A quantum microscope developed at the University of Queensland can resolve cellular structures that would otherwise be impossible to see. The technology overcomes a significant barrier to furthering microscopy for biological imaging.
According to professor Warwick Bowen, who leads the school’s Quantum Optics Laboratory, a major trend in the development of microscopes is the use of intense sources of illumination. A number of precision microscopes use sources that are a trillion times brighter than the sun. Practically speaking, the intensity can’t be increased further as doing so damages the sample being inspected.
