Capillary assembly is a versatile method for depositing colloidal particles within templates, resulting in nano/microarrays and colloidal superstructures for optical, plasmonic, and sensory applications. Liquid particles (LPs),...Read More
Non-invasive multimodal imaging by integrating optical coherence tomography with autofluorescence imaging for dental applications.
We report the development of an integrated multi-functional imaging system capable of providing anatomical (optical coherence tomography, OCT), functional (OCT angiography, OCTA) and molecular imaging (light-induced...Read More
Smart nanocarriers for the transport of drugs to tumor cells are nowadays of great interest for treating cancer. The use of enzymatic stimuli to cleave peptide-based drug nanocapsules for the selective release of nanocapsules...Read More
Out-of-Plane Nanoscale Reorganization of Lipid Molecules and Nanoparticles Revealed by Plasmonic Spectroscopy.
Lipid bilayers assembled on solid substrates have been extensively studied with single-molecule resolution as the molecules diffuse in 2D, however the out-of-plane motion is typically ignored. Here we present sub-nanometer...Read More
We report the spectrum of nitric oxide (NO) in the ultraviolet (UV) (225.4 – 227.0 nm) region based on cavity ringdown spectroscopy (CRDS). A cavity ringdown system, which consisted of a tunable UV laser source and a...Read More
Experimental studies on computed tomographic peritoneography. Peritoneal and residual renal function tolerance to iodinated contrast media injected into the peritoneal cavity.
Computed tomographic (CT) peritoneography has been widely used as reference standard to evaluate continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis-related complications. However, given the varying CT peritoneography approaches used...Read More
Trans-esophagogastric junction pressure gradients during straight leg raise maneuver on high-resolution manometry associate with large hiatus hernias.
Straight leg raise (SLR) while supine increases intra-abdominal pressure. We hypothesized that elevations in intra-abdominal pressure would transmit into the thoracic cavity if the esophagogastric junction (EGJ) was...Read More
Biological cells are complex environments that are densely packed with macromolecules and subdivided by membranes, both of which affect the rates of chemical reactions. It is well known that crowding reduces the volume available...Read More
GeSn resonant-cavity-enhanced photodetectors for efficient photodetection at the 2 µm wavelength band.
The 2 µm wavelength band has recently gained increased attention for potential applications in next-generation optical communication. However, it is still challenging to achieve effective photodetection in the 2 µm wavelength...Read More
