Gas lasers with excited dimers (i.e., excimers) as the active medium. The most commonly used are rare gas monohalides (e.g., argon fluoride, xenon chloride). Their principal emission wavelengths are in the ultraviolet range and depend on the monohalide used (e.g., 193 nm for ArF, 308 nm for Xe Cl). These lasers are operated in pulsed and Q-switched modes and used in photoablative decomposition involving actual removal of tissue. (UMDNS, 2005)
Tunable liquid lasers with organic compounds (i.e., dye) which have a strong absorption band, used as the active medium. During emission, the dye has to be optically excited by another light source (e.g., another laser or flash lamp).

Fluorimetric multiparameter cell assay at the single cell level fabricated by optical tweezers. (1/3679)

A fluorimetric multi-parameter cell sensor at the single cell level is presented which makes it possible to observe the physiological behavior of different cell lines, different physiological parameters, and statistical data at the same time. Different cell types were immobilized at predefined positions with high accuracy using optical tweezers and adhesion promoting surface layers. The process is applicable to both adherent and non-adherent cells. Coating of the immobilization area with mussel adhesive protein was shown to be essential for the process. Intracellular proton and calcium concentrations in different cell classes were simultaneously imaged and the specific activation of T lymphocytes was demonstrated. This method should be especially useful for drug screening due to the small sample volume and high information density.  (+info)

A repetitive mode of activation of discrete Ca2+ release events (Ca2+ sparks) in frog skeletal muscle fibres. (2/3679)

1. Ca2+ release events (Ca2+ 'sparks'), which are believed to arise from the opening of a sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) Ca2+ release channel or a small cluster of such channels that act as a release unit, have been measured in single, frog (Rana pipiens) skeletal muscle fibres. 2. Under conditions of extremely low rates of occurrence of Ca2+ sparks we observed, within individual identified triads, repetitive Ca2+ release events which occurred at a frequency more than 100-fold greater than the prevailing average event rate. Repetitive sparks were recorded during voltage-clamp test depolarizations after a brief (0.3-2 s) repriming interval in fibres held at 0 mV and in chronically depolarized, 'notched' fibres. 3. These repetitive events are likely to arise from the re-opening of the same SR Ca2+ release channel or release unit operating in a repetitive gating mode ('rep-mode'), rather than from the random activation of multiple, independent channels or release units within a triad. A train of rep-mode events thus represents a series of Ca2+ sparks arising from a single location within the fibre. Rep-mode events are activated among different triads in a random manner after brief repriming. The frequency of repetitive events among all identified events during voltage-clamp depolarization to 0 mV after brief repriming was 3.9 +/- 1.3 %. The occurrence of repetitive events was not related to exposure of the fibre to laser illumination. 4. The events observed within a rep-mode train exhibited a relatively uniform amplitude. Analysis of intervals between identified events in triads exhibiting rep-mode trains indicated similar variations of fluorescence as in neighbouring, quiescent triads, suggesting there was not a significant number of small, unidentified events at the triads exhibiting rep-mode activity. 5. The distribution of rep-mode interspark intervals exhibited a paucity of events at short intervals, consistent with the need for recovery from inactivation before activation of the next event in a repetitive train. The mean interspark interval of repetitive sparks during voltage-clamp depolarizations was 88 +/- 5 ms, and was independent of membrane potential. 6. The individual Ca2+ sparks within a rep-mode train were similar in average amplitude and spatiotemporal extent to singly occurring sparks, suggesting a common mechanism for termination of the channel opening(s) underlying both types of events. The average properties of the sparks did not vary during a train. The relative amplitude of a spark within a rep-mode was not correlated with its rise time. 7. Repetitive Ca2+ release events represent a mode of gating of SR Ca2+ release channels which may be significant during long depolarizations and which may be influenced by the biochemical state of the SR ryanodine receptor Ca2+ release channels.  (+info)

Elimination of EVE protein by CALI in the short germ band insect Tribolium suggests a conserved pair-rule function for even skipped. (3/3679)

