As participation in sports has increased, so have anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructions. The procedure is commonly associated with inaccurate tunnel placements, even when performed by experienced surgeons. Computer-assisted surgery may assist in eliminating inconsistent graft tunnels by increasing precision and providing navigation feedback of(More)
A power scalable thulium-doped fiber-amplifier-based supercontinuum (SC) laser covering the shortwave infrared region from 2 to 2.5 μm is demonstrated. The SC laser has an average power up to 25.7 W and a spectral density of >12 dBm/nm. Power scalability of the laser is proven by showing that the SC laser maintains a nearly constant spectral output, beam(More)
Field trial results of a 5 W all-fiber broadband supercontinuum (SC) laser covering the short-wave infrared (SWIR) wavelength bands from ~1.55 to 2.35 μm are presented. The SC laser is kept on a 12 story tower at the Wright Patterson Air Force Base and propagated through the atmosphere to a target 1.6 km away. Beam quality of the SC laser after propagating(More)
This study examined how individuals with and without neck pain performed exercises under the influence of altered visual feedback in virtual reality. Chronic neck pain (n = 9) and asymptomatic (n = 10) individuals were recruited for this cross-sectional study. Participants performed head rotations while receiving programmatically manipulated(More)
Field tests have been conducted of a broadband illuminator for active hyperspectral imaging (HSI) using a short-wave infrared supercontinuum laser (SWIR-SCL). We demonstrated irradiance comparable to the sun for two-way measurements at a 1.4 km distance between laser and target, and performed change detection and ranging. The experimental results suggest(More)
We have been investigating the use of supercontinuum (SC) laser technology to provide active illumination for shortwave infrared (SWIR) hyperspectral sensors in order to extend their operational window into the night and heavy overcast periods. Unlike a lamp, light from a broadband laser illuminator (BLI) can propagate long distances through the atmosphere(More)
We have analyzed the distribution of glucosamine-labeled polymers on the cell surface, in the growth medium, and inside the cell and the net turnover of these polymers during the process of malignant transformation of chick embryo fibroblasts by Rous sarcoma virus. The distribu tion of label and the turnover kinetics for hyaluronic acid, total(More)
