Double-stranded salmon DNA (SDNA) was doped with doxorubicin hydrochloride drug molecules (DOX) to determine the binding between DOX and SDNA, and DOX optimum doping concentration in SDNA. SDNA thin films were prepared with various concentrations of DOX by drop-casting on oxygen plasma treated glass and quartz substrates. Fourier transform infrared (FTIR)(More)
A new extraordinary application of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) thin-solid-film was experimentally explored in the field of ultrafast nonlinear photonics. Optical transmission was investigated in both linear and nonlinear regimes for two types of DNA thin-solid-films made from DNA in aqueous solution and DNA-cetyltrimethylammonium chloride (CTMA) in an(More)
We report a new efficient light guidance along a liquid core using an open V-groove. Guiding properties were analyzed using finite element method in terms of the single mode guidance condition, and the corresponding modal birefringence. We experimentally demonstrated a silica V-groove fiber with an opening angle of 40°, which was spliced to single mode(More)
5'-0-(Dimethoxytrityl)-2'-0-(benzoyl or 3,4,5-trimethoxybenzoyl)-base protected ribonucleosides have been prepared by selective benzoylation of the 2'-hydroxyl group. The isomerization of the 2'-benzoates to the 3'-benzoates was studied. The protected ribonucleosides have been converted to either methylphosphochloridites or methylphosphoamidites and used to(More)
A defectless hexagonal air-silica photonic crystal fiber (PCF) structure with its central hole selectively filled by a low-refractive-index liquid is numerically analyzed. Despite the fact that the refractive index of the liquid is significantly lower than that of silica, we found an optimal range of waveguide parameters to ensure light guidance through the(More)
