Description of the training activity
This training session will cover the basics of super resolution in photonic microscopy, principally: STED microscopy (STimulated Emission Depletion) and single molecule localization microscopy. We will also present alternative solutions for super resolution like SRRF (Super resolution Radial Fluctuations), Airy Scan, or Computer based pixel-reassignment like ISM (Image Scanning Microscopy), and solution based on light sheet illumination. The mornings will be dedicated to theoretical lectures and application seminars. The afternoons will allow the participants to see demonstrations of these different techniques in front of home-made or commercial systems. The fourth day will be a full hands-on day, as participants will be invited to bring their own samples and test them on the different systems available, like STED microscope, STORM, lattice light sheet, ISM, SRRF….
