Super-resolution Microscopy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


For over a century, the resolution of microscopes has been limited by the wavelength of the light emitted by the sample, a limit known as Abbe's limit. During the past 10 years, a number of imaging techniques, reviewed in this chapter, have allowed this apparent limitation to be overcome, to obtain microscopic images with essentially unlimited resolution.
