They can make tiny cell structures visible: cutting-edge light microscopes offer resolutions of a few tenths of a nanometre—in other words, a millionth of a millimetre. Until now, super-resolution microscopes were much slower than conventional methods, because more or finer image data had to be recorded. Together with partners from Jena, researchers from Bielefeld University have now developed the super-resolution SR-SIM process further. The academics show that SR-SIM is also possible in real time and at a very high imaging rate—and thus suitable for observing movements of very small cell particles, for example. Their findings have been published today (20 September) in the journal “Nature Communications”.[Weiterlesen]
