The Micro Imaging Lab contains a GIGAmacro Magnify2 robotic imaging system complete with a capture/processing computer, Samsung LCD screen, Canon EOS Rebel T5i camera with lens options (such as a polarizer).  The camera is affixed to a robotic arm above a platform.  The system allows the user to control the robotic arm and camera through dedicated software.  It combines focal stacking, image stitching, and 3D depthmaps for very high resolution imaging of thin sections and other materials within the imaging area of 63.5 cm (X) x 53.4 cm (Y) x 25.4 cm (Z).  More information about the system may be found on the GIGAmacro website at
