Transparent illumination panels

Windows, or other types of transparent materials, may be constructed to passively allow light from alternate sources to pass therethrough, while also being able to actively produce artificial light for providing illumination from one side of the window by means of an incorporated optical waveguide that accepts light from an edge of the window and disperses it from only one side of the window.. .

Passive millimeter wave image converter

An imaging system is provided. The system includes a receiver to passively receive a millimeter wave (mmw) power level input from a scene and generates an analog output signal.
Northrop Grumman Systems Corporation


System and controlling the iontophoretic delivery of therapeutic agents based on user inhalation

Embodiments of the invention provide methods for transdermal delivery of therapeutic agents for treatment of addictive cravings e.g., from nicotine. Embodiment of a method for such delivery comprises positioning at least one electrode assembly in electrical communication with a patient's skin.
Incube Labs, Llc


Hybrid self illuminated and actively back lit signage for printed graphics

Hybrid signage capable of self illumination and having an active backlight. The signage includes a turning film having a structured surface for redirecting light in order to passively illuminate a printed graphic or shaped sign when the backlight is off.

Automated lifelogging to identify, monitor, and help achieve user goals

A user's activities are automatically logged as they are passively sensed by the user's mobile devices. Patterns of activities or changes in those patterns can be used to identify goals, and users can tell the logging system about other goals directly.
Aro, Inc.


Methods for operating a fuel cell system

Methods of operating a fuel cell system, wherein the fuel cell system is purged at system start-up, are disclosed. The purging automatically stops when the anode plenum is fully purged and replaced with fuel.

Passively q-switched element and passively q-switched laser device

Provided is a passively q-switched element or the like, which enables mode selection without increasing the number of components in a resonator in a q-switched pulse laser or the like that oscillates in a great number of high-order modes and which is also applicable to a waveguide type laser in which a mode cannot be controlled spatially. By combining a saturable absorber (2) with a transparent material (3) which is transparent to a laser oscillation wavelength or the like, a passively q-switched element having a mode selection function and a passively q-switched laser device in which a passively q-switched element has a mode selection function, and a planar waveguide type passively q-switched element and passively q-switched laser device are provided..
