- Julien Gravier added an answer:6Non luminescent particles in the batch and accounting for them in bioimaging?
In case of fluorescent nanocrystals not all crystals fluorescence. This can be seen when we do a EM with cathodoluminescence that there are some crystals that dont emit while in fluorescence we dont see all the crystals and only ones that emit. If we are quantifying uptake using luminescence how does one account for the particles that dont luminesce?
I am afraid that there is no such paper or they must be relatively rare. As Thomas Nann pointed out, most of the time the assumption is made that dark and fluorescent nanoparticles have the same fate in vivo. To the best of my knowledge, fluorescent and radioactive nanoparticles are generally compared for in vivo biodistribution. At the cellular level however I guess your best bet would probably be to look for fluorescence + TEM papers. I'll let you know if I find any.Following
- Jayampathi Basnayake added an answer:5Is there any software for converting RGB fractional exposures to real wavelengths?
I am using an IDS camera to identify RGB color ranges on some diseased leaves. It is easy to pick up the fraction of RGB (out of 255 grades) but I need to convert this into real wavelengths. Any ideas or advice would be appreciated.
I found an interesting paper by Brian Smits; An RGB to Spectrum Conversion for reflectances. This is more practical approachFollowing
- David S Gibson added an answer:2Has any institution had issues with UVP imaging products?
We've had a few issues with our UVP imaging system which seems specific to our camera. I'm just curious if any other institutions have had similar issues with this brand?
Also problems connecting to camera; previous problems with lines across the CCD. Replacements do take some time which is not good for a busy lab.Following
- Vladimir Bobic added an answer:5Does anyone have any experience in imaging human Lamina Splendens?
The uppermost layer of hyaline articular cartilage is often called Lamina Splendens. This film-like layer is seldom seen arthroscopically and various optical and electron microscopic imaging studies have shown conflicting morphology and structure of articulating surface. Considering its location there is no doubt that this zone, whatever the name, has extremely important articular (tribological) function as it provides a very low friction lubrication surface and contains lubricant and collagen fibrils which run parallel to the surface of articulation. This surface zone layer is likely to play a key role in maintaining the mechanical response of articular cartilage to load and wear and tear

- Yash Agarwal added an answer:9How do you convert DICOM images to a 3D solid model (iges, step, etc) which needs to be input into Abaqus for further analysis?
I currently have a set of 500 DICOM image of slides of a rhino's frontal snout and I am specifically interested in its frontal horn for further analysis.
I have tried a lot of software for the conversion but have had no success yet. It would be great if I could use any free software which does the above conversion directly.Following

I'm analysing ER-mitochondria contact sites but I can not find a detailed protocol to obtain 3D reconstructed and surface rendered images with ImageJ.Thank you
If you have access to Imaris software, it provides very high quality 3D rendering for confocal images. Imaris also allows data analysis based on your 3D rendering parameters.Following
- Dennis Tobias Klier added an answer:1What are the instruments and components are need for establish new Transient pump -prob or Transient Absorption Spectroscopy for bioimaging?
I need clear each and everything about instrumentation setup from basic alignment to final calibration of pump-prob spectrometer. I need all laser systems functional procedure and what are the safety measures to be taken and consider while in this experimental arrangements? Give some basics to advance ideas to setup this facility. Each and every aspects of ideas will be appreciated and make an excellent setup to be utilized many researchers for their research works.
Is it possible to give some more detailed information on the samples you are interessted in. Because there are so many different laser-detector systems combinations possible without a deeper insight what you are trying to achieve.Following
- Yoon-Soo Jang added an answer:3What's the working principle of micro channel plates (MCP) Photomultiplier tube (PMT)?
Why it's so special compared to traditional PMT? Why it can't respond to high repetition rate (tens of MHz) and need to be pulse picked to low down the repetition rate (~ tens of kHz)?
It takes a time to multiply photon in MCP.Following

- Abhijeet Lale added an answer:1Is there any optical properties difference between Graphene quantum dots and N-doped graphene quantum dots?Actually, graphene quantum dots (GQD) show different optical properties. Is there any change in the optical property after doping with nitrogen in the GQD?Yes there is difference between optical properties of undoped GQD and N-doped GQD. The undoped GQD has a very high fluorescence while doped GQD have no detectable photo-luminescence. Please refer to paper by Q Li published in JACS. The following explanation is taken from the same.
This is consistent with the absence of n→π* , the lowest-energy transitions, in
the absorption spectra of doped GQD. The n→π* transitions are expected for the N-substituted aromatic heterocycles. The large size of doped GQD explains the diminishing oscillator strengths of the n→π* transitions, because of the decreasing orbital overlap between the increasingly delocalized π* electrons and the nonbonding electrons localized on the nitrogen atoms. In contrast, the lowest-energy transition in undoped GQD is π→π*, which is responsible for the emission and has a less size-dependent oscillator strength.Following

- Robert Göstl added an answer:6Is it possible for a photochromic material to be both thermally reversible and photochemically reversible ?I am investigating a thermally reversible photochromic material, therefore, the back reaction is conducted in the dark. During normal room light conditions the forward reaction occurs readily (deep blue colour change). However, the back reaction also seems to occur by exposure to visible light (>490 nm). The back reaction is both thermally and photochemically induced.Following
