Ming-Chi Chen Investigating opioid-modulated cellular localization of μ-opioid and nociceptin receptors by two-photon fluorescence microscopy
Ming-Chi Chen, China Medical University, Taiwan (Taiwan); Cynthia Wei-Sheng Lee, China Medical University Hospital (Taiwan), China Medical University (Taiwan); Guan-Yu Zhuo, China Medical University, Taiwan (Taiwan)

We explored the cellular localization of μ-opioid (MOP) and nociceptin/orphanin FQ (NOP) receptors regulated by opioids. We overexpressed the fluorescence-tagged receptors (MOP-CFP & NOP-YFP) via transfecting HEK 293 cells transiently and then measured the variations of fluorescent signals in single-particle tracking (SPT) and fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) by two-photon fluorescence microscopy. The results could be helpful in unraveling the cellular signaling after these receptors are stimulated by opioids.

Jyun-Ping Kao, Chu-Qiao Yu, Wei-Zhong Lin, Bo-Hsien Pan, Je-Chi Jang, Tien-Ching Tsai, Shih-Hsuan Chia, National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University (Taiwan)

We have investigated the optical system design to realize nonlinear mesoscope for optical virtual biopsy. For simplifying the system and realizing image stitching, we generalize the relay lenses system while maintaining a satisfactory two-photon uniformity of 95% at a scanning angle ±7°. We obtain a stitched leaf image at sub-micron resolution with the field of view of 1.8×1.8mm2, without moving the sample. We also integrate the system into a portable setup, including the delivery of femtosecond pulses with manageable nonlinear spectral conversions. We will discuss the feasibility of our system for ex vivo skin observation in the presentation.

Po-Yeh Lin Fabrication of biodegradable films using L-lactate as a chiral material to produce circularly polarized light
Po-Yeh Lin, Taipei Medical University (Taiwan); Chien-Ming Chen, National Taipei Uniersity of Technology (Taiwan); Jen-Ai Lee, Taipei Medical University (Taiwan); Yu-Chia Cheng, National Taipei Uniersity of Technology (Taiwan)

Optical activity related to molecular chirality are significant in the circular dichroism characteristics to determine the configuration of a chiral molecule. We used L-lactic acid (L-LA) and a transparent glue to produce biodegradable films. Adjusting the number of layers comprising L-LA and glue leads to different phase differences, forming L-LA films. Six layers and 0.8% L-LA solution were the optimal conditions to fabricate an film. The circular-polarization experiment showed that the change in the signal intensity was less than 2% at a specific angle of the L-LA film. In summary, circularly polarized light was successfully produced using the L-LA film.

Ming-Zhi Lin, Shang-Ping Ying, Minghsin University of Science & Technology (Taiwan)

In this study, the nondestructive blood glucose concentration evaluation of human using near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy measurement is performed. To perform a quantitative analysis, the high power IR LEDs with wavelengths of 850 and 940 nm are used in NIR reflection spectroscopy measurement. Then the calibration model is investigated to predict the blood glucose concentration of the participants from the NIR reflection measurements alone.

Cheng-Yeh Wu Development, Miniaturization, and Clinical Verification of Optical Transcutaneous Bilirubinometer
Cheng-Yeh Wu, Bing-Hsuan Sung, Sheng-Hao Tseng, National Cheng Kung University (Taiwan)

Jaundice is a phenomenon of high serum bilirubin concentration. The prevalence of neonatal jaundice can reach 80% and 21%. The gold standard is still the concentration of bilirubin in blood samples. However, this method cannot be used for continuous bilirubin level monitoring. Also, drawing blood from newborns can be difficult. Traditional bilirubin meters are too expensive and are affected by skin tone. Our team has developed a handheld DRS device for non-invasive screening and monitoring of neonatal bilirubin.

