  • Patent number: 4133911
    Abstract: The invention relates to an improved process for the manufacture of magnetic discs carrying very thin magnetic layers, by applying a fluid dispersion of magnetic materials in a binder mixture to rigid base discs by the spin-coating process. Above the side of the base disc which is to be provided with the magnetic layer, there are arranged means which produce an aerodynamic boundary layer above the discs during rotation of the latter. This avoids the formation of surface irregularities and of coating streaks during production of the layer by spin-coating.

  • Patent number: 4133009
    Abstract: A color video tape recording/playback system with a magnetic tape unit and possibly a color video camera comprises at least one signal storage means, e.g. a charge-coupled device (CCD), for the intermediate storage of the video information, thus enabling the recording to be carried out with a reduced bandwidth or at a reduced tape speed and, if applicable, with a reduction of time base errors. Skip line or skip field methods are used or the grouping of several lines is exploited. The reduction of time base errors during playback is achieved by clocking out the stored signal from the charge-coupled device at the rhythm of the tape speed fluctuations in the tape recorder.

  • Patent number: 4131640
    Abstract: A process for the separation of rhodium from a solution containing a rhodium carbonyl complex such as is obtained in the carbonylation of an alkanol or of an olefinically or acetylenically unsaturated compound with carbon monoxide and water and conversion of the separated rhodium into a soluble rhodium carbonyl complex, in which the solution containing the rhodium carbonyl complex is treated with hydrogen in the presence of a carrier substance at a temperature of from 25.degree. to 300.degree. C and at a pressure of from 1 to 700 atmospheres, the solution freed from rhodium is separated and the rhodium precipitated on the carrier is converted into a soluble rhodium carbonyl complex by treatment with carbon monoxide in the presence of a solvent and a compound which can replace the carbon monoxide as a ligand at a temperature of from 20.degree. to 300.degree.
