About this Reference Work

Nanophotonics has emerged rapidly into technological mainstream with the advent and maturity of nanotechnology available in photonics and enabled many new exciting applications in the area of biomedical science and engineering that were unimagined even a few years ago with conventional photonic engineering techniques. Handbook of Nanophotonics in Biomedical Engineering is intended to be a reliable resource to a wealth of information on nanophotonics that can inspire readers by detailing emerging and established possibilities of nanophotonics in biomedical science and engineering applications. This comprehensive reference presents not only the basics of nanophotonics but also explores recent experimental and clinical methods used in biomedical and bioengineering research. Each peer-reviewed chapter of this book discusses fundamental aspects and materials/fabrication issues of nanophotonics, as well as applications in interfaces, cell, tissue, animal studies, and clinical engineering. The organization provides quick access to current issues and trends of nanophotonic applications in biomedical engineering. All students and professionals in applied sciences, materials, biomedical engineering, and medical and healthcare industry will find this essential reference book highly useful.

About the authors

Dr. Donghyun Kim received a B. S. with summa cum laude and an M. S. from Seoul National University in 1993 and 1995, respectively, both in electronics engineering. He graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, MA, U.S.A. in 2001 with a Ph. D. in electrical engineering in the area of novel multi-dimensional display technologies and smart optical filters developed for military applications. He worked on next generation fiber-optic access communication systems at Photonic Research and Test Center, Somerset, NJ, of Corning Inc. as a senior research scientist and then investigated cellular biophotonic sensors for in vitro cell culture devices at Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering of Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, as a postdoctoral fellow. Since 2004, He has been in charge of Biophotonics Engineering Laboratory of Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea. He served as program chair for the Information Technology Program of Underwood International College, Yonsei University and has directed the Yonsei Institute of Medical Instruments Technology.
The main theme of his research has been fundamental studies of nanophotonic technology and applications in biomedical engineering with an emphasis on plasmonic techniques. Plasmonics rapidly emerges as a novel toolbox that would allow highly sensitive nanosensors as well as imaging platforms with super-resolution. He has given 40+ invited lectures on related topics and written more than 100 peer-reviewed journal and conference publications on nano and biophotonics, many of which were the results of collaboration with researchers of diverse backgrounds across the world. He also holds 21 international patents and works closely with many renowned industrial partners in the area. In recognition of the research achievements, He was awarded a Korean Research Foundation Young Investigator Award in 2005, LG Scholar Fellowship in 2009, and recently Leap Research Award, one of the most pres

tigious funding awards from the National Research Foundation of Korea, in 2011. He has organized many local and international conferences in the field of nano/biophotonics including Asian and Pacific Rim Symposium on Biophotonics, Surface Plasmon Photonics 2011, and SPIE Global Congress on Nanosystems in Engineering and Medicine‎ 2012. He has also held visiting researcher appointments at Rutgers University, State University of New Jersey, and University of California at Irvine..
