Paper Abstract

The lowest detectable fluorescence signal level from biomedical specimens have been determined using a spectrometer, cooled CCD detector, and PIN photodiode with 365 nm UV LED light excitation. The data indicates the PIN photodiodes have adequate sensitivity for detection of tissue fluorescence with a sufficient signal-to-noise ratio. This data is being used to design a "pill-sized" Compact Photonics Explorer (CPE) for in vivo cancer optical diagnostics.
