Where biophotonics is used?
In general, biophotonics is a field of biology studying optical processes both occur naturally and via bioengineering in biological systems such as cells or organs.
Raman and FTIR spectroscopy
Despite numerous differences between the two research methods their main work processes are very similar. Both of them detect spectral fingerprints of unknown substances and compare them with databases. Both spectroscopy methods measure the level of interaction of energy with molecular bonds, However, the methods are not completely the same. FTIR measures how much light energy remains from the source, while Raman measures scatted energy from the laser.
Laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy
LIF works by studying the structure of molecules, detecting selective compounds, and visualizing biological and chemical structures. The main area of using LIF is to diagnose skin cancer by comparing spectrograms of patients with a database of malignant tissue. It is essential to highlight that it is only a non-invasive method of detection of skin cancers.
Laser micro-scalpels
It is a method of combination of fluorescence microscopy and a femtosecond laser used to target cells in 3 dimensions. The primary aim of using this technology is the completion of precise surgical operations without damage ging healthy cells. The main field of use is ophthalmology and phoniatrics.
