Photoelectronic Measuring and Biomedical Photoelectronic Research Laboratory



This laboratory engages in research in the fields of biomedical photoelectricity and polarizing photoelectronic measurements and is dedicated to expanding, improving, and applying ellipsometers and Mueller matrix measurement techniques to optimize systems for achieving automated and rapid measurements. Polarizing photoelectronic imaging is used to analyze the effects of biological samples on the polarization of light waves and investigate the biological characteristics and responses of the samples. While conducting research, students are trained in various related research to reinforce their knowledge in professional photoelectronic fields and to nurture their basic research skills, enabling them to discover, describe, and independently solve problems. Students will also learn to use software commonly used in this field, such as Solidworks for 3D drawing, MATLAB for computations, and Labview for system integrations. Students are also encouraged to make full use of the resources in the laboratory to learn autonomously and become fully equipped to establish a firm foundation for their future employment.
