    Course Description

    This course is an introduction to the physics and engineering of optical technologies and their applications in medicine and biology. It studies the propagation of light in tissue, bright field, dark field, phase contrast, DIC, fluorescence, Raman, confocal, two-photon, low-coherence, spectral microscopy, and speckle. The course also covers current trends in microscopy and optical imaging. This subject is appropriate for upper level undergraduates and graduate students in life sciences as well as engineering, and consists of lectures, seminars and occasional guest lectures. Grading is based on a mid-term and final report. The opportunity to pursue the implementation of the solution as a project in the following term is available.
