To obtain an overview of the field of Biophotonics and to help to overcome fragmentation PHOTONICS4LIFE prepared and set up a wiki. This database is unique in its aspect of inter-linking photonic and non-photonic technologies on one hand with biological processes and medical domains/diseases on the other hand, which is at the heart of what the P4L network wishes to achieve. It aims at encouraging scientist working in Biophotonics to identify ‘white spots’ in the field and to help bridging the communication gap between the different subdisciplines.
At the moment the Biophotonics wiki consists of more than 100 entries in five different domains:
The Wiki is open for everybody. Visitors who would like to add new database elements or update existing ones need to be logged in. Register here for a free account.
XXIV. International Conference on Raman Spectroscopy
Over the last years optical technologies have become a vital tool for innovating clinical diagnostics and are thus opening markets for photonics. Technologies like second harmonic generation or two-photon microscopy give new insights into abnormal changes in human morphology and can thereby often identify diseases better than techniques that don’t employ light.