The question of the degree of evolutionary conservation of the pair-rule patterning mechanism known from Drosophila is still contentious. We have employed chromophore-assisted laser inactivation (CALI) to inactivate the function of the pair-rule gene even skipped (eve) in the short germ embryo of the flour beetle Tribolium. We show that it is possible to generate pair-rule type phenocopies with defects in alternating segments. Interestingly, we find the defects in odd numbered segments and not in even numbered ones as in Drosophila. However, this apparent discrepancy can be explained if one takes into account that the primary action of eve is at the level of parasegments and that different cuticular markers are used for defining the segment borders in the two species. In this light, we find that eve appears to be required for the formation of the anterior borders of the same odd numbered parasegments in both species. We conclude that the primary function of eve as a pair rule gene is conserved between the two species.  (+info)

Enhanced hatching rate of bovine IVM/IVF/IVC blastocysts using a 1.48-micron diode laser beam. (4/3679)

PURPOSE: Our purpose was to test whether zona pellucida (ZP) drilling using a 1.48-micron diode laser beam on bovine IVM/IVF/IVC blastocysts is effective for embryo hatching. METHODS: Blastocysts produced in vitro at day 7 after IVF were divided into control and laser-drilled groups, respectively. RESULTS: When the rates of in vitro development of bovine embryos were examined, the average cleavage rate (> or = two-cell) was 82.3% and the blastocyst rate at day 7 after IVF was 32.5%. Using these blastocysts, when the laser drilling effect was investigated at 48 hr after treatment, the total hatching rate in the laser-drilled group (98.0%) was significantly higher than that in the control group (60.0%) (P < 0.001). Especially, the hatched rate of the laser-drilled group (68.0%) was significantly enhanced compared with that of the control group (30.0%) (P < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: These results demonstrated that laser ZP drilling on bovine IVM/IVF/IVC blastocysts can significantly increase the hatching rate.  (+info)

Altered ligand rebinding kinetics due to distal-side effects in hemoglobin chico (Lysbeta66(E10) --> thr). (5/3679)

Hb Chico is an unusual human hemoglobin variant that has lowered oxygen affinity, but unaltered cooperativity and anion sensitivity. Previous studies showed these features to be associated with distal-side heme pocket alterations that confer increased structural rigidity on the molecule and that increase water content in the beta-chain heme pocket. We report here that the extent of nanosecond geminate rebinding of oxygen to the variant and its isolated beta-chains is appreciably decreased. Structural alterations in this variant decrease its oxygen recombination rates without significantly altering rates of migration out of the heme pocket. Data analysis indicates that one or more barriers that impede rebinding of oxygen from docking sites in the heme pocket are increased, with less consequence for CO rebinding. Resonance Raman spectra show no significant alterations in spectral regions sensitive to interactions between the heme iron and the proximal histidine residue, confirming that the functional differences in the variant are due to distal-side heme pocket alterations. These effects are discussed in the context of a schematic representation of heme pocket wells and barriers that could aid the design of novel hemoglobins with altered ligand affinity without loss of the normal allosteric responses that facilitate unloading of oxygen to respiring tissues.  (+info)

Undercarboxylation of recombinant prothrombin revealed by analysis of gamma-carboxyglutamic acid using capillary electrophoresis and laser-induced fluorescence. (7/3679)

The gamma-carboxyglutamic acid (Gla) content of several variants of human prothrombin has been measured by using capillary electrophoresis and laser-induced fluorescence (CE-LIF). Both plasma-derived prothrombin and recombinant prothrombin contain ten residues of Gla per molecule of protein. In contrast, a variant of human prothrombin (containing the second kringle domain of bovine prothrombin) was separated into two populations that differed in their Gla content. Direct measurement of the Gla content showed an association with the presence or absence of the calcium-dependent conformational change that is required for prothombinase function. Thus, the CE-LIF assay is useful in determining the carboxylation status of recombinant proteins.  (+info)

High-speed, random-access fluorescence microscopy: II. Fast quantitative measurements with voltage-sensitive dyes. (8/3679)

