Photoacoustic techniques can be used to measure the absorption spectrum of many biochemical samples such as blood and mitochondria. According to the spectrum, we select some laser wavelengths to irradiate the mitochondria and then compare the respiratory control rate (RCR) of mitochondria with and without laser irradiation. It is found that laser irradiation has some effect on the RCR of mitochondria at some wavelengths. This is meaningful for understanding the mechanism of laser biostimulation.
