Biophotonics

Light is at the center of all biophotonics research. Biophotonics is a relatively new but rapidly growing discipline which uses light to view and analyse living tissues and cells to detect, diagnose and treat dreaded diseases such as cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer’s. The interaction of light with matter results in absorption, fluorescence, reflection and scattering of the beam which can tell us information about the molecule or structure. Biophotonics has thus become an established general term for all techniques that deal with the interaction between biological items and photons. This denotes all the processes from emission, detection, absorption, reflection, modification, and conception of radiation from biomolecular, cells, tissues, organisms and biomaterials. Areas of application are life science, medicine, agriculture, and environmental science.

Biophotonics  is  the  understanding  of  the interplay of light with biological material, where “light” includes all forms of effulgent energy whose quantum unit is the photon. a more recent development of Photonics, much of biophotonics is glued on translating discoveries in the sciences around lasers, light and imaging into useful medical tools. A peculiarly important aspect of this field of tomography and sensing cells and tissue. This includes injecting fluorescent markers into a biological system to track cell dynamics and drug delivery. DOT, FRET, Bioluminescence, Biofluorescence, Biophoshphorescence, are the applications of Biophotonics.