An improved method for making fast quantitative determinations of membrane potential with voltage-sensitive dyes is presented. This method incorporates a high-speed, random-access, laser-scanning scheme (Bullen et al., 1997. Biophys. J. 73:477-491) with simultaneous detection at two emission wavelengths. The basis of this ratiometric approach is the voltage-dependent shift in the emission spectrum of the voltage-sensitive dye di-8-butyl-amino-naphthyl-ethylene-pyridinium-propyl-sulfonate (di-8-ANEPPS). Optical measurements are made at two emission wavelengths, using secondary dichroic beamsplitting and dual photodetectors (<570 nm and >570 nm). Calibration of the ratiometric measurements between signals at these wavelengths was achieved using simultaneous optical and patch-clamp measurements from adjacent points. Data demonstrating the linearity, precision, and accuracy of this technique are presented. Records obtained with this method exhibited a voltage resolution of approximately 5 mV, without any need for temporal or spatial averaging. Ratiometric recordings of action potentials from isolated hippocampal neurons are used to illustrate the usefulness of this approach. This method is unique in that it is the first to allow quantitative determination of dynamic membrane potential changes in a manner optimized for both high spatiotemporal resolution (2 micrometers and <0.5 ms) and voltage discrimination.  (+info)

In the modern world optical sensor systems have a vast number of applications. In this research work the system composed of the two cameras and the laser illumination with the 49 lasers is considered. In the previous research work we proposed the general calibration technique for this system. It was shown that the most complicated subtask in this technique is determining the beam directions for the laser illumination calibration because it couldnt be solved using the known algorithms. The main stages which are required to execute for determining the beam directions for the laser illumination are: tracking of the laser illumination points in the image sequence of the calibration object; calculation of the coordinates in space for the found laser illumination points; constructing the laser beams in space passing close as much as possible to the found points. Within the scope of the research carried out, all the main stages for determining the beam directions for the laser illumination are ...

The strongly localized interaction process of ultrashort laser pulses with tissue makes femtosecond lasers a powerful tool for eye surgery. These lasers are now routinely used in refractive surgery and other forms of surgery of the anterior segment of the eye. Several clinical laser systems also offer options for corneal grafting and the potential use of ultrashort pulse lasers in glaucoma surgery has been the object of several recent studies which have shown promising results. While devices aimed for interventions in clear tissue may be based on available solid state or fibre laser technology, the development of tools for surgery in more strongly scattering tissue has to account for the compromised tissular transparency and requires the development of optimized laser sources. The present paper focuses on surgery of clear and pathological cornea as well as sclera. It aims to give an overview over typical medical indications for ultrashort pulse laser surgery, the optics of the tissues involved, the

Endoscopic resection of early colorectal neoplasms typically employs electrocautery tools, which lack precision and run the risk of full thickness thermal injury to the bowel wall with subsequent perforation. We present a means of endoluminal colonic ablation using picosecond laser pulses as a potential alternative to mitigate these limitations. High intensity ultrashort laser pulses enable nonlinear absorption processes, plasma generation, and as a consequence a predominantly non-thermal ablation regimen.. Robust process parameters for the laser resection are demonstrated using fresh ex vivo pig intestine samples. Square cavities with comparable thickness to early colorectal neoplasms are removed for a wavelength of 1030 nm and 515 nm using a picosecond laser system. The corresponding histology sections exhibit in both cases only minimal collateral damage to the surrounding tissue. The ablation depth can be controlled precisely by means of the pulse energy. Overall, the application of ultrafast ...

The external cavity receives a portion of one of the continuous wave beams from the ring cavity modulates it, and retroreflects it back to the ring cavity to initiate mode-locked unidirectional operation. The unidirectional mode-locked operation is in a direction which decouples the external cavity.
A laser diode, (LD), injection laser diode (ILD), or diode laser is a semiconductor device similar to a light-emitting diode in which the laser beam is created at the diodes junction. Laser diodes are the most common type of lasers produced, with a wide range of uses that include fiber optic communications, barcode readers, laser pointers, CD/DVD/Blu-ray disc reading/recording, laser printing, laser scanning and light beam illumination. A laser diode is electrically a PIN diode. The active region of the laser diode is in the intrinsic (I) region, and the carriers (electrons and holes) are pumped into that region from the N and P regions respectively. While initial diode laser research was conducted on simple P-N diodes, all modern lasers use the double-hetero-structure implementation, where the carriers and the photons are confined in order to maximize their chances for recombination and light generation. Unlike a regular diode, the goal for a laser diode is to recombine all carriers in the I ...
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a condition affecting the retina and is the leading cause of vision loss. Dry AMD is caused by the accumulation of lipid deposits called drusen, which form under the retina. This work demonstrates, for the first time, the removal of drusen-like deposits underneath ARPE-19 cell layers using femtosecond laser pulses. A novel cell culture model was created in response to the limited access to primary cell lines and the absence of animal models that recapitulate all aspects of AMD. In the cell culture model, deposits were identified with fluorescent stains specific to known deposit constituents. Trains of sub-10 femtosecond laser pulses from a Ti:Sapphire laser were used to successfully ablate the deposits without causing damage to surrounding cells.

