Super Resolution in Infrared!

Super-localization and super-resolution imaging of single CNTs using photocontrolled luminescence intermittency.

Super-localization and super-resolution imaging of single CNTs using photocontrolled luminescence intermittency.

Photoswitchable nanotubes work well as optical molecular switches and storage elements.

Within an international team of nanoscientists, the research group of Professor Stephanie Reich has investigated functionalized, single-walled carbon nanotubes.

The photo-switching molecules that are covalently attached to the nanotubes allow the diffraction limit of conventional microscopy to be undercut, thus increasing the resolution in the imaging of these nanoobjects.

The research results were published in the journal "Science Advances" on September 27, 2019.
