Detecting anthrax in the mail by coherent Raman microspectroscopy. Academic Article uri icon


  • In this report, we show the collection of spatial information through a turbid medium by coherent Raman microspectroscopic imaging. In particular, the technique is capable of identifying anthrax endospores inside a sealed paper envelope.
