Quantum enhanced optical microscopy
Optical microscopy is a powerful tool, as it has been the workhorse of physical,
biological and medical research for over five centuries. Nevertheless, it is known
that microscopy has some limitations. In this talk, I will show that two such major
limitations can be overcome, namely improving the sensitivity and the resolution
of standard optical microscopy, using quantum optical principles.
Conventionally, standard microscopy uses classical sources of light and simple
cameras. By employing quantum light and quantum correlation
measurements, one can achieve sub-shot-noise imaging sensitivities and
super-resolution beyond the diffraction limit, respectively.
