  • The measurement of the second order nonlinear susceptibility of collagen in various biological tissues has potential applications in the detection of structural changes which are related to different pathological conditions. We investigate second harmonic generation in rat-tail tendon, a highly organized collagen structure consisting of parallel fibers. Using an electro-optic modulator and a quarter-wave plate, we modulate the linear polarization of an ultra-short pulse laser beam that is used to measure second harmonic generation (SHG) in a confocal microscopy setup. Phase-sensitive detection of the generated signal, coupled with a simple model of the collagen protein structures, allows us to measuremore » a parameter {gamma} related to nonlinear susceptibility and to determine the relative orientation of the structures. Our preliminary results indicate that it may be possible to use this parameter to characterize the structure.« less
  • A new method is suggested for the nondestructive measurement of elastic moduli in local area (100{approx}400 {mu}m in diameter) using the phase-sensitive acoustic microscope. The complex V(z) curve which denotes the amplitude and phase of reflected ultrasonic wave front a specimen through the liquid coupler is measured for the variable defocused distance z from the surface of specimen. The reflectance function of the liquid-solid interface is computed from the inverse Fourier transform of the complex V(z) curve. The velocities of the longitudinal, transverse and Rayleigh waves in the specimen can be estimated from the function. Then, the Young`s modulus, shearmore » modulus and Poisson`s ratio of the specimen can be determined from the density and the measured wave velocities according to the elastodynamic theory. The elastic moduli for several kinds of glasses obtained by acoustic microscopy those obtained by other methods. It is shown that this method can be used to measure the local distribution of the microscopic characteristics in inhomogeneous materials as in the experimental results for an aluminum alloy presented here.« less
  • Transition metal complexes are being used as probes to determine the conformational structure of oligonucleotides, to recognize specific binding sites, and to probe the capability for electron transfer reactions in DNA strands. Non-covalent interactions, such as intercalation and hydrophobic groove binding of the metal complexes with oligonucleotide duplexes, provide the basis for probing DNA sequence and structure. Electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) has been used for the analysis of a wide variety of biomolecules, including oligonucleotides. Recently this technique has been utilized in the characterization of non-covalent associations. In this work, the authors report the use of ESI-MS for themore » detection of non-covalent associations of several metal complexes with two oligonucleotide duplexes and compare these results with observations from solution.« less
