Analyst is very pleased to announce the launch of our latest themed collection, focused on the topic of Biomedical Raman Imaging, guest edited by Paola Borri (Cardiff University, UK), Katsumata Fujita (Osaka University, Japan) and Analyst Advisory Board Member Wei Min (Columbia University, USA).
Raman spectroscopy has offered the potential as an optical biomedical imaging technique for many years due to the high molecular specificity, but has suffered from lack of sensitivity and the time taken for the measurements. Recent advances in instrumentation and variants on the technique such as SRS and CARS have addressed some of the limitations of the technique for biomedical imaging. This collection highlights advances in Raman spectroscopy aimed at improving the biomedical imaging capabilities and utility.
We invite submissions of articles or reviews on topics across this theme.
Accepted articles will be collated into an online collection as soon as they are accepted and the themed collection as a whole will be promoted as a complete collection in early 2021.
The submission deadline for this collection is September 30th 2020.
If you’re interested in submitting to the collection, please contact the Editorial Office.
