Tech Line Coatings, Inc posted this:Correction of previous posting on this product. Several zero's were dropped.A new and non hazardous additive that improves the wear resistance and corrosion resistance of anodized components. Reduces the pore structure and allows a thinner anodic layer while producing superior characteristics. An example of corrosion improvement is in 2024 aluminum where a .0001" thick layer passed 336 hour salt spray with no problem and a .0006" layer with no seal coat exceeded 2000 hours in Type II anodizing. Parts in salt spray on 6061 have been in salt spray since Dec 2009 with no corrosion in type 2 and is equal or superior to Hard Coat.

Northeastern University's Center for Research Innovation posted this:A New E-Field Writable Magnetic Random Access Memory Based on MultiferroicsCurrently, magnetic random access memories (MRAMs) use a magnetic field to control corresponding magnetic states. Such systems are comparatively bulkier and are associated with high-power consumption. With ever changing life-style; the demand for faster, smaller and ultra-low power memory systems is significantly increasing. This approach allows for the development and use of a novel electric field (E-Field) controllable MRAMs based on multi-ferroics.

UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Natural hybrids nanopigments synthesis for multiple industrial applications.The Colour and Vision Research Group of the University of Alicante has been designed a new process to develop nano-structured hybrid nanopigments (from synthetic or natural dyes). These nanopigments confer improved optical, thermal, and mechanical properties when they were applied on composite materials. The nanoclays, dyes, and additives have been selected depending on the composite matrix source. Also, it has been selected the additives order in the process of synthesis, based on the material properties that would be going to improve. The parameters that could be control with this new system are: the adsorbed dye concentration, the degradation temperature of the reinforced dye, the degradation temperature of the final nanocomposite, the bending resistant modulus, and the UV-VIS colour fastness. Also, it can be controlled the optical properties as transparency and colouring power degree. It is looking for companies interested in commercial exploitation of these new colored nanomaterials.
Fundació URV posted this:ELECTRE-H software package: a tool for data analysis and decision aiding with hierarchical criteriaThe ELECTRE-H Software Package implements two new methods for ranking and ordered classification decision problems considering multiple criteria structured into a hierarchy. The hierarchy of criteria is a tool that allows the decision maker to better organize the problem based on its domain knowledge and needs, decomposing the general problem into smaller sub-problems. Both methods follow the well-known outranking model and belong to the family of ELECTRE methods. The ELECTRE approach is inspired on the voting-like procedure based on the opinion of the majority but also respecting the minorities (by allowing veto power). The software available to use ELECTRE methods does not allow a hierarchical decomposition of the problem, but on a flat organization of criteria. The ELECTRE-H for hierarchical sets of criteria was defined by Dr. Del Vasto and Dr. Valls (from URV) and Dr. Slowinski and Dr. Zielniewicz (from Poznán University of Technology, Poland). The papers can be found here: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0957417415001153 http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10844-015-0362-7 The novelties of these two methods are the following: -It fully applies the standard outranking procedure of ELECTRE at all the levels of the hierarchy of criteria (concordance and discordance indices are obtained from the results of the previous layer and exploited at each node to generate new results). -The user will get a result (a ranking or classification) at each intermediate node of the hierarchy as well as the root (or overall) node. -Preference uncertainty can be managed at each node of the hierarchy with its particular discrimination threshold values. -Veto power can be given to the appropriate nodes in the hierarchy, to avoid compensation with the rest of related criteria. -Different scales of measurement can be used both in the elementary criteria and in the intermediate criteria. -For the case of sorting, simple IF…THEN… decision rules are used to define the categories. The novelty of the software ELECTRE-H is that it is the implementation of these methods given by the authors. This guarantees that the program is fully following the methodology proposed. Its main features are: -Clear and easy-to-understand user interface. -Data can be easily provided using an Excel file. -All the parameters of the model can be easily changed in the user interface. -The results obtained can be graphically displayed (i.e. partial pre-orders, rankings) and exported into a PNG image or text files. Also, the calculations of the results are provided in log files. -Additional statistical tools to compute correlations for different ranking and classification results on the same set of alternatives and hierarchy are available. - A distance-based statistical tool to compare partial preorders is available. -The “Simos revised procedure” to calculate numerical values for criteria weights is available. -Analysis of the results can be done at different levels of the hierarchy. -The software supports large number of alternatives and criteria. Also the structure of the hierarchy is only limited to be a tree (each node has a single parent). The software is designed to be easy to use while providing the full functionality required in these two methods.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Mode-Locked pulsed Laser using Saturable AbsorberThe research group in Photonic Engineering from Alcalá University, in collaboration with CSIC, offers a mode-locked pulsed laser whose optical resonator comprises a saturable absorber based on nitrides of group III. The use of this type of materials as saturable absorber allows to achieve a high stability and emission energy without increasing the complexity of the system. Its applications cover areas as diverse as medicine, industry, optical communications and scientific research. The group seeks for companies in these sectors to sign technical cooperation agreements, commercial agreements with technical assistance or patent licensing agreements.
Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla posted this:DETECTING NUDITY IN DIGITAL IMAGESThe present invention provides a process for detecting nudity in digital images, applied to the filtration of digital images with pornographic content in the Internet and digital images with pornographic content in standard computer equipments. This process applies techniques of the digital image processing such as pixel segmentation, recognition and selection of regions, as well as operations in the regions found within digital images with the purpose of detecting nudity. The segmentation under the colour HSV model is used for locating and separating the pixels corresponding to human skin, as well as the algorithm RSOR for recognising and separating the region with the highest number of skin pixels within the segmented image (highest region) and evaluating the digital images.
University of Huelva posted this:Construction procedure of vertical wells with interior claddingThe invention is about a method of constructing vertical large wells, which are excavated by bivalve spoons, and are composed with an inner cladding based on cylindrical rings of reinforced concrete. The invention is especially intended for the excavation of wells in soils with clayey or silty layers, which do not easily disintegrate and therefore make it difficult to lower the cylindrical rings which will form the inner coating or cladding.
