Course Instructor
SC1043: Shaping Light, with applications in Advanced Microscopy and Optical Trapping
Wavefront correction and generation are important topics in many areas. This introductory course will cover: the basic Gaussian beam, the need for other beams such as: Hermite-Gaussian and Laguerre-Gaussian laser modes, Bessel beams, Airy beams, and other notable beams and how they may be generated. In addition, we will cover some approaches used for adaptive optics / wavefront correction. We will consider uses of Deformable Mirror Arrays, Spatial Light Modulators, Acousto-Optic Deflectors, etc. Applications include sub-diffraction imaging / super-resolution microscopy, OCT, optical trapping, multi-photon microscopy at enhanced depth, and optimal excitation of plasmonic structures.
SC655: Introduction to Optical Tweezers and Optical Micromanipulation
This course is intended as an introduction to systems that use light for actuation and micromanipulation, including examples from the biological and colloid sciences. Throughout, the emphasis will upon basic principles and designs. You will learn of opportunities for enhanced degrees of control, resolution, and sensitivity - as well as many tradeoffs and limitations. The course will provide "hands-on" experience using a real optical tweezers system.
