The identification of the state of human peripheral vascular tissue by using artificial neural networks is discussed in this paper. Two different laser emission lines (He-Cd, Ar+) are used to excite the chromophores of tissue samples. The fluorescence spectrum obtained, is passed through a nonlinear filter based on a high-order (HO) neural network neural(More)
Elucidation of the molecular mechanisms regulating lipid storage and metabolism is essential for mitigating excess adiposity and obesity, which has been associated with increased prevalence of severe pathological conditions such as cardiovascular disorders and type II diabetes, worldwide. However, imaging fatty acid distribution and dynamics in vivo, at the(More)
We present a portable ultrafast Semiconductor Disk Laser (SDL) (or vertical extended cavity surface emitting laser-VECSELs), to be used for nonlinear microscopy. The SDL is modelocked using a quantum-dot semiconductor saturable absorber mirror (SESAM), delivering an average output power of 287 mW, with 1.5 ps pulses at 500 MHz and a central wavelength of(More)
In this study, third-harmonic generation (THG) imaging measurements were performed to characterize different developmental stages of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans) embryos. Femtosecond laser pulses (1028 nm) were utilized for excitation. THG image contrast modality proved as a powerful diagnostic tool, providing valuable information and(More)
In this paper we provide, for the first time to our knowledge, the effective orientation of the SHG source in cultured cortical neuronal processes in vitro. This is done by the use of the polarization sensitive second harmonic generation (PSHG) imaging microscopy technique. By performing a pixel-level resolution analysis we found that the SHG dipole source(More)
