Explaining STED Microscopy by Boris Zarda from Leica Microsystems

Dr. Boris Zarda from Leica Microsystems shows the differences of confocal microscopy and STED microscopy on the basis of different examples.

Stimulated emission depletion microscopy, or STED microscopy, is a fluorescence microscopy technique that uses the non-linear de-excitation of fluorescent dyes to overcome the resolution limit imposed by diffraction with standard confocal laser scanning microscopes and conventional far-field optical microscopes. Therefore, it is also described as a form of super-resolution microscopy.
