Potato starch grains. Differential interference contrast (DIC) light micrograph of starch grains from a potato. The starch grains are highly refractive and this form of polarised light microscopy, also known as Nomarski microscopy, produces the contrast shown here. This is a Victorian preparation, photographed on a modern microscope.
