Conceiving the Future of Microscopy, beyond Diffraction Limit

Prof. Fu-Jen Kao (j б)

Abstract

    In the last decade, super-resolution techniques, including stimulated emission depletion (STED), structured illumination, and localization scheme, have revolutionized optical microscopy and related applications. The spatial resolution has now achieved a few tens of nanometers, greatly surpassing the Abbe's diffraction limit and allowing unprecedented imaging of micro-structures, particularly in life sciences.

    This presentation will discuss the working principles, the challenges, and the implications following the above advancements.
