Now, Raman Spectroscopy to help analyse lipstick traces in crime scenes

Forensic scientists have devised a new way of finding out which brand of lipstick a lady was wearing at a crime scene without removing the evidence from its bag, thereby avoiding possible contamination.

Raman spectroscopy modulated for broader biomedical applications

Scientists have now demonstrated the advantages of wavelength-modulated Raman spectroscopy, opening the door to wider biomedical and clinical applications such as real-time assessment of tissues during surgery.

The inelastic scattering of light from any sample is called the Raman effect, named for the Nobel prize-winner C.V. Raman.
