Remarque

(pas donné en 2016-17)

Summary

Introduction to the different contrast methods in optical microscopy. Basic hands-on experience with optical microscopes. How to investigate biological samples? How to obtain high quality images?

Content

Dark field and phase contrast microscopy, molecular spectroscopy, optical coherence tomography, aberrations and image quality, deconvolution, advanced microscopy (multiphoton, super-resolution). Hands-on experience with wide field and confocal microscopes.

Keywords

Optical microscopy and tomography, fluorescence spectroscopy, aberrations.

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

Advanced optics (MT) or Biomicroscopy I (SV).

Recommended courses

Analysis IV, Linear algebra, General physics III/IV.

Important concepts to start the course

Basic matrix calculations, Fourier transformation, electromagnetic waves, wide field and confocal microscopy.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

Transversal skills

Teaching methods

Lecturing with exercises (50%) and practice in the microscopy facility (50%).

Expected student activities

Following the lecturing and solving the exercises regularly is necessary for mastering the course contents. The solutions of the exercises are distributed at the next lecture. The student is invited to find his/her own solutions and to discuss them with the assistants. An active participation in the laboratory leads to the mastering of different microscopes.
