ABSTRACT A plurality of stimulations is transmitted to tissue or other material using one or more transmitters. The plurality of signals associated with the excited tissue and the transmitted stimulations are measured. The measured signals are processed to generate field-related quantities, such as B1+ and/or MR signal maps. Field-related quantities are generated also from simulation, by calculating the one or more incident fields from a simulator model of the one or more transmitters and assuming a given distribution of electrical properties in the tissue or other material. Field-related quantities generated from simulation and experimental procedures are compared to each other. The assumed electrical properties distribution is updated and the procedure is repeated iteratively until the difference between simulated and experimental field-related quantities is smaller than a threshold.

ABSTRACT Systems and method for performing X-ray computed tomography (CT) that can improve spectral separation and decrease motion artifacts without increasing radiation dose are provided. The systems and method can be used with either a kVp-switching source or a single-kVp source. When used with a kVp-switching source, an absorption grating and a filter grating can be disposed between the X-ray source and the sample to be imaged. Relative motion of the filter and absorption gratings can by synchronized to the kVp switching frequency of the X-ray source. When used with a single-kVp source, a combination of absorption and filter gratings can be used and can be driven in an oscillation movement that is optimized for a single-kVp X-ray source. With a single-kVp source, the absorption grating can also be omitted and the filter grating can remain stationary.

ABSTRACT Nanosecond pulsed electric field (nsPEF) treatments of a tumor are adjusted based on a size and type of the tumor to stimulate an immune response against the tumor and other tumors in the subject. Calreticulin expression on tumor cells can be detected to confirm treatment. An immune response biomarker can be measured, and further nsPEF treatments can be performed if needed to stimulate or further stimulate the immune response. Cancers that have metastasized may be treated by directly treating a tumor that is most accessible. The treatment can be combined with CD47-blocking antibodies, doxorubicin, CTLA-4-blocking antibodies, and/or PD-1-blocking antibodies. Electrical characteristics of nsPEF treatments can be based on the size, type, and/or strength of tumors and/or a quantity of tumors in the subject.

ABSTRACT A system for planning and performing a repeat interventional procedure includes a registration device (116) and an image generation device (120) which map current targets in a reference image (104) for a first interventional procedure to at least one guidance image (112) acquired from a different imaging modality. Biopsy locations are recorded to the guidance images during the first interventional procedure and the biopsy locations are mapped to the reference image to provide a planning image for use in a subsequent interventional procedure on the patient. In a subsequent interventional procedure, the prior planning image (124) may be registered to a current reference image (126) and the prior biopsy locations and prior and current targets are mapped to a guidance image acquired from a different imaging modality. Biopsy locations are then mapped to the guidance image (115) and mapped back to the current reference image.

ABSTRACT Provided herein are methods of nerve blockage, for example for treatment of obesity, heart failure, cardiovascular disease, muscle spasms, chronic pain, or urinary retention in a patient. The method comprises first heating a nerve above physiological temperature (e.g. 37° C. in a human), such as from 43° C. to 54° C. for a duration that leads to reversible nerve blockage as opposed to nerve damage. Second, reversible nerve blockage is produced by cooling the nerve below physiological temperature to a temperature in which reversible nerve blockage is achieved, for example from 15° C. to 30° C.

ABSTRACT The present invention relates to therapeutic ADCs comprising SN-38 attached to an anti-Trop-2 antibody or antigen-binding antibody fragment. The ADC may be administered at a dosage of between 4 mg/kg and 18 mg/kg, preferably 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 16 or 18 mg/kg, most preferably 8 to 10 mg/kg. When administered at specified dosages and schedules, the ADC can reduce solid tumors in size, reduce or eliminate metastases and is effective to treat cancers resistant to standard therapies, such as radiation therapy, chemotherapy or immunotherapy. Preferably, the ADC is administered in combination with one or more other therapeutic agents, such as a PARP inhibitor, a microtubule inhibitor, a Bruton kinase inhibitor or a PI3K inhibitor. Most preferably, the ADC is of use for treating a Trop-2 expressing cancer, such as metastatic urothelial cancer.

