STIMULATED RAMAN SCATTERING (SRS) MICROSCOPY AND ITS BIOMEDICAL APPLICATIONS
Fudan University, China
Stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) microscopy is a nonlinear version of Raman microscopy. SRS has unique capabilities of label-free, high chemical specificity and sensitivity. It could selectively image the distributions of biomolecules (such as lipids, protein and DNA) based on their different vibrational spectra. This talk will introduce the basic principles of SRS, as well as a few biomedical applications, including in-vivo brain tumor detection, label-free imaging of DNA and protein misfolding.
