Toward Super-Resolution Microscopy in vivo
Super-resolution microscopy techniques have opened the way for fluorescence microscopy at resolutions better than the Abbe diffraction limit of about half the wavelength. However, these techniques have thusfar been limited mainly to relatively thin specimens, often fixed. Currently, depths of about 3 micrometers have been imaged at 10-15 nm resolutions using the STORM technique. My research in Dr. Jia's lab focuses on bringing this super-resolution methods to thick sections of tissue and living organisms. This builds on Dr. Jia's published work using minimally-diffracting, self-healing Airy beams to localize individual fluorophores in three dimensions.
