Untargeted metabolomics of the bacterial tongue coating of intra-oral halitosis patients.

Intra-oral halitosis (IOH) refers to an unpleasant odour from the oral cavity that is mainly caused by the tongue coating. Although the tongue coating microbiome is thought to play an essential role in IOH, the exact aetiology of IOH remains unclear. Here we investigated and compared the metabolic profiles of the tongue coating microbiomes of patients with IOH versus healthy control. The metabolic profiles were significantly different in IOH patients than in healthy controls. Healthy controls showed higher ...

Dynamic calibration method of the laser beam for a non-orthogonal shaft laser theodolite measurement system.

The non-orthogonal shaft laser theodolite (N-theodolite) measurement system is a new kind of instrument applied to large-scale metrology. The system consists of two identical N-theodolites, each of which is made up of a two-dimensional rotary table and one collimated laser. The three axes of the N-theodolite have no strict requirements on their orthogonality and intersection conditions. A novel method, to the best of our knowledge, is proposed to calibrate the N-theodolite measurement system, and the calibr...

Halitosis: prevalence, risk factors, sources, measurement, and treatment - a review of the literature.

Halitosis, an offensive breath odour, has multiple sources and negative impacts on people's social interactions and quality of life. It is important for health care professionals, including general physicians and dental professionals, to understand its etiology and risk factors in order to diagnose and treat patients appropriately. In the study, we have reviewed the current literature on halitosis regarding its prevalence, classification, risk factors, sources, measurement, and treatment.

A compact and portable laser radioactive decontamination system using passive Q-switched fiber laser and polygon scanner.

We designed a compact and portable laser radioactive decontamination system using a passive Q-switched fiber laser and a polygon scanner. The passive Q-switched fiber laser produced average power of 15 W at a repetition rate of 60 kHz. The scanner system contained a 12-sided spinning polygon mirror driven by a DC motor. By varying the spinning speed of the polygon mirror, we achieved a processing speed of up to 88,500 mm/s. This system was demonstrated to be very efficient for radioactive decontamin...

To compare the dimensions and density of the tongue in brachycephalic and mesaticephalic dog breeds and to document the relative extents of the nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal airways occupied by the tongue and palatal tissues.

Robotic Tongue-Base Resection Combined With Tongue-Base Suspension for Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

Our primary objective was to evaluate the feasibility, morbidity, and efficacy of transoral robotic surgery (TORS) tongue-base resection (TBR) combined with tongue-base suspension (TBS) for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with tongue-base collapse. Our secondary objective included evaluation of factors influencing treatment success.

Highly efficient tunable picosecond deep ultraviolet laser system for Raman spectroscopy.

We present a narrowband laser system tunable from 219 to 236 nm for deep ultraviolet (DUV) Raman spectroscopy. The demonstrated laser system produces 6.7 ps nearly transform-limited pulses with energy up to 0.36 µJ at 100 kHz repetition rate.

Discovery of Several New Families of Saturable Absorbers for Ultrashort Pulsed Laser Systems.

Saturable Absorber (SA) is a key element of any passive mode-locked laser system to provide ultrashort laser system. So far various materials have been proposed that could be used for this purpose. However, the field is still looking for new ways to make the fabrication process easier and cost-effective. Another challenge in testing mode-locked laser systems using various SA samples is the lack of knowledge in preparing these by laser physicists given this is outside their remit of expertise.
