Abstract

Breaking the diffraction limit in microscopy by utilizing the quantum properties of light has been the goal of intense research in recent years. We propose a super-resolution technique based on nonclassical emission statistics of fluorescent markers, routinely used as contrast labels for bioimaging. The technique can be readily implemented with current technology.
