Paper Abstract

Using methods of optoacoustic spectroscopy, we investigated generation of heat after absorption of light pulse in hemolyzed and intact blood. Differences due to absorptions distribution (homogeneous or in erythrocytes) were theorectically evaluated. Experimental values for whole blood were found to be noticeably lower then those theoretically predicted, strongly suggesting an existence of metastable states in cells responsible for storage of absorbed energy. Consideration of different ways for utilization of light's absorbed energy shows as the most probable hemoglobin conformational states and heat induced local deformations of cell membrane.
