15th Day of Microscopy
on September 15, 2016
from 8:30 am to 6:15 pm at Volksbad Jena, Knebelstraße 10

Superresolution microscopy has stepped into the lime light in 2014 when Eric Betzig, Stefan Hell and William Moerner were awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their work on breaking through the diffraction barrier of fluorescence microscopy.

The part Eric Betzig played in this ground-breaking achievement was the invention of Photoactivated Localization Microscopy (PALM) along with his colleague Harald Hess. 

We look forward to seeing you.