When administered at specified dosages and schedules, the immunoconjugate can reduce solid tumors in size, reduce or eliminate metastases and is effective to treat cancers resistant to standard therapies, such as radiation therapy, chemotherapy or immunotherapy. Surprisingly, the immunoconjugate is effective to treat cancers that are refractory to or relapsed from irinotecan.

ABSTRACT The present invention generally relates to microfluidics and labeled nucleic acids. For example, certain aspects are generally directed to systems and methods for labeling nucleic acids within microfluidic droplets. In one set of embodiments, the nucleic acids may include “barcodes” or unique sequences that can be used to distinguish nucleic acids in a droplet from those in another droplet, for instance, even after the nucleic acids are pooled together. In some cases, the unique sequences may be incorporated into individual droplets using particles and attached to nucleic acids contained within the droplets (for example, released from lysed cells). In some cases, the barcodes may be used to distinguish tens, hundreds, or even thousands of nucleic acids, e.g., arising from different cells or other sources.

ABSTRACT A highly efficient, Z-selective ring-closing metathesis system for the formation of macrocycles using a stereoretentive, ruthenium-based catalyst supported by a dithiolate ligand is reported. This catalyst is demonstrated to be remarkably active as observed in initiation experiments showing complete catalyst initiation at −20° C. within 10 min. Using easily accessible diene starting materials bearing a Z-olefin moiety, macrocyclization reactions generated products with significantly higher Z-selectivity in appreciably shorter reaction times, in higher yield, and with much lower catalyst loadings than in previously reported systems. Macrocyclic lactones ranging in size from twelve-membered to seventeen-membered rings are synthesized in moderate to high yields (68-79% yield) with excellent Z-selectivity (95%-99% Z).

ABSTRACT A protein construct including a gene encoding a light-sensitive protein fused to at least one of either a low complexity sequence, an intrinsically disordered protein region (IDR), or a repeating sequence of a linker and another gene encoding a light-sensitive protein. Among the many different possibilities contemplated, the protein construct may also advantageously include cleavage tags. This protein construct may be utilized for a variety of functions, including a method for protein purification, which requires introducing the protein construct into a living cell, and inducing the formation of clusters by irradiating the construct with light. The method may also advantageously include cleaving a target protein from an IDR, and separating the clusters via centrifuge. A kit for practicing in vivo aggregation or liquid-liquid phase separation is also included, the kit including the protein construct and a light source capable of producing a wavelength that the light-sensitive protein will respond to.

ABSTRACT The present disclosure relates to a persistent data structure employed as a tree structure with a frequent pattern mining paradigm. The number of nodes in the tree structure scales linearly with respect to the number unique items within the itemsets associated with the nodes. With the disclosed pattern mining paradigm, compressed representations of maximal patterns may be mined with the goal of detecting a frequent maximal pattern covers in a top down approach. Thus, large patterns are detected before their subsets yielding a significant reduction in computation time. The persistent data structure is a dynamic data structure which may be updated to add or delete nodes or transactional information without the need for recreating the entire tree structure. Furthermore, the persistent data structure may be run by a computing system either locally or on a parallelized distributed computing architecture to increase operational performance.

ABSTRACT Disclosed herein are methods and systems for the identification and characterization of perivascular spaces in the cerebral vasculature using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data. The disclosed methods allow for automated and unbiased quantification of enlarged perivascular space (ePVS) in a subject, and thus can provide a substantial improvement over manual grading methods used in the art. An example method includes receiving an MRI dataset including voxels having intensity values, identifying a set of candidate voxels within the MRI dataset based on the intensity values; grouping the set of candidate voxels into a set of first clusters; filtering the set of first clusters to generate a set of second clusters; and filtering the set of second clusters based on a morphologic constraint, thereby identifying an enlarged perivascular space in the MRI dataset.

