• Characterizing optical properties in fibrous tissues 

    Shuaib, Ali (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)
    Optical methods are promising for non-invasive tissue characterization. Biological tissues can be classified into isotropic tissues and anisotropic tissues. The optical properties of isotropic tissues such as adipose ...
  • Ratiometric techniques to determine fluid viscosity using molecular rotors 

    Shuaib, Ali (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
    Molecular rotors exhibit viscosity-dependent quantum yield, potentially allowing measurements of fluid viscosity in non-mechanical manner. Several diseases are accompanied by blood plasma viscosity changes; therefore, a ...
