Biophotonics is a relatively novel multidisciplinary field that aims at determining relevant biological properties of tissues based on the physical properties (e.g. wavelength, phase) of the light emitted or reflected therefrom.

Biophotonics is the study of optical processes in biological systems, both those that occur naturally and in bioengineered materials. A particularly important aspect of this field is imaging and sensing cells and tissue. This includes injecting fluorescent markers into a biological system to track cell dynamics and drug delivery.
