It includes an algorithm that inverts and corrects the recorded two-dimensional arrays of backscatter profiles into accurate beam attenuation coefficients and properties at each wavelength. This allows for clear imaging even when optical densities are significantly lower while, at the same time, allowing primary processing to occur on-board ...Fri, 07 Dec 2018 05:53:35 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu Highly Elastic and Auto-Fluorescent Poly (Xylitol-Dodecanedioic Acid) for Tissue Engineering, 08 Nov 2018 08:49:23 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu and Moisture Activated Material for Rapid Deployable Underwater Sensor Framework and Undersea Robotic Applications, 08 Nov 2018 08:48:30 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu Bicyclic Compounds and their Derivatives as Neuroprotective Agents technology utilizes bridged bicyclic compounds and pharmaceutically acceptable salt forms as neuroprotective agents. The compounds have been benchmarked against resveratrol and have shown neuroprotective properties relative to it. One of the compounds provided extended time to synaptic failure by approximately 100 minutes. Additionally, another tested compound allowed the synapse under study to maintain 80% of its normal function even under declining oxidative conditions. Initial studies show these compounds are capable of restoring synaptic function after oxidative stress.Thu, 08 Nov 2018 08:39:20 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu Thermal Membrane Distillation System for Drinking Water Production innovation provides a low-cost, low-power water purification system that can produce potable water from untreated surface water, wastewater, and seawater by utilizing solar thermal energy. The simplified system is comprised of an inlet water chamber, a hydrophobic membrane with the permeable side coated with carbon black particles, gaskets, a distillate chamber, a condensate channel and a clean water collection tank. It removes pathogenic organisms, volatile organic compounds, and other impurities to produce potable water at the point-of-use. The system requires no electricity and has a h...Thu, 08 Nov 2018 08:38:35 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu and Methods for Larval Fish Enumeration and Growth Monitoring, 05 Nov 2018 07:39:24 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu and Methods for Federated Power Management, 07 Aug 2018 06:52:01 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu Angle Controlled Wavelength Lighting System to Stimulate Feeding in Larval Fish marine fish on a commercial scale is difficult due to a variety of issues. One of which is the feeding of newly hatched fish fry in captivity due to either rejection of feeding or inadequate diet. This technology is an LED lighting system designed to illuminate dry pellet food in the water to mimic moving live food for newly hatched fish fry. Both visual recognition of food and the UV spectrum play a role in how fish fry detects prey items. By illuminating the dry food, the fry can identify a food source more easily by exaggerating the contrast between the food and the background. Curr...Tue, 07 Aug 2018 06:47:43 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu Microdisplay Optical Imaging and Sensor Systems for Underwater Scattering Environments imaging and sensor system that provides the ability to acquire images with improved quality from underwater environments. This novel system reduces unwanted scattering volume while improving the signal to noise ratio to yield superior images compared to current technologies. Additionally, the design is a more compact, reliable, and cost effective synchronized laser image system while retaining high signal to noise ratio. The technology has application in systems such as flash light detection and ranging systems and laser line scanner systems.Tue, 07 Aug 2018 06:47:23 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu and Method for Localizing Cardiac Arrhythmia Sources Using Multi-Pole Sensors fibrillation (AF) is the most common type of heart arrhythmia, which is when the heart beats too slowly, too fast, or in an irregular way. AF can be treated through a procedure known as ablation, which destroys a small area of heart tissue that is the source of the irregular heartbeats. One of the challenges associated with ablation is that it can be difficult to detect the exact source of the AF. This technology allows for the generation of an AF ablation target map by utilizing a conventional multi-pole diagnostic catheter (MPDC) in the atria. The ablation target map reveals the locat...Mon, 25 Jun 2018 10:39:11 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu
