Abstract

Achieving higher resolution scales in optical microscopy allow a more rigorous investigation into the detailed components of cell systems. This higher resolution is typically achieved through super-resolution techniques utilizing methods inside the wave-like nature of light such as point spread function shaping and fluorophore switching. We wish to leverage both particle-like and wave-like natures of light to make a diffraction unlimited protocol. Our protocol uses the well known Hanbury Brown and Twiss (HBT) apparatus in combination with a customized second-order cross-correlation protocol. By performing least squares fitting of the HBT and intensity measurements we obtain diffraction unlim..
