ABSTRACT A matrix resin composition for fiber reinforced composite materials is described. The resin is thermosetting and achieves a glass transition temperature of at least 177° C. (Tg), obtained by curing at room temperature. The matrix resin will streamline composite fabrication processes by eliminating the need for heating during the cure process. The implications of this development are significant in terms of the ease of use and elimination of procedural steps. While the resin system was developed specifically for vacuum bagging, it is expected to be viable for other composite fabrication methods including resin transfer molding (RTM) and vacuum-assisted resin transfer molding (VARTM). The resin system is viable for use with carbon fiber reinforcements to fabricate laminates at least 0.20 inches thick. The resulting laminates have low porosity and mechanical properties equivalent to those prepared with common epoxy matrix resins.

ABSTRACT Yarn energy harvesters containing conducing nanomaterials (such as carbon nanotube (CNT) yarn harvesters) that electrochemically convert tensile or torsional mechanical energy into electrical energy. Stretched coiled yarns can generate 250 W/kg of peak electrical power when cycled up to 24 Hz, and can generate up to 41.2 J/kg of electrical energy per mechanical cycle. Unlike for other harvesters, torsional rotation produces both tensile and torsional energy harvesting and no bias voltage is required, even when electrochemically operating in salt water. Since homochiral and heterochiral coiled harvester yarns provide oppositely directed potential changes when stretched, both contribute to output power in a dual-electrode yarn. These energy harvesters were used in the ocean to harvest wave energy, combined with thermally-driven artificial muscles to convert temperature fluctuations to electrical energy, sewn into textiles for use as self-powered respiration sensors, and used to power a light emitting diode and to charge a storage capacitor.

ABSTRACT An optical breakdown acoustic transducer can generate high-bandwidth, high amplitude acoustic waves via an optical breakdown process. The optical breakdown acoustic transducer can include a vessel having an interior cavity that is substantially filled with a fluid and a light source that emits light. The light can be directed through an optical element that focuses the light to at least one focal point located within the fluid, thereby causing optical breakdown and generation of an acoustic shockwave. The acoustic shockwave can then be coupled into a medium surrounding the optical breakdown acoustic transducer via an acoustic outlet coupled to the vessel. The acoustic output of the optical breakdown acoustic transducer can be tuned by adjusting the properties of the optical source and/or the shape of the cavity containing the fluid. The optical breakdown acoustic transducer can be used for imaging, sensing, communication, and mechanical disruption.

ABSTRACT Systems and methods for measuring dynamic hydraulic conductivity and permeability associated with a cell layer are disclosed. Some systems include a microfluidic device, one or more working-fluid reservoirs, and one or more fluid-resistance element. The microfluidic device includes a first microchannel, a second microchannel, and a barrier therebetween. The barrier includes a cell layer adhered thereto. The working fluids are delivered to the microfluidic device. The fluid-resistance elements are coupled to one or more of the fluid paths and provide fluidic resistance to cause a pressure drop across the fluid-resistance elements. Mass transfer occurs between the first microchannel and the second microchannel, which is indicative of the hydraulic conductivity and/or dynamic permeability associated with the cells.

ABSTRACT An accelerometer includes a vacuum chamber to receive a laser beam and a nanoparticle. The nanoparticle is trapped in an oscillating state in a focus of the laser beam. A processor calculates an acceleration of the nanoparticle based on changes in position of an oscillating nanoparticle. A plurality of photodetectors are spaced apart to identify spatial coordinates of the oscillating nanoparticle. The processor may calculate the acceleration of the nanoparticle based on changes in the spatial coordinates of the oscillating nanoparticle and a frequency of oscillation of the nanoparticle within the vacuum chamber. The nanoparticle may have a diameter of a predetermined size and is trapped in the focus of the laser beam based on a polarizability of the nanoparticle. The diameter of the predetermined size of the nanoparticle may be smaller than a wavelength of the laser beam.

ABSTRACT An active attestation apparatus verifies at runtime the integrity of untrusted machine code of an embedded system residing in a memory device while it is being run/used with while slowing the processing time less than other methods. The apparatus uses an integrated circuit chip containing a microcontroller and a reprogrammable logic device, such as a field programmable gate array (FPGA), to implement software attestation at runtime and in less time than is typically possible with comparable attestation approaches, while not requiring any halt of the processor in the microcontroller. The reprogrammable logic device includes functionality to load an encrypted version of its configuration and operating code, perform a checksum computation, and communicate with a verifier. The checksum algorithm is preferably time optimized to execute computations in the reprogrammable logic device in the minimum possible time.

