  • Patent number: 10605560
    Abstract: An apparatus is described that is operable between a raised and lowered position for lifting an object. The apparatus may include an arrow rest for use with an archery bow, wherein the arrow rest has arrow support members operable to form a v-shaped arrow supporting notch, wherein the support members move in a lateral manner to vary a depth of the v-shaped notch. The support members are oriented to actuate between a raised and lowered position. The arrow rest is suitable for coupling to the bow in a manner so that as the bow string is drawn the support members raise the arrow into a shooting position, and when the bow string is released the support members actuate away from the arrow to avoid contact between the arrow and support members. Further, the arrow rest is adjustable to accommodate various diameter arrow shafts and to adjust the lateral and vertical orientation of the arrow shaft relative to the riser.

  • Publication number: 20190221325
    Abstract: A process for producing a hardened target plate coated with a molybdenum-100 metal, comprising the steps of: (i) suspending and intermixing a refined molybdenum-100 metal powder having grain sizes of less than about 10 microns, and a binder, in a polar organic solvent; (ii) inserting into the molybdate-100 mixture, a cathode plate comprising a transition metal and an anode plate comprising conductive metal; (iii) applying a potential from about 300 V to about 1,300 V to the anode plate and cathode plate; (iv) recovering the cathode plate from the molybdate-100 mixture; and (v) sintering the cathode plate at a temperature from a range of about 1,200° C. to about 1,900° C. for a period of time from about 3 h to about 8 h.

  • Publication number: 20190139773
    Abstract: The present invention generally describes one ore more methods that are used to perform an annealing process on desired regions of a substrate. In one embodiment, an amount of energy is delivered to the surface of the substrate to preferentially melt certain desired regions of the substrate to remove unwanted damage created from prior processing steps (e.g., crystal damage from implant processes), more evenly distribute dopants in various regions of the substrate, and/or activate various regions of the substrate. The preferential melting processes will allow more uniform distribution of the dopants in the melted region, due to the increased diffusion rate and solubility of the dopant atoms in the molten region of the substrate. The creation of a melted region thus allows: 1) the dopant atoms to redistribute more uniformly, 2) defects created in prior processing steps to be removed, and 3) regions that have hyper-abrupt dopant concentrations to be formed.

  • Publication number: 20170271036
    Abstract: A system for producing technetium-99m from molybdate-100. The system comprises: a target capsule apparatus for housing a Mo-100-coated target plate; a target capsule pickup apparatus for engaging and delivering the target cell apparatus into a target station apparatus; a target station apparatus for receiving and mounting therein the target capsule apparatus. The target station apparatus is engaged with a cyclotron for irradiating the Mo-100-coated target plate with protons. The irradiated target capsule apparatus is transferred to a receiving cell apparatus comprising a dissolution/purification module for receiving therein a proton-irradiated Mo-100-coated target plate. A conveyance conduit infrastructure interconnects: (i) the target capsule pickup apparatus with the target station apparatus, (ii) the target station apparatus and the receiving cell apparatus; and (iii) the receiving cell apparatus and the dissolution/purification module.
