The 2015 super-resolution microscopy roadmap

Overcoming the diffraction limit in optical microscopy has been a major barrier in obtaining high-resolution images in biophysical and biomedical research. Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics (JPhysD) have just published “The 2015 super-resolution microscopy roadmap”, discussing how researchers have developed super-resolution microscopy to overcome this limit.

Light bite: 100s science video & the IYL

This week we bring you a video feature on recent research into new optical fibres and take the opportunity to showcase some top research from across the JPhys series on light and optical technology as part of the International Year of Light. Lasers, invisibility cloaks, plasmas, nanophotonics and more