ABSTRACT In Multi-Policy Decision-Making (MPDM), many computationally-expensive forward simulations are performed in order to predict the performance of a set of candidate policies. In risk-aware formulations of MPDM, only the worst outcomes affect the decision making process, and efficiently finding these influential outcomes becomes the core challenge. Recently, stochastic gradient optimization algorithms, using a heuristic function, were shown to be significantly superior to random sampling. In this disclosure, it was shown that accurate gradients can be computed-even through a complex forward simulation—using approaches similar to those in dep networks. The proposed approach finds influential outcomes more reliably, and is faster than earlier methods, allowing one to evaluate more policies while simultaneously eliminating the need to design an easily-differentiable heuristic function.

ABSTRACT A generic online, probabilistic, approximate computational inference model for learning-based data processing is presented. The model includes detection, feature production and classification steps. It employs Bayesian Probabilistic Models (BPMs) to characterize complex real-world behaviors under uncertainty. The BPM learning is incremental. Online learning enables BPM adaptation to new data. The available data drives BPM complexity (e.g., number of states) accommodating spatial and temporal ambiguities, occlusions, environmental clutter, and large inter-domain data variability. Generic Sequential Bayesian Inference (GSBI) efficiently operates over BPMs to process streaming or forensic data. Deep Belief Networks (DBNs) learn feature representations from data. Examples include model applications for streaming imagery (e.g., video) and automatic target recognition (ATR).

ABSTRACT A semiconductor vertical light source includes upper and lower mirrors with an active region in between, an inner mode confinement region, and an outer current blocking region that includes a common epitaxial layer including an epitaxially regrown interface between the active region and upper mirror. A conducting channel including acceptors is in the inner mode confinement region. The current blocking region includes a first impurity doped region with donors between the epitaxially regrown interface and active region, and a second impurity doped region with acceptors between the first doped region and lower mirror. The outer current blocking region provides a PNPN current blocking region that includes the upper mirror or a p-type layer, first doped region, second doped region, and lower mirror or an n-type layer. The first and second impurity doped region force current flow into the conducting channel during normal operation of the light source.

ABSTRACT A circuit breaker includes a monitor to detect a performance of an electrical load in an electrical circuit, a converter to create a digital signal based on the detected performance of the electrical load, and a digital integrated circuit to compare the digital signal with a predetermined threshold reference signal, and generate a command signal to electrically disconnect the electrical load from the electrical circuit when a level of the digital signal exceeds the predetermined threshold reference signal. The electrical load may be configured to receive a fixed or variable amount of current or voltage. The predetermined threshold reference signal may include a signal level threshold and a time threshold. The digital integrated circuit may generate the command signal when the level of the digital signal exceeds the signal level threshold and the detected performance of the electrical load exceeds the time threshold.

ABSTRACT A counter-directional optical network having multiple channels includes a source module connected with at least two network nodes by a fiber ribbon including an array of optical fibers. Each channel includes at least one optical fiber. The source module includes multiple signal sources, each signal source connected with one of the channels and operable to transmit a source signal in a direction in the channel. Each network node includes a modulator for processing the source signal with a data input signal forming a message signal, a switch for selecting one of the channels to transmit the message signal and a receiver connected with one of the channels for receiving a message signal from another node. The message signal is transmitted to the receiver of a receiving node in a direction opposite to the transmission direction of the source signal via the channel connected to the receiver of the receiving node.

ABSTRACT Methods and apparatus for identifying microbiological constituents in the middle ear. A spectrometer receives Raman-scattered light from the region of the tympanic membrane and resolves spectral features of the Raman-scattered light. A processor receives the interferometry signal and the Raman signal, and generates a Raman spectrum of the tympanic membrane and material adjacent thereto. In some embodiments of the invention, low-coherence light and substantially monochromatic excitation light are directed onto a tympanic membrane of the ear of a person via an otoscopic tip that abuts the ear canal. An interferometer combines scattered low-coherence light from the ear tissue with a reference signal to generate an interferometric signal.

