BIOPHOTONICS consists on the use of optical and laser technologies for biomedical studies and applications. This group was created in 2005 and has over the years included several postgraduate and undergraduate students working on our different projects as well as outreach programmes.
The research projects focus on different imaging modalities such as fluorescence quantification using the optrode, an all-fibre real time spectroscopic optical probe, optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging and nonlinear microscopy.
The Biophotonics Group is part of the Dodd-Walls CoRE for photonic and quantum technologies.
Dr Frederique Vanholsbeeck is the theme leader for the sensing and imaging theme.
This theme has four projects:
1. Understanding the basis on sensing and investigating the boundaries of optical and acoustics imaging and sensing using, amongst other tools, mathematical modelling,
2. Using that knowledge to develop and apply new techniques to biomedical imaging,
3. Geophysical sensing, and
4. Sensing for the primary industries.
