Unambiguous simultaneous measurement of strain and temperature based on dual long-period fiber gratings by controlling their thermal and strain sensitivities is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. The difference in the wavelength peak shift and the separation with the variation of strain and temperature allows discrimination between the strain and(More)
A novel light source of erbium-fiber ASE-seeded, depolarized, incoherent, CW supercontinuum is proposed for optical coherence tomography imaging. The OCT system using the ∼110-nm bandwidth light source is experimentally demonstrated to enable high quality imaging of human tooth tissues.
Tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV) is one of the most well-known tomato-infecting begomoviruses and transmitted by Bemisia tabaci. Seed transmission has previously been reported for some RNA viruses, but TYLCV has not previously been described as a seed-borne virus. In 2013 and 2014, without whitefly-mediated transmission, TYLCV was detected in young(More)
In this study, we develop an ultra-fast fiber Bragg grating sensor system that is based on the Fourier domain mode-locked (FDML) swept laser. A FDML wavelength swept laser has many advantages compared to the conventional wavelength swept laser source, such as high-speed interrogation, narrow spectral sensitivity, and high phase stability. The newly(More)
A multiwavelength switching laser is demonstrated by a precise and fast tuning of a composite Lyot-Sagnac comb filter based on multisegment polarization-maintaining fibers. Broadband multiwavelength output is generated by cascaded Raman Stokes waves between 1.12 and 1.58 microns in a fiber-ring cavity with a wave-division-multiplexed coupler. Theoretical(More)
A novel linearized interrogation method is presented for a Fourier domain mode-locked (FDML) fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor system. In a high speed regime over several tens of kHz modulations, a sinusoidal wave is available to scan the center wavelength of an FDML wavelength-swept laser, instead of a conventional triangular wave. However, sinusoidal wave(More)
Parasitemia characteristics of Plasmodium vivax malaria in temperate regions may differ from those in tropical zones. However, most parasitological and clinical features of P. vivax malaria have been investigated in the latter. In this study, we investigated 383 malaria patients to clarify the parasitemia characteristics of a P. vivax strain in the Republic(More)
A simple configuration for simultaneous measurement of temperature and strain exploiting a temperature-insensitive birefringent interferometer based on a photonic crystal fiber incorporating an erbium-doped fiber (EDF) is investigated. The transmission peak power of the birefringent interferometer incorporating the EDF is changed by the temperature(More)
Secretory leukocyte protease inhibitor (SLPI) protects tissue from proteases, and promotes cell proliferation and healing during inflammatory response. SLPI is also overexpressed in gastric, lung and ovarian cancers, which accelerates the metastasis of cancer cells. Matrix metalloproteinases-2, -9 (MMP-2 and MMP-9) are overexpressed in high metastatic(More)
The complete genome sequence of a new virus isolated from a motherwort plant exhibiting yellow mottle, mild mosaic, and stunting symptoms in Andong, Korea, was determined. The genome of this virus is composed of two single-stranded RNAs (7068 and 4963 nucleotides in length, respectively) carrying poly(A) tails. RNA1 contains one large open reading frame(More)
