Interference contrast? Interphako or Jamin-Lebedeff or Mach-Zehnder

Hi all,

Does anyone here use these methods? I have a ZEISS Jena Perval with Interphako that has some misalignment issues that have prevented me from extensive use. I also have a full Jamin-Lebedeff setup, but it is finicky. I would love to add a Leitz Mach-Zehnder to my collection, but those are hen's teeth!

I would love to find others using these unique techniques.

I have a Jamin-Lebedeff condenser but no matched objectives and beam recombiners. Its a set of techniques I'm quite interested in learning more about and trying for myself but as you said these are extremely difficult to find. If its not too much I'd love to see your Jamin-Lebedeff set and some microscopic images taken with it along with your personal impressions.
