Teaching of optical diffraction methods in biomedicine to undergraduates specializing in optics

Paper Abstract

The report presents a circulation plan of the course of Diffraction Methods in Biomedicine. When teaching the course, the special attention is drawn to an analysis of strongly focused Gaussian beams diffraction in random media. Original materials included in lectures provide the most complete study of the question. The diffraction fundamentals are taught in accordance with Rytov, Kravtsov and Tatarsky's book under the title of 'Introduction in Statistical Radiophysics'. Delivering lectures is combined with practical undergraduate training in speckle optics problems and seminars. The seminars are organized as scientific conferences. Along with theoretical course the laboratory training is foreseen. In particular, the paper describes two set-ups designed for investigations of human pulse waves, cardiovibrations and for measurements of white rats lymph and blood flows in vivo.
