CHEM 116 - Imaging Science in Art, Medicine, and Astronomy with Laboratory


FDR: SL
Credits: 4

Prerequisite: Prerequisite: Instructor consent. Modern art analysis, medical imaging, and astrophysics/astrochemistry emphasize remote sensing – i.e., the ability to obtain information (often chemical information) about something without making physical contact with it. This course will establish the rudiments of various chemical imaging modalities and conclude with projects involving the acquisition and processing of remote sensing data sets from art and astronomy. Some major medical imaging methodologies will be introduced. This non-calculus laboratory course assumes nothing other than basic high school math. No prior science courses are required. However, students will be expected to use, with assistance, the mathematical, statistical, and computational methods we introduce in the course.
