  • Patent number: 10549236
    Abstract: Systems and methods use oxygen uncoupling metal oxide material for decomposition of NOx. A gaseous input stream comprising NOx is contacted with a metal oxide particle, generating nitrogen (N2) gas and an oxidized metal oxide particle. After contacting the first gaseous input stream with the metal oxide particle, a first gaseous product stream is collected. The first gaseous product stream includes substantially no NOx. A second gaseous input stream comprising at least one sweeping gas is also contacted with the oxidized metal oxide particle. After contacting the oxidized metal oxide particle, the sweeping gas includes oxygen (O2) and a reduced metal oxide particle is generated. Then a second gaseous product stream is collected, where the second gaseous product stream includes oxygen (O2) gas.

  • Patent number: 10546572
    Abstract: A wave energy guiding system is described that includes a structural substrate formed according to a folded-pattern topology including, for example, an origami-type folded-pattern topology such as Miura-ori. The structural substrate includes a plurality of planar facets each positionable at an angle relative to adjacent planar facets. Each transducer of the plurality of transducers is positioned on a different one of the plurality of planar facets to form a transducer array. Adjustments to the angle of the adjacent planar facets cause a corresponding adjustment to a performance characteristic of the transducer array. In this way, the performance of the wave-energy guiding system can be adjusted and modified by adjusting the degree to which the structural substrate is folded in the folded-pattern topology.

  • Patent number: 10524688
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for inducing tissue vibration for magnetic resonance elastography is described. The system includes a hydraulic drive component that is mechanically linked to a pneumatic drive component. The pneumatic drive component is pneumatically linked to a passive pneumatic actuator component that is positionable on a patient proximate to a target tissue. Alternating linear movement of an actuator piston within the passive actuator component induces vibration of the target tissue. The frequency of the alternating linear movement of the actuator piston within the passive pneumatic actuator component is controlled by adjusting how fluid is pumped in the hydraulic drive component.

  • Patent number: 10509118
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to systems and methods for measuring wave fields of a body of water. A system can include a radiation source and an antenna that can cooperate with the radiation source to transmit a radio frequency (RF) signal to a wave field having one or more waves. The antenna can receive backscattered signals from the wave field. The system can include a local oscillator and a processor. The local oscillator downconverts the backscattered signals into baseband signals and the processor can process the baseband signals to determine a relative velocity of each of the waves of the wave field. The processor can further be programmed to identify an observed portion of the backscattered signals as bad data and remove the bad data from further processing.

  • Patent number: 10466188
    Abstract: A thermal simulator simulates the thermal behavior of items such as eggs for which the actual internal temperature profile is difficult to measure. A yolk body simulates the egg yolk, an albumen body surrounds the yolk body and simulates the egg albumen, and a shell layer surrounds the albumen body to simulate the shell. The thermal properties of the materials forming the egg body, albumen body and shell layer are tuned to match the thermal properties of the egg yolk, egg albumen and egg shell. Thermometric devices are positioned within the egg body and egg albumen along with communication devices which process signals from the thermometric devices indicative of temperature and communicate these signals to a computer for further processing and display.
