ABBE LIMIT

Ernst Abbe's specification for the limit of resolution of a diffraction-limited micro-scope. According to Abbe, a detail with a special spacing in the specimen is resolved when the numerical aperture of the objective lens is big satis to capture the first-order diffraction pattern produced by the detail at the wavelength employed. See: Rayleigh criterion, Sparrow limit.