The newly generated pulses at a center wavelength of 515 nm have a pulse energy of 3 J with a pulse duration of 120 fs. On the basis of initially ultra-high contrast seed pulses we expect a temporal intensity contrast better 10 17 200 ps before the peak of the main pulse. We analyzed the temporal intensity contrast from milliseconds to femtoseconds with a dynamic range covering more than 20 orders of magnitude. The pulses were focussed with a f/2-focussing parabola resulting in a peak intensity exceeding 10 20 W / cm 2 . The peak power and intensity

Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) coupled with the linear multivariate regression method was utilized to analyze chromium (Cr) quantitatively in potatoes. The plasma was generated using a Nd:YAG laser, and the spectra were acquired by an Andor spectrometer integrated with an ICCD detector. The models between intensity of LIBS characteristic line(s) and concentration of Cr were constructed to predict quantitatively the content of target. The unary, binary, ternary, and quaternary variables were chosen for verifying the accuracy of linear regression calibration curves. The intensity of characteristic lines Cr (CrI: 425.43, 427.48, 428.97 nm) and Ca (CaI: 422.67, 428.30, 430.25, 430.77, 431.86 nm) were used as input data for the multivariate calculations. According to the results of linear regression, the model of quaternary linear regression was established better in comparing with the other three models.

A study on the role of laser wavelength in keratoplasty assisted by ultrashort pulse lasers is presented. This article gives a summary of the principal physical mechanisms contributing to the transparency of healthy corneas and presents transparency measurements as well as laboratory experiments on tissue with lasers at different wavelengths. The transparency of a healthy cornea is strongly related to its regular structure at micrometer and nanometer length scales. Many indications for keratoplasty are associated with a perturbation of this structure and therefore with a sometimes strongly reduced tissue transparency. This explains the often unsatisfactory results obtained when using ultrashort pulse lasers for the procedure. Theoretical considerations and laboratory experiments show that the light scattering processes responsible for the loss in laser beam quality depend strongly on wavelength and the use of wavelengths longer than those presently used allows these processes to be almost
An electron microscope study has been made of vitally stained single cells whose cytoplasm has been subjected to a localized ruby laser microbeam. Light and moderate laser absorption (the resultant of stain concentration and laser energy density) produced restricted selective damage of mitochondria in cells stained with Janus green B; heavy laser absorption resulted in mitochondrial damage, as well as in nonselective interaction with other cell structures. With four other basic vital stains, the polysomes, ergastoplasm, mitochondria and other organelles at the irradiated site were uniformly damaged. Unstained cells showed no morphological alterations. With light primary damage (that restricted to the irradiation site), no secondary effects of the incident radiation were observed. With moderate primary damage, however, secondary damage of the mitochondria in the unirradiated cell portions was produced, which was reversible within 4 hr after irradiation. Heavy primary lesions caused severe ...

The cell selective introduction of therapeutic agents remains a challenging problem. Here we demonstrate spatially controlled cavitation instigated by laser-induced breakdown of an optically trapped single gold nanoparticle of diameter 100 nm. The energy breakdown threshold of the gold nanoparticle with a single nanosecond laser pulse at 532 nm is three orders of magnitude lower than water, which leads to nanocavitation allowing single cell transfection.

