Scientists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (LAP) have developed a spectrometer for the analysis of the molecular composition of biological samples, capable of detecting minimal variations in the chemical makeup of organic systems.
The research team led by Ferenc Krausz of the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics built its device to capture spectra of infrared light, revealing the molecular signatures of precancerous and malignant cells that are often found in biological samples too small to detect.
The research builds on technologies originally developed in the LAP for the production of ultrashort laser pulses. The spectrometer, built by Ioachim Pupeza and his colleagues, is designed to emit pulses of laser light…READ MORE
