STED Microscopy whitepaper

STED Microscopy has enabled super resolution imaging to resolve structures of proteins and viruses to below 10nm – several orders below the diffraction limit. Laser Quantum’s opus 660 laser has proved ideal for this imaging technique, with the high power 660nm beam able to create the STED de-excitation needed to achieve these high-resolution images.
