  • Publication number: 20170062645
    Abstract: The present invention includes a method for biomimetic-inspired infrared sensors utilizing a bottom up approach. This method includes providing a sinusoidal alternating electrical field between a preformed electrode gap comprising two gold micro-electrodes. Providing single needles of zinc phosphide crystals optimized for growth conditions using a physical vapour transport. Immobilizing at least one individual zinc phosphide nanowire in the preformed electrode gap using dielectrophoretic manipulation. And, placing and contacting the at least one individual zinc phosphide nanowire in the preformed electrode gap. Two nanowires are combined to form a lambda shape for improved sensing.

  • Patent number: 9057044
    Abstract: The present invention describes a laminar flow bioreactor with improved laminar flow lines of fluids. The bioreactor housing defines a chamber adapted to receive a scaffold. An inlet aperture at one end of the chamber is in fluid communication with an outlet aperture at the opposite end of the chamber. A bypass mechanism selectively operable from an open position to a closed position consisting of an iris assembly directs a portion of fluid flowing through the chamber around the scaffold-receiving area. This bioreactor is inserted in a bioreactor system.

  • Publication number: 20090211415
    Abstract: The present invention generally relates to certain novel methods of chopping onions, while avoiding (or reducing) exposure to syn-propanethial-S-oxide gas emitted from such onions. In certain embodiments, the methods generally comprise placing an onion on a cutting platform, applying heat to the cutting platform or the air surrounding the cutting platform, and applying a vacuum pressure to the air surrounding the cutting platform. In certain specific embodiments, the methods generally comprise (a) placing a cutting platform sufficiently near a heat source and ventilation hood such that air directly above the cutting platform increases in temperature and exhibits a vacuum force towards the ventilation hood when the heat source and ventilation hood are activated, (b) activating the heat source and ventilation hood, and (c) cutting the onion on the cutting platform.
