Overcoming the limits of Diffraction with Superresolution on a Chip: ChipScope is the new project heading towards revolutionizing the whole concept of the superresolution microscopy, making it convenient, affordable and available not only for laboratories, but also in everyday life. The fundamental difference with conventional optical microscopy will be that the illumination is made by extremely small individual light sources instead of a wide illumination field and tiny detectors in the camera. http://www.chipscope.eu https://www.facebook.com/chipscope/
