Microscopic and Low-Coherence Methods in Biomedical and NonBiomedical Applications V

Preliminary program

Development of non- or minimally- invasive methods for imaging, monitoring, and quantification of different materials and processes are extremely important for many biomedical (including therapy, diagnostics, management, and advanced imaging of various devastating diseases) and non- biomedical applications (dimensional metrology, material research and non- destructive testing, art diagnostics, botany, microfluidics, data storage, and security applications). This workshop will put emphasis on two aspects of optical imaging: microscopy and low coherence interferometry.


The education and scientific program will include but is not restricted to the following topic areas:
