Abstract: An improved stripline cable is provided wherein porous, expanded polytetrafluoroethylene having continuous openings therethrough is disposed between sets of substantially parallel electrical conductors and having a covering on both sides thereof holding the conductors in place. The covering is preferably of a fluororesin.

Abstract: A low permittivity connector for providing a plurality of contacts disposed substantially parallel at predetermined spacings relative to each other. Ribbon-type conductors are disposed on a low-permittivity dielectric sheet and exposed on at least one side of the sheet. Wires are contacting respective ribbon-type conductors, disposed in a longitudinal direction relative to the conductors, and projecting as pins from an edge at one end of the low-permittivity dielectric sheet. A housing holds the low-permittivity dielectric sheet, the ribbon-type conductors, and the wires by way of joining sheets and having openings in the area of the ribbon-type conductors at a second end of the low-permittivity sheet for allowing insertion of pins projected from a like connector. A flat cable comprises a plurality of wires formed of a hard cord covered by a conductive layer, plurality of ribbon-type contacts contacting respective wires and a sheet which supports the ribbon-type contacts.
Abstract: A printed circuit is provided wherein the electrically conductive material which forms the circuit elements is embedded within a dielectric substrate. The preferred dielectric substrate is porous, expanded polytetrafluoroethylene.
Abstract: A reinforced porous dielectric sheet of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene is provided wherein solid plastic reinforcement elements in the form of circular columns or wall-like partitions extending through the dielectric sheet from one surface to the other are distributed within the sheet. The reinforced sheet is useful as a substrate for printed circuit boards. The reinforcement elements are preferably of a tetrafluoroethylene/ethylene copolymer or an epoxy resin.
Abstract: Means are provided for radiating electromagnetic waves from a receiving end zone of a dielectric line for transmitting electromagnetic waves without the need for a metal horn antenna or a metal waveguide, and matching problems are thereby substantially avoided. Said means are provided by shaping the end of the line to specified contours, by varying the dielectric constant of the material of the line in a gradient longitudinally near the end zone of the line, and by arranging a reflecting mirror or lens to receive the waves emitted from the line. This waveguide is useful in wireless communications, radar transmission and similar applications.
Abstract: A copy machine toner fixing device is provided having a plurality of rollers in which adjacent rollers are in contact under pressure, wherein at least one of the rollers is covered with a non-adhesive coating layer and copy paper carrying toner images thereon is passed between the rollers to fix the toner images on the paper, characterized in that the coating layer is an open celled, cellular plastic film wound around the periphery of the roller. A preferred film is expanded, porous polytetrafluoroethylene. The outer surface of the coating layer may advantageously be rendered non-porous by application of compression forces externally to the coating layer. Electroconductive filler may be advantageously incorporated into the open celled plastic film.

Abstract: A cooling device is provided for use in cooling surrounding human tissue during hyperthermia treatment of a cancerous tumor. The device comprises at least one tube constructed of a fluororesin having continuous pores, such as porous, expanded polytetrafluoroethylene, placed in a desired configuration adjacent the tissue to be cooled, and through which flows a coolant. Microwaves used in hyperthermia treatment of cancerous tumors can pass through the device and heat the tumor to be treated to a higher degree than heretofore possible because the adjacent noncancerous tissue can now be cooled. Because the tube is porous, the cooling effect is pronounced.
Abstract: A multilayer printed circuit board is provided comprising a plurality of printed circuit boards laminated together, each board being separated from an adjacent board by a layer of a dielectric of porous, expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). The dielectric layer may have an adhesive on its surface(s) affixed as a layer or in a pattern of dots. Alternatively, an adhesive may be impregnated within the pores of the porous dielectric. In a preferred embodiment, the dielectric has additional openings or through holes in it, in additon to the pores of the porous dielectric.
Abstract: A temperature sensor is provided comprising an electrical temperature sensing element such as a thermistor and a pair of high-resistance conductors of conductive fluorocarbon resin which are electrically connected to the electrical temperature sensing element. The conductors of conductive fluorocarbon resin are disposed on opposite surfaces of a body of fluorocarbon resin. The electrical temperature sensing element may be sandwiched between the pair of high-resistance conductors. Alternatively, the temperature sensor comprises a temperature sensing element held in place and in electrical contact between a pair of conductive fluorocarbon sheets, the sheets being fused one to each side of an electrically insulative sheet of fluorocarbon resin, thereby forming a laminated composite in sheet form, the laminate being vertically separated along its longitudinal axis remote from the temperature sensing element, thereby providing a 4-lead temperature sensor.
