Superoscillations: imaging beyond the limits of diffraction

This past week I gave a virtual talk to the Charlotte Amateur Astronomy Club about a fascinating development in wave physics and imaging called “superoscillations,” and I thought I would record a version that I could share here!

Hopefully the video makes sense — I throw in a little history about the wave theory of light in addition to the discussion of modern developments.
