As the bit rates of routed data streams exceed the throughput of single wavelength-division multiplexing channels, spectral and spatial traffic aggregation become essential for optical network scaling. These aggregation techniques reduce network routing complexity by increasing spectral efficiency to decrease the number of fibers, and by increasing(More)
We tested the hypothesis that methylmercury chloride (MMC) caused a selective vulnerability in rat retinal cells during the intact preparation. MMC was injected subcutaneously daily at 3 different doses (0.25, 0.70 or 1.50 mg/kg/day) for 30 days. The electroretinograms under dark- and light-adaptation were recorded before and at 10-day intervals during the(More)
This paper describes optical frequency comb generation using optical single-sideband modulation technique. We can obtain optical frequency shift using the singnal-sideband modulator consisting of four optical phase modulators, where the frequency shift is precisely equal to that of an rf-signal fed to the modulator. A series of optical spectral components(More)
OBJECTIVE We evaluated the effect of pretreatment with nitric oxide precursor before ischemia on recovery with reperfusion in rat hearts. METHODS Isolated rat hearts were perfused with Krebs-Henseleit buffer without (C group) or with 3 mmol/L L-arginine (A group) before 30 minutes of ischemia. The left ventricular function, including heart rate, developed(More)
A platform for the realization of tightly-confined lithium niobate photonic devices and circuits on silicon substrates is reported based on wafer bonding and selective oxidation of refractory metals. The heterogeneous photonic platform is employed to demonstrate high-performance lithium niobate microring optical resonators and Mach-Zehnder optical(More)
Diplopia, a common symptom in spinocerebellar ataxia 3/Machado-Joseph disease (SCA3/MJD) cases, is not always due to asymmetric ophthalmoplegia. We found a Japanese SCA3/MJD family, in which three patients clearly had an impairment of divergence eye movement. We thus quantitatively examined the vergence ranges in eight Japanese SCA3/MJD cases using the(More)
Efficient generation and detection of indistinguishable twin photons are at the core of quantum information and communications technology (Q-ICT). These photons are conventionally generated by spontaneous parametric down conversion (SPDC), which is a probabilistic process, and hence occurs at a limited rate, which restricts wider applications of Q-ICT.
