Zeiss Photomicroscope DIC Inko questions.

Post by sebba28 »

Is this dic condenser the correct one for Zeiss Photomicroscope?

I also have a Zeiss DIC slider no.II


I tried to set the DIC but it is not possible. Interferential bands do not match.The microscope is equipped with a fluorescent module and I wonder if dic works with this fluorescent module or should I remove it and use standard nose piece for objectives?
Any advice appreciated

- Yes, they are the right parts for DIC with the Zeiss PM and the adequate objectives (in principle only some Plan achromats and neofluars, although some others would work well enough)
- If your Florescence equipment increases the distance from the objective to the Inko (DIC) prism yes, it will need to be removed. The position of both Nomarski prisms respect to the objective back focal plane is critical for DIC
