  • Patent number: 11963462
    Abstract: A memory device has a magnetic tunnel junction (MTJ) element that includes a free layer structure, a free/pinned layer structure, and a tunnel barrier structure between the free layer structure and the free/pinned layer structure. A first electrode is coupled to the free layer structure, and a second electrode is coupled to the free/pinned layer structure. Processing circuitry is operatively coupled to the MTJ element. The processing circuitry is configured to apply a voltage to the MTJ element to modulate magnetic anisotropy using an electric field, to enable writing with reduced write currents; issue a charge current to the MTJ element to induce spin-dependent writing and magnetic spin accumulation in the free layer structure to set a bit state of the MTJ element, using spin-transfer torque into the free layer structure; and remove the voltage from the MTJ element that modulates the magnetic anisotropy, to perform a write operation.

  • Patent number: 11962118
    Abstract: A multilayer mirror comprises a reflector section including a plurality of alternating layers of a high index material and a low index material, and a filter section over the reflector section. The filter section comprises a first filter layer including a low index material on a layer of high index material of the reflector section; a second filter layer on the first filter layer, the second filter layer comprising a high index material that is different than the high index material in the reflector section; and a third filter layer on the second filter layer, the third filter layer comprising a low index material. Each filter layer has an optical thickness greater than or equal to the optical thickness of each layer of the alternating layers. The filter section substantially blocks ultraviolet (UV) energy, thereby preventing UV energy from substantially impinging on the high index material of the reflector section.

  • Publication number: 20240118435
    Abstract: A post-processed GNSS solution from raw GNSS data acquired from a vehicle and optionally other sources is dynamically calculated at the epoch level without using a Kalman filter. Instead, a plurality of GNSS processing methods is applied to each epoch in either the forward or backward direction and the most accurate solution for each epoch of the forward generated solution and backward generated solution is combined. The combined post-processed GNSS solution is determined based on which of the GNSS processing methods were used to generate an epoch of the forward solution and a corresponding epoch of the backward solution.