Chang-An Shih Development of Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging Engine based on FPGA
Chang-An Shih, Ting-Hao Tsai, Chuan-Bor Chueh, Ting-Hao Chen, Hsiang-Chieh Lee, National Taiwan University (Taiwan)

Currently, optical coherence tomography (OCT) system requires a high-performance desktop which increases the system cost and complexity. In this study, we proposed an OCT system based on a field programmable gate array (FPGA) to replace the high-performance desktop in conventional OCT systems. As a preliminary study, we used an evaluation FPGA board to validate its feasibility to be implemented in the processing framework we have developed using the spectral-domain OCT system. The preliminary results including system framework and comparison of the processing performance with respect to conventional OCT system will be provided as well.

Wei-Hsun Wang Changes in the molecular structure of gamma irradiated starches investigated by polarization-resolved second harmonic generation microscopy
Wei-Hsun Wang, Ming-Chi Chen, China Medical University,Taiwan (Taiwan); Nirmal Mazumder, Manipal School of Life Sciences, Manipal Academy of Higher Education (India); Guan-Yu Zhuo, China Medical University,Taiwan (Taiwan)

We present on using polarization-resolved second harmonic generation (P-SHG) microscopy to study changes in the molecular structure of starch granules modified by gamma irradiation. With the characteristic of SHG polarization anisotropy, we extracted the second-order susceptibility, χ(2), tensor of amylopectin, which reflects the underlying molecular details. Then P-SHG microscopy in conjunction with SHG-circular dichroism (CD) were used to identify the inherent chirality of starches and their reaction to different dosages of gamma irradiation. For the first time, the relationship between starch achirality (χ21/χ16 and χ22/χ16) and chirality (χ14/χ16) determining susceptibility tensor ratios have been elucidated.

Zhi-Wei Xu 3D Tissue Fibrosis Inspection with Multiphoton Microscopy
Zhi-Wei Xu, Jui-Chi Chang, Chia-Yuan Chang, National Cheng Kung University (Taiwan)

Multiphoton excited fluorescence microscopy provides a great spatial excitation resolution for 3D image reconstruction in sub-micron resolution, and is suitable for biological imaging in vivo. We demonstrate a self-built scanning-based MPEFM system. The system lateral resolution is around 0.7 μm and axial resolution is 2.2 μm respectively. We have shown the large scale imaging ability by synchronization with the 3-axis mechanical stage, laser scanning, and fluorescence signal acquisition. The full size of mouse pulmonary fibrosis tissue is successfully reconstructed in high contrast. The experiment result shows the proposed MPEFM system yields a great feasibility for noninvasive biological imaging and analysis.

Keng-Yang Li Mechanical properties of the mice skin using polarization imaging
Keng-Yang Li, Cheng-Chieh Line, Szu-Yu Chen, National Central University (Taiwan)

As early as mid-19th century, artificial mechanics was proved to change cellular morphology and gene expression. Recent research shows that telogen elongation of mice skin under appropriate tension can stimulate the regeneration of hair follicle. To measure the skin tension required for regeneration, in this study, we used Mueller Matrix polarimetry to record the mouse skin image, while the mouse skin was gradually stretched in eight days. Combining the traditional skin tension measurement via spring and neural network model, the relationship between skin polarization properties and tension was found out. That provides a non-contacting method to measure the skin tension.

Zhen-Hao Fang, Keng-Yang Li, National Central University (Taiwan); Hwan-Ching Tai, National Taiwan University (Taiwan); Szu-Yu Chen, Wei-Ting Lai, National Central University (Taiwan)

Spruce is the commonly-used tonewood for violin-family instruments. It’s been shown chemical treatment and aging can cause property changes of wood and affect the acoustic properties of instruments. To reveal the spectral and spatial properties of woods, which abundantly contain lignin and cellulose, two-photon hyperspectral microscopy has been introduced. Through the hyperspectral data containing two-photon fluorescence and second-harmonic generation (SHG) information, the spatial content variations of different lignin fluorescent bases and SHG can be obtained microscopically. Comparing woods without process and with aging, heating, and chemical treatments, the effects of different processes have been reveal through the spectral variations.
