  • Publication number: 20070218009
    Abstract: An aqueous soluble, lanthanide rich nanoparticle for investigative use, such as NMR, MRI, CT, PET, and GdNCT is provided. The nanoparticle is synthesized from a mixture comprising lanthanide ions and coated with a suitably selected organic ligand such that the resultant nanoparticle is soluble in aqueous solutions. A method of collecting nuclear magnetic resonance information on a sample or a subject is also provided.

  • Patent number: 5402362
    Abstract: For a given set of dyes, chosen to match a target (standard) color, by combining the a priori percent reflectance and concentration data of primary (calibration) dyeings with that of one or more trial dyeings, a calculated formulation can be obtained which agrees with one of the trial formulations used, or the average, as precisely as desired. A match, color or spectral, to a target color, near to the color of the trial dyeing in color space, is obtained that is, for all practical purposes, as accurate as those dyes permit.

  • Patent number: 4956542
    Abstract: A mirror defogger assembly having a plurality of adhesively coated elements for covering a variety of mirror shapes. Mirror heating elements are activated by means of a humidistat signaling a control module when humidity reaches a preset level. Heating elements are capable of front or rear mounting on the mirror. Humidistat signal can be electronic pulse, ultra-sound transmission, infrared beam, or radio signal. Control module operates on alternating current and has the ability to respond to manual command. Heating elements are provided with an automatic shut off sensor to prevent overheating damage.
