One optical device that has the capability to resolve better than dAbbe is the confocal microscope. In most cases, the confocal microscope is regarded as the gold standard for performing optical sectioning.
This is correct, and seems to have a continuing role as the indispensable workhorse for fluorescence imaging in modern biological and medical research. In addition, it offers a series of applications for material science, semiconductor research, quality management and other fields.
