Knight A, Kaminski CF and Sauer M, Super-resolution fluorescent methods: where next for super-resolution? Methods Appl. Fluoresc. 3 (2015) 030201 DOI: doi:10.1088/2050-6120/3/3/030201 |
Revolutionary experimental techniques often wait decades before receiving formal recognition. However, the awarding of the 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry to some of the originators of super-resolution microscopy is an exception, and shows how rapidly these new techniques—which overturn what was for long thought to be a fundamental experimental limitation—have made an impact.
