  • Publication number: 20210077799
    Abstract: The present invention provides a spray deposition system which comprises a syringe attachment device having a specific adaptor. The adaptor has at least three openings being in fluid connection with each other, wherein at least one first opening of the adaptor is connectable to a needle in a liquid-tight manner, at least one second opening of the adaptor is in fluid connection with surrounding air and at least one third opening of the adaptor is connected to a tube configured to deliver an air flow in a reversible and air-tight manner. Thereby, a connection to a needle is possible in a reversible and liquid-tight manner without having to pierce the tube of the system like in prior art solutions. This provokes that no tube material may clog the needle and no air may leak from the tube. Furthermore, an attachment of the needle to the spray deposition system may be performed faster and safer and alignment of the needle is facilitated.

  • Patent number: 10906053
    Abstract: Systems and methods for spraying a liquid treatment solution include a syringe attachment device and a handheld device. The syringe attachment device can be configured to secure a syringe containing the liquid treatment solution. The handheld device can have a movable slide configured to dispense the treatment solution from the syringe. The spray deposition system can include a cover' positioned to provide an impervious barrier between at least a portion of the syringe attachment device and the handheld device. The cover can be attached to the syringe attachment device prior to coupling the devices together. In an example, the cover can have a generally tubular shape with a closed end and an open end. The handheld device can be inserted into the cover and the cover can enclose the handheld device in the assembled position. In an example, the cover can be sterile and at least a portion of the syringe attachment device can be sterile.

  • Patent number: 10893906
    Abstract: A laser system may include a controller configured to direct a plurality of temporally spaced-apart electrical pulses to a device that optically pumps a lasing medium, and a lasing medium configured to output a quasi-continuous laser pulse in response to the optical pumping. The plurality of temporally spaced-apart electrical pulses may include (a) a first electrical pulse configured to excite the lasing medium to an energy level below a lasing threshold of the lasing medium, and (b) multiple second electrical pulses following the first electrical pulse. The quasi-continuous laser pulse is output in response to the multiple second electrical pulses.

  • Patent number: 10742403
    Abstract: A vehicle includes a controller. The controller is configured to send a nonce encrypted according to a symmetric encryption key. The nonce is sent responsive to receiving a pair request over a personal area network from a nomadic device outside the vehicle. The controller is further configured to initialize a secure connection using a random key and permit vehicle access according to data received via the secure connection. The initialization is responsive to receiving a concatenation of the random key and an incrementation of the nonce encrypted with the symmetric encryption key.

  • Patent number: 10468164
    Abstract: The invention describes electrically conductive shaped bodies with an inherent positive temperature coefficient (PTC), produced from a composition which contains at least one organic matrix polymer (compound component A), at least one submicroscale or nanoscale, electrically conductive additive (compound component B) and at least one phase-change material with a phase-transition temperature in the range from ?42° C. to +150° C. (compound component D). The phase-change material is incorporated into an organic network (compound component C). The electrically conductive shaped body with an inherent PTC effect is, in particular, a filament, a fibre, a spun-bonded web, a foam, a film, a foil or an injection-moulded article. The switching point for the PTC behavior is dependent on the type and also the phase-conversion temperature of the phase-change material. By way of example, a self-regulating surface heater in the form of a film, foil and/or textile can be realized in this way.
