Paper Abstract

We report on a novel approach to study cells and tissues exposed to laser radiation. By using a tightly focused laser beam, a selected area of a cell or a tissue can be selectively irradiated, and the results of this interaction can be immediately interrogated using Raman confocal microscopy. We present our experimental results for skin and eye tissues and individual retinal pigmented epithelium cells demonstrating a great potential of this new research paradigm.
