From the Lab: Nanotechnology

Abstract:
Corie Lok and Stu Hutson: A team from the University of California, Berkeley, has devised a silver "superlens" that could increase the resolution of light microscopy by about a factor of six. The lens doesn't diffract light like conventional glass lenses. Instead, it uses evanescent waves, which are produced when light hits a lens at such an angle that it bounces off instead of passing through.