Absolute values of the two-photon absorption cross-sections of Rhodamine 6G, Rhodamine B, Acridine Red, Disodium Fluorescein and DODCI have been obtained by excitation with a neodymium: glass laser (1060 nm). Measurements over eight orders of magnitude of the exciting light flux were carried out by employing the laser both Q-switched and mode-locked. The two-photon fluorescence flux measurements were calibrated by single-photon fluorescence generated by excitation with second-harmonic laser pulses. The experimental results are compared with values predicted by semi-empirical theoretical models and good agreement is obtained. Two-photon amplification of the mode-locked neodymium laser by organic dyes is shown not to be practicable at present. Other possible two-photon oscillators are discussed. ...
Laser-induced cell transfer has been developed in recent years for the flexible and gentle printing of cells. Because of the high transfer rates and the superior cell survival rates, this technique has great potential for tissue engineering applications. However, the fact that material from an inorganic sacrificial layer, which is required for laser energy absorption, is usually transferred to the printed target structure, constitutes a major drawback of laser based cell printing. Therefore alternative approaches using deep UV laser sources and protein based acceptor films for energy absorption, have been introduced. Nevertheless, deep UV radiation can introduce DNA double strand breaks, thereby imposing the risk of carcinogenesis. Here we present a method for the laser-induced transfer of hydrogels and mammalian cells, which neither requires any sacrificial material for energy absorption, nor the use of UV lasers. Instead, we focus a near infrared femtosecond (fs) laser pulse (lambda = 1030 nm, ...

Laser diffraction analysis, also known as laser diffraction spectroscopy, is a technology that utilizes diffraction patterns of a laser beam passed through any object ranging from nanometers to millimeters in size to quickly measure geometrical dimensions of a particle. This process does not depend on volumetric flow rate, the amount of particles that passes through a surface over time. Laser diffraction analysis is based on the Fraunhofer diffraction theory, stating that the intensity of light scattered by a particle is directly proportional to the particle size. The angle of the laser beam and particle size have an inversely proportional relationship, where the laser beam angle increases as particle size decreases and vice versa. Laser diffraction analysis is accomplished via a red He-Ne laser, a commonly used gas laser for physics experiments that is made up of a laser tube, a high-voltage power supply, and structural packaging. Alternatively, blue laser diodes or LEDs of shorter wavelength ...
A Continuous Wave (CW) sub-THz photonic synthesis setup based on a single Passively Mode-Locked Laser Diode (PMLLD) acting as a monolithic Optical Frequency Comb Generator (OFCG) and highly selective optical filtering has been implemented to evaluate the phase noise performance of the generated sub-THz signals. The analysis of the synthesized sub-THz signals up to 120 GHz gives as a result an effective reduction of the electrical linewidth when compared to direct harmonic generation that begins at 50 GHz and becomes greater as the frequency increases. The phase noise reduction offered by the setup, along with its integration potential, cost and bandwidth, make it a promising candidate to the development of an integrated and high performance low phase noise local oscillator in the sub-THz range ...

The tissue contact member further has an input surface for receiving laser energy redirected by the laser energy redirecting member and transmitting the laser energy received from the laser energy redirecting member. The tissue contact member terminates in a tissue contact surface having a radius of
Pollution of water is a matter of concern all over the earth. Particles are known to play an important role in the transportation of pollutants in this medium. In addition, the emergence of new materials such as NOAA (Nano-Objects, their Aggregates and their Agglomerates) emphasizes the need to develop adapted instruments for their detection. Surveillance of pollutants in particulate form in waste waters in industries involved in nanopartide manufacturing and processing is a telling example of possible applications of such instrumental development. The LIBS (laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy) technique coupled with the liquid jet as sampling mode for suspensions was deemed as a potential candidate for on-line and real time monitoring. With the final aim in view to obtain the best detection limits, the interaction of nanosecond laser pulses with the liquid jet was examined. The evolution of the volume sampled by laser pulses was estimated as a function of the laser energy applying conditional analysis
Mode-locked fibre lasers generating ultrashort pulses with the advantages of robustness, compactness and excellent beam quality are of tremendous interest in applications such as laser material processing, medicine, precision measurement, biological photonics, ultrafast spectroscopy, optical communication and scientific research. In recent decades, mode-locked ultrafast fibre lasers operating in the near-infrared and mid-infrared spectral regions have been well developed, but ultrafast laser sources in the visible spectral region (380-760 nm) still heavily rely on Ti:sapphire mode-locked oscillator and optical parametric amplification systems (or frequency doubling of near-infrared ultrafast lasers), suffering from a large footprint and an extremely high cost. Researchers desire an alternative ultrafast visible laser solution that is compact, low cost, user friendly and maintenance free. Passive mode locking in all-fibre format could satisfy all these demands, and therefore, there is strong ...

