The Leica DMC comparison microscope is ideally equipped for forensic examination; allowing similarities and differences between two bullets or cartridges to be compared. Split-image and superimposed image comparisons are possible, with the microscope being equipped with a CCD camera for photography and video documentation.

A key feature of the microscope is that the light is focused through the objective, dramatically increasing definition of surface features visible to the eye. The end magnification ranges from 4x to 80x, corresponding to object field sizes of 50mm to 2.5mm. A large variability of clamping and mounts for different objects are available.

The Grim (Glass Refractive Index Measurement) is a machine used to compare glass fragments to see if they match. The fragments of glass are crushed and placed on a glass microscope slide. A few drops of a special type of silicon oil is placed on the crushed glass fragments and then the slide is placed in a heated chamber, known as a hot stage which is placed under a microscope. This resulting image from the microscope is fed via a camera attachment, to a computer. The silicon oil on the slide is heated up slowly by the hot stage which alters the refractive index of the oil. When its refractive index is equal to that of the glass, the glass fragments become invisible!

The computer can determine better then the human eye at which point the glass becomes invisible and records the optimum match temperature. The refractive index is then calculated from two match temperatures made by the computer.
