Title

The development of microscopy for super-resolution: Confocal microscopy, and image scanning microscopy

Publication Name

Applied Sciences (Switzerland)

Abstract

Optical methods of super-resolution microscopy, such as confocal microscopy, structured illumination, nonlinear microscopy, and image scanning microscopy are reviewed. These methods avoid strong invasive interaction with a sample, allowing the observation of delicate biological samples. The meaning of resolution and the basic principles and different approaches to superresolution are discussed.
