Graphical Abstract

In the current research, structure of Single–Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWCNT) and Multi–Walled Carbon Nanotubes (MWCNT) was investigated by Attenuated Total Reflectance Fourier Transform Infrared (ATR–FTIR) and Raman spectroscopies and it was combined with Carbon nanotubes to evaluate its ability in act as radar absorber for interpreting infrared and Raman spectra of human cancer cells, tissues and tumors. In order to structurally characterize the sample and to determine characteristics related to degree of wave absorption by the sample, some analyses such as Back Scattering Raman, Attenuated Total Reflectance Fourier Transform Infrared Biospectroscopy (ATR–FTIR), X–Ray Diffraction (XRD) and Network Analyzer (NA) were used. The structure of Single–Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWCNT) and Multi–Walled Carbon Nanotubes (MWCNT) was clearly observable through active modes of Raman spectra and results of X–Ray Diffraction (XRD). According to Network Analyzer (NA) spectrum analysis, the effect of nanotubes on wave absorption characteristics of sample was determined for interpreting infrared and Raman spectra of human cancer cells, tissues and tumors.
