Abstract:

Laser induced auto- fluorescence and Raman spectra of serum from cancerous and normal people are measured and analyzed. Three Raman peaks were consistently observed from normal blood serum emission using 488.0nm and 514.5nm excitation of an Ar-ion laser whereas no peak or only slight Raman peaks were detected from tumorous cases. The content of - carotene in the serum from normal is higher than that from the cancerous one this result agrees with other reports.
