ILA Course - I 


It will be an interdisciplinary course dealing with applications of photonics to biology and medicine. The aim of the course is to introduce students to the exciting field of biophotonics and provide some basic understanding of its underlying science. In addition, the students will get an overview of the different related research activities being carried out in this broad area of research and also come to know the various opportunities for pursuing active research in the field.

The course will cover the following main topics:

  • Tissue Optics and fundamentals of light-tissue interaction
  • Optical Spectroscopy and Imaging for biomedical diagnosis:
  • Principles, techniques and applications
  • Nano-Biophotonics and optical biosensors
  • Optical tweezers and their applications in biophotonics
  • Photobiomodulation

Each topic will be explained conceptually and recent applications will be reviewed. Efforts will be made to introduce the significant biological principles involved and the range of optical methods that can be employed to produce new knowledge about the topics at a fundamental level. Students should be able to learn basic scientific and engineering principles that are necessary for developing techniques and devices that use light to improve human health.
