New robust and rapid approach that simplifies polarimetric measurements published by the Côté laboratory

Members of the Neurophotonics Centre have published a new robust and rapid approach to simplify polarimetric measurements in second-harmonic generation, two-photon excited fluorescence and coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering. The technique consists of adding a second properly oriented compensation dichroic to negate any scrambling of the polarization by polarimetric microscopy.

New Raman probe detects brain cancer cells with more precision

A team lead by Frédéric Leblond, Professor at Polytechnique Montréal, and Kevin Petrecca, Chief neurosurgeon at the McGill University Health Centre, with collaborators at the Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University and the MUHC has developped a new probe that can detect cancer cells in the brain with a precision higher than the existing technology.
The probe, which works by Raman spectroscopy, can detect cancer cells that are not detectable by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
