Nanophotonics for undergraduates at Macquarie

Prof Ewa Goldys29 July 2014: Formal lectures in  nanobiophotonics  will commence this coming Monday at Macquarie University.

This formal unit of study (PHYS 704) covers current research directions at the interface of nanotechnology and biophotonics, addressing a common gap in the physics/engineering undergraduate curriculum. Students will learn about the principal types of nanomaterials and nanostructures with the underpinning physics and chemistry.  They will gain familiarity with photonics techniques that relate to biological applications such as advanced microscopy and image analysis. There is emphasis on applications and significance of nanomaterials in the life sciences. The lectures will  cover various Nanosafety, instrumentation and core measurement techniques which are applicable in nanotechnology and biophotonics will also be discussed.

The unit forms part of Macquarie Masters of Research degree program. It is taught by Professor Ewa Goldys (CNBP CI) and A/Prof Andrei Zvyagin (CNBP AI)  from Macquarie. The unit has been offered in 2013 and it received enthusiastic exit reports from its graduates.
