The course aims to introduce the basic concepts of polarization optics and optical polarimetry and its applications in biophotonics and plasmonics research. Specifically, the course will cover polarized light basics (Jones, Stokes-Muller formalism), experimental techniques of polarization measurements, modeling of polarized light scattering in turbid medium such as biological tissues and applications of quantitative polarimetry in biomedical diagnosis / imaging and in the emerging field of nanoplasmonics. In this regard, the basic physics and the theory of localized plasmon resonance in metal nanoparticles will also be briefly covered.
- Understand the basics of polarized light – EM theory description of polarized light and its interaction with medium (Jones, Stokes-Mueller formalisms).
- Understand and learn various experimental strategies for polarized light measurements – Stokes polarimeter, Mueller matrix polarimeter etc.
- Forward modeling of polarized light interaction with scattering medium such as biological tissues and other complex scattering media. Inverse analysis on experimental polarimetry signal for extraction of useful medium polarimetry characteristics.
- Representative applications of quantitative polarimetry in biomedical imaging and diagnosis.
- Basic concepts on localized plasmon resonance in metal nanoparticles / nanostructures.
- Polarimetry in nanoplasmonics – prospects, challenges, applications and outlook.
