Development and Optimization of a Non-contact Optical Device for Online
Monitoring Neonatal and Maternal Jaundice:
The global statistics of child-death under 5 years of age is very alarming. Twenty
children per minute die, mostly from preventive causes, almost all in
underdeveloped/developing world. While neonatal death (first day death) itself
accounts 1/3rd of the global child-death, neonatal jaundice (higher bilirubin level
at birth) is significantly responsible for neonatal death or otherwise results in
kernicterus causing irreversible brain damage. A large portion of neonatal deaths
depends on maternal health during pregnancy.
Silk protein for making biophotonic devices :
This novel material has the potential to spawn prototype textile-based smart
electronic devices for soldiers and biomedical applications.Researchers have

signals, makes it potentially useful for making biophotonic devices. It is
hybridized by depositing zinc oxide nanorods on a nanocomposite film made of silk
protein fibroin and gold nanoparticles.
