Perfect focus through thick layers may bring better vision to medicine

In a first-of-its-kind demonstration, a team of researchers has developed a powerful technique to focus laser light through even the murkiest of surroundings without the need for a guide star. This innovation, a specialized version of an adaptive optics microscope, can resolve a point less than one thousandth of a millimeter across.
