Quantum imaging emerged quite recently as a breakthrough technology of overcoming the diffraction limit in microscopy and enhancement of optical resolution without the necessity to use hard radiation or perform scanning in the near field  , . Both, the quantum imaging itself and the more 'classical' techniques inspired by it (for example, super-resolution optical fluctuations imaging - SOFI  ), rely on detection and analysis of photon (intensity) correlations. Typically, it is believed that the more correlated illuminating light is used and the higher order of the correlations is measured, the larger super-resolution can be achieved. That conclusion is based on efficient narrowing of the point-spread function, which, however, does not necessarily imply better resolution as the ability to reconstruct smaller features of the investigated object successfully.
