  • Patent number: 10814270
    Abstract: A low-cost and easy-to-fabricate mixed e? and CO32? conducting membrane for advanced high-flux and selective electrochemical CO2 separation from flue gas is provided. The membrane includes a CO32?-conducting molten carbonate phase and an e?-conducting lithiated Ni-oxide interphase that can be formed in situ during operation. The membrane exhibits a CO2 flux density greater than 0.8 mL/(minute·cm2) at 850° C. with a selectivity ranging from about 100 to about 500 and excellent stability for up to about 450 hours. Further, the self-formed interphase Li0.4Ni1.6O2 is highly electron conducting and can provide electrons to the co-reduction of CO2 and O2 into CO32?. Such a membrane is an alternative to the conventional “size-sieving” inorganic and “dissolution-diffusion” organic counterparts for CO2 capture from flue gas.

  • Patent number: 10812166
    Abstract: An approach to predistortion of a first set of signals for an antenna array allows beam-steering without corrupting spectrum away from the main beam and where other users may be located. In some implementations, the predistorter uses fewer than one predistorter per signal (i.e., per power amplifier or per antenna), and/or has the computational complexity of such fewer predistorters, to generate predistortions of the first set of signals for amplification and transmission via the antenna array.

  • Publication number: 20200228940
    Abstract: A device may receive, from an application function device (AF), a message intended for a destination user device, wherein the message conforms to a first format. The device may obtain, from a unified data management device (UDM), information indicating that the destination user device is capable of receiving messages that conform to a second format. The device may convert, based on the information indicating that the destination user device is capable of receiving messages that conform to the second format, the message from the first format to the second format. The device may send, after converting the message from the first format to the second format, the message to a short message service function device (SMSF) via a direct connection between the device and the SMSF, wherein the SMSF sends the message to the destination user device.

  • Patent number: 10693971
    Abstract: The techniques enable a device to identify a best suitable application to open a resource such as a file. The file can be shared via a link or can be attached to a communication. The link comprises a uniform resource locator (URL) or is in some way associated with an underlying URL. The URL includes a pattern, or a portion that identifies a domain (e.g., a hostname) and/or a portion that identifies a type of file that is to be accessed and opened. Upon activation of the link, the device analyzes the URL to determine the pattern. The device then obtains, from a service associated with the URL, a ranked list of applications that are authorized to open the file. Moreover, the device performs, at run-time, a negotiation with the service to determine which application is best suited to open the file.

  • Publication number: 20200178723
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for sharing capsule image data and beverage preparation parameters, from one or more beverage preparation machines with a remote computer system via a network, such as the Internet, is disclosed. The remote computer system may process the capsule image data to determine characteristics of the capsule (e.g., a type of capsule, such as a brand, or beverage ingredients in the capsule), thereby relieving the beverage preparation from having to determine information about the capsule. The remote computer may track a user's consumption of capsules, may compare this value to the user's past capsule purchase history, and may determine if the user's supply of capsules is below a threshold value (e.g., below a week's worth of capsules).
