The Random Raman Laser: A New Light Source for the Microcosmos

Texas A&M University researchers demonstrate how a narrow-band strobe light source for speckle-free imaging has the potential to reveal microscopic forms of life. In modern microscope imaging techniques, lasers are used as light sources because they can deliver fast pulsed and extremely high-intensity radiation to a target, allowing for rapid image acquisition. However, traditional lasers come with a significant disadvantage in that they produce images with blurred speckle patterns - a visual artifact that arises because of a property of traditional lasers called "high spatial coherence."

Microsecond Raman Imaging Might Probe Cells, Organs for Disease

A vibrational spectroscopic imaging technology that can take images of living cells could represent an advanced medical diagnostic tool for the early detection of cancer and other diseases. High-speed spectroscopic imaging makes it possible to observe the quickly-changing metabolic processes inside living cells and to image large areas of tissue, making it possible to scan an entire organ.

Raman Imaging: Seeing the Motion of Single Molecule in Real Time

UC Irvine chemists have scored a scientific first: capturing moving images of a single molecule as it vibrates, or "breathes," and shifts from one quantum state to another. The groundbreaking achievement, led by Ara Apkarian, professor of chemistry, and Eric Potma, associate professor of chemistry, opens a window into the strange realm of quantum mechanics - where nanoscopic bits of matter seemingly defy the logic of classical physics.
