Precise Wavelength Used to Gently Image Lungs of Newborns
Precise Wavelength Used to Gently Image Lungs of Newborns
To avoid the harmful radiation resulting from x-rays, near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy has been used to image oxygen concentrations in the lungs of newborns, a technique that could be used to noninvasively monitor premature babies with underdeveloped lungs and increase survival rates. Emilie Krite Svanberg, an anesthesiologist and researcher at Lund University, reported a spectroscopic method using precisely 760.445-nm light. Both continuous-wave and time-resolved techniques were applied; both were able to determine changes in tissue oxygenation, though the time-resolved technique reported more realistic values with smaller interindividual differences.

Gas/Fiber Hybrid Laser Achieves Stable MIR Emission
Gas/Fiber Hybrid Laser Achieves Stable MIR Emission
A gas/fiber hybrid laser is capable of pulsed and continuous mid-infrared (MIR) emission between 3.1 and 3.2 µm, a spectral range that has long presented a major challenge for laser developers. The achievement could aid in the development of additional applications for MIR lasers, which are currently used in spectroscopy, environmental sensing and detecting explosives.

Light Reflectance Spectroscopy Aids Prostate Cancer Surgery
Light Reflectance Spectroscopy Aids Prostate Cancer Surgery
Light-reflectance spectroscopy has been used during prostate cancer surgery to differentiate between malignant and benign tissue with 85 percent accuracy. The finding could enable real-time tissue analysis during the surgery. According to the National Cancer Institute, the most common cancer in men — second only to skin cancer — is prostate cancer. After lung cancer, prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in U.S. males.

Wasp-Inspired Needle Could Advance Spectroscopy for Disease Detection
Wasp-Inspired Needle Could Advance Spectroscopy for Disease Detection
A robotic surgical system inspired by the anatomy of wood-boring wasps could be used in Raman spectroscopy to detect cancerous and diseased tissue. The prototype needle design is based on female parasitoid wasps, which use a bendable needle-like ovipositor to bore into wood to lay eggs in hiding host larvae. The technology consists of a minimum of three tiny interlocked polymer shafts, which slide alongside one another, mimicking the way the ovipositor works. The segments move in a complex pattern to minimize the needle's impact on surrounding tissue, enabling it to travel along curved paths with dexterity and access hard-to-reach areas deep in tissue.
