Paper Abstract

Infrared and Raman spectroscopy are main methods for urine stones type identification today. At the same time they have a limited application for some types of urine stones. Moreover these methods are time-consuming, often hampered by pellet breakage and interpretation of spectra for quantifying urinary calculus constituents in mixtures is difficult, requiring expert knowledge by trained technicians. The other known methods for analyse urinary calculus constituents besides their merits have also such demerits as inexactitude in type identification and high cost of analysis. We propose a new method for urine stones type determination. It is based on luminescent spectroscopy. In this work the results of researches of spectrums of excitation and luminescence of dry tailings of urine are considered. The nature of watched luminescence of urine is explained. Dependence between urine stone type and luminescence maximum localization is investigated.
