Oxygen functionalized graphene nanoflake, a stable and surfactant-free graphene nanoflake nanofluid and method from making same

The present describes an oxygen functionalized nanoflake (o-gnf), a stable nanofluid in which the graphene nanoflakes remain dispersed or in suspension free of surfactants, and the method of making the oxygen-functionalized nanoflake. The oxygen-functionalized graphene nanoflake (o-gnf and/or o—n-gnf) comprises a single-crystal graphene nanoflake of 5-20 atomic planes comprising a surface oxygen-functionalization, wherein the o-gnf comprise a degree of oxygen functionalization from about 6 to about 25 at. ...

System and method for processing non-lignocellulosic waste

A method for processing non-lignocellulosic waste comprises pre-treating the non-lignocellulosic waste by enzymatic hydrolysis to yield a pre-treated non-lignocellulosic waste subjecting the pre-treated non-lignocellulosic waste to microwave hydrothermal carbonization to yield at least one of a hydrochar and a biocrude liquor. A system for processing non-lignocellulosic waste includes an enzymatic hydrolysis station for receiving non-lignocellulosic waste and generating a treated non-lignocellulosic waste, and a microwave hydrothermal carbonization station downstream of the enzymatic hydrolysis station for receiving the treated non-lignocellulosic waste from the enzymatic hydrolysis station and generating at least one of a hydrochar and a biocrude liquor.. ...

Methods and systems for wireless crowd counting

Robust crowd counting is an important yet challenging task of interest in a number of applications and is compounded by the fact that crowd behavior is unpredictable. Traditional approaches that tackle these issues are mainly classified into two categories: video based recognition and non-image based localization. ... Mcgill University

Markers to predict macrocyclic lactone drug resistance in dirofilaria immitis, the causative agent of heartworm disease

Disclosed are nucleic acid molecules from the genome of dirofilaria spp. Nematodes that contain single nucleotide polymorphisms related to reduced responsiveness of the nematodes to macrocyclic lactones. ... Mcgill University

Nanowire enabled paper based haptic interfaces

Paper, as a ubiquitous material in everyday life, has recently emerged as flexible substrates for electronics. It offers a basis for functional electronic modules with advantages of low cost, ease of fabrication, good printability, high flexibility, and light weight. ... Mcgill University

Methods and systems relating to high resolution magnetic resonance imaging

The inventors have established design principles for phased-array mri coils from the considerations of the target region of the anatomy being evaluated and physical anatomy of the patients. Accordingly, the inventors have demonstrated shape-optimized phased array coils with dense packing of 32 channels for posterior-head imaging exhibiting the snr gains required to realize not only sub-millimeter fmri bold imaging but also allowing single-shot gradient echo-epi imaging to be performed upon general 3 t mri instruments. ... Mcgill University

Flexible polar encoders and decoders

Modern communication systems must cope with varying channel conditions and differing throughput constraints. Polar codes despite being the first error-correcting codes with an explicit construction to achieve the symmetric capacity of memoryless channels are not currently employed against other older coding protocols such as low-density parity check (ldpc) codes as their performance at short/moderate lengths has been inferior and their decoding algorithm is serial leading to low decoding throughput. ...

Methods and devices for microelectromechanical resonators

Mems based sensors, particularly capacitive sensors, potentially can address critical considerations for users including accuracy, repeatability, long-term stability, ease of calibration, resistance to chemical and physical contaminants, size, packaging, and cost effectiveness. Accordingly, it would be beneficial to exploit mems processes that allow for manufacturability and integration of resonator elements into cavities within the mems sensor that are at low pressure allowing high quality factor resonators and absolute pressure sensors to be implemented. ...
