Comment/Description

The seminar "Modern Methods in Optical Microscopy" is part of "Advanced Metrology" and might be offered parallel with the seminar of "Applied Photonics I / Spectrophysics" (depending on the amount of participants). Examination: presentation in each part.
Further organisation via 5.04.6611 Seminar: Advanced Optical Spectroscopy. Please register there as well.

  • Demonstrate knowledge, fundamental understanding and critical awareness of current research fields in state-of-the-art optical microscopy.
  • Personal development through practice of communication, presentation, time management, teamwork, problem solving, project management, critical evaluation, numeracy, and IT skills.
  • Students are able to prepare a written scientific report on their own and present their results in an appropriate way to the group; in particular to understand, analyze, classify and work on an advanced microscopy topic, thoroughly study the recommended (and further) literature; find and critically check relevant literature make and incorporate their own thoughts, write down and present their results in a mathematically correct and comprehensible way, finish in time.

Topics to be covered will include: microscopy, wave optics, optical imaging, spatial/temporal coherence, light generation/detection, e.g.:
  • Confocal microscopy
  • Superresolution microscopy
  • Single Molecule Imaging
  • Imaging of living tissue
  • Raman microscopy
  • Stochastic microscopy
