About the Author

Lingyan Shi is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Bioengineering at the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering. She is developing/applying new optical imaging and spectroscopic technologies to solve biomedical questions. Her recent major scientific contributions include the discovery of the "Golden Optical Window" for deep brain imaging, and the development of a breakthrough platform that combines deuterium probing with Stimulated Raman Scattering (SRS) for imaging of metabolic dynamics in living organisms. Shi is a member of Tau Beta Pi, OSA, SPIE, SfN, ASME, NYAS, and BMES.

Robert R. Alfano is a distinguished professor of science and engineering at the City College of New York. He has pioneered many applications of light and photonics technology to study biological, biomedical, and condensed matter systems using optical spectroscopy and imaging. He discovered and has used supercontinuum. Prof. Alfano is a fellow of the American Physical Society, the Optical Society, and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.

"This impressive volume represents a landmark publication on the use of optical methods for deep
biomedical imaging--a field that has been transformed by a variety of technical innovations in recent
years. Editors Shi and Alfano have secured contributions from top names in the field, for an extensive
compilation that comprehensively details the new state of the art, including forefront advances and
developments. Fully covering applications, methods and theory, this lavishly illustrated book is destined
to become a reference classic." - Prof. David L. Andrews, University of East Anglia, UK

"This very timely book provides a highly comprehensive and very authoritative coverage of novel
imaging technologies using multimodal optical spectroscopy and light scattering, aimed towards
noninvasive deep tissue diagnostic and fundamental understanding of diseases such as cancers and
brain disorders. I highly recommend this book as an introductory guide on optical imaging for students,
as well as a valuable reference for scientists, engineers, and biomedical researchers who are seeking a
better understanding of deep optical imaging in biological tissues or biomaterials in life science
research." - Prof. Paras N. Prasad, State University of New York at Buffalo, USA

"This is an excellent and up-to-date account of biomedical imaging research. The subject matter
includes the important topics of the field, including the necessary fundamental background such as
nonlinear optical processes and highly scattering optical phenomena. Each of the topics is well written
by the well-established subject matter experts, and the book is comprehensive and self-contained. The
background material is well integrated into the text with the important references included." - Dr.
Daniel A. Nolan, Corning Inc., USA

"Drs. Shi and Alfano have expertly put together an extremely strong collection of chapters written by leaders in the field of deep imaging in biomedical materials. The technical material gives a thorough background as well as a broad view of the most state-of-the-art results worldwide. This book is a must-read for both active researchers in this field and students studying the topic."
--Prof. Alan E. Willner, University of Southern California, USA
