"Waveguide-based super-resolution at cryogenic temperatures":

With this experimental project we aim to combine an optical waveguide with super-resolution imaging of single emitters at cryogenic temperatures. Light from the waveguide is coupled out via the evanescent field into a very shallow layer of the sample of about 200 nm, allowing seeing only the surface of the sample with high contrast. The cryogenic temperature allows to collect 100x more photons from single molecules than at room temperature. The project comprises of the design and implementation of the setup, as well as the measurements.