ABSTRACT An interactive augmented reality system for simulating medical procedures for pediatric disease education includes a plush toy having one or more patches disposed on a body of the plush toy in one or more corresponding locations each associated with an area of the body of the plush toy that is comparable to an area of a human body. An interactive medical procedure simulation logic section operable within a mobile device causes a particular patch within a series of live images to be scanned, and initiates an interactive augmented reality experience to simulate a medical procedure for pediatric disease education. Comfort is provided to children struggling with a disease. Children learn how to manage their chronic illness by enabling them to practice their medical procedures and receive feedback related to correct and incorrect care. A low-cost disease education delivery mechanism is provided directly to children through game-play.

ABSTRACT An electrokinetically pumped sheath flow nanospray interface for capillary electrophoresis coupled to negative mode electrospray mass spectrometer is described. At this interface, application of an electric field generates electro-osmotic flow at the interior of a glass emitter having an orifice. Electroosmotic flow pumps liquid around the distal tip of the separation capillary, ensheathing analyte into the electrospray electrolyte. In negative ion mode, negative potential applied to an untreated emitter drives sheath flow away from the emitter orifice, decreasing the stability and efficiency of the spray. In contrast, when the interior of the electrospray emitter is grafted with aminoalkylsilanes, the amines have a positive charge, which reverses electroosmosis and generates stable sheath flow to the emitter orifice under negative potential. Limits of detection were about 150 to 900 attomoles injected. Negative mode operation was demonstrated by analyzing a metabolite extract from stage 1 Xenopus laevis embryos.

ABSTRACT A highly efficient, Z-selective ring-closing metathesis system for the formation of macrocycles using a stereoretentive, ruthenium-based catalyst supported by a dithiolate ligand is reported. This catalyst is demonstrated to be remarkably active as observed in initiation experiments showing complete catalyst initiation at −20° C. within 10 min. Using easily accessible diene starting materials bearing a Z-olefin moiety, macrocyclization reactions generated products with significantly higher Z-selectivity in appreciably shorter reaction times, in higher yield, and with much lower catalyst loadings than in previously reported systems. Macrocyclic lactones ranging in size from twelve-membered to seventeen-membered rings are synthesized in moderate to high yields (68-79% yield) with excellent Z-selectivity (95%-99% Z).

ABSTRACT A system and method for reversibly controlling clustering of proteins around an engineered multivalent nucleus is disclosed. The system and method utilize clustering, which may be controlled by light activation or deactivation. The system and method enable the spatiotemporal control of protein supramolecular assemblies, including liquid-like droplets under some conditions, and solid-like gels under other conditions. The system and method can be utilized for segregating or locally concentrating desired proteins and/or RNA in cells or cell lysate, which may be useful for protein purification purposes, or for assembling single or multiple membraneless bodies within specific sub-regions of the cells. These synthetically assembled bodies may recruit both transgenic and endogenic proteins and other biomolecules, thus can be linked to affect and even trigger a plethora of cellular processes, including both physiological and pathological (e.g., protein aggregation) processes.

ABSTRACT A bleed valve includes a housing with an inlet coupled to an outlet by a duct. A guide tube is fixed within the housing between the inlet and the outlet. A piston with a piston orifice is slideably supported on the guide tube and movable between an open position and a closed position. The duct fluidly couples the inlet to the outlet in the open position, the duct fluidly separates the inlet from the outlet in the closed position, and the piston orifice fluidly couples the inlet with the outlet in the open position and the closed position to move piston between the open position and the closed position according to differential in pressure between the inlet and the outlet of the bleed valve. Compressors, gas turbine engines, and methods of controlling fluid flow are also described.

ABSTRACT A plasma plate is used to minimize drag of a fluid flow over an exposed surface. The plasma plate includes a series of plasma actuators positioned on the surface. Each plasma actuator is made of a dielectric separating a first electrode exposed to a fluid flow and a second electrode separated from the fluid flow under the dielectric. A pulsed direct current power supply provides a first voltage to the first electrode and a second voltage to the second electrode. The series of plasma actuators is operably connected to a bus which distribute powers and is positioned to minimize flow disturbances. The plasma actuators are arranged into a series of linear rows such that a velocity component is imparted to the fluid flow.

