Why biophotonics?

Biophotonics is at the core of societal, economic and technological issues. It has revolutionized the life sciences and medicine: therapeutic applications using light are more and more widespread; new optical imaging techniques make the human body transparent and pave the way for the exploration of the infinitely small. Optics are necessary for the development of new remote sensing methods to track changing environments, applications for the food industry, tools for studying the microbiome, and more.
