Raman spectroscopy has been used to identify and locate beta-carotene within individual living luteal cells. The cells were either freshly prepared or cultured; the latter was incubated in the presence or absence of beta-carotene in the form of enriched bovine high-density lipoprotein. Luteal cells were investigated using several Raman spectroscopic and(More)

We report on the tip-enhanced Raman spectra of C60 obtained on a custom-built apertureless scanning near-field optical microscope. A commercial atomic force microscope tip coated with 100 nm thickness of gold was used to enhance locally the Raman signal and permit topographic and spectral information to be acquired simultaneously. We present preliminary(More)
A reflectance measuring instrument (fibre-optic spectrometer linked to a personal computer) which will quantitate the results of immunoassays that result in the deposition of a coloured chromophore on a membrane or other similar solid phase (SP) is described and the reflectance spectra of some chromophores which are commonly produced or used in SP(More)
UV resonance Raman (UVRR) spectroscopy is used to study the binding of biotin and 2-iminobiotin by streptavidin, and the results are compared to those previously obtained from the avidin-biotin complex and new data from the avidin-2-iminobiotin complex. UVRR difference spectroscopy using 244-nm excitation reveals changes to the tyrosine (Tyr) and tryptophan(More)
We studied the anchoring of 6CB on a series of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) with a functional group that mimics that of the nematic liquid crystal (LC). The SAMs were first characterized by wetting, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, and surface potential measurements. We found that, in two of these SAMs, the end group dipoles were oriented close(More)
