Motorized, pressurized, hot/cold microscope shear stage for Procter and Gamble
This microscope stage was developed by HPD to facilitate the microscopic evaluation of various fluids under
conditions of shear flow. The stage allowed control of the shear disc rotation speed, the gas pressure surrounding
the cell, and the temperature from 0°-200° C. The stage was mounted to a Nikon microscope with illumination from
below and viewing from above. HPD designed and built the stage and wrote the control system code.
