The University of New Brunswick is a public university with campuses located in Fredericton and Saint John, New Brunswick. It is the oldest English language university in Canada. It is one of four schools that claim the title of oldest public university in North America . UNB was founded by a group of seven Loyalists who left the United States after the American Revolution.UNB has two main campuses: the original campus, founded in 1785 in Fredericton, and a smaller campus which opened in Saint John in 1964. In addition, there are two small satellite health science campuses located in Moncton and Bathurst, New Brunswick, and two offices in the Caribbean and in Beijing. UNB offers over 75 degrees in fourteen faculties at the undergraduate and graduate levels with a total student enrollment of approximately 11,400 between the two principal campuses. In the fall of 2010, UNB partnered with Dalhousie University and the government of New Brunswick to open the first English-language medical school in the province at the Saint John campus.

Patent
University of New Brunswick | Date: 2013-01-31

A process using a multicomponent enzyme preparation to treat screened once refined pulps and reduces the specific energy consumption and/or increasing production while maintaining or increasing handsheet physical properties. The enzyme preparation has a major endoglucanase activity, a significant mannanase activity and a relatively small cellobiohydrolase activity. This enzyme mixture is prepared from a genetically modified strain of


Patent
University of New Brunswick | Date: 2013-01-31

A process using a multicomponent enzyme preparation to treat chips that have been crushed using a device that combines shear and compressive forces where treatment occurs mainly during decompression and reduces the specific energy consumption and/or increasing production of subsequent refining while maintaining or increasing handsheet physical properties. The enzyme preparation is to have a major endoglucanase activity, a significant mannanase activity and a slight cellobiohydrolase activity. This enzyme mixture is prepared from a genetically modified strain of


Patent
University of New Brunswick | Date: 2014-01-30

A process for pretreating lignocellulosic biomass that increases monomeric sugar yields in subsequent enzymatic hydrolysis and reduces specific energy consumption during production of the hydrolysable material. The pretreatment includes a chemical treatment followed by a mechanical size reduction such as a disc refining step, and includes a second chemical treatment, harsher than the first, which may precede or follow the size reduction.

An optical phase-locked loop (OPLL) comprising a phase-frequency detector; first and second lasers; a local oscillator; a detector and a low pass filter connected in a circuit comprising a feedback path. The OPLL can also include a pre-scaler, a second local oscillator and a mixer.

Methods of performing surface profilometry are provided. A low coherence light beam is scanned relative to a sample surface. The intensity of interference fringes generated by the interference of a sample beam and a reference beam are recorded by an image sensor. Variations of light intensity around each pixel are calculated in terms of variance or standard derivation. The peak position of variance on a particular location along vertical scan direction is identified as the scan position corresponding to zero optical path difference between the reference and measuring beams. A topography map (height map) may be generated using the relative scanning position where zero optical path difference occurs at each location on sample surface.
