Abstract

The interference layer microscopy is a specific technique of microscopy that requires the deposition on the specimen of a thin layer of a transparent dielectric material to enhance the contrast of the observed images. In white light, the different components of the specimen appear as having different and distinctive colors. In this manner, the specimen can be rendered in beautiful colored micrographs. Here, we shortly discuss this technique. We also propose an analysis of a colored image obtained by this technique, analysis made by means of a processing based on RGB histograms.
