Patent application serial number 774820 has not been assigned to a company or institution.
The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: "The invention relates to optical detection, and in particular, to an optical detecting apparatus capable of detecting a mechanical property and an optical property of a substance simultaneously through a non-contact and non-destructive method and an operating method thereof.
"In general, when we determine a function of a substance, the mechanical property and optical property of the substance will be used as important reference factors, and whether the substance still has the function will be judged by detecting the reference factors.
"Common substance property detecting methods usually can be divided into two types: destructive type and non-destructive type. The destructive type substance property detecting method uses external force to destruct original system of the substance to obtain slices or samples of the substance; the non-destructive type substance property detecting method uses non-destructive methods such as light, electricity, magnetic, or sonic to directly detect the substance. For some specific regions, such as detection done to living organisms, the non-destructive type substance property detecting method is preferred to reduce the damage caused to the living organisms.
"In various non-destructive type substance property detecting methods, ultrasound detecting method is a mature substance property detecting method and widely used to detect different substances. However, because the resolution of the ultrasound detecting method is not good enough, when the user wants to use ultrasound detecting method to analyze the substance in detail, it is hard to obtain good detected result, especially for detecting the physiological organizational structure system or organism (animal and plant).
"Therefore, an optical detecting apparatus and an operating method thereof are disclosed in the invention to solve the above-mentioned problems."
In addition to the background information obtained for this patent application, VerticalNews journalists also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "An embodiment of the invention is an optical detecting apparatus. In this embodiment, the optical detecting apparatus includes a light path module, an actuating module, and a data processing module. The light path module is used to emit a light source to a substance and receive an optical signal generated by the substance reflecting the light source. The actuating module is used to actuate the substance to generate a vibration. The data processing module is used to record and analyze a detected result related to the material properties of the substance and adjust detecting parameters of the light path module and the actuating module respectively.
