  • Patent number: 8304756
    Abstract: An ultra-violet emitting light-emitting device and method for fabricating an ultraviolet light emitting device (LED) with an AlInGaN multiple-quantum-well active region exhibiting stable cw-powers. The LED includes a template with an ultraviolet light-emitting structure on it. The template includes a first buffer layer on a substrate, then a second buffer layer on the first preferably with a strain-relieving layer in both buffer layers. Next there is a semiconductor layer having a first type of conductivity followed by a layer providing a quantum-well region with an emission spectrum ranging from 190 nm to 369 nm. Another semiconductor layer having a second type of conductivity is applied next. Two metal contacts are applied to this construction, one to the semiconductor layer having the first type of conductivity and the other to the semiconductor layer having the second type of conductivity, to complete the LED.

  • Patent number: 8291633
    Abstract: A bipod for a light-weight machine gun is disclosed. The bipod has tubular telescoping legs with large ground-engaging feet that may be extended and retracted to discreet locking positions. The bipod has a spring-based system that allows a user to pivot the bipod legs about cylinder-in-a-cylinder pivot pins, either towards or away from the barrel muzzle with one hand, thus giving 180 degrees of travel. The bipod is attachable to a machine gun with a round yoke using a stepped screw and compression spring that assures yoke remains tightly secured to body, but rotatable for traversing, during extended use.

  • Patent number: 8283911
    Abstract: A long range wireless phasing voltmeter determines the phase difference between the time-varying voltage carried on a reference electrical conductor and another, field conductor. The voltage signal from the reference conductor is measured by a reference probe and compared by a first unit in communication with that reference probe to a precision 60 Hz signal generated from a GPS receiver. The phase difference between these, in the form of a nine-bit, audible signal using frequency shift keying to modulate the carrier frequency, is transmitted by the first unit to a second unit perhaps miles away. A receiver in the second unit decodes the signal and uses another precision 60 Hz signal generated from another GPS receiver to re-create a surrogate of the original reference voltage signal. This surrogate signal is forwarded to a meter probe that is measuring the signal on a field conductor. The meter probe can then compare the two signals to determine the phase angle difference between them.

  • Patent number: 8278631
    Abstract: Disclosed is a device for monitoring one or more of integral value of time and temperature, UV light exposure and a pre-determined temperature of an item. The device is useful for monitoring items or materials which are sensitive to time-temperature, UV light and/or a pre-determined temperature. Radiation sensitive devices such as self-indicating instant radiation alert dosimeters (SIRAD) can be accidentally, inadvertently or intentionally over exposed to time-temperature, UV light and a pre-determined higher temperature. Such over exposure can provide a false positive or false negative signal. A device based on polymerization of diacetylenes and melting of partially polymerized diacetylenes, both of which are associated with color changes, are proposed as false positive, false negative, and tamper indicator.
