Biophotonics (12h)

Detailed program  


The goal of this course is to provide an introduction to the principles of optics and lasers, the basics of biology, the interaction of light with cells and tissues, and the applications of optical imaging and sensing techniques in biomedicine. This course is highly interdisciplinary and is suitable for graduate students with various engineering or biomedical backgrounds.
