WO/2016/061657 OPTICAL FIBER ASSEMBLY WITH BEAM SHAPING COMPONENT||WO||28.04.2016|
||PCT/CA2014/051024||CORACTIVE HIGH-TECH INC. ||MORASSE, Bertrand |
An optical fiber assembly is provided including an optical fiber and a beam shaping component affixed to an extremity of the optical fiber. The optical fiber supports a guided mode having a spatial profile defining a first shape. The beam shaping component defines a light path and has a transversal refractive index profile including an outer refractive index value greater than an inner refractive index value. The beam shaping component transforms the spatial profile of a light beam propagating along the light path between the first shape and a second shape different from the first shape. The optical assembly may for example transform a Gaussian light beam into a flat-top or donut shape.

A switch responsive to a pressure differential, including a pressure response mechanism for providing a pressure response in response to the pressure differential and a device actuator arranged to interact with the pressure response mechanism and to utilize the pressure response of the pressure response mechanism to actuate a device. The device actuator actuates the device to an operative state when the pressure differential is below a lower pressure differential threshold, and may actuate the device to a non-operative state when the pressure differential is above an upper pressure differential threshold.
WO/2016/061656 PRESENTING WIRELESS-SPECTRUM USAGE INFORMATION||WO||28.04.2016|
||PCT/CA2014/000826||COGNITIVE SYSTEMS CORP. ||MANKU, Tajinder |
In some aspects, a method of displaying wireless-spectrum usage information is described. In some examples, a surface plot of a measure of wireless-spectrum usage for a geographic region is generated. The surface plot is based on analysis of physical layer signals detected at wireless-spectrum monitoring locations distributed over the geographic region. The surface plot is superimposed onto a view of the geographic region by operation of a display device. The superimposed surface plot visually indicates values for the measure of wireless-spectrum usage over the view of the geographic region.
WO/2016/061658 DATABASE UPDATING WITH LATENCY TOLERANCE||WO||28.04.2016|
||PCT/CA2015/000411||TSX INC. ||DJURDJEVIC, Deana |
New data messages for updating a database can indicate a latency tolerance. The latency tolerance can constrain new data records based on such new data messages to also indicate the latency tolerance. Latency-tolerant data records can be constrained to remain in the working database for a minimum duration. Data records present in the working database can be prioritized according to prioritization criteria that increases priority of data records indicating latency tolerance. Matching incoming data messages with the data records present in the working database can be based on such prioritization. A matched data record can be updated or deleted upon successful match with an incoming data message. The latency tolerance can be applied to trading systems for financial instruments or interests as a long-life order that rests in an order book without being able to be cancelled or updated for the minimum duration in exchange for priority during order matching.

Various embodiments are described herein for a micro-antenna comprising a first substrate layer having a first antenna winding trace thereon: a second substrate layer having a second antenna winding trace thereon; and at least two couplers to couple the first and second antenna winding traces. Various embodiments are also described for a multilayer receiver that incorporates any of the micro-antenna embodiments described herein and microcircuitry.
WO/2016/061682 POST-MOLD RETAINING APPARATUS AND METHOD||WO||28.04.2016|
||PCT/CA2015/051064||ATHENA AUTOMATION LTD. ||SCHAD, Robert D. |
A retaining pin for handling injection molded preforms includes a body including an internal body flow channel, and a plunger coupled to the body and movable relative to the body between advanced and retracted positions. The plunger includes an internal plunger flow channel. The plunger further includes a plunger abutment surface directed away from the body. The plunger is biased toward the advanced position and movable to the retracted position by engagement of the plunger abutment surface with an inner surface of a closed end of a preform when the preform and retaining pin are moved toward each other. The body flow channel and the plunger flow channel are in fluid communication when the plunger is in the retracted position. Fluid communication between the plunger flow channel and the body flow channel is inhibited when the plunger is in the advanced position.
WO/2016/061685 ENDLESS DRIVE ARRANGEMENT AND IMPROVED TWO-ARMED TENSIONING SYSTEM FOR SAME||WO||28.04.2016|
||PCT/CA2015/051067||LITENS AUTOMOTIVE PARTNERSHIP ||RYELAND, Geoffrey W. |
In an aspect, a tensioner is provided for tensioning a belt and includes first and second tensioner arms having first and second pulleys respectively. The first and second pulleys are configured for engagement with first and second belt spans, and are biased in first and second free arm directions respectively. A second tensioner arm stop is positioned to limit the movement of the second tensioner arm in a direction opposite the second free arm direction. The second tensioner arm stop is positioned such that, in use, the second pulley is engaged with the endless drive member while the second tensioner arm is engaged with the second tensioner arm stop throughout a first selected range of operating conditions.

A memorial object including inner cremation contents, and a housing structure for housing the inner cremation contents, the housing structure being made of at least a first fluid, wherein the housing structure is maintainable in a predetermined solid shape only upon maintenance of the housing structure under a freezing temperature of the first fluid. Preferably the fluid is water. The invention provides a sustainable method of making a dissolvable memorial object or urn by transforming water into solid shape of ice encapsulating cremation ashes.
WO/2016/061696 EXPANSION OF THE GENETIC TOOLKIT FOR METABOLIC ENGINEERING OF CLOSTRIDIUM PASTEURIANUM: CHROMOSOMAL GENE DISRUPTION OF THE ENDOGENOUS CPAAI RESTRICTION ENZYME||WO||28.04.2016|
||PCT/CA2015/051080||CHUNG, Duane ||CHUNG, Duane |
By this invention, for the first time, a method for high-efficiency generation of gene knockouts in the anaerobic bacterium Clostridium pasteurianum is provided. Clostridium pasteurianum is a bacterium of substantial industrial importance, due to its selectivity and high productivity of the biofuel and biochemical n-butanol, and its ability to grow on a wide variety of inexpensive substrates. Notable among the substrates that it can utilize as a sole source of carbon and energy is glycerine, which is produced in increasing quantities globally as a by-product of biodiesel processing. The industrial exploitation of Clostridium pasteurianum has previously been impeded by the lack of genetic engineering tools for this bacterium. This invention continues to expand the genetic engineering toolkit for this bacterium. Included in the invention is a means for protecting newly introduced DNA from degradation by a newly identified restriction enzyme within Clostridium pasteurianum, called CpaAII. This restriction enzyme represents a significant barrier in the generation of gene knockouts in Clostridium pasteurianum using established tools. Further included within the invention is a mutant strain of Clostridium pasteurianum lacking another restriction enzyme, CpaAI, which acts as another barrier for genetic transformation of Clostridium pasteurianum.
WO/2016/061662 CONNECTORS WITH MOVABLE MAGNETIC COMPONENTS AND METHOD OF CONNECTING DEVICES||WO||28.04.2016|
||PCT/CA2015/000545||NANOPORT TECHNOLOGY INC. ||SZETO, Timothy Jing Yin |
A connector for an electronic device has a housing with a peripheral surface and guides defining first and second paths. The second path extends from a first location proximate the peripheral surface to a second location farther from the peripheral surface and closer to the first path. A magnetic contact assembly in the housing is magnetically movable along the first path between a first position for joining the connector in data communication with an adjacent connector, and a second position withdrawn from the peripheral surface. A magnet in the housing and is movable by attraction to an adjacent connector along the second path, to magnetically hold the connector to an adjacent connector. The guides are configured so that the magnet and the magnetic contact assembly magnetically bias one another inwardly along the first and second paths.
