  • Patent number: 10908077
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for detecting mechanophore damage in a composite material where the mechanophores are embedded in a matrix of the composite material. A mechanical load is applied to the composite material. A damage precursor signal is generated as a result of the mechanical load and is detected before yield of the mechanophore embedded composite material. Detecting the damage precursor signal may include illuminating the mechanophore embedded composite material with UV light to excite the embedded mechanophores, capturing fluorescent emissions of the embedded mechanophores with a UV camera, and filtering light received at the UV camera based on an emission wavelength of the mechanophores. Alternatively, the damage precursor signal may be detected using spectra from an evanescent wave distorted by the mechanophore embedded composite material using an attenuated total reflectance-Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR) system.

  • Patent number: 10907145
    Abstract: Ligands and methods for selectively binding hypermethylated DNA from a sample. The ligands include a CG-region binding molecule-conjugated resin derived from the aminoglycoside antibiotic amikacin. Furthermore, the CG-region binding molecule may be conjugated to the resin with a crosslinker and/or may be modified with one or more of long chain and short chain alkyl, aryl, piperazinyl, piperidyl, and pyrrolidyl groups. Such ligands are used in methods for contacting a sample to thereby selectively bind hypermethylated DNA.

  • Patent number: 10902743
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for facilitating non-verbal communication. An electronic processor receives data from the hand-gesture sensor indicative of one or more gestures performed by a user, determines at least one word or phrase corresponding to the data from the hand-gestures sensor, and outputs a text representation of the at least one word or phrase on the display screen. Some systems output the text representation as a natural language sentence based on the data from the hand-gesture sensor and linguistic prosody information determined based, at least in part, on image data of the user captured while performing the one or more gesture. Some systems also includes at least one brain sensor and generate an alternative natural language text sentence in response to detecting a signal from the brain sensor indicative of a contradiction response after displaying the natural language text sentence on the display screen.

  • Publication number: 20210013619
    Abstract: Large intelligent surfaces (LISs) with sparse channel sensors are provided. Embodiments described herein provide efficient solutions for these problems by leveraging tools from compressive sensing and deep learning. Consequently, an LIS architecture based on sparse channel sensors is provided where all LIS elements are passive reconfigurable elements except for a few elements that are active (e.g., connected to baseband). Two solutions are developed that design LIS reflection matrices with negligible training overhead. First, compressive sensing tools are leveraged to construct channels at all the LIS elements from the channels seen only at the active elements. These full channels can then be used to design the LIS reflection matrices with no training overhead.

  • Publication number: 20210013886
    Abstract: A field-programmable gate array (FPGA) with reconfigurable threshold logic gates for improved performance, power, and area (PPA) is provided. This disclosure describes a new architecture for an FPGA, referred to as threshold logic FPGA (TLFPGA), that integrates a conventional lookup table (LUT) with a complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) digital implementation of a binary perceptron, referred to as a threshold logic cell (TLC). The TLFPGA design described herein, combined with a new logic mapping algorithm that exploits the presence of both conventional LUTs and TLCs within the basic logic element (BLE) block, achieves significant improvements in all the metrics of PPA. The TLCs of embodiments described herein are capable of implementing a complex threshold function, which if implemented using conventional gates would require several levels of logic gates. The TLCs only require seven static random-access memory (SRAM) cells and are significantly faster than the conventional LUTs.