ABSTRACT Enteric elastomers and related methods are generally provided. In some embodiments, the enteric elastomer is a polymer composite. Certain embodiments comprise a polymer composite in which hydrogen bonds within two carboxyl group-containing polymers cross-link the polymer networks into an elastic and pH-responsive polymer composite. Advantageously, this polymer composite has the capacity of being stable and elastic in an acidic environment such as that of the stomach but can be dissolved in a neutral pH environment such as that of the small and large intestines. In some embodiments, the polymer composites described herein comprise a mixture of two or more polymers with carboxyl functionality such that the two or more polymers form hydrogen bonds. In certain embodiments, the polymer composite has both enteric and elastic properties.

ABSTRACT The present invention generally relates to a set of early developmental reference data or “lineage scorecard” for stem cells, and methods, systems and kits to generate a lineage scorecard for predicting the functionality and suitability of stem cell lines. In some aspects, methods for generating a scorecard comprises measuring the gene expression of a plurality of early developmental genes, such as pluripotent, early ectoderm, early mesoderm and early endoderm genes to predict the pluripotency and differentiation potential of the stem cell line and its functionality and/or suitability for a desired use. In some embodiments, a reference scorecard can be compared with the test stem cell line scorecard to accurately predict the utility and/or identify specific characteristics of the stem cell line, e.g., to determine its suitability for downstream applications, e.g., therapeutic use, drug screening, toxicity assays, differentiation into a desired cell lineage, etc.

ABSTRACT Methods, apparatuses and systems for facilitating automated or semi-automated collection of tissue samples cut by a microtome. In one example, a collection apparatus may be moved back and forth between respective positions at which the collection apparatus is operatively coupled to a microtome so as to collect cut tissue samples, or routine access to the microtome is provided. Relatively easy movement and positioning of the collection apparatus is facilitated, while at the same time ensuring structural stability and appropriate alignment and/or isolation between the collection apparatus and the microtome. A fluid reservoir receives samples cut by the microtome, and the collection apparatus may collect samples via a conveyor-like substrate disposed near/in the reservoir. A linear movement of the substrate may be controlled based on a cutting rate of the microtome, and the fluid level in the reservoir may be automatically maintained to facilitate effective sample collection.

ABSTRACT Described herein is an additive manufacturing apparatus that is well-suited for constructing piezoelectric sensors. The additive manufacturing apparatus includes an extrusion nozzle formed of a conductive material such as aluminum. The extrusion nozzle has a channel by way of which printing material exits the extrusion nozzle, wherein a build plate is configured to receive the printing material responsive to the printing material exiting the extrusion nozzle. An arc suppressor formed of a semiconductor is coupled to the extrusion nozzle and is configured to dissipate excess charge that would otherwise exist on the extrusion nozzle when a relatively high bias voltage is applied to the extrusion nozzle. Thus, the arc suppressor mitigates arcing between the extrusion nozzle and the build plate. Arc suppressing gas is also optionally introduced into a printing region, thereby further mitigating arcing between the extrusion nozzle and the build plate.

ABSTRACT The present disclosure relates to a system for optimizing an additive manufacturing (AM) process. The system may use a printing component for using a material to form a component in a layer-by-layer process. An electronic controller may control movement of one of the printing component or a substrate on which the component is being formed, in a manner to optimize a toolpath for the printing component as each layer of the component is formed. Optimization operations are performed using an optimization subsystem which enables manufacturability constraints, as well as optimized toolpaths for each layer of the component, to be defined using contours of a level-set function. The level-set function may be used to define the optimized toolpaths within a fixed, predetermined grid, and the optimized toolpaths then used to generate suitable code for controlling movement of the printing component relative to the substrate to create the part or structure in a layer-by-layer process, using the optimized toolpaths.

ABSTRACT The present disclosure provides improved methods for controlled cyclization of peptoid dimers to form N,N′-2,5-diketopiperazines (N,N′-2,5-DKPs) with significant selectivity. In at least some examples, selectivity is based on a serendipitous conglomeration of slow exchange of amide rotamers, steric repulsion from the degree of α-substitution, and the geometric bulk of an amine nucleophile. By varying reaction conditions, the selectivity of the reaction and formation of a particular N,N′-2,5-DKP can be switched. The cyclization works in the presence of a variety of protection groups and diverse functionalities. The teachings herein provide techniques for synthesizing N,N′-2,5-DKPs that can be readily docked with drug candidates for shuttling across the blood brain barrier. This method provides a facile way to produce substituted DKPs containing groups ready for post-modification to include docking drug candidates.

