Spotlight summary: The resolution of conventional microscopy is limited by diffraction. In recent years a number of techniques involving both nonlinear microscopy and near-field microscopy have provided resolution beyond the far-field diffraction limit. This paper develops an approach to further improve the resolution of evanescent field microscopy using optimized nanostructured substrates.
