FMF Summer School: Biomedical Optics Workshop

As a part of FMF Summer School 2018, a workshop about spectroscopy and electromagnetic fields was organised by young researchers. The short introductory lecture was followed by experimental part where participants gained knowledge about spectroscopic measurements, spectra of edible dyes and sunscreens.

In the second part the theories were tested on their skin. They learned how the skin spectrum looks like and how it is affected by the content of melanin, irritation and various sunscreens.
