ENGN 1930B - Photonics and Biophotonics
Biomedical optics is a rapidly growing field with applications in medicine, biology, neuroscience, genetics, and environmental science. The course covers both theoretical background and technical approaches underlying biomedical imaging technologies. The theoretical background focuses on how photons transport in biological tissues, including the radiative transport equation and photon diffusion theory. The course offers not only mathematical fundamentals of the theories but also opportunities of learning the theories through numerical simulations on MATLAB. The technical approaches include those for various imaging technologies ranging from conventional microscopy to optical coherence tomography.
