Zonal UWB Receiver

An ultra-wideband (UWB) receiver is a short range wireless communications technology currently gaining popularity for use with personal area networking (PAN) applications such as wireless monitors, camcorders, and other high bandwidth devices.  UWB utilizes a very large frequency range in order to drastically increase the available bandwidth without interfering with existing traditional communications devices, even […]

Non-Repeating Interval Sequences for Coded Imaging and Multi-User Communications

Coded excitation is widely used in ultrasound, radar, sonar and other imaging systems as well as in communication systems. Coded excitation involves the transmission of long-duration pulses with a time-bandwidth product (TBP) greater than 1. By coding the pulse on transmission, the received signals may be processed to compress (decode) the effective impulse response, and […]

Fluorinated Fructose Derivatives for PET Imaging

Positron emission tomography (PET) is a non-invasive nuclear medicine imaging technique that produces a three-dimensional image of physiological processes and tissue microenvironments, which is used fordiagnosing and/or treating diseases including cancer, heart disease, and brain abnormalities. Traditionally,tumour imaging with PET relies on the use of the glucose analogue 2-deoxy-2-fluoro-D-glucose(FDG) as the imaging agent, which takes […]

Bloom Burton has high praise for the TEC Edmonton Health Accelerator

It was what you could realistically call a ringing endorsement of TEC Edmonton’s new TEC Health Accelerator, from Canada’s top health care investment banking firm, no less.

“Quite frankly, we first came to Edmonton secretly dreading the pitch we thought we’d hear from TEC,” said Brian Bloom, co-founder and president of Canada’s leading health care investment […]

Meta-material Thermal Emitter for Thermo-Photovoltaics

Heat is considered as a byproduct of industrial processes. For example, average oil and coal based energy conversion processes account for thermal losses roughly within 50% to 60% of the total produced power. For small internal combustion engines, this number may climb as high as 75%. Thermal losses are also significant for renewable energy systems, […]
