Albert L Latter: Artificial and solar lighting system. R & D Associates, Poms Smith Lande & Rose, January 20, 1981: US04246477 (40 worldwide citation)

A sunlight collector, containing a Fresnel lens, is mounted on the roof of a building and tracks the sun during daylight hours. A concentrated beam of sunlight is directed through a light transmission channel to locations within the building where the light is distributed. The transmission channel u ...

Albert L Latter, James L Dooley, R Philip Hammond: Engine system using liquid air and combustible fuel. R & D Associates, Poms Smith Lande & Rose, November 16, 1982: US04359118 (15 worldwide citation)

An engine system operates on liquid air and LNG, with the LNG being burned to obtain more energy from an expansion engine using the liquid air as the working fluid; and the liquid air is employed to trap or prevent the undesired venting of LNG fumes, which could otherwise burn or explode.

Albert L Latter, R Philip Hammond, James L Dooley: Retrofittable nuclear reactor core catcher. R & D Associates, Poms Smith Lande & Rose, April 10, 1984: US04442065 (12 worldwide citation)

A passive "core catcher" is provided for preventing the escape of radiation in the unlikely event of a major failure of a nuclear reactor by melt-down of the core. The "core-catcher" structure includes a narrow vertically downwardly extending isolation tube, and aligned narrow heat-exchange structur ...

Albert L Latter, R Philip Hammond, James L Dooley: Unthrottled lean mixture gasoline engine. R & D Associates, Poms Smith Lande & Rose, August 12, 1980: US04216745 (11 worldwide citation)

A gasoline internal combustion engine is operated at all times with a full charge of air and is thus unthrottled. At low power levels for such an engine, the ratio of gasoline to air is too lean for normal combustion; therefore, special arrangements are provided by this invention for ensuring combus ...

Albert L Latter, R Philip Hammond, James L Dooley: Engine system using liquid air and combustible fuel. R & D Associates, Poms Smith Lande & Rose, October 19, 1982: US04354565 (7 worldwide citation)

An automobile engine runs on liquid air plus a small amount of solid or liquid fossil fuel. The liquid is an efficient method of storing the energy of liquefaction. To get extended range and use of energy effectively some fuel is used to increase the temperature of this gas before it is introduced i ...

Albert L Latter, R Philip Hammond, James L Dooley: Engine system using liquid air and combustible fuel. R & D Associates, Poms Smith Lande & Rose, October 7, 1980: US04226294 (7 worldwide citation)

An automobile engine runs on liquid air and gasoline. The liquid air is initially pumped up to a high pressure such as 200 atmospheres (or 200 bars) and is then warmed toward the ambient temperature in a heat exchange and changes to the gaseous state. Subsequently, it is permitted to expand, doing u ...
