Research Goals

  • The overall goal of QSTORM-AO is to develop a wavefront-shaping, light-sheet microscope, using photoswitchable quantum dot fluorophores, that will enable 3D single-molecule localization 100um below the surface of a whole organism.
  • The Communications Team is coordinating team meetings and group reporting, developing this public record of QSTORM-AO research, and delivering museum presentations with animations and hands-on demos about the QSTORM quest and its progress.
