Active involvement of micro-lipid droplets and lipid-droplet-associated proteins in hormone-stimulated lipolysis in adipocytes
TLDR
Results suggest that, besides on the surface of pre-existing central LDs, LD-associated proteins are actively involved in lipolysis on mLDs that are formed by FA re-esterification, which may be an attractive therapeutic target against lipid-associated metabolic diseases. Expand
Quantitative coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) microscopy.
TLDR
The complicating influence of the nonresonant response on the CARS signal and the various experimental and mathematical approaches that can be adopted to extract quantitative information from CARS are discussed. Expand
In-vivo multi-nonlinear optical imaging of a living cell using a supercontinuum light source generated from a photonic crystal fiber.
A supercontinuum light source generated with a femtosecond Ti:Sapphire oscillator has been used to obtain both vibrational and two-photon excitation fluorescence (TPEF) images of a living cellExpand
Femtosecond coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering spectroscopy using supercontinuum generated from a photonic crystal fiber
Femtosecond time-resolved coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) spectroscopy is demonstrated using a Ti:Sapphire oscillator and a photonic crystal fiber. A spectrally dispersed CARS signal ofExpand
Quantitative CARS molecular fingerprinting of single living cells with the use of the maximum entropy method.
TLDR
The authors thank C. Onogi for providing the spontaneous Raman spectrum of yeast mitochondria, Leukos and Horus Laser companies for technical support, and Dr. Yomo (Suntory Co., Ltd.) for providing us with the yeast sample. Expand
Time-resolved fluorescence and absorption spectroscopies of porphyrin J-aggregates
Dynamics of excited states in porphyrin J-aggregates has been investigated using femtosecond time-resolved fluorescence and absorption spectroscopies. An ultrafast relaxation process due to internalExpand
Ultrabroadband multiplex CARS microspectroscopy and imaging using a subnanosecond supercontinuum light source in the deep near infrared.
TLDR
The ultrabroadband subnanosecond supercontinuum has facilitated multiplex coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) microspectroscopy in the spectral range from 1,000 to 3,000 cm(-1) with lateral and depth spatial resolution of 0.9 and 4.6 microm, respectively. Expand
Mechanism of co-aggregation in a protein mixture with small additives.
Co-aggregation plays an important role in processing protein-rich food materials under heterogeneous conditions. The main cause of co-aggregation is an electrostatic attraction between oppositelyExpand
Characterization of a supercontinuum generated from a photonic crystal fiber and its application to coherent Raman spectroscopy.
TLDR
The temporal and spectral profiles of supercontinuum radiation generated from a photonic crystal fiber are evaluated with a polarization-gate frequency-resolved optical gating technique and a stimulated Raman signal of cyclohexane is observed as an induced absorption signal with an instantaneous response.

Ultrabroadband (>2000 cm-1) multiplex coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering spectroscopy using a subnanosecond supercontinuum light source.
TLDR
This work has developed ultrabroadband (>2000 cm(-1)) multiplex coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) spectroscopy using a subnanosecond (sub-ns) microchip laser source and has successfully obtained multiplex CARS spectra for several molecular liquids. Expand
