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 locations.
The experimental setup for this article includes three high power, continuous-wave, solid-state lasers from Laser Quantum. These devices belong to the gem family of continuous wave (CW) lasers, specifically the gem 473, the gem 561 and the gem 640.
