A special year for light


To celebrate the contribution of optics to humankind, the UN proclaimed 2015 as the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies. Light is truly special. The minute optical region of the vast electromagnetic spectrum is the only one that provides molecular information directly. Due to the fundamental importance of molecules to organisms, light plays a unique role in biology and medicine. Interfacing between engineering and biomedicine, biomedical optics will continue to grow in years to come and will find even greater impact in human health.
