We have developed a parallel algorithm for microdigital-holographic particle-tracking velocimetry. The algorithm is used in (1) numerical reconstruction of a particle image computer using a digital hologram, and (2) searching for particles. The numerical reconstruction from the digital hologram makes use of the Fresnel diffraction equation and the FFT (fast(More)
We have been performing PDT using Excimer Dye Laser (EDL) or YAG-OPO laser, a type of low power laser, both of which have a considerably higher degree of tissue penetration even when compared to PDT using Argon Dye Laser (ADL).PDT is a relatively simple procedure without any bleeding and does not require anesthesia since it causes no pain. PDT is performed(More)
A micro-digital holographic particle tracking velocimetry with high-speed system is constructed by a PC grid environment that employs Windows XP with AD-POWERs as parallel tool. Two algorithms for high-speed system are evaluated under the same PC grid environment. Both methods are based on a computer-generated hologram algorithm. One method is a division(More)
In 1985, there were approximately 427 million persons aged 60 and over in the world, accounting for about 9% of the world's population. By 2020, the elderly population will comprise 13% of the world's population and 70% of these people will live in developing countries. Governments and international agencies should increase their efforts and activities to(More)
We have designed a special purpose computer system for digital holographic particle tracking velocimetry (DHPTV). We present the pipeline for calculating the intensity of an object from a hologram by fast Fourier transform in an FPGA chip. This system uses four FPGA chips and can make 100 reconstructed images from a 256x256-grid hologram in 266 msec. It is(More)
We have designed a special purpose computer system for visualizing fluid flow using digital holographic particle tracking velocimetry (DHPTV). This computer contains an Field Programmble Gate Array (FPGA) chip in which a pipeline for calculating the intensity of an object from a hologram by fast Fourier transform is installed. This system can produce 100(More)
