Replacing Cremer-isms on the page[edit]

This page contains an unusual number of Cremer-isms, that is, words and phrases used by C. Cremer et al, but nobody else in the community. For example, SPDM is an extremely unusual term, SMLM being much more common. Additionally, SPDMphymod is not significantly differing from PALM, STORM and consorts, so I would suggest to reorganize the LM section with a common introduction and specific sections for each method. Objections, anyone?

Removing common parts from the STORM subsection and mentioning the dSTORM/STORM naming conflict[edit]

While liking it overall, I see two problems that should be remedied in the recent addition of the STORM subsection:

  • There is no need for the first few sentences, which equally refer to all localization microscopy techniques, to be repeated, they are already sufficiently mentioned in the introduction to localization microscopy. I'd like to delete them for the sake of clarity. Objections, anyone?
  • It is very confusing for new people when mentioning STORM with single molecules first and unconditionally naming both dye pairs and single dyes as "STORM" and then declaring single dyes as "dSTORM". I'd like to either go the grand unified way here and merge the dSTORM and STORM section (since, frankly, this is the same technique and the naming just politics) or at least place a hint towards the temporal development, i.e. put dyes first and then single fluorophores, and a hint towards the fact that some people call single, organic fluorophore localization microscopy "STORM" and some call it "dSTORM".

@Zhuanglab, could you please give your opinion about that? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.193.177.220 (talk) 08:35, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

Simplification[edit]

Opinion: This article needs to be simplified and/or divided into sub-articles. It needs to be slightly "laymanized".

Opinion: This is a mess. The heading "true super-resolution techniques" makes it sound like the other methods are "untrue." That is nonsense. Also a name like "deterministic functional" is meaningless. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.198.180.64 (talk) 22:34, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
