Biophotonics as a research area provides and employs novel photonic technologies and tools for medical research, diagnosis and therapy. Biophotonics research aims for a deeper understanding of the processes within living cells, which is, on the other hand, a prerequisite for the improvement of early recognition and targeted treatment of diseases. The corresponding technological solutions and methods for diagnosis and therapy will be employed for an efficient and affordable health care which will help to deal with the challenges of aging societies and exploding health care costs. Resultant Biophotonics systems will support not only the preservation, but even the increase of the impressive double-digit annual growth rates of the related industries. The development of such systems will require highly interdisciplinary collaboration based on an intensive dialogue between scientists from the various disciplines in order to streamline common efforts. An important part of Biophotonic systems is based on spectroscopic, microscopic and imaging methods, not only for diagnostic purposes but also for surgical instruments, pathology applications and therapy control. Multimodal systems, based on combinations of different, not necessarily only photonic techniques will help to overcome the limits of the individual methods in combination with powerful deep learning and artificial intelligence based image analysis and chemometric methods.

Contributed papers are solicited concerning, but not limited to, the following areas:

  • OCT, Raman- and IR-based methods, optoacoustics
  • multiphoton methods (SHG, CARS, FlIM, FRET)
  • fast and ultrafast imaging methods
  • super-resolution imaging/adaptive optics
  • optical fibers for Imaging applications
  • analysis of molecules, cells/bacteria, tissues
  • understanding cell processes
  • image analysis, chemometrics, artificial intelligence-based methods.
