Abstract

We monitored time-dependent changes in the Raman spectra of optically trapped red blood cells. By fitting the Raman peaks of individual spectra over time, high-precision time evolutions of peak positions and intensities were obtained. These changes are dependent on the trapping laser power. Characteristic times for these changes were determined for each laser power by fitting the time courses with multi-exponential curves. Raman spectral dynamics showed significant and irreversible changes as a function of trapping duration that we attribute to a combination of photodamage of hemoglobin at short times followed by diffusion of hemoglobin out of the cell at longer times.