ABSTRACT A process is provided for the high-yield heterogeneous integration of ‘quantum micro-chiplets’ (QMCs, diamond waveguide arrays containing highly coherent color centers) with an aluminum nitride (AlN) photonic integrated circuit (PIC). As an example, the process is useful for the development of a 72-channel defect-free array of germanium-vacancy (GeV) and silicon-vacancy (SiV) color centers in a PIC. Photoluminescence spectroscopy reveals long-term stable and narrow average optical linewidths of 54 MHz (146 MHz) for GeV (SiV) emitters, close to the lifetime-limited linewidth of 32 MHz (93 MHz). Additionally, inhomogeneities in the individual qubits can be compensated in situ with integrated tuning of the optical frequencies over 100 GHz. The ability to assemble large numbers of nearly indistinguishable artificial atoms into phase-stable PICs is useful for development of multiplexed quantum repeaters and general-purpose quantum computers.

ABSTRACT Integrated circuit (IC) camouflaging has emerged as a promising solution for protecting semiconductor intellectual property (IP) against reverse engineering. The cell camouflaging covert gate leverages doping and dummy contacts to create camouflaged cells that are indistinguishable from regular standard cells under modern imaging techniques. A comprehensive security analysis of the covert gate shows that it achieves high resiliency against SAT and test-based attacks at very low overheads. Models are derived to characterize the covert cells, and metrics are developed to incorporate them into a gate-level design. Simulation results of overheads and attacks are presented on benchmark circuits.

ABSTRACT Techniques are provided for implementing a custodianship model for decentralized track fusion. A methodology implementing the techniques according to an embodiment includes negotiating, between a first decentralized track fuser (DTF) and one or more peer DTFs. The method also includes accepting, by the first DTF, custodianship of a track of an object from one of the peer DTFs based on a first negotiation. The method further includes updating, by the first DTF, the track based on fusion of data items associated with the track. The data items are received from one or more of the peer DTFs. The method further includes transferring, by the first DTF, custodianship of the updated track to one of the peer DTFs based on a second negotiation. In some cases, the transfer may be initiated by detection of a failure state of the first DTF.

ABSTRACT The invention provides methods and apparatus for injecting a medicine, especially a highly viscous medicine. Conventional methods and apparatus for injecting viscous medicines suffer from a variety of problems such as excessive force during the initial needle insertion and initial injection. In an inventive method, during the initial phase of the injection, energy is stored in a torsion spring that is subsequently released during a later stage of the injection. The present invention also provides for an improved autoinjector; especially via the use of a combination compression and torsion spring that powers the injection through controlling force applied to a plunger via a screw flange or nut having pins that ride in a prescribed path down the length of the autoinjector.

ABSTRACT A method is described of producing a catalyst-containing composite oxygen ion membrane and a catalyst-containing composite oxygen ion membrane in which a porous fuel oxidation layer and a dense separation layer and optionally, a porous surface exchange layer are formed on a porous support from mixtures of (Ln1−xAx)wCr1−yByO3−δ and a doped zirconia. Adding certain catalyst metals into the fuel oxidation layer not only enhances the initial oxygen flux, but also reduces the degradation rate of the oxygen flux over long-term operation. One of the possible reasons for the improved flux and stability is that the addition of the catalyst metal reduces the chemical reaction between the (Ln1−xAx)wCr1−yByO3−δ and the zirconia phases during membrane fabrication and operation, as indicated by the X-ray diffraction results.

ABSTRACT A spectrometer includes a crystal analyzer having a radius of curvature that defines a Rowland circle, a sample stage configured to support a sample such that the sample is offset from the Rowland circle, an x-ray source configured to emit unfocused x-rays toward the sample stage, and a position-sensitive detector that is tangent to the Rowland circle. A method performed via a spectrometer includes emitting, via an x-ray source, unfocused x-rays toward a sample that is mounted on a sample stage such that the sample is offset from the Rowland Circle, thereby causing the sample to emit x-rays that impinge on the crystal analyzer or transmit a portion of the unfocused x-rays to impinge on the crystal analyzer; scattering, via the crystal analyzer, the x-rays that impinge on the crystal analyzer; and detecting the scattered x-rays via a position-sensitive detector that is tangent to the Rowland circle.

