Photonics plays an important role in many biomedical applications, from diagnosis and sensing of disease and infection to minimally invasive imaging of tissue during clinical procedures.
This one-day hands-on training course provides industry, especially those developing new products or addressing an application need, with a detailed overview of important photonic-based biomedical devices and how they are applied in clinical environments.
The course will focus on three technology demonstrators; 1) Optical fiber-based catheter sensor for blood flow monitoring; 2) Integrated photonic biosensor for rapid disease detection; 3) Miniaturised imaging device for minimally invasive surgical procedures. Course attendees will learn how these biomedical devices are designed, fabricated and tested. They will also learn how early-stage prototypes can be scaled to volume manufacturing.
