  • Patent number: 11412716
    Abstract: A floating breakwater and wind energy integrated system used for offshore aquaculture. The system contains the wind turbine system, the floating breakwater system, and offshore aquaculture system. The combination of wind turbine, floating breakwater system and offshore aquaculture system makes full use of the floating breakwater, thus decrease the wave load on the floating cage. In addition, the floating breakwater offers a supporting platform to the floating wind turbine, which effectively reduces the costs of the wind turbine. Meanwhile, a power autarkic offshore aquaculture system may be realized by using the electrical energy generated by the turbine. Compared with the simple offshore aquaculture system, the utilization rate of the sea per unit becomes even higher while the costs of the floating wind turbine becomes even lower.

  • Patent number: 11406957
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to processes for suspending stretched nucleic acids over surface features. These processes can be used to prepare stretched nucleic acids that are more active in enzymatic reactions and other reactions than those laid down on a flat surface. These processes can be achieved by using a photoresist layer on top of a substrate, stretch a nucleic acid on top of the surface, and then remove part of the photoresist to form surface features that suspend the stretched nucleic acid. Furthermore, the formation of a hydrogel layer over the stretched nucleic acid and the surface features can transfer the stretched nucleic acid to the hydrogel for further reactions, including enzymatic reactions.

  • Patent number: 11408823
    Abstract: Terahertz spectrum measurement method and system based on an unequal optical path method is provided. By using a Femtosecond laser and a Terahertz time-domain spectroscopy system, samples to be measured and having different thicknesses are subjected to scanning by time-domain Terahertz signals to obtain transmission signals of the samples with two different thicknesses. The signal after passing through a sample with the thickness of d1 is a reference signal, and the signal after passing through a sample with the thickness of d2 is a sample signal. When Terahertz waves are normally incident to the samples and having different thicknesses, the signals emitted from the samples have an optical path difference therebetween. Phase-containing frequency spectra are obtained after time-domain signals are subjected to Fourier transform. The parameters, such as a refractive index, an extinction coefficient, and an absorption coefficient, can be calculated through the extracted phase-containing frequency spectrums.

  • Patent number: 11409721
    Abstract: In accordance with an embodiment, the system enables access to a sharded database using a cache and a shard topology. A shard-aware client application connecting to a sharded database can use a connection pool (e.g., a Universal Connection Pool, UCP), to store or access connections to different shards or chunks of the sharded database within a shared pool. As new connections are created, a shard topology layer can be built at the database driver layer, which learns and caches shard key ranges to locations of shards. The shard topology layer enables subsequent connection requests from a client application to use a fast key path access to the appropriate shard or chunk.
