  • Patent number: 11109518
    Abstract: A water-cooled motor controller includes a capacitor, a water-cooled plate, and a power module stacked in a controller housing. The power module is fixedly connected to the water-cooled plate. The water-cooled plate is provided with a cooling medium flow channel on one side facing the power module, and the other side of the water-cooling plate on which the cooling medium flow channel faces away from the power module side contacts the capacitor through an insulating and thermally conductive material for heat exchange. The water-cooled plate and the controller housing are fixedly connected to each other with a cooling medium passage provided therebetween. A cooling medium flows in from the controller housing, and then flows out of the controller housing after being heat exchanged by the water-cooled plate. The present invention utilizes upper and lower surfaces of the water-cooled plate to dissipate heat from the capacitor and the power module simultaneously.

  • Patent number: 11103462
    Abstract: The invention relates to protein nanocapsules that exhibit material properties that change in different in vivo environments. A zwitterion moiety on the surface of the nanocapsule can protect the protein from opsonization in a first environment, yet uncouples from the protein nanocapsule in a second environment (e.g. at a pH of less than 6.5). In embodiments of the invention, the uncoupled protein nanocarrier is then internalized by mammalian cells (e.g. tumor cells).

  • Patent number: 11105686
    Abstract: Due to potential sampling errors (due to small tissue samples not necessarily directly from the developing tumor) and limited optical resolution (˜1 micron), cancer may be missed or detected too late for optimal treatment, or conservative interpretation of indeterminate findings could lead to unnecessary surgery. The novel technology herein—Spatial-domain Low-coherence Quantitative Phase Microscopy (SL-QPM)—can detect structural alterations within cell nuclei with nanoscale sensitivity (0.9 nm) (or nuclear nano-morphology) for “nano-pathological diagnosis” of cancer. SL-QPM uses original, unmodified cytology and histology specimens prepared with standard clinical protocols and stains. SL-QPM can easily integrate in existing clinical pathology laboratories. Results quantified the spatial distribution of optical path length or refractive index in individual nuclei with nanoscale sensitivity, which could be applied to studying nuclear nano-morphology as cancer progresses.

  • Patent number: 11108393
    Abstract: An optical keyswitch includes a keycap, a supporting mechanism having a protrusion disposed under the keycap to support the keycap to move downward or upward, and a switch module including a circuit board, an emitter, and a receiver. The emitter and the receiver are electrically connected to the circuit board. The emitter emits an optical signal to the receiver. When the keycap is not pressed, the receiver receives the optical signal of a first intensity. When the keycap is pressed, the protrusion moves along with the keycap, and the protrusion changes the optical signal received by the receiver to have a second intensity different from the first intensity, so the switch module is triggered to generate a triggering signal.

  • Patent number: 11103164
    Abstract: Methods and systems for sensor calibration and sensor glucose (SG) fusion are used advantageously to improve the accuracy and reliability of orthogonally redundant glucose sensor devices, which may include optical and electrochemical glucose sensors. Calibration for both sensors may be achieved via fixed-offset and/or dynamic regression methodologies, depending, e.g., on sensor stability and Isig-Ratio pair correlation. For SG fusion, respective integrity checks may be performed for SG values from the optical and electrochemical sensors, and the SG values calibrated if the integrity checks are passed. Integrity checks may include checking for sensitivity loss, noise, and drift. If the integrity checks are failed, in-line sensor mapping between the electrochemical and optical sensors may be performed prior to calibration.
