Less Lethal Ammunition for Peace Keeping

Western University

DescriptionResearchers at the University of Western Ontario have developed less lethal ammunition that addresses all the above criteria. Unlike other products that become rigid, and in fact lethal, in cold temperatures, this ammunition maintains its properties.Two types of projectiles have been developed and tested: the handgun projectile (20-gauge) and the long-gun projectile (12-gauge). Potential ApplicationsAreas of application for this technology include peacekeeping, defense, security...

Tunable ultrashort and intense light pulses generation method

Laval University

Description A source for generating tunable ultrashort and intense light pulses in an ultra-wide range of wavelengths is invented. The tunable pulses are generated through a parametric process inside the filament of an intense femtosecond laser pulse propagating in an optical medium. An example is to mix an infrared pulse inside the filament of the pump pulse in air which results in the efficient generation of tunable pulses in the visible regime. A conversion efficiency from the infrared...

Circuit, system and method for thin-film transistor logic gates

University of Waterloo

BackgroundThin-film transistors (TFT) are widely used in large-area electronics, suchas flat-panel displays and medical imagers. Owing to being a low-cost,simpler technology, only simple circuits can be fabricated in a typical TFTprocess.Some attempts by others have been made to realize digital logic circuits ina TFT process for smart flat panel applications. However these havealways come at a great cost and substantial, wasted power consumptionthat reduces energy efficiency for portable...

Fast frequency hopping spread spectrum for code division multiple access communications networks (FFH-CDMA)

Laval University

Description The present invention concerns an improved method and apparatus for optical and radio frequency implementation of a fast frequency hopping spread spectrum communication for code division multiple access systems. The method avoids the frequency hopping synthesizer requirements in the transmitter as well as in the receiver. In a system where a pool of CDMA users share a channel characterized by a number of F available frequencies (or frequency bands), each user is assigned a...

Functional autologous tissue-engineered adipose substitutes

Laval University

DescriptionSoft-tissue loss can be the result of accidents, congenital or acquired diseases, tumor ablation as well as aging. Reconstructive and cosmetic surgery procedures address these issues but current fat transplantation methods from one body site to another produce variable results with high volume resorption in the long-term. This is in part related to the fragility of mature adipose tissue and the need of rapid revascularization after grafting. The production of autologous...

Modified SPINDT Cold-Cathode Design

University Health Network

Cold cathode design with high stability and uniformity UHN and U of Waterloo scientists have developed a CNT-Spindt hybrid field-emitter that helps alleviate the problems faced by “cold-cathode” technologies for application in pulsed X-ray tubes (CT scanners without moving parts), and flat panel X-ray sources. Current “cold-cathode” technologies in development, i.e. Carbon nanotubes (“CNT”) and Spindt emitters, are directed at replacing traditional thermionic cathodes which suffer from high...
