research areas within.  Below, I have summarized three of the research topics that I  found most interesting. Biomedical Laser Laboratory Dr. Xin-Hua Hu gave a presentation on the Biomedical Laser Laboratory.  As  stated by Dr. Hu, the broad intention of his research is to understand biological systems  by light interactions.  Ultimately, knowledge can be gained regarding “the pathways and  parameters of energy transfer that are fundamental to the understanding of biological  systems”.  The laboratory conducts research utilizing experimental results, as well as  computational modeling. Dr. Hu’s discussion began with an overview of light-matter interactions, and two  methods of detecting light signals:  coherent detection and incoherent detection.  Coherent detection requires modeling of electromagnetic wavefields, and is useful for  probing objects in the micro-meter scale.  Incoherent detection is only concerned with  energy transport by light, and is appropriate for larger objects (mm to cm range). There are several potential applications utilizing the research of Dr. Hu and his
