Title: Asymmetric dipolar ring

Abstract

A device having a dipolar ring surrounding an interior region that is disposed asymmetrically on the ring. The dipolar ring generates a toroidal moment switchable between at least two stable states by a homogeneous field applied to the dipolar ring in the plane of the ring. The ring may be made of ferroelectric or magnetic material. In the former case, the homogeneous field is an electric field and in the latter case, the homogeneous field is a magnetic field.

  • This patent describes an improvement in a process for treating a sour hydrocarbon fraction containing mercaptans. It comprises: contacting the hydrocarbon fraction in the presence of an oxidizing agent with a basic solution containing a metal chelate effective in oxidizing the mercaptans to disulfides, the improvement comprising a dipolar compound.
  • This patent describes the method of electroseismic prospecting for the existence of hydrocarbon deposits by the detection of two immiscible fluids present in a porous subterranean formation. It comprises: initiating a seismic impact at a source location such that if the acoustical wavefront therefrom encounters a region of porous subterranean formation containing at least two immiscible fluids in a common pore space an electromagnetic signal originating from dipolar movement in the region and traveling from the region at the speed of light is produced and detecting the electromagnetic signal as an indication of the existence of likely hydrocarbon deposits inmore » the vicinity of the region.« less
  • A concentric ring flywheel with expandable separators, which function as torque couplers, between the rings to take up the gap formed between adjacent rings due to differential expansion between different radius rings during rotation of the flywheel. The expandable separators or torque couplers include a hook-like section at an upper end which is positioned over an inner ring and a shelf-like or flange section at a lower end onto which the next adjacent outer ring is positioned. As the concentric rings are rotated the gap formed by the differential expansion there between is partially taken up by the expandable separatorsmore » or torque couplers to maintain torque and centering attachment of the concentric rings.« less
  • An electrolyte includes an alkali metal salt; an aprotic solvent; and a redox shuttle additive including an aromatic compound having at least one aromatic ring fused with at least one non-aromatic ring, the aromatic ring having two or more oxygen or phosphorus-containing substituents.
  • This patent describes a ring laser. It comprises: a gas impervious block containing at least three tunnels meeting to form, at least in part, a closed-loop gas containing cavity; electromagnetic wave reflecting surfaces for reflecting a pair of counter-propagating electromagnetic waves to propagate along the closed-loop cavity substantially defined by the tunnels; a gas contained within the closed-loop cavity; a first electrode; a second electrode; the first and second electrodes positioned relative to each other to support a discharge current through the gas and establish a glow discharge region therebetween to induce a pair of counter-propagating laser beams to propagatemore » through the glow discharge region in a direction transverse to the direction of the discharge current.« less
