Abstract
UV resonance Raman spectroscopy (UVRRS) is becoming a very popular spectroscopic method for bioanalytical investigations due to its high sensitivity, lack of fluorescence, and suitability for use in aqueous solutions. We have made a number of technological advances, especially the development of fiber-optic-based technologies, which permit the performance of remote/in-situ UVRRS measurements. We will be reporting on improved optical fiber probes and demonstrate their benefits in performing UVRRS on neurotransmitters, saliva, and urine.
