Optical resolution is limited by diffraction. However, in near-field microscopes sample illumination is provided through a subwavelength aperture to increase optical resolution. In this study we have evaluated the usefulness of this technique for living biological systems and report two significant improvements in this form of microscopy to enhance optical(More)
Methylmercury is a toxic form of mercury which persists in food webs for long periods of time and biomagnifies up successive trophic levels. Shorebirds breeding in the Arctic are exposed to methylmercury, derived from both natural and anthropogenic sources, when they ingest their invertebrate prey.
