A new method of fluorescence imaging which yielded an unprecedented vertical resolution was presented. Unique spectral signature of the fluorescent emission intensity above a reflecting surface was used instead of spatial variation method. Clear distinction was made between markers bound directly to the substrate from those bound on top of a single layer of streptavidin using better than 5-nm vertical resolution.
