NEUTRON BEAM REGULATOR AND CONTAINMENT SYSTEM

Publication number: 9,269,470

Application number: 14/525,506

A neutron beam regulator has a magnetic coil configured around a neutron beam between the neutron beam source and a target. The magnetic coil may be used to contain the neutron beam and reduce the scattering of neutron. Neutrons have a magnetic moment and can be affected by exposure to magnetics fields. The magnetic coil may be used to modulate the neutron beam shape, intensity, velocity, direction and polarization. A magnetic coil may extend substantially the entire distance between a neutron beam source and a target. A magnetic coil may be a discrete magnetic coil having a separate power input and output from other magnetic coils and a plurality of discrete magnetic coils may be configured around the neutron beam. A magnetic coil may be a spiral magnetic coil and may be continuous, or extends substantially from the neutron beam source to the target.

POWERED ENTRANCE BARRIER ALARM DEVICE AND SYSTEM USING SAME

Publication number: 9,251,677

Application number: 14/304,779

A powered entrance barrier door alarm device and system is configured to alert someone of an unauthorized breach of a powered entrance barrier, such as a garage door, whereby the powered entrance barrier is opened without the use of the powered entrance barrier opener. The powered entrance barrier alarm system includes a powered entrance barrier position sensor, and a detector circuit coupled with a powered entrance barrier opener power supply. The detector circuit measures an electrical power parameter to a powered entrance barrier opener. A detector module having a controller monitors the inputs from the detector circuit and the powered entrance barrier positioning sensor to determine if an alarm should be initiated. A detector module may have an electrical plug and an electrical outlet for a powered entrance barrier opener.

DETACHABLE ARTICLE WARMER

Publication number: 9,250,029

Application number: 13/424,223

An article warmer that is detachable to and from a faucet head and utilizes diverted water is provided. In one embodiment, the article warmer comprises a warming enclosure and a heat transfer portion that conducts heat from the diverted water to the article to be heated. The heat transfer portion may be incorporated into the wall of the enclosure or may partially disconnect from the enclosure, allowing the user to wrap articles to be warmed around the heat transfer portion. In another embodiment, the heat transfer portion is configured to form the warming enclosure. Insulating, temperature indicating, and water resistant materials may be used in the construction of the article warmer.

SEGMENTED STATOR WITH CONTROLLED EDDY CURRENT

Publication number: 9,236,773

Application number: 13/969,447

An electrical machine includes a rotor with a rotational axis, a coil arranged circumferentially with respect to and fully encircling the rotational axis, and a stator assembly. The stator assembly includes first and second lamination stacks comprising associated pluralities of laminae, the stacks being arranged circumferentially with respect to the rotational axis on opposing sides of the coil for conducting magnetic flux. The stacks are configured with gaps generally radially through the laminae thereof, defining separate circumferential segments in each laminae, to prevent creating a continuous electrical circuit around the rotational axis in the segments. Each laminae has a connecting ring spaced radially from the segments, and beams connecting the segments to the ring as a unitary piece. Back return elements extend axially between the stacks to provide a flux path therebetween, and are positioned circumferentially between adjacent parts of the beams and radially between the segments and the ring.

SOLAR PANEL RISER ASSEMBLY AND WEIGHT BALANCED SOLAR PANEL ARRAY USING SAME

Publication number: 9,236,514

Application number: 14/059,394

A solar module riser assembly that is configured to allow a solar module attached thereto to fall-to-flat when not being forced into an angular position is provided. A riser assembly includes a riser support and a tube support attached to the riser support. A torque tube may extend across a plurality of riser assemblies and be retained by tube supports attached to each of the riser assemblies. A torque tube support is configured to rotate about the riser support and thereby position a solar module coupled thereto at an optimum angular orientation for solar exposure and track the sun. A first riser and second riser may be configured on opposing sides of a central drive device and lever arms attached to link bars drive tube supports when the link bar is moved. The first and second riser may be configured to create equal and opposite force on the link bar.

PORTABLE DRINKER SYSTEM

Publication number: 9,228,326

Application number: 14/065,421

A portable drinker system is configured with a convertible frame that enable a water collector to be assembled in a desired location. The portable drinker system may be configured to be carried by a single person and have suitable packed dimensions and weight for this purpose. The water collector has a canopy that is supported by the convertible frame and a drain opening to collect water. The water collector is configured to direct water collected therein to a drinker. A conduit may be coupled to a water collector and extend to drinker. A drinker comprises a water retainer that is configured for animals to drink therefrom. A convertible frame may have articulating scissor portions or integrally segmented poles or some combination thereof. The canopy may have sleeves for the insertion of poles that can be bowed to form a structure.

IMAGE RECEPTOR SUPPORT DEVICE

Application number: 13/960,577

An image receptor support device having a more comfortable patient engagement side is described. The patient engagement side has a concave central portion, a rounded left portion and rounded right portion. A patient may more comfortably position their body against the interceptor support device and more effectively position a body part over and image receptor. An image receptor support device may be configured for mammograms, for example. An image receptor support device may comprise a comfort material such as a foam or elastomer that is compressible and not cold to the touch. A concave central portion may be centrally located between the left and right side or offset. In addition, the bottom surface of the patient engagement side may be recessed from the top surface. A patient engagement side may be configured to be a detachable interface with an existing image receptor support device.

NUCLEIC ACID AMPLIFICATION BY A DESTABILIZATION METHOD

Publication number: 9,193,993

Application number: 13/789,657

The invention is directed to a method for isothermally amplifying a DNA sequence involving hybridizing a destabilizing DNA template to complementary nucleotide fragments to form a first nicked duplex; ligating the first nicked duplex to form a product duplex comprising the DNA sequence and the template, wherein the product duplex is capable of dissociating to release the DNA sequence and the template; and repeating these steps to generate multiple copies of the template and the DNA sequence. Further, the method may also involve hybridizing the DNA sequence to complementary destabilizing fragments or probes to form a second nicked duplex; ligating the second nicked duplex to form the product duplex comprising the DNA sequence and the template, wherein the product duplex dissociates to release the DNA sequence and the template; and repeating these steps to generate multiple copies of the template and the DNA sequence.
