Background researches

The first part of our project has been spent making background studies. We had to get information (and integrate it!) about the subjects of our project, but also about basic techniques, technologies or coumpounds we were using. Background research is one of a first point of a design process. Because while designing an experiment or a prototype, we need to make informed choices. We were also lacking many informations, for example optics laws and possibilities that are essential for fluorescence measurement and hene necessary to design our prototypes.

You will find a presentation of the most important subjects that mobilized us for the baground studies. These subjects (at least the four first) are important to understand our prototypes.
