The Raman spectroscopy channel covers research into all aspects of this non-destructive technique including surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS), and related applications such as drug detection, forensics, environmental analysis, art and archaeology research, food quality analysis, homeland security, cancer research and material science.
Stimulated Raman scattering imaging can be used to follow glucose uptake activity in living cells by using a derivative of the sugar molecule tagged with an alkynyl group. The technique has been demonstrated on live mouse brain hippocampal neurones and tumour tissues.Read More
