Paper Abstract

Photonics is a science which research light quantum as the carrier for energy and information. Photonic technology in the meridian and acupoints research has shown the unique advantages, by which the microcosmic material basis and macroscopic phenomena research can be integrated to interpret the occurrence of propagated sensation along meridian and its underling mechanism. This paper focuses on the investigation on heat sensing action along the meridian by photonic technology. The four items of heat sensing action were discussed, i.e. thermo-effects, heat sensing capability, laser induced heat effect, underling mechanism on heat sensing effect along the meridian. The authors point out that photonic technology, e.g. photonic imaging, and infrared spectrum analysis, biological photons detection and laser Doppler application, can achieve purpose of in vivo, dynamic, and multiple comparable studies. Thereby the effect of heat sensing along meridian can be detected and illustrated by the use of natural science. Heat information can be investigated to analyze the relationship between zang-fu organs, meridians, and the functional characteristics of the meridian. Hence, the effect of heat sensing along the meridian is the break point of the research of photonics in the meridian which is beneficial to further study the meridian optics.
