Nobel prize awarded for optical super-resolution microscopy

Nobel prize awarded for optical super-resolution microscopy

The inventors of single molecule localisation and stimulated emission depletion (STED) super-resolution microscopy were today honoured with the Nobel prize for chemistry. One of the key applications of super-resolution imaging, pioneered by the Laser Analytics Group and mentioned by the Nobel Assembly, is the study of protein aggregation reactions in the context of neurodegenerative diseases.
