The topics covered by the lectures will be:
· Optical Imaging
o Introduction to optical microscopy: bright-field, dark-field, phase contrast,
autofluorescence /fluorescence
o Imaging techniques with fluorescent probes: confocal microscopy, FRAP, FRET, STED,
TIRF, two-photon excitation microscopy
· Electron microscopy & spectromicroscopy
o Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy (EDX),
Wavelength Dispersive Spectroscopy (WDS)
