Paper Abstract

A method has been developed that permits the resolution of light microscopy to be extended below the fundamental limit imposed by the wavelength of light. The technique is based on our demonstration that significant light intensities can be passed through well-defined apertures that can be as small as 1/10 the wavelength of visible radiation.