In an annealing process of illuminating a semiconductor thin film with laser light, in the case where the laser illumination is performed at an energy level that is lower than an output energy range that allows a laser apparatus to operate most stably, the laser output is fixed somewhere in the above output energy range and the illumination energy is changed by inserting or removing a light attenuation filter into or from the laser illumination optical path. As a result, the time required for the laser processing can be shortened.

OBJECTIVE: Laser stimulation of Adelta-fibre nociceptors in the skin evokes nociceptive-specific brain responses (laser-evoked potentials, LEPs). The largest vertex complex (N2-P2) is widely used to assess nociceptive pathways in physiological and clinical studies. The aim of this study was to develop an automated method to measure amplitudes and latencies of the N2 and P2 peaks on a single-trial basis. METHODS: LEPs were recorded after Nd:YAP laser stimulation of the left hand dorsum in 7 normal volunteers. For each subject, a basis set of 4 regressors (the N2 and P2 waveforms and their respective temporal derivatives) was derived from the time-averaged data and regressed against every single-trial LEP response. This provided a separate quantitative estimate of amplitude and latency for the N2 and P2 components of each trial. RESULTS: All estimates of LEP parameters correlated significantly with the corresponding measurements performed by a human expert (N2 amplitude: R2=0.70; P2 amplitude: R2=0.70; N2
In annealing a non-single crystal silicon film through the use of a linear laser beam emitted by a YAG laser of a light source, it is the object of the present invention to prevent heterogeneity in energy caused by an optical interference produced in the linear laser beam from having an effect on the silicon film. The laser beam is divided by a mirror 604 shaped like steps into laser beams which have an optical path difference larger than the coherence length of the laser beam between them. The divided laser beams are converged on an irradiate surface 611 by the action of a cylindrical lens array 605 and a cylindrical lens 606 to homogenize the energy of the laser beam in the length direction and to determine the length of the linear laser beam. On the other hand, the laser beams divided by a cylindrical lens array 607 are converged on the irradiate surface 611 by a cylindrical lens 608 and a doublet cylindrical lens 609 to homogenize the energy in the width direction of the laser beam and to determine

I. Flagella and cell bodies of Crithidia (Strigomonas) oncopelti were irradiated at preselected points with a pulsed ruby laser microbeam. Results were recorded by high-speed cinephotomicrography. A flagellum could be completely amputated at the irradiated point.. 2. The portion of the flagellum between the cell body and the irradiated point beat from the base after irradiation. The amputated portion of the flagellum could beat from either the tip or the irradiated point, and could beat first from the tip and then from the irradiated point or vice versa. Beating could continue for up to ten cycles.. 3. For flagellar activity in this organism neither a unique region of the flagellum nor the cell body is necessary. Wave propagation appears to involve the transmission of a signal at a greater velocity than that of the wave. The results favour a model of bend propagation which allows for a distribution of autonomous initiators along the flagellar length.. ...

Their solution is not only useful, but also surprisingly simple.
Geometric and thermal calibration of CNC machine tools is required in modern machine shops with volumetric accuracy assessment becoming the standard machine tool qualification in many industries. Laser interferometry is a popular method of measuring the errors but this, and other alternatives, tend to be expensive, time consuming or both.

INFRARED PLASTIC WELDING WITH RECIRCUALTION OF UNABSORBED INFRARED LASER LIGHT TO INCREASE ABSORPTION OF INFRARED LASER LIGHT - Unabsorbed infrared laser light that has passed though plastic parts to be welded with a low absorption TTIr process is recirculated back to the low absorption weld interface for reabsorption in the process. A beam of infrared laser light is directed at the plastic parts to be welded, a transmissive first part and an absorptive (or partially absorptive) second part. The infrared laser light impinges the transmissive part and first transits through the transmissive part to be welded to a weld interface at the junction of the two parts. At the weld interface, either the infrared laser light is partially absorbed by an additive infrared absorber, the infrared laser light is partially absorbed by the absorptive part, or both. The portion of the infrared laser light that is not absorbed continues through the absorptive part and exits the far side. This infrared laser light ...

