  • Publication number: 20160003448
    Abstract: A color filter layer, a color film substrate including the color filter layer, and a display apparatus including the color filter substrate are provided. The invention relates to the field of display technology and can solve the problem that the color membrane substrates in the prior art have a relatively low utilization ratio of light. The color filter layer of the invention comprises a filter membrane and a light conversion layer disposed on the light entering side of the filter membrane. According to the invention, the light of other frequencies in incident light can be converted into light having the same spectral characteristics as the respective filter membranes, due to the presence of the light conversion layer. Therefore, the utilization ratio of light and the display brightness can be improved, and thus energy consumption can be saved effectively and the display performance can be enhanced.

  • Patent number: 9145802
    Abstract: A heat exchanger (7) for an exhaust system (5) of an internal combustion engine (1), includes a heating tube (16) for carrying hot exhaust gas and a cooling tube (17) for carrying a liquid cooling agent. A thermoelectric generator (13) generates an electric voltage from a temperature difference and is arranged with the adjacent tubes in a stacking direction (18) to form a stack (21). A support tube (28) is supported in the stacking direction on wall sections (29) of the respective tube (16, 17), which wall sections mutually face each other, and is arranged in the respective heating tube (16) and/or cooling tube (17). Increased energy efficiency is achieved if at least two support tubes (28), which differ from one another by tube length and/or tube end (30) and/or by tube cross sections, are arranged in the respective tube (16, 17) at right angles to a longitudinal direction (31).

Preferred other metals are accordingly selected from the group consisting of transition metals (defined as Groups 4-11 of the periodic table), as well as certain other non-transition metals such as tin, bismuth, and lead. The active materials may be synthesized in single step reactions or in multi-step reactions. In at least one of the steps of the synthesis reaction, reducing carbon is used as a starting material. In one aspect, the reducing carbon is provided by elemental carbon, preferably in particulate form such as graphites, amorphous carbon, carbon blacks and the like. In another aspect, reducing carbon may also be provided by an organic precursor material, or by a mixture of elemental carbon and organic precursor material.

  • Publication number: 20120043208
    Abstract: A multi-channel gel electrophoresis apparatus for efficiently collecting molecules isolated by gel electrophoresis so they can be further analyzed, identified, or used as reagents or medications. The apparatus using a novel “tagless” strategy that combines multi-dimensional separation of endogenous complexes with mass spectrometric monitoring of their composition. In this procedure, putative protein complexes are identified based on the co-migration of collections of polypeptides through multiple orthogonal separation steps. A majority of E. coli proteins are shown to remain in stable complexes during fractionation of a crude extract through three chromatographic steps.
