  • Patent number: 11821839
    Abstract: A scattered light detector comprises a first photodiode array comprising one or more photodiodes arranged in a planar, semicircular pattern on a substrate, each of the one or more photodiodes having an outer edge and an inner edge; and a notch perpendicular to the substrate and located adjacent the inner edge of each of the one or more diodes, and equidistant from the outer edges of each of the one or more photodiodes, the notch configured to accept an optical fiber oriented perpendicular to the plane of the one or more photodiodes. When there are two or more photodiodes, the photodiodes may be divided into two or more segments extending outwardly from the notch. Each of the photodiodes shares a common electrical ground. The planes of the one or more photodiodes of the first and second photodiode arrays are oriented parallel to each other and spaced a predetermined distance apart.

  • Patent number: 11164987
    Abstract: In accordance with various embodiments of the disclosed subject matter, a phototransistor comprises an NPN or PNP phototransistor having a base including a Si-region, a Ge-region, and a Ge—Si interface region wherein photons are absorbed in the Ge region and conduction-band electrons are attracted to the interface region such that the electrons' mobility is enhanced thereby.

  • Patent number: 8163352
    Abstract: A vibrating smoothing device or plate transverse to a direction of travel of deposited gypsum-cementitious slurry and embedded chopped fibers. The plate is used to smooth the top surface of the slurry panel as it exits a first fiber embedment station and a second slurry depositing station before passing through a second fiber embedment station of a structural cementitious panel production line to remove grooves and other non-uniform surface imperfections to have the slurry cover the embedded fibers. The plate is designed to float over the surface of the formed slurry without tearing or otherwise damaging the surface of the heavily fiber reinforced surface layers of the formed slurry before it sets. The vibrating plate is pivotally mounted on the web production line so it can float over the panel surface during use, but be raised off the line when not in use.

  • Patent number: 7381311
    Abstract: A filtered cathodic-arc plasma source of lower plasma losses and higher output plasma current to input current efficiency is disclosed. Plasma filtering is accomplished in a right angle bend magnetic filter arranged to include the effects of at least three added magnetic coils located at the right angle bend of the filter path. These magnetic coils and other filter attributes, including an array of transverse fins and a magnetic cusp trap in the filter path, achieve desirable magnetic flux paths, lower plasma collision losses and reduced undesired particle output from the plasma filter. Multiple cathode sources, multiple plasma output ports, Larmour radius influence, equipotential magnetic flux lines and electron/ion interaction considerations are also included in the plasma source. Application of the plasma source to film coating processes is included.

  • Patent number: 7256047
    Abstract: The present invention provides a combination of carbon-13 and deuterium metabolic tracers and methods that when used in conjunction with nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, provide a measurement of metabolic fluxes in the target organisms. The tracers of the present invention may be taken orally during the same clinical exam. The metabolic information can be derived from blood, urine or other fluids to provide a comprehensive profile of glucogenic metabolism. The subject matter of the present invention may be applied to the study of metabolic dysfunction related to obesity, diabetes, HIV infection and a variety of other disease conditions.

  • Patent number: 6509070
    Abstract: Formation of for example yttria stabilized zirconia films of significant 001 orientation on a variety of substrates including amorphous material and room temperature limited material is disclosed. The yttria stabilized zirconia film formation is achieved using pulsed laser ablation of a polycrystalline yttria stabilized zirconia target source while the substrate is electrically biased, disposed at a selected angle and maintained at substantially room temperature in the presence of an argon atmosphere. The film formation uses low bias voltage, requires no ion beam apparatus and employs low temperatures sufficient only to enable process stabilization. Film formation is accomplished in a step sequence wherein each step responds to temporal and spatial component segregations occurring in a laser-ablated ion plume.

  • Patent number: 6344232
    Abstract: Computer controlled fiber coating chemical vapor deposition system and method for generating substantially uniform coated fibers by maintaining chemical vapor deposition reactor temperature in real time. Reactor temperature is monitored by in situ temperature sensors. Reactor temperature is sensitive to oxygen levels and oxygen levels within the reactor are varied in response to temperature sensor data. Closed loop process control software maintains reactor temperature at a preselected value resulting in predictable fiber coatings of a preselected thickness, crystallinity and chemistry.

  • Patent number: 6329208
    Abstract: Simple equations that relate glucose, glutamate, glucuronate, and phenylacetylglutamine 13C NMR multiplet areas to gluconeogenesis and pyruvate recycling during metabolism of [1,2,3-13C3]propionate are presented. This indicates that a direct measure of gluconeogenesis, pyruvate recycling, and anaplerosis may be obtained from a single 13C NMR spectrum of suitably prepared blood or urine samples collected after oral administration of enriched propionate, acetaminophen, and phenylacetate.

  • Patent number: 4646227
    Abstract: In a control system monitor signals are received from points in the controlled system. The signals are band limited by filters respectively to provide matched band limited signals for correlation by comparison logic to provide failure flag output. The invention is based on the realization that signals in different parts of the system should correlate if suitably conditioned, and that the result of the correlation is indicative of performance.
