Research group information
Research group description
Biophotonics research in OPEM Unit has a 20-year-long history. We develop and employ innovative photonic tools and techniques for noninvasive functional imaging of biotissues, for manipulating microparticles and red blood cells to study interaction forces between them, for visualizing tissue perfusion and characterization of blood flow in particular to monitor brain activity. We fabricate advanced realistic optomechanical phantoms of tissues and organs of humans and small animals. The experimental investigations are regularly supported by the comprehensive theoretical and numerical modeling of light-tissue interaction. The Biophotonics group is a member of Oulu BioImaging consortium, which is an associated partner of Euro-Bioimaging infrastructure network.
