High-resolution microscope in Physical Review Letters

A 100-micron-wide drop of glycerin (dark ellipse) acts as a parabolic focusing mirror in a new technique that can reveal details smaller than a wavelength of light using an ordinary microscope. The blue is scattered laser light.

ISR-affiliated professor Christopher Davis (ECE) and ECE Associate Research Scientist Igor I. Smolyanivov are in the news for their work on a high resolution 2-D plasmon microscope. Their work has been accepted for publication in an upcoming issue of Physical Review Letters, perhaps the most prestigious of all physics journals.
