Paper Abstract

This paper presents theoretical and experimental research on super-resolution in optical microscopy. The theoretical analysis is based on partially coherent imaging theory. A source of annular form is used to achieved super-resolving imaging and a significant improvement in the resolving power has been observed experimentally. The imaging of a two-point object and two-bar objects of different spaces and widths are discussed. The displacement of the Gaussian image point and problems associated with this technique are also considered.
