Brillouin spectroscopy is almost as old as Raman spectroscopy, but its applications to biology and medicine are lagging those of Raman spectroscopy. We believe that it is the lack or minimum availability of commercial instruments which makes such advancements slow and, often, inefficient. Over the past years there appeared to be a revitalized interest in Brillouin microscopy and its biomedical applications, which triggered the development of new tools and techniques for Brillouin imaging.
In this webinar hosted by the Applied Spectroscopy Technical Group, Dr. Vladislav Yakovlev of Texas A&M University will summarize most of the recent progress in the area of instrumentation development, which resulted in an astonishing 6 orders of magnitude increase in the acquisition speed and 2 orders of magnitude improvement in spectral accuracy of Brillouin peaks’ analysis. The combination of these advancements brought a succession of new applications ranging from static imaging of eye’s cornea and biomaterials to dynamic changes of developing cells and tissues. As part of this webinar Dr. Yakovlev will outline several possible future directions in order to answer the question ‘what is next for Brillouin spectroscopy in biology and medicine?’
