Inductive coupled plasma (ICP) dry etching using Chlorine (Cl2) and Boron trichloride (BCl3) gas, is one of the processes that is traditionally employed for etching GaN. However, there are certain drawbacks. The lithography resist with thickness as high as 10um may be burnt or becomes difficult to be removed. The Singapore research institution has developed a novel wet chemical etching technique of GaN using laser. The new technique eliminates the need for masks, thus there is no need for a lithography process.

Bronchial asthma (BA) is one of the most common chronic diseases among children. Globally, BA is estimated to affect 14% of all children. Asthma exacerbations accounts for more hospitalizations in children than any other chronic illness. Nearly 50% of all emergency visits and 35% of all hospitalizations are due to acute BA; these statistics underline the severity of the illness. For BA treatment, the medication is most commonly delivered through a pressurized metered-dose inhaler (pMDI). However, the use of pMDI has many challenges.

The development of building usually comes with uncertainties and risks due to factors like delays and lack of funds, regulation, site conditions,market conditions,poor workmanship, poor design, ineffective coordination, weather and so forth. Such risk and uncertainties have an impact on the completion and cost of development. Therefore, when managing such factors of risks and uncertainties, a real estate analyst requires experiences, skills and knowledge.

Automatic vision assessment and impairment detection for age related macular degeneration (AMD) through gaze analysis (AVIGA)

The AVIGA eye tracking device works by first constructing a test image gallery. Next, the device will detect any fundus anomaly by testing patient's vision, and estimate the degree of impairment. Based on a patient's fundus image analysis result, the system personalizes the test sequence by choosing images from the gallery. After generating the test sequence, for tracking patient's gaze according the detected gaze position, the chosen images are displayed adaptively to the patient. By comparing the gaze between a normal and impaired vision, estimate impairment is measured.

While most walking frames are designed for ground level ambulation, this unique walking frame additionally helps during stair climbing. The device can be folded for storage and transportation purposes. Furthermore, as the walking frame does not have any moving parts, this enables ease of use for elderly, injured or weak patients that need walking support. As the walking frame has been developed using the BCA guidelines, it would aid climbing staircases in most industrial and public buildings fitted with standard staircase dimensions.

The patented crosslinking method developed by the Singapore hospital uses water-labile and biocompatible polymers to generate nanofibers either on a cotton bandage cloth or on polymeric films via electrospinning processes, improving the durability of the resultant coating. The antimicrobial components used were able to promote wound healing while preventing microbial colonization, unlike the commercially available antiseptics or wound dressings.

Flaviviral infections are on the rise globally, and are causing human diseases such as dengue, Chikungunya and fatal Zika infections. These viruses (DENV, ZIKV) viruses are transmitted via the same Aedes mosquito vector. All flaviviral infections are closely related and have similar clinical symptoms such as high fever, muscle and joint pain, retro-orbital pain and skin rash. Accurate disease diagnosis is challenging.

Tricuspid Regurgitation (TR) refers to the backflow of blood from the right ventricle to the right atrium due to the malfunction of the tricuspid valve. The high venous backflow pressure leads to damage to vital organs such as the liver. Left untreated, 1 in 2 patients with moderate to severe TR will die within 4 years. Currently, TR ranks the second most common but most untreated disease in the United States due to a very high operative risk, where morbidity rate is 22%.

The standard diagnostic procedure for skin diseases is an invasive and often, painful skin biopsy. This invasive procedure has several disadvantages associated such as scarring, risk of infection, and error in sampling. Due to its invasive and painful nature, it is rarely performed in children. Advances in imaging technology provide non-invasive and non-contact modalities for skin disease diagnoses. OCT is considered a valuable imaging modality for skin diagnosis, primarily due to the balance it strikes between high image resolution and deep penetration into the tissues.
