Once the diffraction limit in microscopy was discovered by Carl Zeiss and Ernst Abbe in the late 19th century, the basic function of the microscope didn’t change for the next 100 years, said Eric Betzig, the 2014 co-winner of the Nobel Prize in physics. But thanks to the development of technologies such as brightfield microscopy and the use of fluorescent tags, the microscope was able to play a role in some of the most significant advances in molecular biology in the last 30 years, he said.
