                        terra' un seminario dal titolo:

                     BEYOND THE DIFFRACTION LIMIT OF LIGHT

                                   Abstract:
 The Russian painter Vassilij Kandinsky showed increasing experimentation with
 more structured figurative line forms, like numbers, grids and planes, to both
   unify and direct the visual action within the image field of the painting.
   Similarly, today*s scientists are exploiting microscopy with revolutionary
 creativity, introducing us to a new Era within the image field of microscopic
    bioimaging. This inspires our discussion about photonic investigations.
    Microscopy is an essential tool for analysis of cellular structures and
 function, and the advent of new fluorescent probes and super-resolution light
  microscopy techniques greatly facilitated the study of dynamic processes in
  living cells: the race for resolution improvement is running with different
 approaches. Starting from three-dimensional optical fluorescence microscopy we
will address advanced methods and related applications: from confocal microscopy
  to single molecule detection, from multiphoton imaging to far-field optical
  nanoscopy. We will discuss about how new technology approaches in microscopy
open to us a fundamental window on the complicated and delicate relationships at
                         the basis of cell functioning.
