Optics Programs

  1. Aug 4, 2013 #1
    I have a very strong interest in optics with biomedical applications, and I have been noticing this field growing over the last few years; however, the number of programs seem very limited. The big programs are University of Central Florida, University of Rochester, and University of Arizona. I do not want to limit myself to applying to three programs. What other candidates exist and currently growing? Does anyone know if the Fitzpatrick institute at Duke has ambitious future plans? I ask about Duke mostly due to their strong link in medicine.

    I attended the University of Alabama in Huntsville and would encourage you to look at what they have to offer. Other possible programs include: Beckman Laser Institute (U. California Irvine), Drexel, and the University of Alabama in Birmingham.

    Generally, you may be looking for a strong Biomedical Engineering program instead of a Physics program.
