Instructions for authors
Optical Nanoscopy is devoted to the rapid dissemination of original works on principles, development, and applications of optical imaging with spatial resolution substantially better than half the wavelength of light. The journal will have an emphasis on far- field optical approaches with resolution at the nanometer scale, as well as on advancements of near-field optical microscopy.
Optical Nanoscopy will be interdisciplinary, encompassing all aspects of optical nanoscopy, including theory and novel concepts of subdiffraction resolution imaging, experimental demonstration of novel concepts, major developmental progress, the improvement of the chemistry of fluorophores and labels including fluorescent and switchable molecules, fluorescent proteins or Q-dots, and applications to any field in science, in particular, biology, medicine, and the material sciences. Example topics include the principles, developments, and applications of nanoscopy concepts known as STED, PALM, STORM, GSDIM, SSIM, RESOLFT, PAINT, SOFI, etc. as well as SNOM/NSOM and other emerging concepts.
