  • Publication number: 20210023250
    Abstract: A sterilization, disinfection, sanitization, or decontamination system having a chamber defining a region, and a generator for creating a free radical effluent with reactive oxygen, nitrogen, and other species and/or a vaporizer. A closed loop circulating system without a free-radical destroyer is provided for supplying the mixture of free radicals from the generator mixed with the hydrogen peroxide solution in the form of the effluent to the chamber. The system is used in sterilizing, disinfecting, sanitizing, or decontaminating items in the chamber or room and, with a wound chamber, in treating wounds on a body. The wound chamber may be designed to maintain separation from wounds being treated. Various embodiments can control moisture to reduce or avoid unwanted condensation. Some embodiments can be incorporated into an appliance having a closed space, such as a washing machine. Some embodiments may include a residual coating device that deposits a bactericidal coating on sterilized items.

  • Publication number: 20190387856
    Abstract: A hair styling appliance includes first and second heating plates operatively connected for pivotal displacement relative to one another such that a hair segment positioned between them can be styled. A glide-speed sensing system generates an output having a relation to a speed with which the hair segment is displaced relative to the first and second heating plates. A glide-speed indicating system can communicate feedback to a user, based on the output, such as an indication of a glide speed of the hair styling appliance relative to the associated hair segment. A user input device can receive an input from the user regarding a hair-type classification and/or a hair-condition classification and generate a hair-related output having a relation to the input from the user.

  • Patent number: 10275547
    Abstract: Methods and systems are presented for evaluating performance of a finite or infinite antenna array including a finite number of antennas. Typically, a model is generated for the antenna array, the model including an arbitrarily large antenna array with an arbitrarily large number of model antennas. Each model antenna has features defined by features of antennas of the finite or infinite antenna array. A unit cell is determined for the arbitrarily large antenna, and impedance matrices Zantenna and Zperiodic are computed, Zperiodic representing interactions among the unit cell and the other model antennas. From these matrices, the performance of the finite or infinite antenna array is assessed.
