—We study the problem of optimally adapting ongoing cloud gaming sessions to maximize the gamer experience in dynamic environments. The considered problem is quite challenging because: (i) gamer experience is subjective and hard to quantify, (ii) the existing open-source cloud gaming platform does not support dynamic reconfigurations of video codecs, and(More)
Optical higher harmonic generation, including second harmonic generation and third harmonic generation, leaves no energy deposition to its interacted matters due to an energy-conservation characteristic, providing the "noninvasiveness" nature desirable for biological studies. Combined with its nonlinearity, higher harmonic generation microscopy provides(More)
BACKGROUND Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is effective for treating Barrett's esophagus (BE) but often involves multiple endoscopy sessions over several months to achieve complete response. OBJECTIVE Identify structural markers that correlate with treatment response by using 3-dimensional (3-D) optical coherence tomography (OCT; 3-D OCT). DESIGN(More)
—A 1.2-to 2.2-m tunable femtosecond light source based on the soliton-self-frequency-shift effect of high-power Cr : forsterite laser pulses propagating inside a highly nonlinear photonic crystal fiber is reported. The demonstrated soliton self-frequency shift is higher than 42% of the pump laser frequency , corresponding to a record 910-nm wavelength(More)
We developed a compact, optical fiber scanning piezoelectric transducer (PZT) probe for endoscopic and minimally invasive optical coherence tomography (OCT). Compared with previous forward-mount fiber designs, we present a reverse-mount design that achieves a shorter rigid length. The fiber was mounted at the proximal end of a quadruple PZT tube and scanned(More)
In this article, we study the efficiency problem of video stream near-duplicate monitoring in a large-scale repository. Existing stream monitoring methods are mainly designed for a short video to scan over a query stream; they have difficulty being scalable for a large number of long videos. We present a simple but effective algorithm called incremental(More)
Three-dimensional (3D) endomicroscopy imaging of the human gastrointestinal tract is demonstrated in vivo using a swept source optical coherence tomography (OCT) system. 3D datasets of normal and pathologic regions of the colon, rectum, and anal verge were obtained from seven volunteers undergoing diagnostic or therapeutic colonoscopy. 3D-OCT enables high(More)
Endoscopic argon plasma coagulation and bipolar electrocautery are currently preferred treatments for chronic radiation proctitis, but ulcerations and strictures frequently occur. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) has been successful for mucosal ablation in the esophagus. Here we report the efficacy of RFA with the BarRx Halo(90) system in three patients with(More)
Morphological changes and complex developmental processes inside vertebrate embryos are difficult to observe noninvasively with millimeter-penetration and sub-micrometer-resolution at the same time. By using higher harmonic generation, including second and third harmonics, as the microscopic contrast mechanism, optical noninvasiveness can be achieved due to(More)
