  • Publication number: 20220267627
    Abstract: In various embodiments, the present invention is directed to photothermal-responsive melanin-based nanocomposites comprising a plurality of natural or synthetic melanin nanoparticles distributed with a polymer matrix suitable for use in anti-counterfeiting, photothermal responsive-communication, sensors, and heat management, among other applications. In some embodiments, the present invention will be an ink, paint, or other coating comprising the photothermal-responsive melanin-based nanocomposites. In some embodiments, the present invention is directed to a written message or design comprising one or more of the photothermal-responsive melanin-based nanocomposites. In some of these embodiments, the written message or design will be comprised of two ore more of the photothermal-responsive melanin-based nanocomposites having different concentrations of natural or synthetic melanin nanoparticles.

  • Publication number: 20220260041
    Abstract: A fuel tank system constructed in accordance to one example of the present disclosure includes a fuel tank and an evaporative emissions control system. The evaporative emissions control system is configured to recapture and recycle emitted fuel vapor. The evaporative emissions control system includes a liquid trap, a first device, a second device, a control module and a G-sensor. The first device is configured to selectively open and close a first vent. The second device is configured to selectively open and close a second vent. The control module regulates operation of the first and second devices to provide over-pressure and vacuum relief for the fuel tank. The G-sensor provides a signal to the control module based on a measured acceleration.

  • Patent number: 11001088
    Abstract: In one or more embodiments, the present invention provides a method of applying or printing structural colors to a substrate that involves pre-treatment of the substrate surface to prevent absorption of the fluid containing the particles. This allows the fluid to maintain their sessile drop shapes and as the water evaporates, the colloidal particles spontaneously assemble within the confined geometry into semi-ordered structures that interact with light to produce structural color. While the pre-treatment may be done in a variety of ways, application of a, hydrophobic and/or oleophobic coating, like 1H-IH,2H-perfluoro-1-dodecene (C10F21—CH?CH2) (perfluoro) monomer, fluoroalkyls, fluorohydroalkyls, cyclo-fluoroalkyls, fluorobenzen, by plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (cold plasma treatment) has been found to be effective, particularly for printing applications. These treated substrates allow production of a wide range of structural colors using binary systems of nanoparticles.

  • Patent number: 10837652
    Abstract: An appliance door assembly is provided that comprises a primary door pivotally coupled to an appliance and positioned to seal a cavity defined by the appliance and a secondary door slideably coupled to the primary door. The secondary door is slidable between a first position and a second position when the primary door is in a closed position. The appliance door assembly further includes first and second engagement features operable between first and second positions. The secondary door is operably coupled to a track assembly disposed within the cavity when the first engagement feature is in the first position. The first and second positions of the second engagement feature correspond with the first and second positions of the first engagement feature. The secondary door is operably coupled to a rack disposed within the cavity when the second engagement feature is in the first position.
