A.C.T.S.
(Abnormal Cell Therapy Solutions)

Consider a different perspective:

Whether we appreciate the fact or not, our bodies, and every other living creature, are amazingly intricate, finely-tuned, self-regulating machines.

Normally, our bodies are capable of identifying and destroying cancerous cells - those cells that for a myriad of causes, have had their "off" buttons disabled, leading to uncontrolled growth.

The end result is either the destruction of a tumour, typically through chemo-therapy, gene-therapy, irradiation, or surgery, or the failure of the host mechanism (death).

Fortunately, cancers, being living cells, also have weaknesses, which treatments such as chemo-therapy and gene-therapy attempt to exploit.

Qualight is approaching the treatment of tumour-based (carcinoma) cancer from an engineering perspective, rather than a biological perspective. By accessing the mechanical weaknesses of cancerous cells, our goal is to target the specific abnormal cells, while causing a minimal amount of damage to surrounding healthy tissue, and with minimal side effects.

(Room Temperature Superconductor Research)

Since the discovery of the superconductivity property in mercury by Dutch physicist Heike Kamerlingh Onnes, Leiden University, in 1911, the field of superconductivity has been constantly evolving as new engineered materials are developed, pushing the temperature limits of superconductivity to new levels.

In 1986, Alex Müller and Georg Bednorz, IBM Research Laboratory, Rüschlikon, Switzerland, discovered superconducting properties (Tc = 30-58 K) in a synthesized Lanthanum, Barium, Copper and Oxygen compound. Prior to this discovery,ceramic compounds were not being considered viable candidates for high-temperature superconductors due to their normally insulative properties.

The world record Tc of 203 K is now held by H2S (at 150 GPa pressure) - the same gas that gas that gives rotten eggs their smell. The new record holder was discovered by the Max Planck-led team, and involved by cooling it and subjecting it to high pressures by means of a diamond anvil to a pressure of 1.5 megabars (approximately half the pressure found at the Earth's core).

Qualight is engaged in the development of a true room-temperature superconductive material, capable of maintaining superconductive characteristics at temperatures above 32o F (0o C).
