  • Publication number: 20210035746
    Abstract: A mesoporous, nanocrystalline, metal oxide construct particularly suited for capacitive energy storage that has an architecture with short diffusion path lengths and large surface areas and a method for production are provided. Energy density is substantially increased without compromising the capacitive charge storage kinetics and electrode demonstrates long term cycling stability. Charge storage devices with electrodes using the construct can use three different charge storage mechanisms immersed in an electrolyte: (1) cations can be stored in a thin double layer at the electrode/electrolyte interface (non-faradaic mechanism); (2) cations can interact with the bulk of an electroactive material which then undergoes a redox reaction or phase change, as in conventional batteries (faradaic mechanism); or (3) cations can electrochemically adsorb onto the surface of a material through charge transfer processes (faradaic mechanism).

  • Publication number: 20210022411
    Abstract: A wearable article includes a front and back elastic belts, a crotch region, a waist opening, and leg openings. Each elastic belt is a laminate having an inner sheet, an outer sheet, and an elastic member. Elastic adhesive bonding continuously bonds the elastic member for at least about 10 mm in the direction of stretch adjacent the side edges of the belts. A discrete patterned adhesive bonding is applied to at least one of the inner and outer sheets to intermittently bond the inner and outer sheets. The discrete patterned adhesive bonding extends substantially along the transverse direction between the elastic adhesive bonding, and substantially along the longitudinal direction between the distal and proximal edges of the elastic belts. The same adhesive agent provides the elastic adhesive and discrete patterned adhesive bonding. Heat bonds form side seams, and the remainder of the laminate is free of heat bonds.

  • Publication number: 20210013550
    Abstract: A novel wound electrode assembly for a lithium oxyhalide electrochemical cell is described. The electrode assembly comprises an elongate cathode of an electrochemically non-active but electrically conductive carbonaceous material disposed between an inner elongate portion and an outer elongate portion of a unitary lithium anode. That way, lithium faces the entire length of the opposed major sides of the cathode. This inner anode portion/cathode/outer anode portion configuration is rolled into a wound-shaped electrode assembly that is housed inside a cylindrically-shaped casing. A cylindrically-shaped sheet-type spring centered in the electrode assembly presses outwardly to limit axial movement of the electrode assembly. In one embodiment, all the non-active components, except for the cathode current collector which is nickel, are made of stainless-steel. This provides the cell with a low magnetic signature without adversely affecting the cell's high-rate capability.

  • Publication number: 20210014798
    Abstract: A method for reporting power headroom is disclosed. Power headroom may be reported across all carriers (wideband), for a specific carrier, or for a carrier group. The formula used to calculate the power headroom depends on whether the carrier (or a carrier in the carrier group) has a valid uplink grant. If the carrier or carrier group does not have a valid uplink grant, the power headroom may be calculated based on a reference grant. The power headroom is calculated by a wireless transmit/receive unit and is reported to an eNodeB.

  • Publication number: 20210000939
    Abstract: The present invention provides for modified Flavivirus such as a modified Zika virus. The modification according to various aspects of the invention results in reduced viral proteins compared to a parent virus, wherein the reduction in expression is the result of recoding one or more regions of the virus. For example, the prM, or envelope (E) region, or the nonstructural protein 3 (NS3) region or both the E and NS3 regions can be recoded. In various embodiments one or more regions are recoded by reducing the codon pair bias or codon usage bias of the protein-encoding sequence. These modified Flavivirus are used as vaccine compositions to provide a protective immune response.

  • Patent number: 10884475
    Abstract: A portable electronic device determines a battery available power for the device's battery and manages device power usage based upon the battery available power. The device includes a battery and a controller. The controller is configured to receive a first voltage value for the battery at a first time, a first current value for the battery, a second voltage value for the battery at a second time, and a second current value for the battery. It is determined that a time difference between the first time and the second time exceeds a predetermined time threshold. An estimated resistance of the battery is determined based at least on a first difference between the first current value and the second current value and a second difference between the first voltage value and the second voltage value. Real-time power usage of the device is controlled based on the estimated resistance of the battery.
