This book provides wide-ranging coverage of current developments in biomedical sensing based on photonic techniques. Biomedical
sensing is a dynamic topic that promises to deliver much in the future evolution of medical diagnostics, delivering advanced
tools for fundamental research in biology at the micrometre and nanometre scales. The book explores a variety of alternative
physical and biological methodologies that have become available for application, such as plasmonic sensors and photonic crystal
biosensors. At the same time, it addresses issues that potentially limit the capability of biomedical optical sensing techniques,
while reviewing the state-of-the-art in biomedical optical sensing for the future work that will lead to near-universal applications
of such techniques. Edited and written by leading experts in this domain, this book is ideal as a comprehensive manual for
researchers and graduate students.
