In this work, we present a new structure to realize optical logic operation in a Sagnac interferometer with electro-optical modulation. In the scheme, we divide two counterpropagation signals in a Sagnac loop to two different arms with the electro-optical crystal by using two circulators. Lithium niobate materials whose electro-optical coefficient can be as(More)
A CW dual-frequency master oscillator power amplifier (MOPA) laser system with dozens of gigahertz (GHz) frequency separation is presented. The MOPA system consists of a monolithic microchip seed laser and a double-end pumped traveling wave power amplifier. The short length of seed laser cavity guarantees the seed signal with a large frequency separation(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the surgical outcomes of hybrid total arch repair without deep hypothermic circulatory arrest for patients with acute Stanford type A aortic dissection. METHODS Retrospective review of clinical data of patients with acute Stanford type A aortic dissection who underwent surgical repair at our institution between November 2009 and(More)
A continuous-wave microchip dual-frequency laser (DFL) with well balanced intensity was presented. In order to obtain such a balanced intensity distribution of the two frequency components, the DFL wavelengths were precisely tuned and spectrally matched with the emission cross section (ECS) spectrum of the gain medium by employing a temperature controller.(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the safety and effectiveness of autotransfusion of shed mediastinal blood after open heart surgery. METHODS Sixty patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) were selected randomly to receive either nonwashed shed mediastinal blood (Group 1, n = 30) or banked blood (Group 2, n = 30). Drainage and transfusion volume(More)
We demonstrate a novel (to our knowledge) method for high sensitivity measurement of pulsed light at the telecommunication wavelength of 1558 nm using a GaAsP photomultiplier tube. By modulating the input power and analyzing the harmonic components, high sensitivity third-order autocorrelation is obtained in the wavelength and power regimes where a mixture(More)
The channel characteristics of modulating retro-reflector (MRR) free-space optical (FSO) link are studied by using wave-optics (WO) simulation method. The optical wave launched from the transceiver is reflected back in the same direction to the transceiver by the use of cube-corner reflector (CCR). This propagation process is divided into three parts:(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the efficacy and safety of recombinant human brain natriuretic peptide (rhBNP) in the patients with severe heart failure (HF). METHODS A prospective multicenter study was conducted. Patients whose age > 18 years old, and with the New York Heart Association (NYHA) cardiac function grade over III-IV, acute cardiac insufficiency and the(More)
A mid-infrared fiber optical parametric oscillator is proposed and designed based on a three-hole As(2)S(5) suspended-core fiber (SCF). The eigenmodes of the SCF are depicted and the pump condition for single-mode operation is analyzed. The zero-dispersion wavelength is shifted to 2 μm by tuning the core diameter of the SCF. Using the degenerate four-wave(More)
