  • Publication number: 20200393792
    Abstract: A method for optimally producing a holographic image using a Holographic Optical Element (HOE) and the HOE meant for controlling directions and divergences of light beams to impart system compactness. The system uses concave and convex lenses and other beam expanding, splitting, modulating and combining optics for realization of compactness and high throughput. The thin laser beam is split using a holographic optical element and a conventional beam splitter. A neutral density filter adjusts the intensity of a reference beam to match the intensity of an object beam so that high quality digital holograms can be recorded. Effects of vibrations are minimized by the compact optical design, by anti-vibration mounts, by mounting all the opto-mechanical components on a single rigid platform and by enclosing the system. An electro-optical sensor array records holograms digitally and an algorithm numerically reconstructs and further quantifies the results using a personal computer/laptop/tablet etc.

  • Patent number: 10811546
    Abstract: A process of depositing zirconium oxide (ZrO2) layers possessing dual properties of anti-reflection and passivation of silicon surfaces, including passivation of n-type and p-type silicon substrates. To grow a ZrO2 anti-reflection passivation layer, a precursor layer of zirconium oxide is spun on a silicon surface then dried, pyrolyzed and fired at suitable contact firing conditions, avoiding additional deposition. Thermal annealing in a hydrogen environment improves passivation quality of ZrO2 layer to a level 3-4 times higher than that of fired films alone. ZrO2 dielectric passivation layers exhibit improved passivation quality after illumination due to photo-enhanced passivation and higher passivation quality at higher thermal budget suitable for screen printed metal contact firing, unlike standard PECVD deposited passivation layers. The method is adaptable for fabrication of silicon solar cells and other structures utilizing passivated layers.

  • Patent number: 10806715
    Abstract: The current invention relates to development of new formulation containing gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) with bi-functional recombinant fusion proteins TRAF(C) for the delivery of anticancer drugs and nucleic acids to HER2+ cancers. Using the combinatorial approach, we designed gold nanoparticle-based targeted drug delivery system (TDDS) or (Au-TR-DX-si) by combining AuNPs with bi-functional recombinant fusion protein TRAF(C) (TR), doxorubicin (DX) and siRNA (si). The recombinant protein based gold nanoparticles formulations are stable and homogenous as revealed by several physicochemical studies. In addition, the engineered fusion protein TRAF (C) has the ability to target selectively to HER2+ receptors overexpressed in ovarian cancer cells (SK-OV-3).

  • Patent number: 10793480
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for the preparation of multi-nutrient potassic fertilizer, by recovering potassium from sugarcane molasses based alcohol distillery effluent (commonly known as ‘spent wash’). The process involves pre-treatment of spent wash to clarify the aqueous phase and utilization of the treated spent wash in production of potassic fertilizer. The present invention enables utilisation of spent wash for recovery of value-added product (viz., potash fertiliser of >99% purity) and improves ease of ‘Zero Liquid Discharge’ compliance by subjecting the relatively benign process effluent to industrially practiced techniques for water recovery and salt reclamation.
