The proposed ballast is able to carry out dimming control and self-start with no need of auxiliary circuits and with a minimum number of external components.
DIT Hothouse posted this:New Anti-Counterfeit Technology - Pressure Sensitive HologramsDublin Institute of Technology (DIT) researchers have invented a unique, patented hologram that changes colour under pressure and has widespread applications for security, authentication and environmental sensing. Holograms are frequently used for security and authentication, and are commonly found on credit cards, bank notes, passports and concert tickets, as well as on a number of high value goods such as pharmaceutical drugs, clothing and accessories. They can also be used as sensors if the hologram is sensitive to changes in its environment, and for tamper detection for document security. Current holographic solutions are usually mass produced from a single master hologram, resulting in identical holograms, with serialisation applied via standard overprinting, allowing the holograms to be either tampered or copied. The pressure-sensitive optical device developed at DIT allows the production of true individual holograms. Specific customer codes can be embedded into the actual hologram during manufacture, making them extremely difficult to copy but very easy for the end user authentication through a pressure-induced colour change of the hologram. The colour change can be either temporary or permanent, depending on specific requirements. This optical device can be a purely visual feature to be used for authentication by the end customer/consumer using thumb pressure, or it can also be designed to be machine readable for automated checking within the supply chain.
UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:System for fixing armours during concretingThe research group “Materials and Construction Systems for Buildings”, from the Building and Urbanism Department of the University of Alicante, has developed a new and simple system that allows to fix any type of armours in concrete construction elements during the concreting process. This system avoids the movement of the armours in an efficient, technical and reusable way, and, therefore, also avoids future expensive treatments in case of unwanted movements. This new system is characterized by its low cost, light weight, ease of use and versatility for any constructive element. The research group is looking for companies interested in commercial exploitation.
UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Holographic sensor for detection of adulterants in essential oilsThe research group of Holography and Optical Processing of the University of Alicante has developed a holographic technique for the detection of adulterants in essential oils. This technique is able to detect different types of adulterants qualitatively. In addition, a quantitative measurement of the degree of adulteration of an essential oil can also be performed by means of pre-calibration of the sensor for a particular adulterant. The sensor could be miniaturized and manufactured at a low cost compared to traditional methods of analysis such as gas chromatography and high performance liquid chromatography. The sensor can be used by unqualified personnel.
NDI Foundation posted this:Strain of bacteriorhodopsin-BRBacteriorhodopsin (BR) is the newest biotechnological product that will make a revolution in many spheres of life: from medicine to defense. Data on the production of the BR in the world is hidden. From open sources - the only seller (and, possibly, producer) is an American company SIGMA, selling BR for research. We offer developed strain of BR. A method of producing allows to get BR in large quantities to several kg. The strain is certified and stored in special depositories. BR has unique qualities - the main one is - memory. For BR, it was necessary to find a special strain - producer of BR. Just several countries has the strain (USA, Russia, ..), other data hidden. We also developed such an unique strain.
NDI Foundation posted this:DSP - digital signal processor of new generationThe project offers new assembler, that’s High level assembler and New core of processor’s architecture. The invention is new generation device for signals processing. The proposed assembly language is based on a formulaic recording of mathematical operations, which greatly improves the process of creating programs and their debugging. Program language maximally adapted to the processing of data arrays, tables, etc. Temporary programming costs are reduced repeatedly and commensurate with programming in C, and in some cases even less, and resulted with efficient assembly code. Developed prototype of core DSP implemented and successfully tested. Complete set for work with the processor and software: simulator, compiler, debugger system tests, library routines etc. Prepared patent applications, including patent applications for DSP core architecture and instruction set, as well as some of the functional blocks. The developed core can be a base for a number of circuits intended for different applications. The proposed architecture of the core is not the final possible product. Currently the architecture of the microcontroller and the next version of DSP core with a flexible architecture and programming language are under development.
NDI Foundation posted this:NEW FLUORINATED CARBON MATERIALS FOR FUEL CELLS AND BATTERIESOur project is the solution for sorting out rechargeable batteries enchanted anode and fuel cells Proton Exchange Membranes (PEM) efficiency issues. We propose to start mass production and sales of the products based on the new technology of Soft Fluorination for Carbon Materials and products derived by this technology. Our product is globally prospective and ready for industrial use. The product is targeted to the following segments of clients: - fuel cells producers - proton exchange membranes (PEM); - energy storage systems - batteries and super-capacitors electrodes; - Super-acid Catalysts for numerous uses; - Fillers for fluorinated resins; - Biologically indifferent sorbents (e.g. for blood purification); - Hydro-isolation of resins adhesion of construction composite materials and pigments. As so far in the fuel still not realized their potential as a cost efficient, environmentally friendly and productive in converting available chemical energy into electric energy.

Universitat de Girona posted this:OMBR - OMBReuse (MBR retrofit to OMBR)The proposed technology is a concept that combines OMBR (osmotic membrane bioreactor) with MBR (membrane bioreactor) in a single module therefore it reduces the difficulties of installation and simplifies the operation system. Thus, this technology would renew all or part of the existing systems without the obligation to increase the volume installed and associated civil engineering costs. The fact that the OMBR modules are designed like the MBR module allows using the two types of membrane processes in the installed system.
