054345 - BIOPHOTONICS (C.I.)
054849 - DIFFUSE OPTICAL TOMOGRAPHY
Introduce the student to the fundamentals of optical tomography in diffusive media (e.g. biological tissues), presenting the physical basis, introducing the mathematical tools, discussing instrumental implementations and photonics advancements, and describing examples of applications, with particular emphasis on biomedical topics. A project session will improve the experimental modelling and team working capabilities.
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
- Knowledge and understanding
The students will improve knowledge and understanding on wave physics, single-photon photonics detection, physics of photon propagation in diffusive media, light-matter interaction, linear algebra and inverse problems, with specific application to the problem of 3D tomography in diffusive media for clinical diagnostics.
- Apply knowledge and understanding
The students will be challenged to solve – in the project activity – a problem of tomographic reconstruction implying the application of knowledge on the physics of diffuse optics, modelling of real photonics systems and methods for solving inverse problems.
- Making Judgements
The students will be required to judge the plausibility of their own project results as well as, in common discussions, of the outcomes of other teams.
- Lifelong learning skills
Students will be faced with the key difference between theoretical models and practical implementation, as well as the ability of problem solving, team-working and workflow organization.
