A GI-Specific Contrast Agent for Magnetic Resonance Imaging
A scaffold bearing eight terminal alkyne groups was synthesized from sucrose, and copies of an azide-terminated Gd-DOTA complex were attached via copper(I)-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition in this invention. This contrast agent (CA) was administered by gavage to C3H mice. Passage of the CA through the gastrointestinal (GI) tract was followed by...

Distributed Feedback Fiber Laser Pumped by Multimode Diode Lasers
Researchers at the University of Arizona College of Optical Sciences and Canada's Carleton University recently succeeded in fabricating high reflectivity (>99%) Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBGs) into phosphate glass fibers using UV light and a phase mask technique. With this new manufacturing technique, fiber lasers can be created as single monolithic...

A Novel Gd-Sucrose Scaffold for Oral Administration in MR-Colonography at 7 T
This invention is a Gadolinium-DOTA sucrose-derived agent synthesized with eight Gadolinium-DOTA chelates per sucrose and a molecular structure to induce stiffness and increase the rotational correlation time. For in vivo assessment, SCID mice were intra-rectally injected with human CRC cells. Then, the mice received the Gadolinium-DOTA sucrose-derived...

All-Fiber Multicore Fiber Laser Devices
Researchers at the University of Arizona have developed a compact, power-scalable, alignment-free fiber laser that takes a new approach to stabilizing phase-locked operation of multi-core fiber lasers by completely removing all free space optical components. This high-brightness, all-fiber laser package uses passive optical fiber spliced at both ends...
