Metal organic framework superlenses

Author affiliations


The present work indicated that ligand-exchanged metal–organic frameworks could behave as superlenses in air to resolve 100 nm under a conventional white-light microscope, obtaining a super-resolution of λ/6. This discovery greatly expands the types of materials for preparing superlens used for the observation of biological samples and fabrication of new superlenses.
