  • Patent number: 8894457
    Abstract: A surfer leash for a stand up paddle boards includes a plurality of strands that are woven together for increased strength. Such increased strength is necessary when dealing with the heavier and larger boards typically used in stand up paddle boarding. The leash is applied and worn around a surfer's ankle at one end and attached to the stand up paddle board at an opposing end.

  • Publication number: 20140034829
    Abstract: A system and method for transmission electron microscopy (TEM) of a photocatalyst sample exposed to UV and/or visible light at irradiance levels comparable to those provided by irradiation with sunlight or at least 1,000 W/cm2 while maintaining the spatial resolution of interrogation of at least 0.14 nm. Light is delivered to the sample substantially transversely to the sample's surface from an external broadband source through an optical fiber with an output facet formed at an acute angle with respect to the fiber axis. The light delivery system is adapted to not interrupt an operation of auxiliary TEM systems responsible for changing the TEM-chamber environment.

  • Patent number: 4611789
    Abstract: Railroad rails having improved wear resistance, are produced by controlled forced cooling from above the austenite transformation temperature, to produce rails having a fine pearlite metallurgical structure in the head portions of the rails. Apparatus comprising a series of cooling headers utilizing a liquid cooling medium, such as unheated (i.e., cold, or ambient temperature) water, alternating with a series of air zones, is preferably arranged in line with the production rolling mill, to receive hot rails as they emerge from the mill, without the necessity of intervening reheating. A roller type restraint system transports the rails through the cooling apparatus, while restraining them in the appropriate position.
