  • Publication number: 20210091527
    Abstract: The invention relates to an apparatus for generating laser pulses. It is an object of the invention to provide a method for generating synchronized laser pulse trains at variable wavelengths (e.g., for coherent Raman spectroscopy/microscopy), wherein the switching time for switching between different wavelengths should be in the sub-?s range. For this purpose the apparatus according to the invention comprises a pump laser (1), which emits pulsed laser radiation at a specified wavelength, an FDML laser (3), which emits continuous wave laser radiation at a cyclically variable wavelength, and a nonlinear conversion medium (4), in which the pulsed laser radiation of the pump laser (1) and the continuous wave laser radiation of the FDML laser (3) are superposed.

  • Publication number: 20210081633
    Abstract: Method for examining a multiplicity of distributed objects (1) by using an overview image (200) of the area (2) in which the objects (1) are distributed, wherein the overview image (200) is converted (110) into a binary image (210) by virtue of the intensity values (202) of the pixels (201) of the overview image (200) being classified (202a, 202b) as to whether they are on the near or far side of a prescribed threshold (208); the binary image (210) is cleared (120) of structures (219) that are smaller than the objects (1), so that a cleared image (220) is produced; and the cleared image (220) is morphologically closed (130), so that a binary object mask (230) is produced that indicates which locations in the area (2) belong to objects (1) and which locations in the area (2) do not belong to an object.

  • Publication number: 20200383577
    Abstract: Exemplary apparatus, device, system and method can be provided for examining a sample, which can comprising and/or utilize an imaging device for obtaining an overview image of the sample. A measuring instrument can also be used for locally interrogating at least one property of the sample with a laser beam which emerges from an aperture. Additionally, a tracking arrangement/system/device can be utilized for determining the location on the sample which is currently being interrogated with the laser beam. Additionally, memory or any other electronic storage device can be utilized, in which the property interrogated with the laser beam can be associated with the determined location on the sample.

  • Patent number: 10769782
    Abstract: Exemplary method, computer-accessible medium and system can be provided for determining the presence or absence of a local and/or global property of a biological tissue sample. Thus, it is possible to obtain at least one image of the sample, search the image(s) for a presence of at least one particular feature that is contained in a pre-defined set of features, and assign, to the particular feature(s). It is possible to compute, with a computer processor, at least one discriminant value that is a function of the pronunciation index that is weighted with a particular weight. The weight of each pronunciation index is a measure for a relevance of the corresponding feature with respect to the property. It is possible to determine whether the property is present in at least one part of the biological tissue sample depending on whether the discriminant value exceeds a pre-defined threshold and/or and optimized threshold.

  • Publication number: 20130301044
    Abstract: The invention relates to a device (100) for identifying biotic particles in a medium to be analyzed, comprising a measuring cell (104), through which the medium to be analyzed can flow and in which the identification of the biotic particles is carried out by means of Raman spectroscopy, and a feed (102) by means of which the medium to be analyzed can be fed to the measuring cell (104). The device (100) according to the invention is characterized in that the feed (102) comprises at least one sensor (101) with which the presence of biotic particles in the medium flowing through the feed (102) can be ascertained. The feed (102) has a controllable bypass valve (103) downstream of the sensor (101), and the medium can be selectively fed to the measuring cell (104) or to a bypass channel (106) via said bypass valve.

  • Publication number: 20110165558
    Abstract: Individual viruses in any type of sample are identified quickly, unambiguously and reliably, and with the least possible preparation-related and technology-related expenditure, without necessitating immobilization using antibodies and without requiring an indication or at least a suspicion of potentially present viruses. This is accomplished by scanning the height profile of the sample, from which scanning sites suspected of containing viruses are selected, exposing those cites to monochromatic excitation light and spectroscopically analyzing the resulting Raman scattered light.

  • Patent number: 6841604
    Abstract: A polyester with a carbon black content of up to 20% by weight, based on the polyester, is condensed, after transesterification of DMT with diol, or after esterification of terephthalic acid with diol, with the aid of a titanium-based catalyst. The carbon black is added in the form of a carbon black dispersion together with the polycondensation catalyst to the transesterification product or esterification product. The carbon black dispersion comprises gas black or furnace black and a dispersing agent, and these are dispersed in diol. The diameter of the carbon black particles is below that of carbon black particles in a polyester using an antimony compound as catalyst.
