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.
