Credit Hours: 3
Restrictions:
Must be enrolled in one of the following Level(s):
Graduate
Description: This course is an introduction to the fundamentals of Biophotonics instrumentation related to coherent light generation, transmission by optical components such as lenses and fibers, and modulation and detection. Interference and polarization concepts and light theories including ray and wave optics will be covered. A broad variety of optical imaging and detection techniques including numerous microscopy techniques, spectral imaging, polarimetry, OCT and others will be covered. The course will guide through the principles and concepts used in a variety of optical instruments and point to special requirements for Biomedical applications with emphasis on principles and concepts used in a variety of optical instruments and point to special requirements for Biomedical applications with emphasis on principles and concepts used in a variety of optical instruments and point out special requirements for bio-medical applications in optical sensing, diagnosis, and biomedical applications. In addition to the undergraduate requirements in BIOE 484, graduate students will be required to complete more complex problems on both homework and tests. Graduate students will also be required to submit a research paper with oral presentations. Graduate/Undergraduate Equivalency: BIOE 484. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for BIOE 512 if student has credit for BIOE 484.
