20080203328OUTER SPACE SUN SCREEN FOR REDUCING GLOBAL WARMING - A large number of bubbles or other thin-walled hollow objects are deployed in outer space to form a sun screen. Portions of the solar radiation incident on the sun screen are reflected or absorbed. Since those portions will not reach the earth, deploying the sun screen over very large areas can have a significant impact towards reducing global warming.08-28-2008
20130146792Integral shutter - An integral shutter that is for use in several beamline applications. The shutter combines the features and properties of a pink beam photon shutter, a pink beam safety shutter, a pink beam fixed mask and a pink beam collimator. The device is important for synchrotron radiation facility personal safety. These assemblies are needed to guard against accidental positron beam loss during both injection and normal operation. Positron beam loss can result in high-energy radiation being directed into an experimental station.06-13-2013

20130207005COMPOSITE FILM FOR BOARD LEVEL EMI SHIELDING - An EMI shielding composite film for use in printed circuit boards has at least two layers, a top layer electrically conductive in all directions (isotropic), and a bottom layer electrically conductive only in the Z (thickness) direction (anisotropic) after thermo-compression. The bottom layer is in contact with the grounding pads of the circuitry of the electronic device to be shielded. The conductive top layer functions similarly to metallic boxes to prevent the electromagnetic radiation from both entering the boxes and escaping into the environment. The bottom layer interconnects the top conductive layer to the grounding pads on the PCB after thermo-compression so that electromagnetic waves collected by the top layer are directed and released to PCB grounding pads through the bottom layer.08-15-2013
