|Title:||Beyond the diffraction limit : far-field fluorescence imaging with ultrahigh resolution||Authors:||Rice, James H.||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/4462||Date:||Nov-2007||Abstract:||Fluorescence microscopy is an important and extensively utilised tool for imaging biological systems. However, the image resolution that can be obtained has a limit as defined through the laws of diffraction. Demand for improved resolution has stimulated research into developing methods to image beyond the diffraction limit based on far-field fluorescence microscopy techniques. Rapid progress is being made in this area of science with methods emerging that enable fluorescence imaging in the far-field to possess a resolution well beyond the diffraction limit. This review outlines developments in far-field fluorescence methods which enable ultrahigh resolution imaging and application of these techniques to biology. Future possible trends and directions in far-field fluorescence imaging with ultrahigh resolution are also outlined.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||RSC Publishing||Copyright (published version):||2007, The Royal Society of Chemistry||Keywords:||Nano-IR;Infrared absorption;Nanoimaging;Nanoscopy;Imaging;Chemical mapping;AFM||DOI:||10.1039/B705460B||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
