Choosing the right illumination is essential with stereo microscopes and is mostly determined by the transparency of the object.
With non transparent objects, an incident or epi-illumination will be used. An incident illumination can be coaxial or for a certain angle. With transparent or partial transparent objects, a transmitted or diascopic illumination can be used. Sometimes, using both incident and transmitted illumination at the same, can give better results in order to reveal some details.
The geometry, surface structure and material composition of the object are also important parameters for choosing the best illumination solution.
