Face to Face

This course introduces the fundamental principles of biophotonics and their applications to real-world devices. In a combination of laboratory and classroom exercises, students will design optical systems for evaluation of optical properties of biological media and learn computational methods to simulate light transport in such media. Modern optical measurement techniques including fluorescence spectroscopy, optical coherence tomography, and confocal microscopy will be covered in detail.
