  • Patent number: 10821081
    Abstract: An apparatus configured to result in a penetration of one or more gasses into a dermis of biological skin, wherein the apparatus includes a fluid reservoir configured to contain an amount of a liquid in contact with a portion of a person's skin, and a nanobubble generator configured to inject nanobubbles into the liquid, wherein the nanobubbles contain the one or more gasses. The contact of the liquid containing the nanobubbles with the person's skin results in a cutaneous uptake of a gas contained in the nanobubbies into the person's skin, which may be beneficial in treating an ailment, such as diabetic peripheral neuropathy.

  • Patent number: 9730333
    Abstract: A solution of metal ink is mixed and then printed or dispensed onto the substrate using the dispenser. The film then is dried to eliminate water or solvents. In some cases, a thermal curing step can be introduced subsequent to dispensing the film and prior to the photo-curing step. The substrate and deposited film can be cured using an oven or by placing the substrate on the surface of a heater, such as a hot plate. Following the drying and/or thermal curing step, a laser beam or focused light from the light source is directed onto the surface of the film in a process known as direct writing. The light serves to photo-cure the film such that it has low resistivity.

  • Patent number: 9131610
    Abstract: A layer of material having a low thermal conductivity is coated over a substrate. A film of conductive ink is then coated over the layer of material having the low thermal conductivity, and then sintered. The film of conductive ink does not absorb as much energy from the sintering as the film of conductive ink coated over the layer of material having the low thermal conductivity. The layer of material having the low thermal conductivity may be a polymer, such as polyimide.

  • Publication number: 20150201504
    Abstract: Conductive patterns are formed using formulations containing metallic particles, which may be copper. These metallic particles may be coated with a binder material that improves adhesion during photosintering of the formulations. The binder contains chemistry suitable for it to be removed from the particles in a separate process such as drying or thermal sintering. The coating is a non-volatile organic compound attached to the metallic particles with a minimum thickness oxide coating. The organic coating improves a coefficient of thermal expansion value match between the metallic particles and the substrate, which may be polymeric.
