Stage micrometer

Definitions

  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • Stage micrometer a graduated device applied to the stage of a microscope for measuring the size of an object.

Usage

In literature:

Insert the eyepiece micrometer inside the ocular and adjust the stage micrometer on the stage of the microscope.
"The Elements of Bacteriological Technique" by John William Henry Eyre
Suppose twenty-two of the spaces on the eye-piece micrometer just cover one of the divisions (1/100th of an inch) on the stage micrometer.
"The Story of the Cotton Plant" by Frederick Wilkinson
***

In science:

The capacitive sensors were calibrated at room temperature by raising the bimorph stage with a three-axis positioner and recording the micrometer readings from the z axis of the positioner along with the capacitive readings.
Constraints on Yukawa-Type Deviations from Newtonian Gravity at 20 Microns
With the probe under vacuum, the three-axis positioning stage tilted due to atmospheric pressure; this tilt did change the correspondence between micrometer and CPS readings.
Constraints on Yukawa-Type Deviations from Newtonian Gravity at 20 Microns
At low temperatures, with the system under vacuum, the capacitive sensors and the room temperature calibrations (rather than the micrometer readings) were used to indicate the relative position and tilt between stages.
