Abstract

Single-molecule localization (SML) is a powerful tool to overcome the diffraction limit in optical imaging, because the fluorescence emitted by single molecules can be observed with nanometer accuracy when the optical background and associated noise are made sufficiently small. Random adsorbed SML has been successfully demonstrated for superresolution imaging on metal surfaces. To optimize the random adsorbed SML, we developed a new illumination method based on surface plasmon resonance (SPR). The enhancement of the fluorescence signal and the reduction of background noise were achieved simultaneously. A high localization resolution of 15 nm was demonstrated with this new SPR illumination system.
