NanoBioPhotonics NBIPMOD27

Course overview: This course will provide an introduction to the principles and applications of photonics in biology, with a special emphasis on the expanding usage of nano-structures in this area. Basic principles of biophotonics and nanotechnology will be introduced and developed towards the use of nano-particles, quantum dots and microarrays for bio-imaging, optical biosensing and micro-patterning of biological material.

Level: 1 ECTS: 5

Learning outcomes: On completion of the course student should

  • Understand the basic concepts of optical interaction with biological materials
  • Understand the coupling of select nanotechnologies with biophotonics to advance knowledge in biology, biotechnology and biomedical science.
  • Have an introduction to plasmonics and optically driven nanotechnologies such as quantum dots and microarrays.
