Aquaphotomics represents a unique tool for studying and understanding aqueous and biological systems, in real time and non-invasively.
Aquaphotomics has been developed using a deductive approach. It has two main goals: 1) To expand knowledge about the interaction between water and electromagnetic radiation; knowing all possible bands and spectral regions (water matrix coordinates, WAMACS) where water interacts with light and, thus can be monitored. 2) To use the water spectral patterns, WASPs, based on WAMACS and related to water structure and functionalities in various systems, in order to deduct information about water/system peculiarities.
Aquaphotomics aims to build a systematic knowledge of water bands over the electromagnetic spectrum. It then attempts to identify the water spectral patterns of biological and aqueous systems under different physical, chemical, biological, etc. perturbations and to correlate them to the structure and functionalities of water in these systems.
Possibilities are immense, and a wide panel of applications has already been successful, from measurement of low concentration of solutes, to food quality, to in vivo cell, plant, and animal disease diagnosis.
