Microscopy Revolutions

Abstract:
Chris Phoenix: Two new and very cool microscopy techniques have been announced recently. One, the optofluidic microscope, could put an entire microscope, including display, into a device the size of an iPod. The other, photoactivated localization microscopy (PALM), was invented by two unemployed scientists with $50,000 in two months. And both microscopes are sub-wavelength--they use light to gather images that can be more detailed than the so-called diffraction limit.
