More than 50 authors have contributed to this e-book of 17 chapters that offers an overview of the multifaceted subject of label-free microscopy (LFM) in advanced super-resolution techniques. The first five chapters discuss the modern interference-detection techniques in microscopy (known as QPI, iSCAT, COBRI and TMD). The next six chapters account for a number of approaches to nonlinear LFM super-resolution microscopy, and are followed by two chapters on plasmonic and metamaterials superlens microscopy. The last three chapters deal with nanoscale imaging through contact dielectric microspheres.

A thorough and cutting-edge reference of the modern advances in microscopy, the book is valuable reading for researchers and physicists.
