  • Patent number: 10517988
    Abstract: Provided is tunable biopolymer hydrogel produced from two processed natural polysaccharides for use as a hemostat. If desired, the hydrogel formation can be tuned so that the hydrogel forms within seconds when applied to a tissue lesion. The resulting hydrogel can adhere to tissue and, without swelling, produce hemostasis within seconds after application to tissue of interest. The hydrogel also captures, aggregates and concentrates platelets and red blood cells at the site of the tissue lesion thereby initiating a clotting cascade at the site of the lesion. The hemostat can be used to prevent blood loss during surgical procedures, for example, during brain, spine or other surgical procedures where hemostasis is desirable, and is particularly useful during surgical procedures where swelling of the hemostat (e.g., in the brain or spine) would be detrimental to the subject.

  • Patent number: 9238977
    Abstract: A turbine shroud apparatus for a gas turbine engine having a centerline axis includes: a shroud segment having: an arcuate body extending axially between forward and aft ends and laterally between opposed end faces, wherein each of the end faces includes seal slots formed therein; and an arcuate stationary seal member mounted to the body; a turbine vane disposed axially aft of the shroud segment; and a casing surrounding the shroud segment and the turbine vane; wherein the turbine vane is mounted to the case so as to bear against the stationary seal member, compressing it and forcing the shroud segment radially outward against the casing.

  • Publication number: 20080092938
    Abstract: One-dimensional nanostructures having uniform diameters of less than approximately 200 nm. These inventive nanostructures, which we refer to as “nanowires”, include single-crystalline homostructures as well as heterostructures of at least two single-crystalline materials having different chemical compositions. Because single-crystalline materials are used to form the heterostructure, the resultant heterostructure will be single-crystalline as well. The nanowire heterostructures are generally based on a semiconducting wire wherein the doping and composition are controlled in either the longitudinal or radial directions, or in both directions, to yield a wire that comprises different materials. Examples of resulting nanowire heterostructures include a longitudinal heterostructure nanowire (LOHN) and a coaxial heterostructure nanowire (COHN).

  • Patent number: 5233540
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for reducing repetitive vibrations in a region or structure by applying a plurality of control vibrations via a plurality of actuators (13) located in the region or structure (11) and cyclically updating the control vibrations to improve the reduction of the repetitive vibrations are disclosed. The repetitive vibrations are sensed (14) at a plurality of locations in the region or structure and decomposed into a number of frequency components. Next, a first estimate of each control vibration, formed of the same frequency components, that together will reduce the sensed vibrations is made. Each first control vibration estimate is applied to the region or structure via an actuator (13). Thereafter, each control vibration is cyclically updated to improve the reduction of the sensed vibrations whether or not changes occur in the repetitive vibrations, the region or structure (11), or the apparatus used to carry out the method of the invention.
