  • Publication number: 20210278328
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides various embodiments of a fluorescence scanning system having a sample holder with a sample suspended within that is rotated by a centrifuge such that the sample is illuminated at various angles by an excitation beam by operation of a galvanometer and such that the sample emits a fluorescence emissions that is detected through a narrow window of exposure defined along the travel path of rotation taken by the sample holder when rotated by the centrifuge. A stationary fluorescence detector is in operative communication with the sample holder along the narrow window of exposure for detecting the fluorescence emissions emitted by the sample from the sample holder while also separating the excitation beam from the fluorescence emissions.

  • Patent number: 8311742
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for accurately estimating plasma velocities on the photosphere based on magnetic field data from vector magnetograms. Spatial and temporal derivatives of the magnetic field components are computed and a structure tensor containing terms that specifically include the horizontal magnetic field components is constructed. The structure tensor is convolved with a window function and a least-squares solution based on the convolved structure tensor is found. The solution includes the plasma velocities in the horizontal and vertical directions at the center of the window.
