    Abstract: A dual active electrochromic device is a combination of at least two working electrodes that contain electrochromic materials and at least one counter electrode where the potentials between each working electrode and a counter electrode are independently supplied. No more than one electrode is reflective. The color of the device results from the additive color of the electrochromic materials and varies according to the potentials applied independently. The electrochromic materials can be electrochromic polymers that are deposited as film on substrates to form the working electrodes. The electrochromic device can be used for display or window applications.

  • Patent number: 8277505
    Abstract: The subject invention provides a modular six-degrees-of-freedom spatial mechanism for spinal disc prosthesis, with up to three independent rotational and up to three independent translational degrees-of-freedom. The prosthesis can maintain non-separable, and non-restrictive, mechanical linkage by establishing a linked series, or chain, of kinematic pairs (joints) between components. In embodiment, a superior plate links to a planar pair (two independent degrees of translational freedom), which links to spherical pair (three independent degrees of rotational freedom), which links to a prismatic pair (one independent degree of translational freedom), which links to an inferior plate, completing the jointed kinematic chain. The kinematic pairs can be lower (surface contact) or higher (point, line, and/or curve contact) order pairs, or combinations.
