Example applications for a vast variety of materials systems

    Speaker(s) Bio:

     

    Before joining Leica Microsystems in 2020, Sonika was a failure analysis engineer at Schlumberger, a leading oilfield services provider. In that role, Sonika led failure investigations of downhole drilling tools, which included fatigue and corrosion of ferrous and non-ferrous alloys, she also assisted in new product development, led investigations with external suppliers and developed standardized procedures for metallography, hardness testing and EDS analysis. Prior to that, she received her Ph.D. and worked as a research assistant at the University of Houston where she was the first author of four publications related to thermoelectric materials.
