Localization Microscopy: Overcoming the Abbe Diffraction Barrier

An article published in Wiley Online, PhotonicsViews, focuses on localization microscopy, and how high–power continuous wave lasers can be used in super-resolution microscopy. Super-resolution microscopy overcomes the Abbe diffraction barrier, thus allowing resolution greater than 200-300 nm. The article details the principles of single-molecule localization microscopy (SMLM). This technique enables improved resolution by mapping individual photon … Continue reading
