Biophotonics research in Optoelectronics and Measurements Techniques unit has almost 20-year-long history. The Biophotonics group is a member of Oulu BioImaging consortium, which, in turn, is an associated partner of Euro-Bioimaging infrastructure network.
We employ different optical experimental techniques to image surface and internal skin and bone structure; to sense glucose in blood, skin and tissue-mimicking phantoms; to manipulate microparticles and red blood cells and to study interaction forces between them; to visualize flow velocity profiles of biological liquid (blood, protoplasm); to monitor brain activity. Additionally, we fabricate tissue-mimicking phantoms with capillary structures, perform Monte Carlo simulations of light migration in tissue to support experimental research and estimate alteration of skin properties by administration of nanoparticles.