ABSTRACT An article that includes a fluorescent composition having at least one of a fluorescent sensor compound and organic reporter molecules encapsulated in a microsphere structure. When encapsulated, the fluorescent sensor compound and the organic reporter molecules are distributed in a liquid organic matrix. When non-encapsulated, the remaining one of the fluorescent sensor compound and the organic reporter molecules reside in the matrix. In response to a force applied to the composition sufficient to break at least a portion of the microsphere structure, the fluorescent sensor compound and the organic reporter molecules are transformed into a non-reversible fluorescent state exhibiting a quantum yield greater than 0.2. The fluorescent state is objectively visually verifiable without physically contacting the composition.

ABSTRACT A water heater that includes a cylindrical storage tank and at least one heating element, is modeled using a one-dimensional model that includes: a vertical stack of disks representing the water volume in the cylindrical storage tank, and a stack of annular segments surrounding the vertical stack of disks. Various temperature measurements are determined via resistance calculations of the at least one heating element. The stack of annular segments represents the cylindrical wall of the cylindrical storage tank. The one-dimensional model may be used by a condition-based maintenance system comprising an electronic data processing device configured to detect a failure mode present in the water heater based on an output of the water heating model component. Some illustrative failure modes include insulation disturbance, heating element failure, excessive sediment buildup, or a drip tube rupture.

ABSTRACT A method is provided for Fourier domain dynamic correction of optical fringes in a laser spectrometer. The method includes Fourier transforming a background spectrum contaminated with the optical fringes to obtain baseline fringes in a frequency domain. The method includes partitioning the baseline fringes in the frequency domain to obtain partitioned baseline fringes. The method includes reconstructing the partitioned baseline fringes as separate spectra. The method includes constructing a fitting model to approximate the background spectrum by assigning a first and a second free parameter to each of partitioned baseline fringe components to respectively allow for drift and amplitude adjustments during a fitting of the fitting model. The method includes applying the fitting model to a newly acquired spectrum to provide an interpretation of the newly acquired spectrum having a reduced influence of spectral contamination on concentration retrieval.

ABSTRACT A pulsed sinusoidal acoustic signal transmitted through a subsurface volume of a wellbore may be detected. A time-reversed acoustic signal of the pulsed sinusoidal acoustic signal may be transmitted through the subsurface volume of the wellbore. Transmission of the time-reversed acoustic signal through the subsurface volume of the wellbore may result in generation of focused acoustic signal in the subsurface volume of the wellbore. The focused acoustic signal in the subsurface volume of the wellbore may be detected, and the integrity of the wellbore may be determined based on the focused acoustic signal in the subsurface volume of the wellbore.

ABSTRACT A photovoltaic (PV) system includes a system control module that determines the presence of a microinverter chain termination end cap. The end cap includes an embedded circuit. The embedded circuit includes components having resistive, reactive, or impedance values. A signal source provides a signal through the microinverter chain. A parameter for a sensed signal detected by the system control module is used to determine the presence of the end cap using a change between the parameter for the sense signal and a reference parameter.

ABSTRACT Systems and methods for restoring and/or augmenting neural function are disclosed herein. One such method includes receiving signals associated with a first region of the nervous system of the individual, and generating a stimulation pattern based on (a) the signals associated with the first region of the nervous system and (b) a first artificial network. The method can further include outputting the stimulation pattern to (a) a second region of the nervous system to induce a behavioral output from the individual and (b) a second artificial network configured to predict the behavioral output from the individual. The method can also include comparing the induced behavioral output to the predicted behavioral output to generate an error signal. Parameters of the first artificial network can be adjusted using the error signal and the second artificial network to optimize the stimulation patterns and other output signals to achieve restoration and/or augmentation goals.

