In vivo Raman Measurements of Human Skin
2 February 2007
Confocal Raman spectroscopy is beginning to be recognized as a high potential technique for the non invasive study of biological tissues and human skin under in vivo conditions. Raman spectroscopy can be applied to obtain information regarding the molecular composition of the skin down to several hundred micrometers below the skin surface. This application note presents an in-depth spectra of the epidermis from which information regarding its composition can be obtained.
