Courses

    • BME 311: Fundamentals of Macro to Molecular Bio-imaging        Spring 2017 This course will cover the fundamentals of modern imaging technologies, including techniques and applications within medicine and biomedical research. The course will also introduce concepts in molecular imaging with the emphasis on the relations between imaging technologies and the design of target specific probes as well as unique challenges in the design of probes of each modality: specificity, delivery, and amplification strategies. The course includes visits to clinical sites.

    • BME 271 Introduction to Electric Circuits and Bioelectricity – Fall semester  An introductory course to two key areas of the modern biomedical engineering discipline: bioelectricity and bio-photonics. The first part of the class begins with fundamental theory of circuit analysis, including lumped time-invariant models of resistors, capacitors, inductors, Ohm’s Law, Kirchoff’s Laws, nodal and mesh analysis for electric circuits, two-port equivalent circuits, steady-state AC circuits, phasor and transient analysis using Laplace Transform. The applications of basic circuit analysis techniques in biological circuitry will be discussed throughout the first part of the class. In the second part of the course, the principles of cell electrophysiology, bio-potentials and electrical interactions with tissue will be studied. Finally, the third part of the course will cover ray optics, including reflection, refraction, lenses and image formation, and wave optics, as an introduction to bio-photonics (BME 301).

    • BME 513 Introduction to Optical and Terahertz Imaging – Spring semester  This course provides the theoretical foundations for advanced topics in modern optical imaging techniques, including nonlinear optics, Fourier optics, ultrafast time-domain studies and terahertz spectroscopy and imaging. The emphasis will be on connecting Optics theory to modern technological
      advancements and their biomedical or industrial applications. The course
      will review of the fundamental optics topics including, polarization, Fresnel equations, diffraction, dispersion, and introduction to ultrafast lasers, followed by an introduction to  nonlinear optics and Fourier optics, and finally a survey of recent topics in Terahertz science and technology.
