11. Characterization of Ring Resonator Structures for Applications in Photonic Thermometry
Topic: Bioscience & Health
Published: 7/1/2015
Authors: Nikolai Nikolayevich Klimov, Michaela Berger, Zeeshan Ahmed
Abstract: In recent years silicon photonics has emerged as a powerful enabling technology that is being harnessed to devleop novel, highly sensitive sensing solutions to address problems in environmental and human health related mointoring. Here we have system ...

12. Fabry-Perrot cavity-based silicon photonic thermometers with ultra-small footprint and high-sensitivity
Topic: Bioscience & Health
Published: 7/1/2015
Authors: Nikolai Nikolayevich Klimov, Thomas P Purdy, Zeeshan Ahmed
Abstract: In this work we report on the development of silicon photonic temperature sensors with ultra-small foot print and high temperature sensitivity as an alternative solution to legacy-based resistance thermometers.

13. Si3N4 nanobeam optomechanical crystals
Topic: Bioscience & Health
Published: 7/1/2015
Authors: Karen E Grutter, Marcelo Ishihara Davanco, Kartik A Srinivasan

14. Fabrication and Characterization of On-Chip Integrated Silicon Photonic Bragg Grating and Photonic Crystal Cavity Thermometers
Topic: Bioscience & Health
Published: 6/30/2015
Authors: Nikolai Nikolayevich Klimov, Thomas P Purdy, Zeeshan Ahmed
Abstract: We report on the fabrication and characterization of photonic-based nanothermometers, a silicon photonic Bragg grating and photonic crystal cavity. When cladded with silicon dioxide layer the sensors have at least eight times better sensitivity comp ...

15. Performance of a next generation sequencing SNP assay on degraded DNA
Topic: Bioscience & Health
Published: 5/27/2015
Authors: Katherine B Gettings, Kevin M Kiesler, Peter M Vallone
Abstract: Forensic DNA casework samples are often of insufficient quantity or quality to generate full profiles by conventional DNA typing methods. Amplification of STR loci is inherently limited in samples containing degraded DNA, as the cumulative size ...

16. On-Chip Silicon Photonic Thermometers: from Waveguide Bragg Grating to Ring Resonators sensors
Topic: Bioscience & Health
Published: 5/13/2015
Authors: Nikolai Nikolayevich Klimov, Thomas P Purdy, Zeeshan Ahmed
Abstract: Fundamental limitations of resistance thermometry, as well as the desire to reduce sensor ownership cost has led to considerable interest in the development of photonic temperature sensors as an alternative to resistance thermometers. These innovativ ...

17. Validated Open Source Nanofiber Diameter Measurement Tool
Topic: Bioscience & Health
Published: 4/30/2015
Authors: Nathan A Hotaling, Kapil Bharti, Haydn Kriel, Carl George Simon Jr.
Abstract: Despite the growing use of nanofiber scaffolds for tissue engineering applications, there is not a validated, readily available (commercial or open source) solution for rapid, automated analysis of nanofiber diameter from scanning electron microscope ...

18. Bioreactor Process Parameter Screening Utilizing a Plackett-Burman Design for a Model Monoclonal Antibody
Topic: Bioscience & Health
Published: 3/11/2015
Authors: John E Schiel, Cyrus D Agarabi, Scott C. Lute, Brittany K. Chavez, Michael T Boyne, Kurt A. Brorson, Mansoor A Kahn, Erik K Read
Abstract: Consistent high quality antibody yield is a key goal for cell culture bioprocessing. This endpoint is typically achieved in commercial settings through product and process engineering of bioreactor parameters during development. When the proces ...

19. Proceedings of SPIE
Topic: Bioscience & Health
Published: 3/4/2015
Authors: Maritoni Abatayo Litorja, Aaron A Urbas, Yuqin Zong
Abstract: The fluorescent light detected by a clinical imager is assumed to be proportional to the amount of fluorescent substance present in the sample. Unfortunately, there are many factors that can add or subtract to the light signal directly attributable ...

20. Evaluation of Low-Contrast Detectability of Iterative Reconstruction across Multiple Institutions, CT Scanner Manufacturers, and Radiation Exposure Levels
Topic: Bioscience & Health
Published: 2/19/2015
Authors: Adele P Peskin, Ganesh Saiprasad, James J Filliben, Alden A Dima
Abstract: Purpose: To evaluate the impact of Iterative Reconstruction (IR) compared with Filtered Back Projection (FBP) using low-contrast objects in phantom images across vendors and exposure levels. Materials and Methods: Randomized repeat scans of the Gamm ...
