Collected for each emitter (N) is sufficient, the fluorophore position is determined with precision higher than the diffraction limit (as schematically shown in Fig. 1a): s0 r $ pffiffiffiffi N where r is the localization precision, s0 is the size of the PSF, and N is the number of photons/molecule. Localization-based techniques allow imaging of sub-cellular structures with nanometer resolution and provide information at the molecular scale. Singlemolecule imaging can be achieved exploiting the spectral properties of photoactivatable and photoswitchable proteins [56] or the transition to metastable dark states of conventional dyes [29, 33, 40].

Nevertheless, the spatial resolution of a STED system is theoretically ‘‘infinite’’; many practical issues limit the ultimate value achievable. First, potential phototoxicity as well as photodamage effects on the sample limits the amount of STED light that is possible to imping. Second, many experimental imperfections in the focal intensity distributions of both STED and excitation beams, such as astigmatism, lateral misalignments, and zero-intensity point defects, reduce the contrast of the inhibition process, that is, so crucial obtaining substantial resolution improvement.

Super-resolution is achieved by precluding simultaneous emission of spectrally identical emission of adjacent (\diffraction limit distance) molecules. Also, the evolution of such techniques toward applications on thick ([50 micron thickness) samples is discussed along with correlative microscopy approaches involving scanning probe methods. Examples are given within the neuroscience framework. , far-field fluorescence optical microscopy, in the last 30 years benefited of a series of key advances from confocal to multiphoton microscopy [22], from singlemolecule detection methods to super-resolution microscopy and optical nanoscopy [23, 24, 41].
