Hybrid MOD-Enmat Lens
Researchers at the University of Arizona have designed an optical device comprising a multiple-order diffractive Fresnel lens (MOD-DFL) and an achromatizing compensation mechanism that reduces refractive dispersion created by the MOD-DFL, thereby reducing the focal range of the MOD-DFL. A method is also provided of using the optical device in an image...

Carbon Capture Using Microalgae Cultivated in Scalable Photobioreactors Paired with a Particle Filtration System
This invention offers a method to offset carbon emissions for industries where carbon-neutral operations are particularly challenging (e.g., airlines, shipping). Due to the intrinsic scalability of this invention, it has a potential to provide the most cost-effective solution to massive (hundreds of ktons to Gtons-level) CO2 extraction, thereby contributing...
