Paper Abstract

Responsive or reactive materials offer the possibility for the development of low-power diagnostics for preventative healthcare. We have synthesized and characterized a functional polymeric material which irreversibly cleaves upon exposure to UV light. Because this cleavage is selective to UV wavelength, it could form the foundation of a UV indicator strip, allowing patients healthy and unhealthy populations to monitor their exposure. In a complementary project, we developed an all-fiber polarimetric elastography system for characterizing the mechanical properties of visco-elastic materials, such a tissue, and for correlating this signal with cellular/molecular-level markers.
