Together with Kai Wicker from the Carl Zeiss AG, ACP principal scientist Heintzmann has just published a commentary article on "Resolving a misconception about structured illumination" (Nature Photon. 8, 342, 2014).
Abstract: Applying structured illumination microscopy to coherent imaging modalities such as scattering does not yield any additional information beyond that provided by oblique illumination. It thus yields no resolution enhancement over the Abbe diffraction limit, which was derived precisely for that case.