ABSTRACT: High power fiber lasers have made significant progress in last several years. Several kW of output power has been demonstrated, which enables a wide range of new applications from laser welding, laser cutting, and laser drilling to military defense. While high power fiber lasers have been successfully deployed in industry, one piece of critical components, fiber isolator, is still not available. For the moment, free-space isolator has to be used. In this proposal, we propose to develop an all-fiber isolator for 1 micron high power fiber lasers and amplifiers. An all-fiber isolator with multi-hundreds throughput power level will be demonstrated and delivered. Successful development of this proposed high Verdet constant fiber and all-fiber isolator will enable many new applications of high power fiber lasers, and revolutionize high power fiber laser and amplifier developments. BENEFIT: This proposed all-fiber isolator can be used for current DoD high power 1 micron fiber lasers and ...

The Laser-Induced Fluorescence (LIF) petroleum sensor is attached to a probe that is pushed into the ground with a truck-mounted hydraulic system (a cone penetrometer) to make real-time chemical measurements of contaminants, as part of the Site Characterization and Analysis Penetrometer System (SCAPS). The chemical sensor consists of a laser that fires short pulses of light into an optical fiber that runs through the probe. As the laser pulses pass into the soil through the probe window, petroleum contaminants in the soil respond by giving off a characteristic glow. This emitted light is carried back to the surface over a second fiber, and it is measured with a detector. The optical screening method provides a nearly continuous profile of contaminant distribution as the probe is pushed into the ground ...
Knowledge of the laser wavelength is essential in tunable IR laser spectroscopy. The scanning Michelson interferometer has the potential to compare the IR laser wavelength to a single, well-known calibration wavelength (e.g., HeNe laser) over a wide IR spectral range. In contrast to other recent work with scanning Michelson interferometers, we have added a phase-lock multiplier and counters to a $0.1 Cm^{-1}$ FTS laboratory interferometer to achieve an accuracy of $10^{-3}cm^{-1}$. This Idealab interferometer incorporated cats-eye mirrors, but its other features are probably representative of typical commercial interferometers. Measurements of a stable $CO_{2}$ laser have indicated a precision and calibratable accuracy of $0.001 cm^{-1}$ with $CO_{2}$ use of the HeNe laser monitor supplied with the interferometer. Achievement of the $0.0001 cm^{-1}$ precision and accuracy expected with the phase-lock multiplier is still under study as is the application of the wavemeter to the calibration of ...

Surface plasmons are photo-coupled quanta of electro excitation at the boundary of a metal and dielectric, which is a charge density wave of free electrons. Another important feature of surface plasmons resonance, in addition to the enhancement of electric field, is the ability to pass through surface structure smaller than incident laser wavelength and makes it have a potential to overcome the diffraction limit resulting in the breakthrough of nanotechnology. For surface plasmon resonance developing a mask with small feature size is vital. In this paper, mask fabrication by laser irradiation on self-assembly silica particles was described. Compared with the theoretical simulation, it is shown that self-assembly particle-assisted nanopatterning can fabricate a mask with very fine features effectively. With a proper particle size, laser wavelength and laser fluence, periodical structures generated can meet the requirement for surface plasmon use. © 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved ...
The current state-of-the-art in nanotip synthesis relies on techniques that utilize elaborate precursor chemicals, catalysts, or vacuum conditions, and any combination thereof. To realize their ultimate potential, synthesized nanotips require simpler fabrication techniques that allow for control over their final nano-morphology. We present a unique, dry, catalyst-free, and ambient condition method for creating densely clustered, flower-like, sodium oxide (Na2O) nanotips with controllable tip widths. Femtosecond laser ablation of a soda-lime glass substrate at a megahertz repetition rate, with nitrogen flow, was employed to generate nanotips with base and head widths as small as 100 and 20 nm respectively, and lengths as long as 10 μm. Control of the nanotip widths was demonstrated via laser dwell time with longer dwell times producing denser clusters of thinner nanotips. Energy dispersive X-ray analysis reveals that nanotip composition is Na2O. A new formation mechanism is proposed, involving an
NO laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) imaging and quantitative fuel distribution measurements in aport-fuel-injected 4-valve stratified-charge single-cylinder SI engine have been conducted using a tunable KrF excimer laser. The correlations between NO formation region and fuel distribution have been investigated for the horizontal stratification realized by fuel (iso-octane) injection in only one intake port. The NO LIF intensity is proportional to the exhaust NOx emissions. The strong NO LIF intensity region in expansion stroke corresponds to the location of the region with equivalence ratio (ϕ) between 0.8 and 1.1 in the stratified fuel distributions at spark timing. The exhaust NOx concentration is proportional to the area of region with ϕ =0.8 - 1.1. The relationship between the local NO LIF intensity and the local equivalence ratio ( ϕ L ) in the stratified-charge operation shows that NO is mainly formed in the local region with ϕ L=0.8 - 1.1, but that the maximum formation occurs at ϕ L ...

