BMEn 3215 Bioelectricity and Bioinstrumentation Lab, 1 credit (Fall)
Description: The objective is to learn and apply the principles of electrical phenomena and instrumentation relevant to biomedical engineering.
BMEn 5421 Introduction to Biomedical Optics, 3 credits, (Spring)
Description: The objective is to develop knowledge in the area of biomedical optical imaging and sensing. Topics include basic optical principles, laser-tissue interaction, detector design and noise analysis, interferometry, and spectroscopy. Methods will range from the simple Beer’s Law to the Monte Carlo modeling of light transport in scattering tissue, and from the basic Michelson interferometer to the state-of the art noninvasive optical coherence tomography of tissue. Polarization, birefringence, flow measurement, fluorescence and nonlinear microscopy will be introduced. Students will get opportunities to visit various laboratories on campus to see optical instruments being developed for biomedical imaging and sensing applications.
