Since lighting attributes to 11% of energy usage in residential buildings and 18% in commercial buildings, improving its efficiency as a whole could have a beneficial effect on the general populace and drastically reduce costs for individuals using and supplying lighting. Because energy production is one of the most prominent contributors to greenhouse gas emissions, improving lighting performance could slow climate change and dampen future expenses associated with reversing env...Tue, 12 Sep 2017 13:13:04 GMTbrent.schultze@utdallas.edu Plasticity and Recovery Following Spinal Cord Injury, 14 Aug 2017 08:35:37 GMTbrent.schultze@utdallas.edu Passive RFID Systems, 24 Jul 2017 08:41:08 GMTbrent.schultze@utdallas.edu Power Feedback for Extremum Seeking Control of Wind Turbines a wind turbine operates between the cut-in and rated wind speeds, the machine is controlled to maximize wind energy capture. The extremum seeking control (ESC) algorithm has been proposed to locate and track the optimal operating condition for power maximization. This is accomplished by applying the ESC to the power signal to determine optimal values for parameters of the control law or actuator settings. Since the power signal is proportional to the cube of the mean wind speed, changes in wind conditions may lead to significant variations in the performance of the ESC algorithm. This pap...Fri, 14 Jul 2017 11:51:10 GMTbrent.schultze@utdallas.edu System for Label-Free Analysis of Binding Kinetics for Multiple Analytes are numerous problems faced with many of the standard biomolecular analysis tools, such as limited sensitivity, expensive set-up and per-test necessities, and space requirements that have prohibited their use outside of a dedicated laboratory space.

Nanopowder materials (nanoparticles, nanofibers) are loaded onto the CNT sheets to form bi-layered sheets, which are then scrolled into fibers. A key advantage of this technology is that it enables the functional nanopowder to be the largest component of the yarns constituting 95-99% (by weight) of the yarn, thereby ensuring that the properties exhibited by the yarn are largely those of the nanopowder. Nanopowders with d...Wed, 14 Mar 2012 14:05:20 GMTbrent.schultze@utdallas.edu Auto-Focus: Must-have technology for next generation digital cameras, 18 Jul 2011 12:38:11 GMTbrent.schultze@utdallas.edu Charge Injection Tuning of Carbon Nanotube Sheets – Offering Novel Supercapacitor Technology, 06 Jul 2011 11:38:17 GMTbrent.schultze@utdallas.edu Auto Exposure for Digital and Cell Phone Cameras and Imaging Systems, 06 Jul 2011 11:08:08 GMTbrent.schultze@utdallas.edu Carbon Nanotube Assemblies invention is a novel method for processing nanotube powders into polymer-free structures that have superior electrical, mechanical, and electrochemical properties to those of existing polymer-inclusive structures. Flocculation fiber spinning of carbon nanotubes from aqueous dispersions with the aide of polymer-free flocculating agents produces structures such as fibers, ribbons, ropes, yarns and films of carbon nanotubes. As a result, the properties of fibers are determined by carbon nanotubes only; they are not affected by the presence of a polymeric binder.Overcoming limitations on low ...Wed, 06 Jul 2011 11:03:59 GMTbrent.schultze@utdallas.edu Artificial Muscles, 06 Jul 2011 09:39:33 GMTbrent.schultze@utdallas.edu HDAC Inhibitors for the Treatment of Cancers and Sickle Cell Disease, 06 Jul 2011 07:37:56 GMTbrent.schultze@utdallas.edu and System for Improving SPECT Imaging Resolution, 30 Jun 2011 11:14:49 GMTbrent.schultze@utdallas.edu Tracking System: 21st Century Facilities Management, 30 Jun 2011 11:00:57 GMTbrent.schultze@utdallas.edu Cooperation Diversity in Signal Coding for Wireless Communication invention is a software solution that builds on the concept of user cooperation in wireless communications and displays benefits across virtually all wireless standards and industries.
