Paper Abstract

Recent technology of photonic measurements provides direct observation of the weak modulation in the radiation from a human body, which may depends on psychological or mental conditions of the subject. We have been applying the photonic technology to detect the intensity modulation and spectra, from near ultraviolet to near infrared regime, to human subjects who claim healing ability in the art of qi and other Japanese holistic practices. The photomultiplier signal intensity has been observed to change in `on' and `off' and oscillatory manners, in accordance with the will of subjects. We will discuss the results of our optical as well as electrical measurements comprehensively, to investigate into this unexplored fields for the western science.
