ANSOM Microscope Achieves Sub 10nm Resolution

Abstract:
The idea behind near-field microscopy is to offer a technique by which extremely small structures (at the nanometer level) can be measured and manipulated. However, 20 nanometers has been the best resolution accomplished. Until now.

"We were able to resolve molecules when they were only 15 nanometers apart," Stephen Quake tells PhysOrg.com. Quake and his group at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena have created a fluorescence near-field microscope that can distinguish single molecules. The results are published in an article titled "Fluorescence Near-Field Microscopy of DNA at Sub-10 nm Resolution" in Physical Review Letters.
