Water treatment to eliminate cyanobacteria and other toxins by unmanned surface vehicles (USVs)
TS-058408 — Freshwater resources around the world are under stress due to naturally occurring events and human impacts, causing an increase in cyanobacteria blooms. These cyanobacteria release harmful toxins, known as cyanotoxins. The proposed USV degrades the toxins on-site with UV light, reducing the accumulation of toxins, preventing groundwater contamination, and improving water quality.
Treatment of cyanobacteria and cyanotoxins is necessary before they reach a critical point, or they can contaminate other environments. For example, waste produced by water treatment facilities serves as fertilizer for agricultural land, and if not properly treated, toxic cyanobacteria can grow in…

3DScope: Detecting 3D Model Clones
TS-057129 — Algorithm for extracting 3D models, indexing them using a value-insensitive normalization algorithm, and comparing the model indexes to detect cloned 3D models.
The unauthorized copying of 3D models robs designers of property, reduces innovation going into the creation of 3D models, creates liability for entities unknowingly using copied models, and indicates a lapse in IP security. With the vast amount of 3D assets in use, it is infeasible for humans to …

High Efficiency LED Designs Using Quantum Well Engineering
TS-057127 — Achieving high efficiency LEDs with green, amber and longer wavelengths using III-nitride/II-IV-nitride heterostructures as the active media.
Although extensive research and development over the past two decades has resulted in close to 100% external quantum efficiency (EQE) of InGaN based blue light emitting devices, efficiency of the longer visible wavelength emitting devices has remained relatively low. Spontaneous polarization origi…

Enhancing the mechanical performance of resistance spot welding of aluminum alloys to steel using chromium-rich Interlayers
TS-054040 — This is a new method of resistance spot welding of aluminum alloy and advanced high strength steel that creates a stronger bond by using a chromium-rich interlayer. The interlayer improves joint strength, ductility, and toughness compared to traditional methods.
Resistance welding is used to combine two metals at one point. This technique is used extensively in automotive manufacturing, combining an aluminum (Al) to an advanced high strength steel (AHSS) structure. Welding Al and AHSS together directly, however, does not create a high-quality bond, due to…

Ultrasonically assisted wire additive manufacturing process and apparatus
TS-054013 — The ultrasonically assisted wire additive manufacturing process and apparatus is a new innovation that uses power ultrasound (UA) for benefits in processing molten metals. The UA energy is directly applied in the local deposition pool, which makes this new hybrid process applicable for building parts with any size and geometry.
Additive manufacturing (AM) is the process of 3D printing for industrial use. Instead of countertop devices printing small toys from plastic, industrial AM is used on a much larger scale to create engine blocks, plane components, and many other products made of metal alloys. AM is traditionally do…
