Bioimaging: Vector optics for super-resolution microscope

Shunichi SATO1

Vector beams are the light beams whose polarization distributions are not spatially uniform. Based on this, many new properties including small spot formation beyond the diffraction limit have been discovered. The generation methods and their application to a super-resolution microscope using vector beams are introduced.
