  • Patent number: 9821061
    Abstract: One or more techniques and/or products are disclosed using a process for preparing metallic nanoparticles. Resulting nanoparticles may comprise a gold-silver-gold core-shell-shell nanoparticles. Such nanoparticles can be formed by forming a gold core, providing certain materials to form a silver shell, and providing certain materials to form a gold shell. The metallic nanoparticles may be used in molecular sensing, catalysis, photothermal therapy, and other biologically-relevant technologies.

  • Publication number: 20170252554
    Abstract: An implantable therapy lead is disclosed herein. In one embodiment, the therapy lead includes an elongated lead body and a suture sleeve. The elongated lead body has a proximal region and a distal region opposite the proximal region. The suture sleeve is supported on the lead body and has a proximal end, a distal end opposite the proximal end, an outer surface extending between the proximal end and distal end, and an inner surface radially inward of the outer surface and extending between the proximal end and distal end. The inner surface defines a lumen through which the elongated lead body extends. A helical structure helically extends about a longitudinal center axis of the lumen and along the inner surface.

  • Publication number: 20170239465
    Abstract: A therapy lead has a distal header, a helix-shaft assembly, and a ring seal. The distal header has a cylindrical passage, and the helix-shaft assembly has a shaft and a helical anchor distally extending from the shaft. The shaft extends through the cylindrical passage. The ring seal circumferentially extends about the shaft and inside the cylindrical passage. The ring seal has a proximal face, a distal face, an outer circumferential surface, an inner circumferential surface, and a side wall. The distal face is opposite the proximal face. The outer circumferential surface extends between the proximal face and distal face. The inner circumferential surface is opposite the outer circumferential surface and extends between the proximal face and distal face. The inner circumferential surface defines a center hole of the ring seal that extends between the proximal face and distal face.

  • Publication number: 20120035356
    Abstract: Compositions which inhibit corrosion and alter the physical properties of concrete (admixtures) are prepared from salt mixtures of hydroxycarboxylic acids, carboxylic acids, and nitric acid. The salt mixtures are prepared by neutralizing acid product mixtures from the oxidation of polyols using nitric acid and oxygen as the oxidizing agents. Nitric acid is removed from the hydroxycarboxylic acids by evaporation and diffusion dialysis.

  • Publication number: 20110218940
    Abstract: A parking system uses a three-dimensional magnetic field sensor as part of a vehicle detector to monitor plural parking spaces. The detector is calibrated to detect the presence or absence of a vehicle in each of the monitored spaces. The status of each space is communicated to a central controller. A pay station communicates with a central controller when a parking interval has been purchased. The controller may warn customers when the interval is about to expire and law enforcement when it has expired.

  • Publication number: 20070163127
    Abstract: A power drive handle for a handheld tool includes a case with an opening in its nose. A drive motor and a carriage are disposed in the case interior. A drive train located in the interior interconnects the carriage to the motor so that the motor reciprocates the carriage. The carriage is adapted to releasably mount the tool handle so that the tool element thereof projects through the nose opening. A wing extension projects longitudinally forwardly of the nose adjacent to the tool opening. A detachable access panel allows the user to insert and remove the handheld tool. The case can have a compartment to receive batteries for powering the motor. The carriage may be trough-shaped and can be slideably mounted in a longitudinal slideway secured in the casing. The tool element may, for example, be a poker or a saw.

The rim edge may have a first edge portion on a first lateral side so as to form forming a first cutting edge with a first cutting characteristic, a second edge portion on a second lateral side so as to form forming a second cutting edge with a second cutting characteristic, and a third edge portion extending transversely of the longitudinal axis to form a third cutting edge. The scoop portion may be rotatably supported on the handle portion. The handle portion may have a proximal portion supporting the scoop and a flattened distal portion offset from the proximal portion. A transverse ridge may be located proximately to the scoop portion.
