Our mission begins where conventional confocal microscopy fails due to lack of spatial resolution.

Welcome to the homepage of the „High Resolution Optical Microscopy“ research group.
Our goal is to advance innovative techniques such as STED (Stimulated Emission Depletion Microscopy) and 4Pi-Microscopy and apply them to biomedical samples in order to unveil sub-cellular structures at a resolution level of a few 10nm.
Please see the examples below to get an impression of what can be achieved with these techniques.
Feel free to contact us, if the optical resolution of confocal fluorescence microscopy becomes a limiting factor in your research work.
