Scanning Near-Field Optical Microscopy

  • U. C. Fischer
Part of the NanoScience and Technology book series (NANO)

Abstract

Light microscopy, which was invented more than 300 years ago, is a very important technique in various fields of science, especially in biology. By successive improvements of the optical components and the recent invention of the confocal microscope, imaging with a light microscope down to the fundamental diffraction limit has become possible. With a confocal light microscope a resolution of about 0.2 µm is achieved in the visible spectral range using oil immersion optics, as demonstrated in Fig. 7.1.

Keywords
