Guided-Wave Arrayed Optical Sensing for Synchronized Interaction of Chaostic Physiology

Project Details


In the proposal, we would investigate the synchronized physiological interaction and complexphysiological rhythms based on the methodology of photoplethysmography (PPG). An opticalbio-sensor based on two-dimensional optical waveguide array is adopted to improve the temporo-spatialresolution of architecture for stochastic processes of chaostic physiologies. The proposed opticalbio-sensor can be operated using one-dimensional or two-dimensional input signals with a singlewavelength or multiple wavelengths.An algorithm using the continuous wavelet transform (CWT) as the methodology is developed foranalyzing physiological chaotic random signals and for achieving a disease indicator identification underthe interaction of multiple physiological systems. It is expected to resolve the complexity ofinstantaneous physiological signals, including the improvement of their signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) andbaseline wander (BW).The algorithm developed in this proposal is expected to be able to detect and analyze the spatialphase and frequency of the physiological signals with a two-dimensional guided-wave array architecture.Up to now, there is no algorithm to analyze the waveforms of synchronized physiological interactions.So it is impossible to mark a disease index identification under the interaction of multiple physiologicalsystems. It is expected that the implementation of this proposal will resolve the waveforms ofsynchronized physiological interactions and mark the identification of disease indicators under theinteraction of multiple physiological systems.
