Event Details

This is an extended talk based on my talk at the 27th International Conference on Raman Spectroscopy (ICORS), Aug. 15-19, 2022. Raman scattering was discovered almost one hundred years ago, and Raman spectroscopy has been instrumental in extending our understanding of molecules. Many Raman techniques has been developed for a broad range of applications and it is clear that a new era of commercializing Raman technologies is happening right now. I’ll review some of these new techniques, and also introduce FASTER CARS technique, which is promising to provide molecular-resolution imaging for biomolecules [1]. As another example, improved coherent Raman imaging techniques using non-classical light sources, while technically challenging, is likely to make a real impact in bioimaging.
