Biophotonics and Microscopy Techniques ENSC 476 (4)
Basic physics and applications of light-biomatter interactions, tissue optics and microscopy instrumentation. With this background students will embark on practical issues such as light-induced effects in bio-systems, microscopy diagnostic techniques, therapeutic instrumentation and applications, optical tomography and recent developments in optical sensors. Lectures are accompanied by laboratory evaluation projects plus a final design and fabrication project. Prerequisite: Completion of 80 units including PHYS 121 or 102 or 141. Recommended: ENSC 376 or 470.
