Optical Super Resolved Imaging and Fluorescent Microscopy For Outstanding Graduate Students
The summer program of the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering allows graduate students to acquire extensive academic experience in a vibrant social and cultural environment at Israel’s most advanced department of electrical engineering. The program centers around one core course carrying 4 academic credits.
Target audience and requirements
Bachelor’s degrees (BEng, a graduate in engineering, BArch, BTech, BSc) graduates.
Potential for advanced studies (MSc. or Ph.D.) level.
Required prior knowledge: Introduction to optics course (with a final grade of at least 80).
A CV including a list of courses, syllabus, and final grades and two recommendation letters must be applied.
Good level of English (Ability to read and write).
Acceptance of each academic course is dependent on the approval of prerequisites by Bar-Ilan.
Notice: Excellent graduate students (MSc, Ph.D.) are invited to apply.
The Program will take place between July 13th – August 6th, 2020.

The field of super-resolution relates to the effort of developing various approaches to exceed the limitations of the existing imaging system without changing its optics or its detection array and while allowing resolving finer spatial details. In this course, we aim to teach a large variety of super resolving approaches presenting significant improvement in spatial resolving capabilities in the transversal as well as in the axial (extension in depth of focus) dimensions. The proposed approaches to be taught involve time multiplexing, space multiplexing, wavelength multiplexing, geometric super resolving concepts, and others. The teaching of the super-resolved concepts will include approaches relevant for remote sensing as well as approaches for near field imaging dealing also with fluorescent nanoscopy- PALM, STORM, STED, and structured illumination microscopy.
At the end of the course, each student needs to give a short talk. During the morning (8-10 AM) 2 hours English course will prepare the students for this mission.
Topic Covers include among others
Space bandwidth product adaptation technique.
Optical super-resolution exceeding the aperture limitation by the usage of time, space, wavelength, and angels multiplexing.
Near field optical super-resolution.
Nanoparticles based nanoscopy.
Time-Domain and Frequency-Domain Lifetime Measurement (including hands-on Lab).
Fluorescence-Lifetime Imaging Microscopy and Anisotropy (including hands-on Lab).
Metal-Enhanced Fluorescence (including hands-on Lab).
Surface Plasmon-Coupled Emission.
All classes taught by Prof. Dror Fixler, and Prof. Zeev Zalevsky.
Notice: Attendees should have some knowledge of fluorescence, typically in a specialized area.
