Vasily Astratov Develops New Approach to Achieve Optical Super-resolution

Optical super-resolution is an extremely important and popular direction of research inthe areas of materials characterization and in life sciences. The resolution of conventional microscope systems has a fundamental limitation determined by the diffraction of light, typically half the wavelength of light. Increasing the resolution beyond the diffraction limit enables imaging the nanoscale world with visible light.
