Near- field microscopy of living cells . We have evaluated the utility of near- field optical microscopy, with its demonstrated sub- diffraction optical resolution, for fluorescence studies of living cells. We show that the incorporation of a fluorescent feedback method, photon- density feedback, permits near- field studies of living cells.
With this approach it is possible to make local high- resolution point measurements from living cells without impacting the physiology of the system under study. By integrating near- field illumination fibers, with confocal detection, traditional cameras and PMT- based detection methods, we have developed a near- field microscope for biological studies which also permits traditional lens- based optical studies of biological system With this system we are able to make immediate comparisons between confocal and near- field data from the same biological system.
