Some Uses of Color in Metallography


The application of various methods for using color in metallography is outlined. The methods include plane and circularly polarized light, color etching, and color separation photography. Instruments used to obtain subjects for the color metallography examples shown in this paper include the optical microscope, the electron probe microanalyzer, the scanning electron microscope, and the transmission electron microscope. A brief discussion of color films is given. The technique used to obtain color photographs is given in detail for each aspect of color metallography discussed.
