  • Patent number: 10305546
    Abstract: A method for sending data by inductive coupling includes: extracting an antenna signal from an antenna circuit, extracting from the antenna signal a first periodic signal, producing a second periodic signal by way of a synchronous oscillator, placing the oscillator in a free oscillation mode and applying to the antenna circuit the second periodic signal, modifying the impedance of the antenna circuit, restoring the amplitude of the antenna signal, then resynchronizing the oscillator on the first periodic signal.

  • Patent number: 9658212
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a process for evaluating in vitro at least one active agent capable of preserving the functionality of epithelial stem cells, in particular of maintaining or stimulating the growth and/or the density and/or the renewal of a keratin material, consisting in determining the ability of the active agent(s) to mimic a hypoxic state in the keratin material, the active agent(s) being capable of increasing the expression of at least carbonic anhydrase IX as biological marker of hypoxia, in the keratin material treated with the active agent(s) compared with the keratin material not treated with the active agent(s). It also relates to the use of such a process.

  • Patent number: 8468461
    Abstract: A computer-implemented system and method for defining the processes in a processing plant are disclosed. In one embodiment, the system uses input forms to allow a user to define the processes, chemicals, process streams, and sampling points in the plant in a way that requires no programming code to be written by the person defining the plant. In one embodiment, the electronic form-based user-configurable system can be used to configure and manage multiple plants belonging to one organization. The plant definition can be used to log information about the plant. The logged information can be used to generate reports or charts. Logging, reporting, and charting can be managed using input forms and without the user needing to write any computer code.

  • Patent number: 8084079
    Abstract: A method of densifying a porous substrate with pyrolytic carbon includes loading the substrate into an oven, admitting a reaction gas mixture to the oven, extracting an effluent gas from the oven, and recycling components of the effluent gas into the reaction gas mixture. The reaction gas mixture contains a pyrolytic carbon precursor gas together with a vector gas. The effluent gas contains residual components of the reaction gas mixture together with reaction products, including hydrogen. The recycling is performed after eliminating heavy hydrocarbons contained in the effluent gas.

  • Patent number: 7691440
    Abstract: A method of densifying porous substrates by chemical vapor infiltration comprises loading porous substrates for densification in a loading zone of an enclosure (10), heating the internal volume of the enclosure, and introducing a reagent gas into the enclosure though an inlet situated at one end of the enclosure. Before coming into contact with substrates (20) situated in the loading zone, the reagent gas admitted into the enclosure is preheated, at least in part, by passing along a duct (30) connected to the gas inlet and extending through the loading zone, the duct being raised to the temperature inside the enclosure, and the preheated reagent gas is distributed in the loading zone through one or more openings (33) formed in the side wall (32) of the duct, along the duct.
