Bishnubrata Patra Award Candidate Study on Vascular Formation inside a Cell Spheroid by Using Selective Plane Illumination and Confocal Microscopy
Bishnubrata Patra,Yu-Sheng Peng,Chien-Chung Peng,Wei-Hao Liao Liao,Yu-An Chen,Keng-Hui Lin,Yi-Chung Tung,Chau-Hwang Lee,

Formation of perfusable vascular networks is an important topic for tissue engineering. We cocultured human umbilical vein endothelial cells with hepatocellular carcinoma cells as spheroids of various sizes, and used selective plane illumination and confocal microscopy to monitor the structures of the endothelial cells inside a spheroid.

Chun-Nien Liu Award Candidate Study of Ce-Doped Crystal Fibers Fabricated by Fiber Drawing Tower Technique
Chun-Nien Liu,Yi-Chung Huang,Pi-Ling Huang,Sheng-Lung Huang,Wood-Hi Cheng,

The fabrication of Ce-doped fibers (CeDFs) employing drawing-tower method with rod-in-tube and powder-in-tube technique is demonstrated. The fluorescence spectrum of CeDFs exhibited a 120-nm broadband emission with 1.45 μm axial resolution. This CeDF may be functioned as a high- resolution light source for optical coherence tomography (OCT) applications.

Yi-Fang Wang Award Candidate The Effect of Platelets on the Viability and the Viscoelasticity of Circulating Tumor Cells under Fluid Shear Stress
Yi-Fang Wang,Yin-Quan Chen,Chien-Hsiu Huang,Zhi-hong Zhong,Muh-Hwa Yang,Arthur Chiou,

Platelets adhering to circulating tumor cells may play an import role in cancer metastasis. In this study, we reveal that platelets adhesion increases cell viscoelasticity and enhance resistance to cellular damage caused by fluid shear stress, resulting in less apoptotic cells and higher metastasis ability.

Kun-Che Li Award Candidate Nonlinear Fiber Optics on Nonlinear Laser Scanning Microscopy
Kun-Che Li,Chi-Hsiang Lien,Jyan-Yo Lu,Ming-Che Chan,

Nonlinear fiber optics and nonlinear light microscopy are two totally distinct research areas. In this work, we demonstrate that by efficient wavelength-conversion mechanisms in a highly nonlinear fibers. And the fiber-delivered femtosecond 1.2-1.35 micron down-converted and 0.6-0.8 micron up-converted light sources were then utilized for nonlinear microscopy for the first time.

Tze-Hung Ju Inkjet-printed cytochrome c protein for long wavelength infrared sensing
Tze-Hung Ju,Suo-Feng Liang,Guo-Dung Su,

We submitted the design of an IR microbolometer to Chip Implementation Center (CIC) in Taiwan. After we received the chips back from CIC, we ink-jetted Cytochrome c protein onto the aluminum electrode. Finally, we demonstrated the TCR of 28.27%. This value is much higher than most materials used in microbolometers.

Yuan-Chin Chiu Study of Sensitivity and Resonance Response for Three-layer Structure Surface Plasmon Resonance Fiber Sensors
Hsiang-Yu Liu,Yuan-Chin Chiu,Shu-Ming Yang,Woo-Hu Tsai,

In this paper, we proposed a three-layer structure Au/ITO/Au fiber sensor based on surface plasmon resonance to improve the sensing sensitivity for the index-matching oil measurements with the refractive index ranged from 1.30 to 1.39. The results show the sensitivity can be increased 25.8% significantly.

Jia-Wen Hsu Photochemical thrombosis in larval zebrafish targeting the screening of thrombolytic drugs
I-Ju Lee,Jia-Wen Hsu,Ju-Hao Tu,Ian Liau,

In light of the limitation of conventional animal models of thrombosis, we develop an application of a photochemical means to initiate thrombosis in targeted blood vessels of zebrafish larvae. This approach is extensible to induce ischemic stroke in zebrafish and may facilitate the screening of drugs with thrombolytic capability.

Cheng-Hsien Lin Study of Bi-Metal Surface Plasmon Resonance Fiber Sensors with Applied Magnetic Field
Hua-Li Yeh,Cheng-Hsien Lin,Shu-Ming Yang,Woo-Hu Tsai,

We propose a new optical fiber sensor with bi-metal layers structure based on surface plasmon resonance to study the sensing sensitivity improvement under an applied external magnetic field. The results show that the magnetic field can enhance the sensing sensitivity and change the resonance absorption dip wavelength obviously.

Cheng-Han Wu Differentiate Human Leukocytes with Third Harmonic Generation and Two-photon Fluorescence Microscopy
Cheng-Han Wu,Tzu-Ming Liu,

Recognizing different types of leukocytes without a label is very helpful for flow cytometry in clinical medicine. Here we show a new method to differentiate the types of human leukocyte by using third harmonic generation and two-photon auto-fluorescence microscopy. Cell identities were confirmed by immunohistochemical fluorescence labels.

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.
