AMO/IQSE SEMINAR SERIES


"Superresolution microscopy with tailored illumination and quantum optical correlations"


Dr. G. S. Agarwal
Texas A&M University

ABSTRACT 

It is well known that the diffraction of light limits the resolution achievable in microscopy. The diffraction barrier to resolution, for example, limits the transverse resolution to about lambda/2. This limit started to be overcome in early nineties by Hell who introduced ideas from quantum mechanics and shaped fields. I will review the newer developments based on the antibunching property of quantum emitters and the strategies based on quantum optical correlations that yield a spatial resolution reaching far into the sub-diffraction regime.
