This is a novel seedless floating growth technique for synthesis of a variety of hybrid nanostructures on graphene, primarily for electronic and optoelectronic applications. 

This invention provides an improved method for producing a novel interfacing capillary device that is less costly and more durable than existing sheathless devices.  This simplified production method does not require sample dilution, etching, or precision hand tools, and is automated and reproducible.  

The invention describes a small, light-weight, low-power, multichannel radio that receives signals from ground based commercially-licensed broadcast transmitters and analyzes these signals to estimate the receiver's position, groundspeed and heading. Other technologies providing navigation data from ground-based RF broadcasters require a local ground based reference station.
