Research Objective
Biomedical Optics Laboratory is focused on developing novel optical methods based on interferometry, scattering and manipulation of light, for the purpose of (1) imaging biological and medical samples, (2) understanding the physics of diseases, and (3) diagnosing and treating the disease. Hosted by the Department of Physics and the KAIST Institute (KI), the lab is performing highly interdisciplinary research at the interface between technology development, basic biological studies and clinical applications.

Research Interests
Medical imaging: multiple light scattering in a turbid medium (biological tissue)
Biophotonics: interferometric-based novel imaging techniques
Biophysics: pathophysiology of cells

From January 2016
Maximum available positions
The ideal candidates may have experience in one or more of the following fields: Wave optics, Fourier Optics, interferometry, light scattering, digital holography, optical imaging system design and construction.
