Nonlinear extensions of Abbe theory

Christopher Barsi, Jason W. Fleischer

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


Abbe theory describes imaging in terms of captured diffracted orders, with higher orders providing better resolution. We show, experimentally and numerically, that nonlinearity breaks down linear limits, as high-frequency spatial modes mix with low-frequency ones.
