Measurement of Quantum Interference in a Silicon Ring Resonator Photon Source Jeffrey A. Steidle1, Michael L. Fanto1,2, Stefan F. Preble1, Christopher C. Tison2,3,4, Gregory A. Howland2, Zihao Wang1, Paul M. Alsing2 1Microsystems Engineering, Rochester Institute of Technology, 2Air Force Research Laboratory, Rome, NY, 3Department of Physics, Florida Atlantic University, 4Quanterion Solutions Incorporated Silicon photonic chips have the potential to realize complex integrated quantum systems. Presented here is a method for preparing and testing a silicon photonic chip for quantum measurements.
Paired Nanoinjection and Electrophysiology Assay to Screen for Bioactivity of Compounds using the Drosophila melanogaster Giant Fiber System Monica Mejia1, Mari D. Heghinian2, Alexandra Busch1, Frank Marí2, Tanja A. Godenschwege1 1Department of Biological Sciences, Florida Atlantic University, 2Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry, Florida Atlantic University A rapid in vivo assay to test for neuromodulatory compounds using the Giant Fiber System (GFS) of Drosophila melanogaster is described. Nanoinjections in the head of the animal along with electrophysiological recordings of the GFS can reveal bioactivity of compounds on neurons or muscles.
Whole Mount Preparation of the Adult Drosophila Ventral Nerve Cord for Giant Fiber Dye Injection Jana Boerner1, Tanja A. Godenschwege1 1Department of Biological Sciences, Florida Atlantic University An in vivo dissection of the adult Drosophila ventral nerve cord (VNC) is demonstrated. This particular dissection method causes little damage to the VNC allowing the subsequent labeling of the giant fiber neurons with fluorescent dye for high resolution imaging.
