Abstract

In the article "Light microscopes get a sharper look" by Karen Fox (Research News, 3 Sept., p. 1275), the laser feedback microscope (LFM) was incorrectly described as having a horizontal resolution that was only slightly larger than the resolution of a scanning electron microscope (SEM). The LFM's horizontal resolution ranges from 100 to 200 nanometers, which is similar to the range of an inexpensive SEM, but substantially larger than the 0.5- to l-nanometer range of an expensive, high-quality SEM.
