Eric Betzig shared the 2014 Chemistry Nobel prize with fellow American William E. Moerner and Romanian-German Stefan W. Hell for revolutionising science through the development of super-resolved fluorescence to exceed the accepted limits of traditional optical microscopy, set down in 1873 by Ernst Abbe who stipulated the maximum resolution could never be better than 0.2 micrometres. By using new techniques to break that barrier, the three Laureates created nanoscopy – allowing molecules to be examined inside living cells.
