This technique is based on multistable shells which are developed by nanotechnology, surface mechanical attrition treatment (SMAT). The shape transitions of the bistable or multistable shells in the structure bring about volume changes to adjust buoyant forces in the water and enables the submerging and surfacing without weight changes of the structure. Functional devices can be attached to the submerging and surfacing system to achieve specific functions, such as underwater environment profile ...

Blood clotting is perennially associated with hemolysis and platelet activation in medical devices (such as the centrifugal and axial blood pumps) due to fast moving parts or high flow velocities. Fast moving parts or high flow velocity impart a large shear stress on blood, distorting and damaging blood cells and activating platelets. Hemolysis can lead to systemic inflammation and organ failure, breakaway clot pieces can cause thromboembolism and tissue damage, and clot formation on devices can...

The technology described herein is related to the development of a transparent film which can be attached to windows to enable changing of the tint, colour and temperature characterisitics of windows instantly. This technology transforms windows by enabling people to control the natural light and infrared radiation entering buildings. Controlling natural light reduces glare and sets the right lighting level for comfort. Controlling infrared and light lowers energy consumption for heating, coolin...

Ice can be a problem in industrial sectors as wind power, aeronautical and construction, among others. Coatings that allow the reduction of ice formation and which in turn are heated, thereby reducing the icing phenomena, have been developed. The technology consists of transforming a non-conductive polymeric matrix into a heatable material. The heated surfaces avoid the icing phenomena by keeping the temperature of the coating over 0ºC.

Over the past decades, light-weight vehicles, e.g. electric cars, have been widely advocated in an effort to reduce energy usage and be more environmentally friendly. This emphasis on weight reduction has led to significant deterioration in the energy dissipation capabilities. As such, crashworthiness enhancement has once again become a critical issue. However, the design based on conventional structures is becoming more difficult, and the employment of high-strength materials much costlier. In ...

Various methods and carriers are routinely used for the separation of biopolymer molecules, such as mono- and multi-phosphorylated peptides or recombinant peptides/proteins with a polyhistidine tag (His-tag). However, these methods and carriers have limiting characteristics, for example, insufficient purity of separated proteins, limited surface area of microspheres accessible for binding, gradual release of the carrier ions during separation, poor mechanical stability, and toxicity of the relea...

This technology presents a microfluidic chip, containing silicon nanoparticles, which allows contamination factor analysis to the environment. The microfluidic chip introduces silicone nanoparticles, in the form of pillar structures, on the surface of the microchannel, which improves the 3-dimensional surface structure, increasing the surface area in contact with the target material and allows colour changes to be perceived by the naked eye.

Chemical sunscreens contain ingredients such as oxybenzone, which can cause skin allergies and other adverse health conditions. Some of these organic UV-filters are hormone disruptors and carcinogens. Under sunlight, the chemicals can degrade to produce cytotoxic and allergenic compounds. A popular substitute candidate would be physical filter such as titanium dioxide (TiO2). However, TiO2 generates undesirable reactive oxygen species (ROS) under sunlight. While sunscreen effect is achieved, the...

Ultrahydrophobic coatings and icephobic coatings for passive anti-icing and other applications have been developed. The ultrahydrophobic coatings can be applied on different surfaces, in order to avoid ice and snow accumulation in principle, but also to other applications in which the accumulation of humidity on the surface is a problem. They can be coatings based on polyurethane, polyacrylate or fluorinated polymers. The icephobic coatings can reduce the adhesion of ice on the treated surface...
