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

A Cost-Efficient Open-Source Laser Engine for Microscopy

Researchers from EBML in Heidelberg and the University of Jena recently published a paper entitled: “A cost-efficient open source laser engine for microscopy”. The abstract of this paper states: “Scientific-grade lasers are costly components of modern microscopes. For high-power applications, such as single-molecule localization microscopy, their price can become prohibitive. Here, we present an open-source … Continue reading
