Interleaved Training And Limited Feedback For Multiple-Antenna Systems

Multi-antenna communication schemes provide greater link quality and reliability than single antenna systems, but also require coordination between the antennas for maximum effect. The traditional method of training (aligning) the antennas before data transmission becomes infeasible for arrays with many transmitters. The inventors at UCI have made many antennas accessible by interleaving the training and feedback stages.

Patient Initiated Controlled Analgesic Remote Dispenser (PICARD)

Misuse, abuse, and diversion of prescription drugs are a major health problem in the United States, where opioid overdose caused more deaths than suicide and car accidents combined in 2013. The inventors at UCI have developed the Patient Initiated Controlled Analgesic Remote Dispenser (PICARD) system that increases patient adherence to prescribed drug protocols by requiring authentication (such as a fingerprint), dispensing single pills, and recording each event.

Sunlight-driven Ion pump for use in Solar Photo-dialysis Technology

The invention is a specialized membrane that absorbs solar energy to directly drive desalination of salt water. Compared to state of the art devices, the invention is capable of bypassing the inefficient conversion from electronic energy to ionic energy, saving up to 85% of the energy required by other state of the art electrodialysis cells.

Amplifying and Detecting Nucleic Acids Within Crude Samples

Diagnosing diseases or determining compound safety often relies on bioassays to detect foreign nucleic acids (biomarkers) in crude biological, environmental, or pharmaceutical samples involving sample preprocessing which can be insensitive, timely, and expensive. The invention provides methods, systems, and compositions for amplifying, detecting, and quantifying nucleic acids from crude samples.

Label Free Assessment Of Embryo Vitality

Researchers at UC Irvine developed an independent non-invasive method to distinguish between healthy and unhealthy embryos.

Low Cost Wireless Spirometer Using Acoustic Modulation

The present invention relates to portable Spirometry system that uses sound to transmit pulmonary airflow information to a receiver.

Substrate For Deep Vertical Etches

Many modern microelectromechanical and microembossing applications require the formation of high resolution vertical channels through thin film substrates, which are often difficult and expensive to achieve in current substrates. Researchers at UCI have overcome these limitations by developing an inexpensive material that is inherently easy to vertically etch.

Microfluidic In Situ Labelling On Stable Interfaces

The invention consists of a method for creating lateral cavity acoustic transducer (LCAT) devices with stable liquid-air interfaces capable of trapping particles in a user-specified size range. The devices can be used to trap small quantities of fluorescently-tagged cancer cells, leading to the potential for earlier detection and better treatment outcomes.
