2.715 Optical Microscopy and Spectroscopy for Biology and Medicine


Class Info

Introduces the theory and the design of optical microscopy and its applications in biology and medicine. The course starts from an overview of basic optical principles allowing an understanding of microscopic image formation and common contrast modalities such as dark field, phase, and DIC. Advanced microscopy imaging techniques such as total internal reflection, confocal, and multiphoton will also be discussed. Quantitative analysis of biochemical microenvironment using spectroscopic techniques based on fluorescence, second harmonic, Raman signals will be covered. We will also provide an overview of key image processing techniques for microscopic data.

This class has no prerequisites.

2.715 will be offered this semester (Spring 2017). It is instructed by P. T. So and V. Viasnoff.

Lecture occurs 7:30 PM to 9:00 AM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 1-390.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

In the Spring 2014 Subject Evaluations, 2.715 was rated 6.0 out of 7.0. You can find more information at the MIT + 2.715 - Google Search site or on the 2.715 Stellar site.
