Raman Whispering Gallery Detects Nanoparticles
A Raman microlaser sensor can detect and count individual particles — including viruses — as small as 10 nm. Researchers led by Dr. Lan Yang of Washington University achieved Raman lasing in a silica microcavity or whispering gallery. Within the microcavity, two modes of the beam emitted by the Raman laser circulate in opposite directions. When a particle lands on...
