Seeing Cells in a New Light: A Renaissance of Brillouin Spectroscopy

Open Access Open Access


Over the years, inelastic light scattering from acoustic waves has grown to be increasingly important remote imaging and sensing. This type of scattering, known as Brillouin scattering, has already seen a plethora of applications in physics and engineering. However, the potential for Brillouin scattering for medical imaging and diagnostics has only recently been considered. In this presentation, I summarize most of the recent advancements in instrumentation and outline some of the most exciting potential applications.
