Surpassing the Diffraction Barrier in Light Microscopy
This video shows Dr Stefan Hell from Max Planck Institute describing about the diffraction barrier. The diffraction barrier has been the main reason behind limited resolution in light microscopy. It has hampered light microscopy functions for many years. Dr Hell explains how fluorescence processes can be used to surpass the diffraction barrier. Breaking the diffraction barrier has revolutionized light microscopy to a great extent. Nowadays, the super-resolution fluorescence microscopy has become the major standard of imaging.
