The Technology

Standard optical microscopy has a resolution limit of roughly 200nm which is insufficient for modern Biological research. Research of intra-cellular structures requires sub 50nm resolution for dynamic in-vivo studies. Current methods to achieve such resolution are slow or destructive.

Illuminating the sample through high-index dielectric materials (instead of through an objective) allows fast, real time measurements at sub 50nm resolution and is not destructive to living organisms.
