Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


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.
