Real-time detection of bacterial spores using coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy Academic Article uri icon


  • We demonstrate a realistic method for detection of anthrax-type spores in real time based on their chemical fingerprints using coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering. Specifically, we demonstrate that coherent Raman scattering can be used to successfully identify spores with high accuracy and high selectivity in less than 50 ms. 2008 American Institute of Physics.
