Co-Extrusion Process Prevents Ingredient Co-Mingling

This co-extrusion process helps turn a batch process into a continuous production process, thus speeding the production line and enabling production of materials that otherwise might be difficult or impossible to produce using conventional extrusion and post-extrusion processing.

Shape-Memory Diaphragm Shutter Valve for Fluid Flow Interception and Icing Prevention

This valve for gases, liquids, or powdery materials has an extremely simple and low-cost structure. Opening and closing functions are generated by using shape-memory wires, which move a diaphragm shutter element. The shape memory can reshape the diaphragm to lift away from the closed position. Then, with the change of temperature or current, it can return back to the closed position. This open/shut movement can be simple for on/off fluid requirements. It can also be rapid to effect displacement of a fluid. Particular positioning of shape-memory elements guarantees deicing functionality as resistance along the alloy can generate heat to prevent freezing.

Fast, Quantitative Diagnostic Reader for Medical Tests

Kimberly-Clark CorporationThis medical reader can perform diagnostic tests on any bodily fluid that attenuates light, such as blood, urine, sputum, or other fluid. Thousands of potential tests are possible, including immunoassay, colorimetric/chromogenic tests, cholesterol, and osteoporosis calcium levels. This all-in-one diagnostic reader can handle such tests and report results in as little as ten minutes. The prototype performs three identical tests on a single, whole-blood sample for accuracy, but a greater number of simultaneous tests could be performed, or a battery of tests could be performed on the same sample.

Flat-Plate Lens Achieves Negative Refraction at 100-nm Resolution

AIST InnovationsExperiments with holograms have led to a thin-film flat-plate lens that has a periodic (layered) structure and that is capable of a resolution of 100 nm or finer. The flat lens provides excellent image-forming characteristics by the incidence of light having a wavelength slightly shorter than the wavelength corresponding to the frequency period of the thin film. The structure can exhibit a negative refractive index at high angles of incidence. This lens technology exhibits uniform performance in image formation all over the lens surface. The thin film of the periodic structure is formed by alternate laminations (and pluralities of laminations) of two materials having different refractive indices.

PicoEndo Tethered Endoscope

Stevrin & PartnersThe PicoEndo endoscope is the smallest tethered endoscope in the world (4.5mm × 12.0mm). It is also inexpensive enough to use and discard. The PicoEndo system is applicable to medical tasks such as photographing the surface of the esophagus, and to applications in any industry that needs to place a tiny electronic camera eye in a location that is difficult to view. It can be adapted to optical biopsy by changing its lighting mix. Because of its tether, which also acts as an electronic connection and steering cable, the body does not have to contain batteries, memory, or processing electronics.
