Quantum Dots Help Sharpen Nanoscale Microscopy

Quantum Dots Help Sharpen Nanoscale Microscopy

The 2014 chemistry Nobel Prize recognized important microscopy research that enabled greatly improved spatial resolution. This innovation, resulting in nanometer resolution, was made possible by making the source (the emitter) of the illumination quite small and by moving it quite close to the object being imaged.
