Reinhold H. Dauskardt 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: 10636632
    Abstract: Improved deposition of optoelectronically active perovskite materials is provided with a two step process. In the first step, precursors are deposited on a substrate. In the second step, the deposited precursors are exposed to an atmospheric pressure plasma which efficiently cures the precursors to provide the desired perovskite thin film. The resulting films can have excellent optical properties combined with superior mechanical properties.

  • Publication number: 20190192326
    Abstract: In one aspect, an obesity treatment device includes multiple inflatable space-filling compartments and a valve system for introducing fluid into each compartment, where the device forms, upon filing the compartments, to a curved shape conforming to a natural three-dimensional kidney shape of the stomach. In one aspect, a method for deploying a gastric balloon structure in a gastric cavity includes determining dimensions of the gastric cavity in a feeding state, selecting a fill volume for each of a number of isolated chambers of the balloon structure, and filling each chamber while the balloon structure is in the gastric cavity. In one aspect, a system for treating obesity includes a means for conforming a flexible, space-filling structure to a natural kidney shape of the gastric cavity, a means for maintaining at least two isolated inflatable regions of the flexible, space-filling structure, and a means for introducing fluid into each inflatable region.

  • Publication number: 20180360669
    Abstract: Devices, bandages, kits and methods are described that can control or regulate the mechanical environment of a wound to ameliorate scar and/or keloid formation. The mechanical environment of a wound includes stress, strain, and any combination of stress and strain. The control of a wound's mechanical environment can be active, passive, dynamic, or static. The devices are configured to be removably secured to a skin surface in proximity to the wound site and shield the wound from endogenous and/or exogenous stress.

  • Publication number: 20180286998
    Abstract: Mechanical scaffolds within optoelectronic devices are provided to enhance the overall thermomechanical and chemical stability of these devices. For example, extremely fragile perovskite solar cells were reinforced by scaffolding in the following way: following printing, the scaffold was sequentially filled with an electron (hole) transport layer, photoactive perovskite semiconductor, a hole (electron) transport layer, and finally capped with a top electrode. The scaffold provided structural reinforcement to the fragile perovskite layer and inhibited crack formation in the layer that would lead to device failure.
