What is biophotonics?
Biophotonics is the application of optics and photonics to biology, in the context of basic research, diagnosis and biomedical intervention. It is a transdisciplinary field that includes physics (optics, photonics), chemistry (spectroscopy, chromophores, nanomaterials), biology, biochemistry, medicine (DNA, proteins, cells, tissues, organisms), engineering (instrumentation) and ethics (in medicine, biology, environment and research).
