  • Publication number: 20080271778
    Abstract: The present disclosure concerns a means to use at least a form of electromagnetic excitation or light-matter interactions in a structure or material having one or more addressable frequencies to generate the exchange of thermal, kinetic, electronic or photonic energy. In some implementations this provides a means to use electromagnetic excitation or light-matter interactions to influence, cause, control, modulate, stimulate or change the state or phase of electrical, magnetic, optical or electromagnetic charge, emission, conduction, storage or similar properties. The method could include the use of light-matter interactions to generate electromagnetic excitation or light-matter interactions and concentrate extremely localized field effects or concentrated plasmonic field effects to cause an exchange of energy states in a material or structure.

  • Publication number: 20080236652
    Abstract: Means to use and combine methods of thermal engineering, plasmonics, photonics, electronics, photovoltaics, optical transfer, heat transport, light transport, catalysis and chemical reactions individually or in any combination for the enhancement or generation of solar, optical, electrical or any form of energy. The present disclosure further concerns a means to use at least a form of electromagnetic excitation or light-matter interactions in a structure or material having one or more addressable frequencies to generate the exchange of thermal, kinetic, electronic or photonic energy.

  • Publication number: 20080154431
    Abstract: The present disclosure concerns a means to use at least a form of electromagnetic excitation or light-matter interaction, including solar or laser energy to generate localized conditions that enable initiation and spatial and temporal control of catalysis, chemical reactions, deposition, synthesis, photocatalysis, electrocatalysis and catalytic processes. Initiation and spatial and temporal control may be obtained by restricting and directing the electromagnetic excitation or light-matter interactions to specific objects or features embedded or located in or on a host matrix material or substrate. In some implementations this provides a means to use electromagnetic excitation to initiate and control chemical synthesis or reactions without entirely or partially heating any of or all of the reaction chamber, reactor mass, reaction precursors and products, or reactor substrate. It may further provide for the use of temperature sensitive elements or substrates.

  • Publication number: 20070033198
    Abstract: This invention concerns a method or means to provide an architecture for distribution of data and access on or over any one or many forms of communications, telecommunications, information, Internet or Intranet access infrastructure. Said architecture may include a means or method of data compression by the use of software coding for objectification, visualization or integration of data. The method of use of the invention described herein may include a search engine or browser platform. This invention further concerns a method and means to use mathematical algorithms or transforms to plot the motion and momenta of real or simulated particles in space. Said method may include a means to represent such data as bounded spatial coordinates in a many body system and to express such data as a bounded figure, which may include a curve or any other form.

  • Publication number: 20060287921
    Abstract: The present disclosure concerns methods and systems for Acquisition and Redistribution of Internet Access. In some implementations the method includes acquisition of Internet access and redistribution for marketing, advertising, promotional, branding, dedicated applications, customized platforms, special events or any other purpose including combining or enhancing said access with content and management functions for resale. The method could further include returning a portion of the revenue derived from such use to consumers in the form of cost subsidized redistribution of Internet access. The method could further include the acquisition enhancement, sale and redistribution of Internet access through an auction process that identifies specific factors to establish comparative values.

  • Patent number: 6178217
    Abstract: A multiple access communications data and information transport system and methodology for employing the noise present in any conduit as a carrier form using wireless chaotic waveform signals supported by nonlinear noise sustaining structures. The communications system utilizes digital devices and software embodying various algorithms designed to manipulate the nonlinear perturbations of any given conduit to establish a high bandwidth bidirectional, isochronous noise immune communications signal. Additionally, the system can be combined with any of a number of wireless or wireline communication methodologies to further enhance performance in terms of bandwidth, throughput, noise immunity, power consumption, cell size, and number of users without disturbing any concurrent signal traffic.
