Part of our research
involves advanced light microscopy approaches. A large amount of
teaching and tutorial material is available on the web in this field.
In this page, I would like to post some useful links.
In addition, you
will find here tutorial material developed in our lab and from our
interactions with collaborators.
links: in the pages
mentioned below you will find more
links to relevant imaging sites.
Imaging A core regional facility microscopy
with strong and vast methodological and technical expertise in many
fields of imaging, in addition
capacity for advanced training. Our
laboratory is part of this facility as an "associated research group
specialized in high spatial resolution imaging".
microscopy primer A web-based teaching resource
with extremely good quality material. The site is regularly updated to
meet technological advances in the microscopy field.
microscopy resource center Similar to the above site,
with which it shares part of the information. Perhaps even more
complete than the above site, in particular interactive tutorials.
deconvolution This is a site based on "Wiki" web
programming (see here
for explanations), i.e. a resource site with possiblity to edit and
enter new information yourself! The Wikipedia is a large Editable
encyclopedia, and the link is about restoration of
microscopically acquired images by the process of "Deconvolution".
Wikipedia: Super resolution microscopy
Super-resolution microscopy is a form of light microscopy. Due to the
diffraction of light, the resolution of conventional light microscopy
is limited as stated by Ernst Abbe in 1873. A good approximation of the
resolution attainable is the FWHM (full width at half-maximum) of the
point spread function, and a precise widefield microscope with high
numerical aperture and visible light usually reaches a resolution of
~250 nm. Super-resolution techniques allow the capture of images with a
higher resolution than the diffraction limit. They fall into two broad
categories, "true" super-resolution techniques, which capture
information contained in evanescent waves, and "functional"
super-resolution techniques, which uses clever experimental techniques
and known limitations on the matter being imaged to reconstruct a
super-resolution image. This well-written Wikipedia
page discusses the various super resolution approaches available to
