In this research a relation between the accuracy of restoration of the single quantum dots (QD) CdSe/CdS/ZnS cross-cut coordinates and luminescence intensity was investigated. It was shown that the limit of the accuracy of determining the coordinates of a single QD for a considerable total amount of registered photons approaches its limiting value that is comparable to the size of the QD. It also means that the installation used in the research is mechanically stable enough to reach the limiting values of determination accuracy of point emitters coordinates.
Key words: quantum dots / single photon sources / super-resolution fluorescence microscopy
