Miguel A. GARCÍA GONZÁLEZ has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 10811558
    Abstract: A relevant technological challenge is the low cost and abundant materials development for silicon surface passivation for applications in optoelectronic devices, in particular in solar cells by scalable industrial methods. In the present invention, a new hybrid material comprising PEDOT:PSS and transparent conducting oxide nanostructures is developed and a method is proposed to fabricate the composite material that passivates well the silicon surface to be used by means of a thin composite film of thickness below 200 nm.

  • Patent number: 10725050
    Abstract: The present invention is comprised in the field of glycobiology. In particular, it relates to a method for separating, in biological samples, the fraction bound to or associated with sulfated glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), and the applications thereof in biomedicine, such as for identifying the profile of glycoproteins or the profile of lipids bound to or associated with sulfated GAGs, detecting an alteration in the pattern of glycosylation by sulfated GAGs, identifying biomarkers for the diagnosis, for the prognosis, for monitoring the progression of a disease or of the effect of a therapy, or for identifying compounds suitable for the treatment of a disease. The invention also relates to methods for diagnosing mucopolysaccharidosis and for diagnosing and determining the prognosis of a kidney disease.

  • Publication number: 20200214909
    Abstract: An absorbent core for an absorbent article, the absorbent core comprising at least two layers, each layer having a width w and a length l along a first plane and a thickness t extending perpendicular thereto, wherein the layers are arranged in facing relationship along the first plane, and wherein the layers comprise a polymeric foam having an open cell and interconnected porous structure. The first and second layers comprise an anisotropic cell structure having an axis of anisotropy extending substantially parallel to a longest length of a plurality of substantially neighbouring cells. The axis of anisotropy of the second layer extends substantially perpendicular to said thickness t and parallel to said first plane and the axis of anisotropy of the first layer is substantially perpendicular to the axis of anisotropy of the second layer.
