Nonlinear wave mixing facilitates subwavelength imaging

2

A team of researchers recently developed an alternative way to break the Abbe diffraction limit and realize subwavelength imaging in an all-optical manner. They propose localized evanescent-wave illuminations, which are excited at the silicon surface by four-wave mixing, a third-order nonlinear optical process.
