Precision Spectrum Biomedical Detection Technology Group

Research Direction:

By using the physical characteristics of multi-spectrum and different spectral bands, the macroscopic and microstructure properties of biomedicine were explored, and through all-around research on cells and tissues, the application of precision spectral biomedicine detection technology in biological detection and biomedicine was promoted. The precision spectrum biomedical detector and the analytical instrument used for biomedical assisted diagnosis is developed. The multi-spectral fingerprint information of biological tissues is formed by exploring the multi-spectral signal characteristic spectrum of different biological structures and influencing factors in vivo and vitro. A real-time multi-spectral spectral analysis system is realized by constructing multi-band spectral analysis suitable for the detection of biological tissues or structures, providing supports for medical diagnosis.

From micro and macro perspectives, through all-around research on the cell, tissue, organ and individual, with the practical precision spectrum biomedical detection system as the mainline, to satisfy the demands of national biomedical development. By solving the core problem of interaction between living organisms and electromagnetic field, such as high efficient broadband terahertz radiation source, low loss terahertz devices, integrated stabilization system, etc., and by applying the core devices in the application system, the research can reach the detection of biological cells, tissues and integrated spectrum system.

The research direction of the team is to use the physical characteristics of multi-spectrum and its different spectral bands to detect the macro and microstructure properties in biomedicine and promote the application of precision spectrum biomedical detecting technology in biological detection and biomedicine through all-round research of cells and tissues, At the same time, the team also emphasizes the R&D of precision spectrum biomedical detecting and analysis instruments and equipment for biomedical auxiliary diagnosis. After exploring the characteristic spectrum of multispectral signals with different biological structures and the impact factors in vivo and in vitro, there forms the multispectral fingerprint information of biological tissues After constructing multi-band spectral analysis suitable for biological tissue or structure detection, a real-time multiband spectral analysis system can be realized to provide auxiliary support for future medical diagnosis.


The team has sets of femtosecond laser systems and Fourier transform infrared spectrometer, terahertz emission source, terahertz detector, high-speed oscilloscope, terahertz time-domain spectrometer and other instruments.
