Abstract

This feature issue comprises a collection of papers from groups in the forefront of the research of high-numerical-aperture optical systems and their applications. We have assembled 13 papers from a wide subject area within optical microscopy. Contributions include surface-plasmon microscopy, interference microscopy, optical coherence tomography, polarized-light microscopy, and the optical theories of these techniques.
