Wide-field microscope imaging with large FOV and high resolution is achieved via ultracompact metalens array — ScienceDaily

The pursuit of ever-higher imaging resolution in microscopy is coupled with growing demands for compact portability and high throughput. While imaging performance has improved, conventional microscopes still suffer from the bulky, heavy elements and architectures associated with refractive optics. Metalenses offer a solution: they’re ultrathin, ultralight, and flat, and benefit from lots of recent research […]
