The paper will focus on the discussion of recent unique examples of Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) simulations and modeling of biophotonics applications including Optical Phase Contrast Microscope (OPCM) imaging of cells containing gold nanoparticles (NPs). The discussion includes the case of OPCM microscopy as a prospective modality for in vivo flow cytometry. The application of the FDTD approach for the simulation of OPCM and flow cytometry imaging opens a new application area with a significant research potential.
