Chip-based nanoscopy: an affordable, multi-modal and high-throughput super-resolution imaging platform

Project description

Photonic chip enables super-resolution, high-throughput nanoscopy

Nanoscopy, a combination of techniques that allows the imaging of single molecules with optical microscopes, was awarded the Nobel Prize 2014 for chemistry. Despite its promising potential, however, system complexity, high cost and low throughput are the main roadblocks that are preventing nanoscopy from making a bigger impact. The EU-funded ChipNano project is extending prior work on compact photonic chip-based optical nanoscopy. The new method can increase throughput by 100 times. The sample is placed on top of a photonic chip, capable of both holding and illuminating the sample, enabling scientists to acquire high-resolution images. Photonic chips can be retrofitted to an existing standard optical microscope, converting it to a high-resolution nanoscope. The overall aim is to bring the technology closer to the market.
