High Resolution Microscopy and Spectroscopy Techniques in Biological Specimen Analysis
Abstract: In the last 20 years of scientific competence high-resolution data collection capabilities has increased substantially in parallel with the development in light technology. Spatial resolution capacity below the size of single atoms and temporal resolution capacity down to attoseconds has entered research laboratories towards the end of the 20th century. Today as in physics and chemistry, biology too, probably to a larger extent, benefits from increased resolution and information from smaller detail of matter. Several examples of high resolution microscopy on biological systems will be presented in this talk underlying the state-of-the-art in photonics research.
