Life sciences or Biophotonics application aim at studying organisms and their place in the ecosystem. The understanding of cellular and molecular processes provides doctors and medical engineers with valuable insights for the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures – many of them using the advantages of laser technology.
A considerable amount of knowledge about the functions of cells has been gained with optical techniques. Light enters a cell, probes it and provides valuable information. Amongst others, modern optical techniques unite high spatial resolution, non-destructive sampling, deep penetration and even three-dimensional imaging. They can provide in-situ or in-vivo examinations and allow for real-time observation.
All over the world, scientists use high-power lasers that release incredibly high amounts of energy in extremely short pulses. The steadily growing number of optical technologies in Life Science and Medical applications goes hand in hand with the increasing demand for modern photonic sources. – each one optimized to perfectly serve its specific task.
Fluorescence microscopy is most widely used to make selected cell parts visible, ensuring a high contrast. The samples are usually stained with fluorescence markers. In the life sciences and medicine, interferometers are used for the high-resolution examination of tissue structures.
