  • Patent number: 8024279
    Abstract: At least one resonator is disclosed having a plurality of nanoscale resonator elements, the at least one resonator having at least two, different resonant frequencies and configured to provide at least two signals in response to an input signal and at least two adders configured to weight the signals with respective weights and to add weighted signals so as to produce an output signal.

  • Publication number: 20090203535
    Abstract: An acoustic wave transducer substrate is provided, the substrate having a surface with a plurality of growth promotion sites for promoting the accumulation of polypeptide molecules at said sites. The growth-promotion sites are preferably for promoting fibril formation. The invention also provides a method of screening a candidate compound for an effect on fibril growth, including the steps of: providing an acoustic wave transducer substrate having a surface with a plurality of growth promotion sites for promoting the accumulation of polypeptide molecules at said sites; causing oscillation of the substrate; contacting the substrate surface with a sample fluid comprising polypeptide molecules and a candidate compound; and measuring one or more parameters of the substrate oscillation to monitor the accumulation of said polypeptide molecules of interest in the presence and absence of said candidate compound.

  • Patent number: 6666081
    Abstract: An elongate probe suitable for measuring one or more properties of a stream of fluid, the probe having an external planar sensing surface, which in use is exposed to the stream of fluid, at a longitudinal end thereof and comprising a plurality of sensors at the planar external sensing surface.

  • Patent number: 6614084
    Abstract: A memory element comprising nanomagnets having a rotational symmetry selected in order to provide high remanence and a suitable coercivity. There is also a sensor element comprising nanomagnets having a rotational symmetry selected such that they are superparamagnetic and exhibit substantially zero hysteresis so that a magnetisation of the nanomagnets depends only on the current value of applied field and not on the field history.
