Silver Superlens : Nano-Scaled Optical Imaging

April 22nd, 2005 | Filed under: Biology, Future, Nanotech, News, Photography, Technology | 1 Comment »

Optical microscopes today can focus at about 400 nanometers (enough magnification to see the nucleus of a cell). By using a film of silver and UV light, the superlens can focus at about 60 nanometers. Sharper optics produced by enhancing evanescent waves as they pass the silver superlens, will allow nano-scaled visualization of living materials such as the movements of individual proteins in real-time. The technology would also bring imaging in various industries such as data storage and satellite imaging to a new level.
