Abstract : The Universal Stage is an accessory for a polarizing microscope useful in the determination of optical properties of organic and inorganic compounds. Detailed instructions are given for the mounting of crystals, centering the stage, etc. Specialized techniques are given in step-by- step procedures for the orientation of uniaxial and biaxial crystals, the identification of the orientation of uniaxial and biaxial crystals, the identification of the orientation achieved, the mathematical corrections necessary, the determination of the principal refractive indices, optic axial angle, and sign of double refraction. A glossary is included.