A Device Under Test (DUT) is excited with a multispectral excitation signal for an excitation time period while the DUT is under a load condition from a load operably coupled to the DUT. A response of the DUT is sampled over a sample time period. The sample time period is configured such that it includes an in-band interval during the excitation time period and one or more out-of-band intervals outside of the in-band interval. A response of the DUT to the load condition during the in-band interval is estimated by analyzing samples of the response from the one or more out-of-band intervals. Adjusted samples are computed by subtracting the estimated load response during the in-band interval from the samples from the in-band interval. An impedance of the DUT is estimated by analyzing the adjusted samples.

ABSTRACT A process is provided for the high-yield heterogeneous integration of ‘quantum micro-chiplets’ (QMCs, diamond waveguide arrays containing highly coherent color centers) with an aluminum nitride (AlN) photonic integrated circuit (PIC). As an example, the process is useful for the development of a 72-channel defect-free array of germanium-vacancy (GeV) and silicon-vacancy (SiV) color centers in a PIC. Photoluminescence spectroscopy reveals long-term stable and narrow average optical linewidths of 54 MHz (146 MHz) for GeV (SiV) emitters, close to the lifetime-limited linewidth of 32 MHz (93 MHz). Additionally, inhomogeneities in the individual qubits can be compensated in situ with integrated tuning of the optical frequencies over 100 GHz. The ability to assemble large numbers of nearly indistinguishable artificial atoms into phase-stable PICs is useful for development of multiplexed quantum repeaters and general-purpose quantum computers.

ABSTRACT A compact adaptive optics system for long-range horizontal paths imaging that improves degraded images. The system uses a filter that corresponds to the three colors in a typical color detector element, one or more optic elements, a deformable mirror, and a detector. Focus errors, due to turbulence, in the image recorded by the detector element show up as image shifts in the three distinct color images. The shifts and statistics of these shifts between these simultaneous images are used to create control signals for the deformable mirror resulting in a compact adaptive optic system for horizontal paths without need for a point source located at the distance scene being imaged. Analysis of the relative pixel shifts in various regions of the image provides third order statistics revealing tip/tilt and additional Zernikes modes that are used to control a deformable mirror without the need for a guide star/point-source.

ABSTRACT An integral Wien filter and vacuum pump for separating charged particles or for orienting their spin direction while maintaining optimal beamline vacuum. The vacuum pump is an ion pump including one or more cylindrical Penning cells to trap and expel electrons. The Wien filter includes orthogonal electric and magnetic fields to direct particles with the desired speed through the device while deflecting particles at undesired speeds. The Wien filter includes two electrodes, one biased positive and one biased negative, a dipole magnet, and means for reversing polarity of the electrodes to flip the spin of the charged particles. Metal plates on either side of the Penning cells embed gas that is ionized by trapped electrons in the Penning cell thus creating vacuum by turning gas into solid. The two metal plates can be configured to obtain vacuum pumping via chemical gettering and for removal of noble gases.

ABSTRACT Integrated circuit (IC) camouflaging has emerged as a promising solution for protecting semiconductor intellectual property (IP) against reverse engineering. The cell camouflaging covert gate leverages doping and dummy contacts to create camouflaged cells that are indistinguishable from regular standard cells under modern imaging techniques. A comprehensive security analysis of the covert gate shows that it achieves high resiliency against SAT and test-based attacks at very low overheads. Models are derived to characterize the covert cells, and metrics are developed to incorporate them into a gate-level design. Simulation results of overheads and attacks are presented on benchmark circuits.

