The thin section preparation is used to make or produce sections of soft sediments (lacustrine and marine), hard rock, minerals, frozen kernels, organic materials, soils, ores and hygroscopic samples such as salts and clays. Thick and thin sections, ultrathin sections, polished sections, polished sections (single and double-sided), scattering devices, single crystals and reference samples of various formats can be produced. These are then used for further analysis on optical microscopes as …
