Super resolution microscopy (nanoscopy) refers to optical techniques that go beyond the diffraction limit. STED (stimulated emission depletion), STORM (stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy) are some of the latest, most promising techniques. Super resolution microscopes are very often used as tools for bio-research looking at proteins and biomolecules, they achieve resolution down to the 10 nanometer scale.
Most super-resolution microscopes incorporate some kind of piezoelectric precision positioning device for scanning or focussing. Other ultra-high resolution optical microscopy techniques are known as 4Pi Microscopy, RESOLFT, TIRFM, Structured Illumination, confocal, SPEM, PALM.
