  • Patent number: 11070248
    Abstract: Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology exploits modulated coded impulses over a wide frequency spectrum with very low power over a short distance for digital data transmission. Today's leading edge modulated sinusoidal wave wireless communication standards and systems achieve power efficiencies of 50 nJ/bit employing narrowband signaling schemes and traditional RF transceiver architectures. However, such designs severely limit the achievable energy efficiency, especially at lower data rates such as below 1 Mbps. Further, it is important that peak power consumption is supportable by common battery or energy harvesting technologies and long term power consumption neither leads to limited battery lifetimes or an inability for alternate energy sources to sustain them. Accordingly, it would be beneficial for next generation applications to exploit inventive transceiver structures and communication schemes in order to achieve the sub nJ per bit energy efficiencies required by next generation applications.

  • Patent number: 10765770
    Abstract: Articles can be provided with odor resistance by applying a dispersion of a halogenated heterocyclic N-halamine in an inert liquid carrier onto the surface of the article and allowing the inert liquid carrier to penetrate into it. The N-halamine accordingly becomes deposited on the surface of the article after the inert liquid carrier penetrates into the article. This method can be used to provide odor resistance to a variety of substrates, including garbage bags. It can also be used to deposit other functional particulates onto the surface of substrates having sufficient porosity to take up the vehicle. For instance, such functional particles can be oxidants that display antimicrobial and/or enzyme inhibitory efficacy or particles having toxin interaction potentials through oxidative degradation or adsorption of toxic substances in air and/or water, such as fluoride uptake by metal oxide microparticles.

  • Patent number: 10723930
    Abstract: Viscoelastic fluid compositions are provided that have improved properties for suspending particulate active ingredients. Methods for forming the compositions are also provided. The compositions preferably have a non-Newtonian behavior, so that the viscosity of the composition at low shear rates is suitable for keeping solid particles in the form of a stable suspension while also providing a reduced viscosity at higher shear rates (such as a substantially reduced or minimized viscosity) to allow for pumping, tank mixing, and/or distribution of the composition, for instance by spraying.

  • Patent number: 10669435
    Abstract: A process for producing an antibacterial coating composition for implants. The process includes the steps i) reaction of a monomer A which is based on (meth)acrylic acid and contains at least one epoxide with a polyguanidine by reaction of an amino group of the polyguanidine with the epoxide to give a (meth)acrylic acid-polyguanidine macromolecule and ii) polymerization of the (meth)acrylic acid-polyguanidine macromolecule with a monomer B which contains at least one polymerizable double bond and at least one phosphonate group by free-radical polymerization of the (meth)acrylic acid unit and the double bond.

  • Patent number: 10660331
    Abstract: Disclosed are pressurized surface treatment compositions which impart a microbicidal benefit to treated surfaces which compositions comprise (or in certain preferred embodiments may consist essentially of, or may consist of): a zinc ion source material which releases zinc ions into the treatment composition, preferably a source of Zn++ ions, at least lower alkyl aliphatic monohydric alcohol which independently of other constituents present exhibits a microbicidal effect, a propellant; and, water. The compositions may further optionally include one or more further optional constituents such as a detersive surfactant and/or minor amounts of one or more constituents which impart one or more advantageous technical or aesthetic benefits to the compositions, including one or more detersive surfactants wherein the compositions have pH of at least 5.
