Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Series in optics and optoelectronics.Publisher: Boca Raton : CRC Press, c2014Description: xx, 681 p. : illustrations (some color) ; 27 cm.ISBN: 9781439895818 (hardback : acidfree paper).Subject(s): Imaging systems in medicine | Imaging systems in biology | Optical tomography | Photonics | TECHNOLOGY & ENGINEERING / Lasers & Photonics | TECHNOLOGY & ENGINEERING / BiomedicalDDC classification: 616.07545 Summary: "This reference provides an overview of optical imaging and manipulation technologies in biophotonics, covering both basic and advanced optical imaging techniques. It reviews the principles and fundamentals of bioimaging and molecular imaging/manipulation techniques. It also presents an overview of instrumentation, basic algorithms, and data processing methods. Accessible to students and researchers, the book discusses a range of application areas, including established and newer methodologies in biotechnology, biomedical engineering, biophysics, medicine, and pharmacology"--Summary: "Preface Photonics is the science and technology of generation, manipulation and detection of light. The field uses the quantum-like particles of light, i.e., the photons, instead of electrons to transmit, process, and store information. Biophotonics is recently emerged from the applications of photonics in the fields of biology and medicine. The invention of lasers in the 1960s revolutionized photonics, and made rapid technological advancements that produced useful tools, such as bar code scanners, CD players and laser pointers that are already playing an important part in our daily life. The fluorescence microscope is the first taste of the power of Biophotonics that brought us the important molecular information within cells in almost all biological laboratories. Today, biophotonics is widely regarded as the key science upon which the next generation of clinical tools and biomedical research instrumentation will be based. Although nature has used the principle of biophotonics to harness light for photosynthesis, it wasn't until about 10 years ago that a substantial translation of photonics technologies to biological applications began to transform medical and life sciences. The knowledge of biophotonics essentially includes the fundamentals of many interdisciplinary fields and how they are uniquely related to each other. Researchers and students who are interested in biophotonics should have a solid understanding of the physics of light, and the engineering of devices and instruments that are used to generate, modify, and manipulate light. On the other hand, they must also understand the fundamentals of biology and medicine, such as the molecular and cellular processes that occur in living systems to properly and meaningfully utilize the"--
