Nanometer-scale Optical Microscopy Resolution Standard

Dr. Zhao has developed a new resolution standard for super-resolution microscopes.  Dr. Zhao’s invention allows for resolution to be tested in an environment that accurately reflects biological experimental conditions, unlike current resolution standards that are attached or etched to the surface of a cover glass.  Dr. Zhao’s invention also allows for determination of axial (z) resolution in addition to the lateral resolution (x,y).
