Dynamic Light Scattering in Phosphate Glasses

Roberto Fabian

Phosphate glasses have been used in various technological applications. There have been legitimate literatures by experiments showing the structural properties of the phosphate glasses. There are several kinds of phosphate glasses that depend on the ratio of their bridging oxygen, from network of phosphorus pentoxide-P2O5, to chain of metaphosphate-MPO3.

Photo- and Bio-physical Characterizations of Lipophilic Dyes for Neuronal Tracing

Jeff Tonniges

Lipophilic fluorescent dyes have been used to trace neuronal connections because of their ability to diffuse laterally between nerve cell membranes. Given the large number of connections that a typical neuron makes with its neighbors, a diffusion-matched set of spectrally distinct dyes is desirable. Previously, a trio of dyes was developed with well-separated green, red and far red fluorescence emission that permitted triple labeling.
