"Superresolution microscopy with tailored illumination and quantum optical correlations"

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


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.
