Fast, Automatic and Label-free Cell Discrimination by Raman
Hiro-o Hamaguchi,Hiro-o Hamaguchi,

Raman microspectroscopy, an alliance of Raman spectroscopy and confocal optical microscopy, is now widely used for label-free and molecular-level investigations of living cells. Here I review recent technical advances in our research group of the hardware as well as the software of Raman microspectroscopy of living cells. The advances in the hardware includes the developments of a multi-focus confocal Raman microspectrometer and a fast spiral raster scanning confocal Raman microspectrometer.These new techniques enable fast Raman imaging of living cells in several to several tens of second, an order of magnitude faster than existing commercial Raman microspectrometers. The new software utilizes the multivariate curve resolution-alternating least squares (MCR-ALS) method to obtain molecular component distribution imaging of living cells. Under appropriate model constraints, such as non-negativity and norm regularization for spectral profiles and their intensities, this new software provides physically interpretable spectral components without a priori knowledge on existing chemical components. These new software/hardware have been successfully applied to fast, automatic and label-free discrimination of living cells such as white blood cells and cardiac muscle cells.

Shih-Hua Chen Identified early stage mycosis fungoides from psoriasis and atopic dermatitis using non-invasive color contrast enhancement by LEDs lighting
Shih-Hua Chen,Hsiang-Chen Wang,

In this study, the spectrum of each picture element of the patient’s skin image was obtained by multi-spectral imaging technology (MSI). Spectra of normal or pathological skin were collected from 30 patients (10 early stage MF, 10 psoriasis vulgaris, and 10 atopic dermatitis). An algorithm combined with multi-spectral imaging and color reproduction technique is applied to find the best enhancement of the difference between normal and abnormal skin regions. Accordingly, an illuminant with specific intensity ratio of red, green, and blue LEDs is proposed, which has optimal color enhancement for MF detection. Compared with the fluorescent lighting commonly in the use now, the color difference between normal and inflamed skin can be improved from 11.8414 to 17.4002 with a 47% increase, 8.7671 to 12.8544 with a 26.3% increase, and 11.0735 to 17.2634 with a 34.3% increase for MF, psoriasis, and atopic dermatitis patients, respectively, thus making medical diagnosis more efficient, so helping patients receive early treatment.

Extreme imaging and biomedical applications
Keisuke Goda,Keisuke Goda,

High-speed optical imaging is an essential tool for studying fast dynamics in plasma physics, microfluidics, phononics, and photochemistry. Unfortunately, conventional cameras based on CCD and CMOS image sensors are not fast enough to capture such events with high sensitivity. This is due to the fundamental trade-off between sensitivity and speed – at high frame rate, fewer photons are detected during each frame. In this talk, I introduce unconventional approaches to high-speed optical imaging that overcome the trade-off in the traditional image sensors and offer a record high frame rate and shutter speed without sacrificing sensitivity. I also present a new class of biomedical applications enabled by the technology such as high-throughput screening for cancer detection and drug discovery.

Application of Nanoplasmonics in Color Printing
Joel Yang,Joel Yang,

The interaction of light with metal nanostructures gives rise to the collective oscillation of electrons, which can be engineered to resonate at different wavelengths by tuning the size and geometry of the structures. This phenomenon can be used to create high-resolution color prints. While the resolution of inkbased color printers is limited to ~1,000 dots-per-inch (dpi) due to the intermixing and the size of the ink drops, nanostructured metal can achieve prints at ~100,000 dpi1. At this resolution, different color pixels with dimensions of ~ 250 nm can be juxtaposed without registration errors, and color prints can be achieved at the optical diffraction limit.

Stimulated Emission (SE) has distinctive characteristics different from fluorescence lifetime image microscopy (FLIM) in that the coherence nature of SE signals enables long distance observation. In SE microscopy, the coincidences of pump and probe beams in space and time are essential. Previously the coincidence in time was accomplished by translational stage and delay cables, now we can accomplish this by a fully digital system, in which the relative delay between pump and probe beam is controlled by a function generator and delay generator, and delay can be adjusted as short as 30ps.

Transdermal drug delivery systems (TDDS) have been an attracting field in drug delivery because of its benefit over parenteral and oral administration. Recent studies illustrate that microneedle (MN) can penetrate through stratum corneum (SC) barrier without damaging nerves. In this study, we used optical coherence tomography (OCT) to investigate the temporal effects on skin induced by MN for transdermal drug delivery. With OCT, the morphological changes in skin due to MN can be identified from 2D or 3D OCT image. Moreover, the penetration depth and damaged area can be quantitatively evaluated. In addition, OCT was used to reconstruct micro-angiography of mouse skin and to observe the changes in micro-angiography induced by MN. Finally, OCT is implemented for dynamic evaluation of skin recovery after using MN array for drug delivery.

Sandeep Chakraborty,Chiao-Ming Huang,Artashes Karmenyan,Jin-Wu Tsai,Arthur Chiou,

We applied two photon fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (TP-FLIM) to determine the fluorescence lifetime as well as the amounts of endogenous fluorophores, NADH and FAD, in normal and Parkinson’s disease induced PC12 cells. Our results show a significant difference in cellular metabolic state in normal vs. diseased cells.

Ting Huo Polycrystalline Silicon Nanowire Ammonia Sensors
Ting Huo,

Ammonia sensors are easily affected by relative humidity (RH) when performing electrical measurement. In this paper, we have found that this undesirable effect can be improved by applying cyclohexane-triphenylene (cchxnTP) as modification layers of nanowire devices. We also discuss the relation between surface modification and morphology in sensing mechanisms.

Chia-Ta Tseng Simulation analysis of the angular span of the Optical Phase Conjugation Phenomenon using pseudospectral time-domain technique
Chia-Ta Tseng,Snow H. Tseng,

The pseudospectral time-domain (PSTD) technique is employed to obtain numerical solutions of Maxwell’s equations. Outgoing light is recorded and used to generate phase-conjugated light which back-propagates through the scattering medium. By changing the angular span, we can analyze different angular spans and help determine the optimal angular span for back-propagation of light.

Li-Chung Cheng,Chia-Wei Lee,Chi-Hsiang Lien,Yong Da Sie,YulingYvonne Hu,Chun-Yu Lin,Fan-Ching Chien,Chris Xu,Chen Yuan Dong,Shean-Jen Chen,

The light diffraction of temporal focusing multiphoton excitation microscopy (TFMPEM) and the excitation patterning of nonlinear structured-illumination microscopy (NSIM) can be simultaneously implemented via a single high-resolution digital micromirror device. The lateral and axial spatial resolutions of the TFMPEM are remarkably improved through the second-order NSIM and structured light, respectively.
