  • The use of these dyes in STED nanoscopy leads to images of high-quality with respect to brightness and signal-to-background ratio; further the resolution over that of more traditional optical microscopes is significantly improved giving more detailed structural information.


  • All eyes are now on Göttingen to see just how far optical nanoscopy can go.


  • Stefan Hell saw beyond this limitation and about fifteen years ago his vision became concrete; he developed a method for observing objects at the nanometer scale by sequentially turning the fluorescence of nearby molecules off by stimulated emission, a technique known as STED nanoscopy.

  • The N-STORM instrumentation will be capable of multi-spectral two-dimensional and three-dimensional nanoscopy, with lateral resolution to approximately 20nm and axial resolution to approximately 50nm, extending the role of the optical microscope to near molecular level resolution.
