  • Patent number: 10533133
    Abstract: Polymer microparticles spatially and spectrally encoded using upconversion nanocrystals (UCN) are described for labeling of articles and tissues. UCN having spectrally distinguishable emission spectra are disposed in different portions of an encoding region of each microparticle.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20180000428
    Abstract: Systems and methods for predicting exposure to an agent. One or more features are extracted from physiological data. For each respective classifier, (i) the respective classifier is identified, wherein the respective classifier is trained using training data for a respective physiological state, (ii) the respective classifier is applied to the one or more features to obtain a classifier output that represents a likelihood of exposure, (iii) a respective first threshold is applied to the classifier output to determine a patient state classification, and (iv) the patient state classifications are aggregated across a number of time intervals to obtain an aggregate patient state classification for each classifier. The aggregate patient state classifications are combined across the plurality of classifiers to obtain a combined classification, and an indication that the patient has been exposed to the agent is provided when the combined classification exceeds a second threshold.

  • Publication number: 20070023489
    Abstract: In accordance with the invention, a first body is joined to a second body by joining a first amorphous braze layer to a surface of the first body and joining a second amorphous braze layer to a surface of the second body. A reactive multilayer foil is then disposed between the first and second amorphous braze layers. The layers are pressed together and the foil is ignited. Since the bodies can be joined to the braze layers by processes that do not require a furnace and the braze-coated bodies can be joined by the foil without a furnace, the method can produce strong brazed joints in typical workshop and field environments. Preferably the amorphous braze is a bulk metallic glass.
