Chien M Wai, Kenneth Laintz: Supercritical fluid extraction. Idaho Research Foundation, Klarquist Sparkman Campbell Leigh & Whinston, October 18, 1994: US05356538 (67 worldwide citation)

A method of extracting metalloid and metal species from a solid or liquid material by exposing the material to a supercritical fluid solvent containing a chelating agent. The chelating agent forms chelates that are soluble in the supercritical fluid to allow removal of the species from the material. ...

Kelly Cameron, Patrick A Owsley: Reed-Solomon Euclid algorithm decoder having a process configurable Euclid stack. Idaho Research Foundation, Haverstock Medlen & Carroll, December 8, 1992: US05170399 (51 worldwide citation)

A Reed-Solomon Galois Field Euclid algorithm error correction decoder solves Euclid's algorithm with a Euclid stack which can be configured to function as a Euclid divide or a Euclid multiply module. The decorder is able to resolve twice the erasure errors by selecting .GAMMA.(x) and T(x) as the ini ...