Faster recovery times and better visual outcomes are among the early results of a corneal transplant pilot study underway at the University of Michigan Kellogg Eye Center. The focus of this two-year pilot program - called the Femtosecond Laser Assisted Keratoplasty study, or FLAK - is the use of the ultrafast or femtosecond laser in performing full thickness corneal transplants.. Researchers at Kellogg were first to discover in the early 1990s that the femtosecond laser, then used for industrial purposes, had great potential for eye surgeries that traditionally required a surgical blade or knife. Through joint efforts of faculty from Kellogg and the U-M College of Engineering, the femtosecond laser was further developed, and is widely used for refractive surgery. Now, experts hope for the same success in applying this exceptionally fast and precise laser to cornea transplant surgery.. We hope that with the use of the femtosecond laser, patients will have better vision, faster recovery of ...

Background: Feline diabetes mellitus shares many similarities with human type 2 diabetes mellitus, including clinical, physiological and pathological features of the disease. The domestic cat spontaneously develops diabetes associated with insulin resistance in their middle age or later, with residual but declining insulin secretion. Humans and cats share largely the same environment and risk factors for diabetes, such as obesity and physical inactivity. Moreover, amyloid formation and loss of beta cells are found in the islets of the diabetic cat, as in humans. Altogether, the diabetic cat is a good model for type 2 diabetes in humans. The aims of the present study were to isolate feline islets using laser microdissection and to develop a quantitative method for detection of mRNA levels in islets of healthy and diabetic cats.Results: By using the laser microdissection technique, we were able to meticulously sample islets from both healthy and diabetic cats. Insulin staining of separate sections ...
Purpose : We present preliminary results for a novel femtosecond (FS) laser for creating corneal flaps on porcine globes. Methods : The novel next generation FS Laser was used to create LASIK flaps in porcine eyes (N=28) with a smaller laser spot size, faster rep rate and lower energy than current state of the art FS laser systems. Gross assessment of the laser pattern and placement were viewed with a surgical grade microscope. The lift of the flap was assessed using a scale of 1-4 (1= no lift, 2= moderate, 3= minimal, 4= no adhesion). Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) was used to evaluate wound architecture for uniform pattern fidelity. The flaps were removed and the cornea resected was sent for Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) analysis to evaluate the bed quality. Results : Following laser treatment, the globes were examined under a surgical grade microscope. A complete pattern was discernible with lighter and darker bubble patterns dependent upon the laser energy used. Uniformity of the ...

  • In 2005 the US Air Force assembled a new adaptive optics system that uses a laser beam to excite sodium atoms in the upper atmosphere . (
  • A laser beam has an intensity profile where typically the intensity is higher in the center, which means there are more photons coming out at the center of a laser beam. (
  • This is what is used to levitate small objects which are comparable to the size of the laser beam. (
  • Since photons also have momentum, atoms or molecules moving in the opposite direction to a laser beam can be zapped with laser light which reduces the atom/molecule's velocity. (

(
  • Several important discoveries and first observations have been made at the Trident Laser Facility , a unique three-beam neodymium-glass laser system for experiments requiring high-energy laser-light pulses. (
  • Infrared laser light is used in this application both because (a) infrared laser light is invisible, making naked-eye detection of the eavesdropping device unlikely, and(b) because a laser's light is all emitted at one frequency, measurement of Doppler shift of the reflected beam is straightforward.

  • In fact, a perfect laser beam still expands, albeit very slowly. (
  • This is why when you see cool publicity photos of Lunar Laser Ranging experiments (the one above is from this NASA experiment ), you always see the beams shooting out of observatory domes-- they need to start their beams from a big telescope to have any hope of detecting the return beam. (
