  • Publication number: 20220236580
    Abstract: A system for forming a homogenized illumination line which can be imaged as a low-speckle line is disclosed. The system includes a laser configured to emit a collimated laser beam; and an illumination-fan generator that includes one or more linear diffusers. The illumination-fan generator is arranged and configured to (i) receive the collimated laser beam, (ii) output a planar fan of diffused light, such that the planar fan emanates from a light line formed on the distal-most one of the one or more linear diffusers, and (iii) cause formation of an illumination line at an intersection of the planar fan and an object.

  • Publication number: 20180340075
    Abstract: A polymeric coating composition comprising a polymeric binder composition, a plurality of nanoparticles, a solvent and a polymeric evaporative droplet templating agent that is different from the polymeric binder is provided. The coating composition can be spray applied to a wide variety of substrates and the as-applied coating composition is then dried and cured into a coating that exhibits a droplet-shaped morphology. The coating provides a highly effective anti-fingerprinting coating with a unique droplet-shaped morphology that can be seen using scanning electron microscopy and provides a cost-effective means to coat substrates having many different surface contours to hide fingerprints.

  • Publication number: 20180206416
    Abstract: A controlled and closed agricultural system includes a growing space and an air handling system having a heat exchanger and cooling coil. The heat exchanger is capable of transferring sensible and latent heat and is in fluid connection with a recirculating air duct and an outside air duct. The recirculating air duct is in fluid connection with the growing space and one or more recirculation fans, while the outside air duct is in fluid connection with one or more outside air fans positioned to cause outside air to flow countercurrent to recirculating air through the heat exchanger. A cooling coil is positioned within the recirculating air duct, downstream of and in series with the heat exchanger. The cooling coil circulates a heat transfer fluid to remove additional heat from the recirculating air.
