This work presents the results of the study of plasterwork decorations located on the stalactite vaults of the Hall of the Kings in the Alhambra (Granada, Spain) by means of Raman micro-spectroscopy.

A feasibility study has used inverse SORS to detect a very low Raman-active turbid sample inside a highly Raman-active diffusely scattering matrix, exemplifed by embedding chicken muscle tissue into solid paraffin blocks.

People with diabetes must monitor their blood glucose concentration so that they can take appropriate medication in a timely manner. This usually involves the use of a pin-prick test, which many people find painful and inconvenient. Now, contact lenses that use Raman spectroscopy to measure glucose in tears could offer a wearable and non-invasive testing alternative.