ABSTRACT A plurality of stimulations is transmitted to tissue or other material using one or more transmitters. The plurality of signals associated with the excited tissue and the transmitted stimulations are measured. The measured signals are processed to generate field-related quantities, such as B1+ and/or MR signal maps. Field-related quantities are generated also from simulation, by calculating the one or more incident fields from a simulator model of the one or more transmitters and assuming a given distribution of electrical properties in the tissue or other material. Field-related quantities generated from simulation and experimental procedures are compared to each other. The assumed electrical properties distribution is updated and the procedure is repeated iteratively until the difference between simulated and experimental field-related quantities is smaller than a threshold.

ABSTRACT A dielectrophoresis-based in-droplet cell concentrator is disclosed herein. The concentrator can include a concentration microchannel having an input port and two or more outlet ports. The input port introduces cell-encapsulated droplets or particle-encapsulated droplets into the microchannel; a first outlet port receives droplets including most of the cells or particles and a second output port receives droplets including few cells or particles. The concentrator also can include a pair of electrodes. When voltage is applied, the electrodes will create an electric field across the microchannel. The concentrator adds new capabilities to droplet microfluidics operations, such as adjusting concentrations of cells in droplets, separating cells of different properties from inside droplets, and solution exchange.

ABSTRACT A highly efficient, Z-selective ring-closing metathesis system for the formation of macrocycles using a stereoretentive, ruthenium-based catalyst supported by a dithiolate ligand is reported. This catalyst is demonstrated to be remarkably active as observed in initiation experiments showing complete catalyst initiation at −20° C. within 10 min. Using easily accessible diene starting materials bearing a Z-olefin moiety, macrocyclization reactions generated products with significantly higher Z-selectivity in appreciably shorter reaction times, in higher yield, and with much lower catalyst loadings than in previously reported systems. Macrocyclic lactones ranging in size from twelve-membered to seventeen-membered rings are synthesized in moderate to high yields (68-79% yield) with excellent Z-selectivity (95%-99% Z).

ABSTRACT A lens-free microscope for monitoring air quality includes a housing that contains a vacuum pump configured to draw air into an impaction nozzle. The impaction nozzle has an output located adjacent to an optically transparent substrate for collecting particles. One or more illumination sources are disposed in the housing and are configured to illuminate the collected particles on the optically transparent substrate. An image sensor is located adjacent to the optically transparent substrate, wherein the image sensor collects particle diffraction patterns or holographic images cast upon the image sensor. At least one processor is disposed in the housing and controls the vacuum pump and the one or more illumination sources. Image files are transferred to a separate computing device for image processing using machine learning to identify particles and perform data analysis to output particle images, particle size, particle density, and/or particle type data.

ABSTRACT A process is provided for the high-yield heterogeneous integration of ‘quantum micro-chiplets’ (QMCs, diamond waveguide arrays containing highly coherent color centers) with an aluminum nitride (AlN) photonic integrated circuit (PIC). As an example, the process is useful for the development of a 72-channel defect-free array of germanium-vacancy (GeV) and silicon-vacancy (SiV) color centers in a PIC. Photoluminescence spectroscopy reveals long-term stable and narrow average optical linewidths of 54 MHz (146 MHz) for GeV (SiV) emitters, close to the lifetime-limited linewidth of 32 MHz (93 MHz). Additionally, inhomogeneities in the individual qubits can be compensated in situ with integrated tuning of the optical frequencies over 100 GHz. The ability to assemble large numbers of nearly indistinguishable artificial atoms into phase-stable PICs is useful for development of multiplexed quantum repeaters and general-purpose quantum computers.

ABSTRACT A polarizing beam splitter includes thin electrically conductive metal sheets each having an edge and a thickness substantially less than the wavelength λ of a terahertz signal. The sheets are arranged in a stack or array to define wave propagation passages for energy of a terahertz beam directed at a face formed by edges of the sheets, and constitutes an artificial dielectric which operates below cutoff to allow selective transmission through the passages and/or reflection from said face, separating polarization states of the beam with defined power splitting. The artificial dielectric beam splitter can be configured to operate over a broad terahertz band. The sheets are flat, without micropatterned surface features, are robust and simple to manufacture, and form a broad band polarizing beam slitter for terahertz radiation. Complete separation of the transmitted and reflected beam is achieved below cutoff by rotating the polarization of the input beam.

