MATSCI 12SC: Lenses to Remove Limits: Microscopy

Sigmund Freud once wrote 'With every tool, man is perfecting his own organs or removing the limits to their functioning...by means of the microscope he overcomes the limits of visibility set by the structure of his retina.' This course will describe the science behind and impact of microscopy. Lectures will cover both basic and advanced techniques in optical microscopy, electron microscopy, and atomic force microscopy, giving ample time to discuss the science behind the 2014 and 2017 Nobel Prizes (awarded for super-resolution and cryo-electron microscopy, respectively). Laboratory work will give students hands-on experience visualizing the world, both natural or engineered, with ultra-high resolution. Field trips to biotech, energy and computing industries will supplement lectures, illustrating how microscopy forms the foundation for many commercial technologies and products. We will also discuss the future of imaging and microscopy, including the "hardware" needed to push resolution limits as well as the "software" (i.e., AI, VR) that enhances the visualization experience.

MATSCI 299: Practical Training

Educational opportunities in high-technology research and development labs in industry. Qualified graduate students engage in internship work and integrate that work into their academic program. Following the internship, students complete a research report outlining their work activity, problems investigated, key results, and any follow-on projects they expect to perform. Student is responsible for arranging own employment. See department student services manager before enrolling.
