  • Patent number: 11214326
    Abstract: A portable conveyance footrest has a support portion having a substantially planar base surface to receive a foot. A tow handle portion is connected to an end of the support portion and forms a substantially planar tow handle that is within a same plane as the substantially planar base surface. The tow handle is spaced apart from the end of the support portion to define a void between the tow handle and the second end of the support portion. The tow handle is disposed within the same plane as the substantially planar base surface so that a user's fingers, when gripping the tow handle, extend into the void between the tow handle and the end of the support portion and through the plane of the substantially planar surface.

  • Publication number: 20210125826
    Abstract: Systems and methods for growth of silicon carbide over a layer comprising graphene and/or hexagonal boron nitride, and related articles, are generally described. In some embodiments, a SiC film is fabricated over a layer comprising graphene and/or hexagonal boron nitride, which in turn is disposed over a substrate. The layer and/or the substrate may be lattice-matched with the SiC film to reduce defect density in the SiC film. The fabricated SiC film may then be removed from the substrate via, for example, a stressor attached to the SiC film. In certain cases, the layer serves as a reusable platform for growing SiC films and also serves a release layer that allows fast, precise, and repeatable release at the layer surface.
