  • ASTM E1967 - 11 standard test method for the automated determination of refractive index of glass samples using the oil immersion method and a phase contrast microscope

    This technique modifies the sample, in that the glass fragment must be crushed, if it is too large, and immersed in oil for the analysis. Some sample handling, however, would enable the analyst to recover the sample in the crushed form, if necessary. This test method is useful for accurate measurement of ηDt from a ...
