Overcoming “The Diffraction Limit”
Resolution in light microscopes is limited by diffraction to approximately 200–250 nanometers, but much of biology occurs on much shorter (molecular) length scales. Scientists have been struggling to circumvent the limits of diffraction for more than one hundred years. Electron microscopy can image with nanometer resolution, but so far cannot be used to image living specimens. Super-resolution imaging techniques, which can break the diffraction barrier, are in great demand.
