Ultrathin sheets of light are harnessed by a microscope designed by this year's Nobel Prize winner in such a way that they peer into living cells. As a result, researchers can track everything from a single protein's moves to embryo formation.

The ability of the microscope is beyond the super resolution tools, which is why it earned Eric Betzig the 2014 Nobel Prize in chemistry along with other two scientists. The light microscope platform developed by Betzig and colleagues at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Janelia Research Campus ...
