  • Patent number: 10317321
    Abstract: The invention provides a method termed protein retention ExM (proExM), in which proteins, rather than labels, are anchored to the swellable gel, using a cross-linking molecule. This proExM strategy can be used to perform nanoscale imaging of immunostained cells and tissues as well as samples expressing various FPs as fluorescent signals from genetically encoded fluorescent proteins and/or conventional fluorescently labeled secondary antibodies and streptavidin that are directly anchored to the gel are preserved even when subjected to the nonspecific proteolytic digestion.

  • Patent number: 9708727
    Abstract: A stirring apparatus of an ingot casting furnace includes a rotating shaft and at least one fin. The fin is provided onto the rotating shaft, and has a first edge, a second edge of unequal length provided correspondingly, and a third edge connecting the first and the second edges. The rotating shaft can be driven to rotate, which consequently drives the at least one fin to stir materials in a crucible. The length of the first edge is different from that of the second edge in order for the materials in the crucible can be mixed with dopants more uniformly during the stirring process to produce ingots of stable quality.

  • Patent number: 9404181
    Abstract: A plasma enhanced atomic layer deposition (PEALD) system used to form thin films on substrates includes a plasma chamber, a processing chamber, two or more ring units and a control piece. The plasma chamber includes an outer and an inner quartz tubular units, whose central axes are aligned with each other. Therefore, plasma is held and concentrated in an annular space formed between the outer and outer quartz tubular units. Due to the first and second through holes, the plasma flow may be more evenly distributed on most of the surface of the substrate to form evenly distributed thin films and nano particles on the substrate. In addition, due to the alignment and misalignment between the first and second through holes, the plasma generated in the plasma chamber may be swiftly allowed or disallowed to enter to the processing chamber to prevent the precursor from forming a CVD.

  • Patent number: 9341337
    Abstract: A vehicle headlight device includes a light guide plate, a light source device and a light-pattern adjustment plate. A thickness of the light guide plate is gradually increased from a light incident side to a light reflection side, and the light reflection side is provided with a parabolic surface. The light source device is disposed to coincide with or be near a focus point of the parabolic surface. The parabolic surface reflects at least one light beam emitted from the light source device to allow the light beam to propagate in an alignment direction. The light-pattern adjustment plate has multiple grooves. The grooves are parallel to each other and arranged on a surface of the light-pattern adjustment plate facing the light guide plate, and a longitudinal direction of the grooves is different to the alignment direction.

  • Patent number: 8962466
    Abstract: A metal oxide formed by in situ oxidation assisted by radiation induced photo-acid is described. The method includes depositing a photosensitive material over a metal surface of an electrode. Upon exposure to radiation (for example ultraviolet light), a component, such as a photo-acid generator, of the photosensitive material forms an oxidizing reactant, such as a photo acid, which causes oxidation of the metal at the metal surface. As a result of the oxidation, a layer of metal oxide is formed. The photosensitive material can then be removed, and subsequent elements of the component can be formed in contact with the metal oxide layer. The metal oxide can be a transition metal oxide by oxidation of a transition metal. The metal oxide layer can be applied as a memory element in a programmable resistance memory cell. The metal oxide can be an element of a programmable metallization cell.
