Support Planar And Tapered Quasi-Planar Germanium Waveguides For Infrared Evanescent-Wave Sensing

View page
US Patent:
6496636, Dec 17, 2002
Filed:
Oct 25, 1999
Appl. No.:
09/426055
Inventors:
Mark Stephen Braiman - Syracuse NY,
Susan E. Plunkett - Richmond VA,
James J. Stone - Charlottesville VA,
International Classification:
G02B 610
US Classification:
385129, 385123
Abstract:
Miniature planar IR waveguides of thickness 30-50 m, consisting of 12-mm long, 2-mm wide strips of Ge supported on ZnS substrates and tapered quasi-tapered waveguides, tapered from a thickness of 1 mm at the ends to a minimum of 1-100 m at the center, are disclosed. The surface sensitivity is increased as a function of incidence or bevel angle. The tapered waveguide improves the efficiency of the optical coupling both into the waveguide from an FTIR spectrometer, and out of the waveguide onto a small-area IR detector. The tapering makes it possible to dispense with using an IR microscope couple light through the waveguide, enabling efficient coupling with a detector directly coupled to an immersion lens. This optical arrangement makes such thin supported waveguides more useful as sensors, because they can be made quite long (e. g. 50 mm) and mounted horizontally.

US Patent:
7517968, Apr 14, 2009
Filed:
Jul 7, 2004
Appl. No.:
10/886782
Inventors:
Mark S. Braiman - Cazenovia NY,
Ranga Partha - Houston TX,
Assignee:
Syracuse University - Syracuse NY
International Classification:
C07K 14/00
A23J 1/00
US Classification:
530418, 530355, 530412, 530350
Abstract:
A method for purifying a membrane protein is disclosed which includes providing a test sample potentially including a target membrane protein; adding incremental amounts of a precipitating agent to the test sample to form one or more mixtures; and treating the one or more mixtures under conditions effective to obtain precipitated, purified target membrane protein if present in the test sample.

Cooperative Pointillistic Projection Of A Graphical Image On A Pre-Selected Remote Surface By Using A Multiplicity Of Lasers

View page
US Patent:
20090153811, Jun 18, 2009
Filed:
Nov 12, 2008
Appl. No.:
12/269039
Inventors:
Mark Stephen Braiman - Cazenovia NY,
Dusten Joseph Blake - Cazenovia NY,
International Classification:
G03B 21/14
US Classification:
353121, 353 30, 353 28
Abstract:
A method is described for multiple persons operating lasers to cooperatively project a pointillistic graphical image onto a remote surface. The visibility of the projected image depends on aiming the lasers with accurate relative displacements. Invariant features of the specific remote landscape where the image is to be projected are used as guideposts for maintaining these displacements. A set of transparent images is distributed to the laser operators, designating for each a spot to illuminate, superimposed on a scaled representation of the background landscape. In the preferred embodiment, each transparent image is used as a reticle, mounted into a monocular at its internal focal plane with the designated illumination spot centered on-axis. A laser is also rigidly attached to the monocular, with their optical axes parallel. Each operator aims his/her laser by visually sighting through the monocular so as to align transparent and direct views of the target landscape.

Abstract:
There is described a process for depositing carbon on a surface, comprising, while contacting a mixture of COand Brwith a polar substrate presenting apposed surfaces, exposing a sufficient area of said mixture in the region of said apposed surfaces to light of sufficient intensity and frequency to result in deposition of carbon on at least some of said apposed surfaces. Other embodiments are also described.

Support Planar Germanium Waveguides For Infrared Evanescent-Wave Sensing

View page
US Patent:
59808314, Nov 9, 1999
Filed:
Jun 13, 1997
Appl. No.:
8/874711
Inventors:
Mark S. Braiman - Charlottesville VA
Susan E. Plunkett - Richmond VA
James J. Stone - Charlottesville VA
International Classification:
G01N 2100
US Classification:
422 8211
Abstract:
We have fabricated miniature planar IR waveguides of thickness 30-50. mu. m, consisting of 12-mm long, 2-mm wide strips of Ge supported on ZnS substrates. Evidence for efficient propagation of broadband IR light through these waveguides is provided by the presence of characteristic high and low frequency optical cut-offs of Ge; by the observation of an oscillatory interference pattern in the transmittance spectrum, which exhibits a dependence on waveguide thickness and propagation angle closely matching waveguide theory; and by the detection of strong evanescent-wave absorption from small (2 mm. sup. 2) droplets of liquid, e. g. water, on the waveguide surface. As also predicted by theory, the surface sensitivity (detected light absorbance per unit area of sample-waveguide contact) was shown to increase as a function of incidence or bevel angle.

Treatment Of Psoriasis With 11-Cis-Retinoic Acid

View page
US Patent:
57191956, Feb 17, 1998
Filed:
May 5, 1995
Appl. No.:
8/435804
Inventors:
Mark S. Braiman - Charlottesville VA
Assignee:
4 Thought Technologies - Charlottesville VA
International Classification:
A61K 104
US Classification:
514725
Abstract:
A particular uncommon isomer of retinoic acid (namely 11-cis-retinoic acid, or neotretinoin) is useful in treating conditions involving abnormal cellular differentiation and hyperproliferation, such as psoriasis. A new method of synthesizing this isomer, in quantities that has allowed it to be compared therapeutically with the more commonly available all-trans and 13-cis isomers, is presented. As measured on the inventor's own psoriasis-affected skin, topical treatment with 11-cis-retinoic acid is much more efficacious in reducing symptoms and has substantially reduced side effects, as compared to topical treatment with the other isomers. A single application of a 0. 001% neotretinoin cream to psoriasis lesions leads within 48 hours to substantial amelioration of associated dermatological symptoms, including itching, scaling, bleeding, and abnormal appearance. Continued application leads to complete remission, and replacement of lesions by skin that is indistinguishable from surrounding healthy tissue, without any noticeable irritation, erythema, or other problematic side effects. A less efficacious but more easily-implemented version of the same invention employs ultraviolet or blue-light irradiation of a commercially-available gel containing tretinoin as a means of effecting partial conversion of the tretinoin to neotretinoin, prior to application of the gel to psoriasis-affected areas of skin.
