A laser material processing system comprises: a housing defining an engraving chamber, an xy laser beam steering system, a non-telescoping focus mechanism, and a camera system that facilitates production of engravings that exceed the xy dimensions of the engraving chamber and/or facilitates placement of an engraving depicted in a software user interface in a specific location in the work area. The housing includes a removable bottom panel that allows processing of workpieces of infinite thickness. The focus mechanism includes a carriage mirror subassembly, a sliding member moveably attached to the carriage mirror subassembly, and a focusing lens subassembly attached to a lower portion of the sliding member. The carriage mirror subassembly and focusing lens subassembly are configured to receive and focus a laser beam to a focal point. The focusing lens subassembly is adjusted along a z-axis by vertically sliding the sliding member.


An OFDMA system and method for dynamic allocation of sub-channels for a plurality of base stations. The allocation of frequencies may be performed by first allocating to the base stations a first plurality of sub-channels according to a static allocation, wherein the number of sub-channels allocated to each base station is less than the number of available sub-channels, thereby resulting in available remaining sub-channels for each base station that are not assigned in the static allocation, then, after receiving a request from a base station for increased throughput in the downlink and/or uplink direction, allocating at least one additional sub-channel to the requesting base station from among said remaining sub-channels not in use for static allocation according to a dynamic allocation.


The present invention provides methods for producing cannabinoids and cannabinoid analogs as well as a system for producing these compounds. The inventive method is directed to contacting a compound according to Formula I or Formula II with a cannabinoid synthase. Also described is a system for producing cannabinoids and cannabinoid analogs by contacting a THCA synthase with a cannabinoid precursor and modifying at least one property of the reaction mixture to influence the quantity formed of a first cannabinoid relative to the quantity formed of a second cannabinoid.

Photopolymer resin formulation for 3D printing enhancing the performance of 3D printed objects. In one example, additives comprising two photoinitiators with different absorption spectrums are used to achieve printing and post-curing processes. A thermal initiator can also be used to complete the post-curing process by baking at appropriate temperature. Additive combinations balanced to absorb some light in the near UV range of about 400 nm to about 420 nm absorption wavelength band or spectrum while fluorescing light at frequencies higher than their absorption wavelength allowing the creation of clear transparent materials using only near UV light sources (i.e., about 400 nm to about 420 nm) instead of deep UV (<400 nm) light sources.

Release liner forming structures (120) and methods of making and using the same. The methods of making the release liner (120) include thermoforming and sheet bending. The flexible release liner (120) may be used in conjunction with a rigid, transparent supporting surface (506). The release liner (120) may be developed from a flexible sheet (100) formed into a deformable resin fluid vat (110). A release layer (120), and additional structure if desired, can be formed of or include plastic, such as polyolefin or fluoropolymer. In some instances, the polyolefin is, or includes, polymethylpentene or a fluropolymer is fluorinated ethylene propylene. The optical and other properties of the release layer (120) can be altered with treatments and other materials to, for example, reduce over-penetration of a light beam or deform a release layer (120).


A system and method for best effort scheduling of uplink bandwidth requests, in which aggregate uplink bandwidth requests for best efforts services are received from the remote stations, the base station calculates bulk bandwidth, and the remote stations distribute bulk bandwidth to the requesting services.


The present invention provides an apparatus and methods for producing tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabichromenic acid (CBCA) and cannabichromenic acid (CBCA) in different ratios. The apparatus comprises:(i) a bioreactor comprising (a) an automated supply system configured to deliver a first automated supply of cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), a cannabinoid acid synthase, and a reaction mixture; and (b) a second automated system to cease the reaction; (ii) a controller configured to modify a property of the reaction mixture to produce the desired products; and (iii) an extractor configured to recover the tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabichromenic acid (CBCA) or cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) and cannabichromenic acid.


An Internet Protocol (IP) based communication system for transmitting and receiving data on a broadband wireless network that includes at least one base station and a plurality of remote stations capable of transmitting and receiving data. The data is encapsulated in Time Division Duplex (TDD) frames and represented by Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) symbols using a nominal channel bandwidth of less than 1.25 Megahertz.
