  • Publication number: 20160238532
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides systems and methods for performing multi-photon imaging using a fiber laser. Systems and methods herein may be used for performing imaging using multi-photon excitation (e.g., using two-photon excitation or multi-color two-photon excited fluorescence). Aspects of the disclosure are applicable to a variety of multi-photon methods without being limited to CRS or multi-photon fluorescence excitation. A multi-wavelength fiber laser system and its use in multi-photon methods are provided.

  • Publication number: 20160178439
    Abstract: Systems and methods employing Coherent Raman Scattering (CRS), e.g., Coherent anti-Stokes Raman Spectroscopy (CARS) and/or Stimulated Raman Scattering (SRS) are provided. Systems and methods for performing flow cytometry, imaging and sensing using low-resolution CRS are also provided.

  • Patent number: 7817840
    Abstract: Cell based assays are used to assess the hepatotoxicity of a stimulus. Imaging technologies are used to analyze the effects of a stimulus on hepatocytes. Image analysis may characterize the stimulus on the basis of whether it is hepatotoxic, and if so what type of pathology is exhibited; e.g., apoptosis, necrosis, cholestasis, and/or steatosis.

  • Patent number: 5811796
    Abstract: An optical probe microscope includes an optical fiber oriented in a vertical direction. The fiber has a tip that emits light onto a horizontal surface of a sample to be measured. This surface can have both desired and undesired departures from planarity. An electromechanical device for imparting dither motion to the fiber tip is superposed on another electromechanical device for imparting two-dimensional horizontal scanning motion to the fiber tip. The dither motion has a much higher frequency than that of the scanning motion. Between successive scannings, another device moves the sample itself from one horizontal position to another. A microscope receives the optical radiation either transmitted or reflected by the sample surface. The microscope forms a (magnified) image of this received optical radiation on the surface of an optical image position detector. The surface of this detector has a relatively large area compared with that of the (magnified) image.

  • Patent number: 5656182
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a process for device fabrication in which a spatially resolved latent image of latent features in an energy sensitive resist material is used to control process parameters. In the present process, an energy sensitive resist material is exposed to radiation using a patternwise or blanket exposure. An image of the latent effects of the exposure is obtained using a near-field imaging technique. This image of the latent effects of the exposure is used to control parameters of the lithographic process such as focus, lamp intensity, exposure dose, exposure time, and post exposure baking by comparing the image so obtained with the desired effects of the exposure and adjusting the relevant lithographic parameter to obtain the desired correlation between the image obtained and the desired effect.
