A Stimulated Emission Depletion (STED) Microscope of All Trades
Finzel, L., Reuss, M.
Super-resolution microscopy gives researchers invaluable opportunities and continues to make great strides in terms of performance and applicability. Clever developments in stimulated emission depletion (STED) microscopy have pushed the doors open wider for many applications. Here, we discuss three examples: first, how time-resolved detection unlocks new information; then, live-cell imaging enabled by intelligent illumination schemes; and finally, deep tissue imaging with dynamic aberration correction. As an outlook, we examine MINFLUX as an approach for molecular resolution with fluorescence.
