We have won a grant from Innovate UK to further our work with microspheres in the microscopy sector. Their support will allow us to bring our microsphere powered nanoscpes to market by 2017.
Our Chairman, Lin Li, demonstrated how a microsphere can amplify evanescent waves and create virtual super-resolution images in 2011. You can read his full paper, published in Nature, here.
We are working with Innovate UK to bring an optical nanoscope to market that is reliable, repeatable, and provides a high image throughput for a low cost. And of course, sees in super-resolution.
