Uppsala, Sweden

The Swedish University of Agricultural science is a university in Sweden. Although its head office is located in Ultuna, Uppsala, the university has several campuses in different parts of Sweden, the other main facilities being Alnarp in Lomma Municipality, Skara, and Umeå. Unlike other state owned universities in Sweden, it is funded through the budget for the Ministry for Rural Affairs.The university has four faculties: Faculty of Landscape Planning, Horticulture and Agricultural science, Faculty of Natural Resources and Agriculture science, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science and Faculty of Forest science. SLU had in 2012 3080 full-time staff, 3935 full-time students, 714 research students and 241 professors.In the 2007 Academic Ranking of World Universities, SLU was ranked in 5-9 place in Sweden, 81-123 in Europe and 203-304 in the world.

Patent
Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences | Date: 2016-09-21

A device for capturing optical information configured for being installed in a recess of an exterior surface of a vehicle, comprising at least an imaging means configured for obtaining optical information of the surroundings of the vehicle. The imaging means are movable between an operating position and a non-operating position, wherein in the non-operating position the imaging means is able to be located in the recess of the vehicle. The device also comprises a protective cover configured for being able to cover the opening of the recess when the imaging means is in an operating position outside the recess.

A circuit (4) for establishing a desired impedance value for a radio antenna (5) comprising a transistor (3) having an input (8) and an output terminal (6), and a printed radio frequency transformer comprising a first (1) and a second inductor (2), both inductors (1, 2) having a coupling factor value, and having a first and a second terminal (11, 12; 21, 22). The first terminal (11) of the first inductor (1) is adapted for connecting a radio antenna (5). The input terminal (8) of the transistor (3) is connected to the second terminal (12) of the first inductor (1), and the output terminal (6) of the transistor (3) is connected to the first terminal (21) of the second inductor (2), so that the desired impedance value (Z_(2)) at the second terminal (22) of the second inductor (2) is determined by the inductance value of the second inductor (2).

The present invention relates to a device and method for the drying of products, which can also be used for the activation of resins covering said products, comprising a modular system having a scalable cross-section, formed by one or more non-metal filament infrared lamps with carbon fibre which are encapsulated in a single or twin quartz tube, the upper part of the tube being coated with a gold reflector and cooled with air, maximising the use of convective and fast-response radiant energy. The warm air generated can be recirculated by a first fan and propelled for use, said warm air being applied against the product by diffusers, such that the vapours extracted are incinerated by an incineration device before being released to the outside.

A pillar assembly for a vehicle can include a substrate, a transparent layer, and a transparent flexible film layer sealed between the substrate and the transparent layer. The film layer can have disposed thereon or attached thereto an opaque material defining apertures corresponding to displayable elements, a capacitive-sensing layer, a plurality of light emitting devices disposed proximate to the apertures, and wiring connected to the plurality of light emitting devices and the capacitive-sensing layer, the wiring being configured to connect to control circuitry. A method of manufacturing a pillar assembly can utilize two separate film layers with a transparent or translucent polymer injected therebetween and a transparent material, such as polyurethane, flooded over an outer surface.

A system and method of optical spectrum analysis that circumvents the trade-off between resolution and sensitivity by combining two spectral measurements: a first spectrum (102) from first spectral measurement means (240), having high resolution and low sensitivity; and a second spectrum (103) from second spectral measurement means (220), having lower resolution but higher resolution. The input of the of the first spectral measurement means (240) is amplified by an optical amplifier (230), being the effects induced by said amplifier (230) on the first spectrum (102) corrected at processing means (270) by comparison with the second spectrum (103).
