    Description: This course covers the fundamental physics and math behind optical microscopy. An emphasis is on physical principles of a variety of advanced optical imaging techniques, including super-resolution imaging, FCS, FRET, FLIM, SPIM, and nonlinear microscopies, as well as their applications in biological sciences. The physics and math level will assume some familiarity with geometrical and physical optics and complex exponential notation.
