Super-resolution microscopy is a form of light microscopy that allows images to be taken with a higher resolution than the diffraction limit. Several different methods can be used to achieve beyond-diffraction limit resolution and these can be broadly divided in two categories: "true" super-resolution techniques, which capture information contained in evanescent waves, and "functional" super-resolution techniques, which use clever experimental techniques and known limitations on the matter being imaged to reconstruct a super-resolution image.
