The application of FT IR Raman spectroscopy to biological and biomedical materials is a new and rapidly evolving method. It has been shown that near-infrared excitation coupled with Fourier-transforms of the total scattered photon intensity can efficiently eliminate the large fluorescence emission. In this presentation near-infrared Fourier-transform Raman spectroscopy is applied for the first time to obtain the vibrational Raman spectra from breast benign tissue, benign tumors, and malignant tumors.
