ECE 405 - Biophysical Measurement and Instrumentation

★ 3 (fi 8)(FIRST, 3-0-0)

Introduction to the principles of biophysical instrumentation. Various sensors are examined including strain gauges, inductive, capacitive, thermal, and piezoelectric sensors. Methods of measuring blood pressure are discussed. Origin of biopotentials; membrane and action potentials. Measurement of bioelectrical signals such as the ECG and EMG. Electrical safety, noise, impedance matching, and analog-to-digital conversion. Applications of electrodes, biochemical sensors, and lasers. Prerequisite: ECE 203 or E E 250 or consent of the Instructor. Credit may be obtained in only one of ECE 405 or EE BE 512.

ECE 691 - Biomedical Optics

★ 3 (fi 6)(EITHER, 3-0-0)

This course is intended to provide a firm understanding of the physical and theoretical basis of biomedical optics. Both theoretic aspects of light propagation in tissue as well as practical imaging and sensing systems will be discussed. Single and multiple scattering of light is modeled, and light-transport and diffusion equations are developed. Imaging and sensing platforms including various microscopy technologies, optical-coherence tomography systems, and diffuse-imaging methods are analyzed in detail. Selected topics may include photoacoustic imaging, optical dyes and nanoparticle agents, novel emerging microscopy and deep-tissue imaging technologies, and applications to biological and clinical problems. Prerequisite: consent of Instructor.
