||PCT/SG2015/050076||NGEE ANN POLYTECHNIC||PRINCE, James Antony|
The present invention relates to a graphene-based membrane and a method of producing the same. The graphene-based membrane comprises a graphene-polymer composite, wherein the graphene-polymer composite consists of an amine functionalized graphene and a polymer containing an anhydride group as a linker for linking the amine functionalized graphene to the polymer. The graphene-based membrane is constructed of a single-layer. The method of the present invention comprises the steps of reacting a polymer containing an anhydride with an amine functionalized graphene in presence of a solvent to form an intermediate product; and thermal imidizing the intermediate product to form a graphene grafted polymer composite for use in fabricating a graphene-based membrane.
WO/2016/171616 A FLOODGATE||WO||27.10.2016|
||PCT/SG2015/050078||PARAFOIL DESIGN & ENGINEERING PTE LTD||QUEK, Jwee Thiam|
A floodgate is provided. The floodgate has a panel configured to be movable between an opened position and a closed position wherein in the opened position, the panel forms a barrier against flood water. First and second extendable members coupled to the panel exert a force to move the panel from the closed position towards the opened position about at least one hinge. A deactivation mechanism is operable to deactivate the first extendable member when the panel is moved from the closed position towards the opened position, thereby reducing force exerted by the first extendable member against the panel when the panel is moved from the opened position towards the closed position.

||PCT/SG2016/050188||INFINITY OPTICS SOLUTIONS PTE LTD||MATHIEU, Gilles|
An iris recognition system may include an optical system having an intentional amount of spherical aberration that results in an extended depth of field. A raw image of an iris captured by the optical system may be normalized. In some embodiments, the normalized raw image may be processed to enhance the MTF of the normalized iris image. An iris code may be generated from the normalized raw image or the enhanced normalized raw image. The iris code may be compared to known iris codes to determine if there is a match. In some embodiments, the iris code generated by the normalized iris image may be processed with equalization function before comparison with the known iris codes.