ABSTRACT A laser-assisted microfluidics manufacturing process has been developed for the fabrication of additively manufactured structures. Roll-to-roll manufacturing is enhanced by the use of a laser-assisted electrospray printhead positioned above the flexible substrate. The laser electrospray printhead sprays microdroplets containing nanoparticles onto the substrate to form both thin-film and structural layers. As the substrate moves, the nanoparticles are sintered using a laser beam directed by the laser electrospray printhead onto the substrate.

ABSTRACT A method for fabricating an electrode includes forming a 3D shell having a hollow interior and defining one or more openings, and directing an electrically conductive liquid through at least one of the one or more openings of the 3D shell, such that the 3D shell is at least partially filed with the electrically conductive liquid. The electrically conductive liquid can be caused to solidify within the 3D shell to form a solid electrode, or can remain a liquid to form a liquid electrode. The 3D shell can be formed having the one or more openings using a 3D printing process such as a two-photon writing system. The surface tension of the electrically conductive liquid aids in retaining the electrically conductive liquid within the 3D shell. The electrode can contact a tissue sample through one of the openings in the 3D shell.

ABSTRACT Apparatus and methods for facilitating an intramolecular reaction that occurs in single collisions of CO2 molecules (or their derivatives amenable to controllable acceleration, such as CO2+ ions) with a solid surface, such that molecular oxygen (or its relevant analogs, e.g., O2+ and O2ions) is directly produced are provided. The reaction is driven by kinetic energy and is independent of surface composition and temperature. The methods and apparatus may be used to remove CO2 from Earth's atmosphere, while, in other embodiments, the methods and apparatus may be used to prevent the atmosphere's contamination with CO2 emissions. In yet other embodiments, the methods and apparatus may be used to obtain molecular oxygen in CO2-rich environments, such as to facilitate exploration of extraterrestrial bodies with CO2-rich atmospheres (e.g. Mars).

ABSTRACT Base stations for MIMO wireless systems embodying efficient channel estimation techniques. One illustrative embodiment includes: an array of multiple antennas to exchange uplink and downlink signals with spatially-distributed user terminals; multiple transmit chains, each coupled to one of the multiple antennas by a respective transceiver that also couples that antenna to a respective one of multiple receive chains; and a controller. Each of the receive chains opportunistically derives estimated uplink channel response coefficients from packet headers in the wireless uplink signals, and the controller determines a steering transform based at least in part on the estimated channel response coefficients. The transmit chains apply the steering transform to spatially-distinct downlink signals to produce antenna-specific downlink signals for each antenna in the array. Another illustrative embodiment determines, based at least in part on the estimated channel response coefficients, a mobility indicator for each user terminal, and, based on the mobility indicators, schedules at least one action.

ABSTRACT Yarn energy harvesters containing conducing nanomaterials (such as carbon nanotube (CNT) yarn harvesters) that electrochemically convert tensile or torsional mechanical energy into electrical energy. Stretched coiled yarns can generate 250 W/kg of peak electrical power when cycled up to 24 Hz, and can generate up to 41.2 J/kg of electrical energy per mechanical cycle. Unlike for other harvesters, torsional rotation produces both tensile and torsional energy harvesting and no bias voltage is required, even when electrochemically operating in salt water. Since homochiral and heterochiral coiled harvester yarns provide oppositely directed potential changes when stretched, both contribute to output power in a dual-electrode yarn. These energy harvesters were used in the ocean to harvest wave energy, combined with thermally-driven artificial muscles to convert temperature fluctuations to electrical energy, sewn into textiles for use as self-powered respiration sensors, and used to power a light emitting diode and to charge a storage capacitor.

ABSTRACT Aspergillus flavus is an opportunistic, saprophytic fungus that infects maize and other fatty acid-rich food and feed crops and produces toxic and carcinogenic secondary metabolites known as aflatoxins. In vitro studies showed a five-fold increase in antifungal activity of AGM182 (vs. tachyplesin1) against A. flavus. Transgenic maize plants expressing AGM182 under maize Ubiquitin-1 promoter were produced through Agrobacterium-mediated transformation. PCR products confirmed integration of the AGM182 gene, while RT-PCR of maize RNA confirmed the presence of AGM182 transcripts. Maize kernel screening assay using a highly aflatoxigenic A. flavus strain (AF70) showed up to 72% reduction in fungal growth in the transgenic AGM182 seeds compared to isogenic negative control seeds.
