  • Publication number: 20140326078
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides an optical sensing apparatus for measuring a change in a first property. The optical sensing apparatus comprises first and second optical fibre portions and a sensing region for exposing both the first and second optical fibre portions to a change in an applied force. The force is, or is related to, the first property and has a component that is transversal to the optical fibre portions. The apparatus further comprises a holder for holding the first and second optical fibre portions in the sensing region. The first and second optical fibre portions are arranged relative to each other such that the change in the force results in a first change of an optical property of the first optical fibre portion and in a second change of the optical property of the second optical fibre portion and wherein the first change differs from the second change.

  • Publication number: 20120192322
    Abstract: A new and distinct variety of diploid grapevine is provided which abundantly forms early-ripening juicy relatively large bunches of small substantially spherical berries that develop an intense black-purple coloration upon maturity. A propensity for high stenospermocarpic fruit production is displayed. Superior resistance to downy mildew and powdery mildew has been observed during evaluations to date. The plant is particularly well suited for the production of dried currants. The fruit also can be used in the table grape market or be used to make wine or grape juice.

  • Patent number: 7888499
    Abstract: Barley with reduced SSII activity has a starch structure with reduced amylopectin content and a consequent high relative amylose content. Additionally the grain can have a relatively high ? glucan content. The structure of the starch may also be altered in a number of ways which can be characterized by having a low gelatinsation temperature but with reduced swelling. The viscosity of gelatinised starch of the starch is also reduced. There is a chain length distribution of the amylopectin content and a low crystallinity of the starch. The starch is also characterized by having high levels of lipid associated starch exhibiting very high levels of V form starch crystallinity. The dietary fiber content of the starch is high. This has desirable dietary and food processing characteristics.
