Diffraction-unlimited fluorescence imaging allows the visualization of intact, strongly heterogeneous systems at unprecedented levels of detail. Beyond the acquisition of detailed pictures, increasing efforts are now being focused on deriving quantitative insights from these techniques. In this work, we review the recent developments on sub-diffraction(More)
In this paper we discuss the impact of proactive routing in comparison with a reactive routing approach in an environment where multiple communication technologies are used simultaneously. Therefore the Virtual Private Ad Hoc Networking platform will be introduced and used. A simulation environment is created and used to illustrate the outcomes with a(More)
Fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) is a major process in oil refineries to produce gasoline and base chemicals from crude oil fractions. The spatial distribution and acidity of zeolite aggregates embedded within the 50-150 μm-sized FCC spheres heavily influence their catalytic performance. Single-molecule fluorescence-based imaging methods, namely nanometer(More)
Employing viruses as nanoscopic lipid-enveloped test tubes allows the miniaturization of protein-protein interaction (PPI) assays while preserving the physiological environment necessary for particular biological processes. Applied to the study of the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1), viral biology and pathology can also be investigated in novel(More)
Sub-diffraction imaging of plasma membrane localized proteins, such as the SNARE (Soluble NSF Attachment Protein Receptor) proteins involved in exocytosis, in fixed cells have resulted in images with high spatial resolution, at the expense of dynamical information. Here, we have imaged localized fluorescence bursts of DRONPA-fused SNAP-25 molecules in live(More)
Super-resolution optical fluctuation imaging (SOFI) allows one to perform sub-diffraction fluorescence microscopy of living cells. By analyzing the acquired image sequence with an advanced correlation method, i.e. a high-order cross-cumulant analysis, super-resolution in all three spatial dimensions can be achieved. Here we introduce a software tool for a(More)
Live-cell imaging of focal adhesions requires a sufficiently high temporal resolution, which remains a challenge for super-resolution microscopy. Here we address this important issue by combining photoactivated localization microscopy (PALM) with super-resolution optical fluctuation imaging (SOFI). Using simulations and fixed-cell focal adhesion images, we(More)
In this paper we introduce the Virtual Private Ad Hoc Networking platform as an integrated solution for emergency communication and applications. This platform creates a virtual logical self-organizing network on top of existing network technologies reducing complexity and facilitating immediate availability. The architecture and its features will be(More)
Live-cell super-resolution fluorescence imaging is becoming commonplace for exploring biological systems, though sample dynamics can affect the imaging quality. In this work we evaluate the effect of probe diffusion on super-resolution optical fluctuation imaging (SOFI), using a theoretical model and numerical simulations based on the imaging of live cells(More)