ABSTRACT The present disclosure relates to a persistent data structure employed as a tree structure with a frequent pattern mining paradigm. The number of nodes in the tree structure scales linearly with respect to the number unique items within the itemsets associated with the nodes. With the disclosed pattern mining paradigm, compressed representations of maximal patterns may be mined with the goal of detecting a frequent maximal pattern covers in a top down approach. Thus, large patterns are detected before their subsets yielding a significant reduction in computation time. The persistent data structure is a dynamic data structure which may be updated to add or delete nodes or transactional information without the need for recreating the entire tree structure. Furthermore, the persistent data structure may be run by a computing system either locally or on a parallelized distributed computing architecture to increase operational performance.

ABSTRACT A plasma plate is used to minimize drag of a fluid flow over an exposed surface. The plasma plate includes a series of plasma actuators positioned on the surface. Each plasma actuator is made of a dielectric separating a first electrode exposed to a fluid flow and a second electrode separated from the fluid flow under the dielectric. A pulsed direct current power supply provides a first voltage to the first electrode and a second voltage to the second electrode. The series of plasma actuators is operably connected to a bus which distribute powers and is positioned to minimize flow disturbances. The plasma actuators are arranged into a series of linear rows such that a velocity component is imparted to the fluid flow.

ABSTRACT The insect water supply system is configured to prevent the insects (such as crickets) from self-contaminating the water supplied to the insects' rearing enclosure. The system is designed so that the insects drink in an inverted (i.e. upside down) and elevated position—consequently the insects' feces fall downward toward the ground and away from their water source—and therefore do not contaminate the insects' water supply.

ABSTRACT Provided are plants that express, or overexpress, type III Gγ protein AGG3. Such plants exhibit faster vegetative and reproductive growth, accompanied by an increase in photosynthetic efficiency. Constitutive or seed-specific expression of AGG3 in Camelina increases seed size, seed mass, and seed number per plant by 15-40%, effectively resulting in significantly higher oil yield per plant. AGG3-expressing Camelina plants also exhibit improved stress tolerance. Use of AGG3 is therefore an effective biotechnological tool to dramatically increase stress tolerance and plant yield, including oil, in agricultural and horticultural crops.

ABSTRACT The present inventors have recognized that various diseases in plants, such as Phytophthora infestans (late blight) and Alternaria solani (early blight), and/or various stages of such diseases in plants, can be reliably detected by applying measurements from electromagnetic reflections detected from a plant in a model to produce an output indicating a probability of the disease and/or stage. In one aspect, coefficients can be applied to each measurement at each wavelength to emphasize identification of a given disease or stage. In another aspect, an imager can capture images comprising spectral pixels in which each pixel comprises measurements from the electromagnetic reflections for application in a model to identify a given disease or stage.

The nanoparticles are annealed at ambient temperatures to yield soft nanoparticles with targeted particle size, saturation magnetization and coercivity. The chemical composition, crystal structure and homogeneity are controlled at the atomic level. The CoFe magnetic nanoparticles have Ms of 200-235 emu/g, (Hc) coercivity of 18 to 36 Oe and size range of 5-40 nm. The high magnetic moment CoFe nanoparticles can be employed in drug delivery, superior contrast agents for highly sensitive magnetic resonance imaging, magnetic immunoassay, magnetic labeling, waste water treatment, and magnetic separation.

ABSTRACT Systems and methods for battery testing including a holder system. The holder system is designed to couple one or more transducers to a battery under test, wherein the one or more transducers are configured for electrochemical-acoustic signal interrogation (EASI) of the battery. The holder system includes at least one arm to house at least one transducer to be coupled to the battery, and a pressure applying device to apply pressure to the at least one transducer, and to control pressure between the at least one transducer and the battery. The holder system is also configured to determine the pressure between the at least one transducer and the battery and adjust the pressure applied to the at least one transducer based on the determined pressure.
