Please subscribe as well in 5.04.6611 Advanced Optical Spectroscopy in order to get all necessary information. Both seminar are usually offered parallel.
- 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
Notes for the module
Basics in optics and laser physics, in particular, fundamentals of optics and photonics; atomic and molecular physics; spectrophysics
Skills to be acquired in this module
The students thoroughly deepen their knowledge on concepts of spectroscopy as well as on biophotonics, This module provides the theoretical background for analytical applications involving UV-Visible spectroscopy, atomic absorption, emission and laser based spectroscopies. The students develop a sound understanding of the principles and instrumentation of atomic and molecular spectroscopy with in depth applications to a wide range of environments e.g. analytical, biological, industrial, pharmaceutical, environmental. The students develop problem solving skills with reasoning based on theory underlying spectroscopy and photonics in biosciences and medicine thus providing a background to practical laboratory training.
