Technion Research & Development Foundation Ltd. and CSIC - Institute of Refrigeration | Date: 2017-03-29

An optical element for use in power adjustable spectacles comprises a front lens and a back lens which can slide laterally with respect to each other to achieve a first relative position and a second relative position. The optical element may be designed to provide good optical performance for far-distance viewing and for near-distance viewing, or to provide good optical performance for near-distance viewing and for intermediate-distance viewing. In some cases, the front lens and the back lens can slide laterally with respect to each other to achieve a third relative position, and the optical element may be designed to provide good optical performance for far-distance viewing, for intermediate-distance viewing and for near-distance viewing. In all cases, the predetermined addition of the prescription is in the range of 0.50 diopters to 3.00 diopters.

The invention provides an isolated multiple integration element (MIE) comprising, in the specified order: a) a homing endonuclease site (HE); b) a promoter selected from the group consisting of AOX1, FLD1, FMD1, GAP and TEF1; c) a BstBI restriction site; d) a sequence encoding a secretion signal; e) a Ncol restriction site; f) a selection marker gene; g) a Pmel restriction site; h) a DNA sequence encoding a detection and/or purification polypeptide; i) a terminator selected from the group consisting of AOX1, FLD1, FMD1, GAP and TEF1; and j) a BstXI restriction site, wherein the HE and BstXI sites are selected such that HE and BstXI result in compatible cohesive ends when cut by the homing endonuclease and the BstXI restriction enzyme, respectively, and the ligation product of HE and BstXI cohesive ends can neither be cleaved by the homing endonuclease nor the BstXI restriction enzyme.


Patent
CSIC - Institute of Refrigeration and Complutense University of Madrid | Date: 2017-03-01

The invention relates to a novel implant based on titanium, consisting of a titanium coating formed over biomaterials, applicable in bone implantology. The nanotopographical characteristics of said implants inhibit bacterial adhesion and formation of bacterial biofilm on the surface, the implants simultaneously exhibiting suitable properties for the adhesion, extension, and proliferation of the bone-forming cells. The invention also relates to a method for producing the implant by means of oblique incidence techniques and to the use thereof in bone implantology..


The invention relates to a method and a device for detecting the temporal variation of the light intensity in a matrix of photosensors, comprising a matrix of pixels, a block for the automatic adjustment of the amplification of the photocurrent, and an arbitrating and event-encoding block. Each pixel comprises a photosensor that generates a photocurrent, an adjustable gain current mirror connected to the outlet of the photosensor, a transimpedance amplifier arranged at the outlet of the current mirror, optionally at least one amplification circuit arranged at the outlet of the transimpedance amplifier, and capacitors and detectors of thresholds for determining whether the output voltage exceeds a higher threshold or drops below a lower threshold in order to generate an event in the pixel.

Photodiode comprising a transparent fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) layer, an active layer of a wide-bandgap semiconductor and an ionizable metal electrode, in which the active layer has been oxidized for 1-10 minutes at a temperature between 600 and 625. The photodiode thus manufactured has the highest photovoltaic field ever observed in a photovoltaic device. This enormous (MV/cm) photovoltaic field makes unprecedented above-bandgap voltages viable for very thin (less than 1 m) thin-film devices.
