Scope
Biophotonics is the general term for the application of optical technologies to the fields of biological and medical sciences. In this vast field of research, the interactions of light with biological samples are used for diagnosis or treatment of diseases. Hereby, several different optical contrast mechanisms, such as scattering, absorption, fluorescence, interference or linear and non-linear polarization properties can be exploited. Conventional optical technologies that are based on fluorescence-labelled immunostaining have already become the gold standard in their respective fields. More advanced technologies however, enable imaging of structures below the classical resolution limit, omit the need for staining or tissue preparation or include automated diagnosis based on artificial intelligence.

Topics
Optics in Medicine, Optical Material Processing, Optical Metrology, and Computational Optics
