EEL 6935 / EEL 4935 / BME 6931: Biomedical Optical Imaging and Spectroscopy

This course will provide an introduction to biomedical optical spectroscopy and imaging, including principles of light-tissue interaction, theoretical & computational modeling of photon diffusion, optical medical device instrumentation, and clinical applications.

The objective of this course is to provide students with a fundamental understanding of optical spectroscopy and imaging of biological tissue. The course will start with basic concepts of tissue absorption, scattering and fluorescence, and build on these principles to rigorous analytical and computational models of light diffusion. Finally, the course will provide an introduction to imaging and microscopy with light. (Course Flyer )
