OptoNano Super Resolution Microscope Microscope technology has advanced from conventional optical solutions into sophisticated super-resolution microscopes. Super-resolution optical imaging can now be found in many research lab settings. However, transcending the ~200 nm barrier to optical imaging in natural ambient air has always been the limitation. An ordinary optical microscope’s capability to observe sub-wavelength structures is limited by Abbe’s Equation that Ernst Abbe found in 1873, also called Abbe’s diffraction limit. (microscopic) Spatial resolution is limited by optical diffraction, which is about half of a light wavelength. In the visible light spectrum, it’s approximately 200 nm.

In the early 2000’s a group of researchers at the National University of Singapore, led by Professor Minghui Hong, began to develop a technology called Optical Microsphere Nanoscopy (OMN). The OMN was incorporated into a revolutionary instrument named the OptoNano, the world’s first nano-scale imaging tool in ambient air with a controllable working distance, providing resolution down to 137 nm with no sample preparation required. The system is manufactured in a partnership with the Sigma Koki group under the brand name of OptoSigma, and Phaos Technology Pte Ltd.

OptoNano microscopes have not only broken the optical limit but also the barriers of high cost and high complexity of operations to super-resolution microscopy. This has opened a new paradigm to enable adoption of this unique super-resolution microscopy technology by users from research labs to bio-chemical scientists to industrial production floor applications.
