  • Patent number: 4395088
    Abstract: A color selective filter in the form of a holographic reflector is produced by a method which includes the step of exposing a photosensitive film of gelatine to a monochromatic laser beam. In order to obtain acceptably short exposure times and to enable substantially the whole of the available laser light to be utilized, a relatively narrow laser beam is sequentially scanned across the surface area of the gelatine film in a scanning pattern which consists of a large number of parallel straight lines. The diameter of the laser beam spot is very large as compared with the spacing between adjacent line scans. In this way each point on the gelatine film is scanned a very large number of times.The laser beam 8 is generated by a laser 7 and deflected by two movable mirrors 10 and 11, which are controlled so that the beam scans the whole of the gelatine film 1.

  • Patent number: 4395051
    Abstract: A quick-change holder for a machine tool wherein a nut holding a tool can be attached and detached by a single action. In the quick-change holder of the type, in which the nut charged with the tool can be attached to and detached from a holder body by the radial movements of a plurality of balls which are so loosely fitted in a plurality of radial through-holes formed in the holder body as to be made movable in the radial direction, according to the present invention, the aforementioned holder body is formed with an outwardly diverging conical inner circumference in which a spring having free wire ends with a gap therebetween so as to be compressible radially inwardly is fitted under radially inward compression in an inscribed relationship therewith, and the aforementioned spring is brought into abutment engagement with the balls, when the nut is not inserted, thereby to push the balls outwardly in the radial direction.

  • Patent number: 4395693
    Abstract: The invention relates to an electrical winding for a transformer, a choke coil or the like, particularly for high frequencies, wherein the conductor forming the winding is radially subdivided into n subconductors and within the winding the subconductors are twisted in such a manner that the initially innermost subconductor, after twisting comes to lie outermost, the subconductor in the second innermost position, after twisting comes to lie at the second outermost position, etc. If the subconductors are designed as conductor tapes, the subconductors 1 through (n-1) comprise two partially overlapping tape sections which in the overlap region are conductively connected together at the side edges of the tape, the n.sup.th conductor tape being made of one piece and forming one of the outwardly disposed subconductors of the conductor.

  • Patent number: 4393515
    Abstract: A processor arrangement consists of a number of individual autonomous processor units which communicate with each other by means of electro-magnetic waves. The electro-magnetic energy is typically at infra-red optical frequencies. Although the energy necessary to operate the individual processor units can be supplied by means of conductive bus bars, in a preferred arrangement the energy is supplied from a light source at optical frequencies to photo cells mounted on each of the processor units. Each processor arrangement is provided with an input-output device which communicates with the individual processor units by means of electro-magnetic waves and is provided with external conductive leads in a conventional manner. The whole processor arrangement is encapsulated in an evacuated chamber.

  • Patent number: 4393290
    Abstract: A puffer-type gas blast circuit interrupter composed of two separable contacts defining a power current path and between which an arc is created upon separation movement, in which the movable parts of the gas compressor and/or the region of contact between the contacts of an associated nominal current path are shielded from the region in which the arc is created by a shielding arrangement composed of a stationary cylinder surrounding the nozzle associated with the gas compressor and a shield member carried by the nozzle. Additionally, to reduce the movable mass of the interrupter, at least one of the current paths is constituted by two stationary contact pieces and a movable contact member carried by, and projecting from, the cylinder of the gas compressor. Further, the mass of the moving parts of the system is reduced by providing the shield member carried by the nozzle with a cylindrical projection coaxial with, and slidable relative to, the stationary cylindrical member.
