48_51b/2009Inside Cover: Far-Field Nanodiagnostics of Solids with Visible Light by Spectrally Selective Imaging (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 51/2009)

The spatial resolution of a microscope based on focusing optics is restricted by the Abbe diffraction limit. In their Communication on page 9747 ff., A. V. Naumov, J. Köhler, and co-workers show that far-field imaging and spectroscopy of a giant ensemble of single fluorescent molecules provides structural information about the polycrystalline sample on a nanometer length scale, which is well below the Abbe limit. The obtained image reveals clear correlations between the locations of the chromophores and their spectral properties.
