  • Publication number: 20230027292
    Abstract: Described herein are amorphous fluorinated copolymers produced by the polymerization of one or more fluorinated ring monomers and one or more fluorinated comonomers containing multiple ether oxygens. The copolymers are suitable in many high-technology applications, such as optical fibers, anti-reflection coatings, protective coatings, and gas separation membranes. In one aspect, the copolymers are useful is in the field of membrane-based gas separation processes. In one aspect, amorphous copolymer is produced by polymerizing (a) one or more fluorinated ring monomers in the amount of 1 mol % to 99.5 mol %, wherein the fluorinated ring monomer is at least a five membered ring and (b) a comonomer in the amount of from 0.5 mol % to 99 mol %, wherein the comonomer comprises a fluorinated compound with two or more ether oxygens.

  • Patent number: 11555956
    Abstract: A polymer optical fiber is provided which shows improved hydrolytic stability. This fiber comprises a polymeric optical core and cladding layer, surrounded by a polymeric overcladding layer which comprises a miscible blend of one or more hydrolytically stable amorphous polymers. By varying the ratios of the component polymers in the overcladding blend, the glass transition temperature and the coefficient of thermal expansion of the overcladding layer may be tuned to optimize the attenuation and bandwidth of the plastic optical fiber.

  • Publication number: 20220414807
    Abstract: Aspects of distributed ledger technology are leveraged to verify subrogation settlements. In particular, two parties to a subrogation claim provide cryptographic hashes to a subrogation demand smart contract stored at an address on a blockchain. The subrogation demand smart contract determines that the parties have reached an agreement by determining that the cryptographic hashes match. A settlement amount from the subrogation claim may be appended to a set of settlement amounts to determine a net settlement amount to facilitate a single payment between the parties on a periodic basis, such as daily, to alleviate the need for the parties to send or receive a payment for each individual settlement amount.

  • Publication number: 20220412949
    Abstract: A composition having one or more nanoneedles is provided, where each nanoneedle has a silver tip and one or more of the silver tips comprise an AgCl layer. In one approach, one or more of the silver tips further include a layer of thiol-polyethylene glycol. A method of resistive pulse detection involving a protein pore is also provided. The method involves reconstituting one or more protein pores in a lipid membrane formed on the tip of a nanoneedle, then applying a potential across the membrane and detecting resistive pulses.

  • Publication number: 20220403083
    Abstract: Described herein are articles for separating gases. The article includes an amorphous fluorinated copolymer containing, one or more types of fluorinated dioxolane ring monomers, and one or more types of fluorinated non-dioxolane ring monomers, optionally with crosslinking between the fluorinated copolymer chains. The copolymers of fluorinated dioxolane ring monomers and fluorinated non-dioxolane ring monomers show a large differential in the permeability of certain gases compared with other gases. The resulting polymer membranes have superior selectivity and reliability performance in certain gas separations compared with previous compositions known to the art.

  • Patent number: 11528042
    Abstract: A transmitting circuit. In some embodiment, the transmitting circuit includes a slot antenna and an amplifier. The slot antenna may include a slot in a conductive sheet, and it may have a first resonant frequency, the first resonant frequency being within 20% of a slot frequency which is between a first frequency corresponding, in a first volume, to a wavelength twice the length of the slot, and a second frequency corresponding, in a second volume, to a wavelength twice the length of the slot. The amplifier may be connected to the slot through a connection including a conductive path, between the amplifier and the slot, having a length less than 0.2 times the length of the slot. The magnitude of the output impedance of the amplifier may be less than 0.25 times the magnitude of the impedance of the slot antenna at a first resonant frequency.
