Abstract

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.
