'Crazy idea' fetches Stefan Hell the Nobel Prize

What German scientist Stefan Hell initially thought was a crazy idea later fetched him the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2014. His work on breaking the diffraction barrier in microscopy could prove significant in finding remedies to incurable diseases like cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. At the 107th Indian Science Congress in Bengaluru on Friday, the Nobel laureate shared his experience. "Throughout the 20th century, scientists believed there is no way to get the highest spatial resolution that only was released," Hell told the audience. "But now, the development of this microscope, which I'm responsible for, showed that this is not true. You can go beyond that. You can have a higher spatial resolution, you can clearly see that here there are filaments of resolve that are not resolved in a normal mode."
