Optically-induced Flow Cytometry for Continuous Microparticle Counting and Sorting
Gwo-Bin Lee

This paper reports a new microfluidic device, optically-induced flow cytometry, capable of continuously counting and sorting microparticles based on optically-induced dielectrophoretic forces. Microparticles can be first successfully focused into a narrow line by using “virtual electrodes” generated by digital projectors. 9.7- and 20.9-μm microparticles can be then distinguished by …

Adenosine Modulates Cardiovascular Functions Through Activation of Extracellular Signal-Regulated Kinases 1 and 2 and Endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase in the Nucleus Tractus Solitarii of Rats
Pei-Jung Lu

Nucleus tractus solitarii (NTS) locates in the brain stem which is the central cardiovascular control center and have been demonstrated to play an important role in the cardiovascular regulation. Our previous study also demonstrated that the cardiovascular regulatory effects of insulin in the NTS were accomplished through activating PI3K-PKB/Akt-NO signaling pathways. Adenosine has been shown to …

Optimized Scale-and-Stretch for Image Resizing
Tong-Yee Lee

Recently, content aware image resizing is becoming important, since current display devices, such as television, notebooks, PDAs and cell phones, all come in different aspect ratios and resolutions. Traditional methods perform homogeneous resizing without considering the image content, equally propagating the distortion over the entire image and noticeably squeezing prominent objects. …

Utilization of Fuel and Development of Fuel Industry in Qing Taiwan
Pin-Tsang Tseng

As fuel is an important material in daily life, its acquirement and utilization is thus a significant subject of research in life history, economic history as well as in environmental history. Historians Braudel and Pomeranz have both pointed out that one important reason contributing to the prosperity of modern Europe is its advantage of forest resources, which could not only benefit important …
