Lightning for the Leica SP8

The confocal laser scanning microscope Leica Inverted-3 has received a major upgrade for moderate super-resolution, called "Lightning".

This is a software based solution including deconvolution and noise reduction which should extend the resolution of the microscope into super-resolution territory. According to the manufacturer structures as small as 120 nm can be resolved.
