Abstract

The development of a biomedical optics and laser curriculum at the University of Miami Department of Biomedical Engineering is presented. The objective of this curriculum is to provide students with a general knowledge of the principles of geometrical and physical optics, optical instrumentation, optical fibers and lasers, as well as a hands-on practical experience through laboratory sessions and individual projects. The ultimate goal is to give biomedical engineering students the ability to understand the principles of medical optical instruments and laser systems, and sufficient knowledge and practical experience to be able to design and operate basic optical and laser systems for biomedical applications.
