scope:

1.1 This guide outlines various suggested methods which may be followed in the photography of metals and materials with the reflected-light microscope. Methods are included for preparation of prints and transparencies in black-and-white and in color, using both direct rapid and wet processes.

1.2 Descriptive material is provided where necessary to clarify procedures. References are cited where detailed descriptions may be helpful. Guidelines are suggested to yield photomicrographs of typical subjects and, to the extent possible, of atypical subjects as well. Information is included concerning techniques for the enhanced display of specific material features.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific precautionary statements are given in Appendix X1.7.

1.4 The sections appear in the following order:

Contents Section Magnification 4 Reproduction of photomicrographs 5 Optical systems 6 Illumination sources 7 Illumination of specimens 8 Focusing 9 Filters for photomicrography 10 Illumination techniques 11 Photographic materials 12 Photographic exposure 13 Photographic processing 14 Suggestions for visual use of metallographic microscopes X1 Guide for metallographic photomacrography X2 Video image printing X3
