Teaching

  • Spring 2020, Interdisciplinary Project Design (융합 프로젝트 설계)
  • Fall 2020, Optical Microscopy (광학 현미경법)

    This course offers a detailed overview of optical microscopy used in biological, medical and industrial measurements. Topics include optical microscope theory, key microscope components and mechanics, and the principles of various modern optical microscopes including bright-field, phase, polarization, fluorescence, confocal, nonlinear, light-sheet, super-resolution microscopes (SIM, STED, PALM/STORM). This introductory course is aimed at both microscope users and developers and helps students leverage microscopy knowledge in their own research or later in industry.
    생물학 및 의학 연구나 산업 측정 분야에서 핵심 도구인 광학 현미경법의 상세한 개요를 소개한다. 광학 현미경의 조명/결상 원리 및 성능, 광학/기계 핵심 요소품, 그리고 명시야, 위상, 편광, 형광, 공초점, 비선형, 광시트(light-sheet), 초고분해능 현미경(SIM, STED, PALM/STORM)을 포함한 다양한 종류의 현대 광학 현미경법을 다룬다. 본 교과목은 광학 현미경 이용자 또는 개발자를 대상으로 하며, 학생들이 현미경 지식을 자신의 연구나 차후에 산업 현장에서 활용하는 데 도움을 주는 것을 목표로 한다.

  • Spring 2021, Advanced Optical Imaging Theory (고등 광학 이미징 이론)

    This course introduces advanced optical imaging theory based on wave optics. Topics include derivation of paraxial imaging equations for partially coherent imaging systems, analysis of imaging systems in the spatial and frequency domains, and calculation of imaging point spread functions and transfer functions under optical aberration and/or spatial light modulation. Students also learn how to apply vectorial diffraction theory, considering polarization and non-paraxial propagation of light, to generalized optical systems. This course aims to help students acquire useful knowledge for research projects in the area of optical technology such as optical imaging, modern optical microscopy, optical tweezers, and optical data storage.
    본 강의는 파동 광학에 기반한 광학 이미징 이론을 소개한다. 일반화된 이미징 시스템의 근축 결상 방정식을 유도하고 결상 특성을 공간 및 주파수 공간에서 해석하는 방법을 습득한다. 광학 수차 또는 공간 광변조가 있는 이미징 시스템의 점퍼짐함수 및 전달함수 계산법을 다룬다. 나아가 빛의 편광이나 비근축 전파를 고려하는 벡터 회절 이론을 일반화된 광학 시스템에 적용하는 방법을 소개한다. 본 강의에서는 광학 이미징, 현대 광학 현미경법, 광학 족집게, 광학 데이터 저장 등 광기술 분야의 다양한 연구 프로젝트 수행에 도움이 되는 지식 습득을 목표로 한다.
