Super Resolution

Structured Illumination Microscopy

Single molecule localization

STED microscopy

The revolution in super resolution microscopy has been recognised by the award of a Nobel prize in 2014 to Stephan Hell, Eric Betzig and William Moerner. Starting with 4Pi microscopy in 2005, the OIC has implemented the major emerging super resolution technologies including structured illumination microscopy (SIM), single molecule localization (PALM/STORM), and lattice light-sheet, rescan and STED microscopy.
