  • Patent number: 8420433
    Abstract: A method is provided of forming a light sensing arrangement for use in a light sensor. The method comprises tiling a plurality of individual light sensing elements on a carrier, each element having a notch formed in an edge thereof, the notch being adapted to provide space, when the elements are tiled together, for an electrical connection to be made between the carrier and a surface of the element arranged to faced away from the carrier. Each element may comprise Silicon Photomultiplier (SPM) circuitry.

  • Patent number: 6655054
    Abstract: An attachment for a prime mover or backhoe which may be used to cut or crush material. The attachment includes a first jaw, being a fixed jaw, and a second jaw being a free jaw which is pivotably connected to the fixed jaw, and at least three connectors which allow the attachment to be connected to the actuator arm of a prime mover or backhoe. These connectors include a head connector adapted to provide a connection to the head of the actuator arm, and a driven connector adapted to provide a connection to the driving beam of the backhoes actuator arm, and a strut connector adapted to provide a connection to the strut of the backhoes actuator. The head and driven connectors are associated with the fixed jaw and the strut connector is associated with the free jaw, where the head and driven connectors are connected to the prime mover or backhoe with a quickhitch.

  • Patent number: 5692247
    Abstract: The disclosure herein describes an apparatus for recovering kinetic energy in a free flowing water stream and converting it into useful energy; it comprises a body (22) immerged in a stream, the body defining a duct having an intake side (26) and a discharge side (27). The discharge side is equipped with a deflector (30) which flares outwardly for obstructing the flow of water around the duct to thereby create a negative pressure drag on water being impelled as it is being discharged from the duct. The deflectors flare outwardly at an angle varying from 75.degree. to 160.degree. as measured from the longitudinal axis of the duct.
