Tissue Optics Quiz (2011-06-27)

Author(s): Martin J. Leahy

A short quiz completing the Tissue Optics Tutorial Series by Prof. Martin J. Leahy.

Access tutorial

Tissue Optics III - Advanced Tissue Optics for Physical Scientists (2011-06-27)

Author(s): Martin J.  Leahy

This course is the sequel to Tissue Optics II. Its objectives are to provide an understanding of the fundamentals of light propagation through turbid media (such as tissue) and to provide an understanding of basic tissue optical properties and how to measure them. Furthermore this tutorial gives an introduction to computer modelling of light propagation in tissues and provides forward reading on all of the above topics for further in-depth reading.

Tissue Optics I - Laser Safety (2011-06-27)

Author(s): Martin J.  Leahy

The course objectives are to introduce the concept of laser safety for tissue optics (and optics in general). As a prerequisite no knowledge of tissue optics, lasers, or biomedical imaging devices is assumed.

Access tutorial

Biophotonics in the era of molecular imaging (2011-05-06)

Author(s): Giannis  Zacharakis

This tutorial gives a broad overview over the different approaches of in vivo characterization and measurement of biologic processes at the cellular and molecular level including the basic principles of photonic and tomographic imaging as well as the influence of different probe media.

Access tutorial

Principles of laser-tissue interaction for laser surgery (2011-05-06)

Author(s): Roberto Pini

This tutorial covers various aspects of the interaction between bio tissues and laser light on three different scales, from MINI-mally invasive surgery over MICRO-surgery to NANO-surgery. It as well introduces the main surgical lasers used today and gives examples of minimally invasive laser surgeries and micro-and nanosurgery inlcuding the potentials of laser–activated nanoparticles.

Access tutorial

Optical Nano-Antennas (2010-09-01)

Author(s): Niek van Hulst

Nanoscale quantum emitters are key elements in quantum optics and constitute the ultimate limit in sensing. However, efficient optical excitation and detection of such emitters involves large solid angles because their interaction with freely-propagating light is omnidirectional. So far the control of directionality has mainly been pursued by photonic crystal structures and surface-plasmon-based devices.

Access tutorial

Raman Spectroscopy (2010-08-30)

Author(s): Volker Deckert

Raman based microspectroscopy has been recognized as a powerful tool to study biological samples like e.g. cells, tissues etc because the method provides molecular information without external markers such as stains or radioactive labels. Raman spectroscopy is a non destructive technique and does in general, require only minimal or no sample preparation.

Access tutorial

Visual Optics (2010-08-30)

Author(s): Henryk  Kasprzak

A tutorial about the importance of the tear film for human optics and the investigation of its stability on the cornea and the contactlens by use of shearing interferometr.

Access tutorial

Fluorescence LIDAR applications for the outdoor cultural heritage (2010-08-30)

Author(s): Valentina Raimondi

Fluorescence lidar is a non-invasive, remote sensing technique that makes it possible to extend the application of the laser-induced fluorescence technique to the outdoor environment, where uncontrolled external conditions must be met. Although initially developed for the investigation of marine environment and vegetation, in the past decade this technique has been successfully applied to the field of the cultural heritage.

Access tutorial

Round Robin Experiment

Raman spectroscopy has already proved its effectiveness in many cases for medical diagnostics such as for cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infections. However, there are no standards in the different working groups, e.g. for sample preparation, implementation of the Raman experiments, spectra pre-treatment, data evaluation, etc.In a round robin experiment, the required groundwork will take place in order to define standardised Raman measurement methods, which will be fundamental for establishing Raman spectroscopy for clinical diagnostic procedures.
