The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2014 - SUPER-RESOLUTION MICROSCOPY
The Nobel Prize was awarded to Stefan W. Hell, Eric Betzig and William E. Moerner for the development of two super-resolution microscopy methods. Stefan Hell developed the stimulated emission depletion (STED) microscopy. Erich Betzin and William E. Moerner laid the foundation for the single-molecule microscopy.
