Refractive Index

Highly accurate measurement of refractive index of glass for property specification or to determine similarities and differences between glass compositions.

Our team utilise GRIM3, a 3rd generation Glass Refractive Index Measurement system from Foster + Freeman, for meaurement of refractive index (RI) of glass fragments using the oil-immersion method. This system is widely used in the field of forensic science and is of particular use for the comparative analysis of multiple samples. For example, microscopic fragments can be compared with glass from a suspected source item in order to confirm whether the fragments could have originated from the source item.
