  • Patent number: 11307113
    Abstract: A method is used for determining a status of an encapsulation and/or a passivation layer of the encapsulation. The encapsulation forms a multi-layer system from multiple passivation layers arranged on top of one another and electrically contacted intermediate layers arranged between the passivation layers. The multi-layer system protects an implant surrounded by the encapsulation. In the method, an electrical measurement is carried out between a reference potential and at least one electrically contacted intermediate layer, and at least one current flowing between the reference potential and the at least one electrically contacted intermediate layer is detected. The at least one detected current is compared with at least one pre-determined threshold value. If the detected current falls below or exceeds the at least one threshold value, this indicates a functional state of a passivation layer adjacent to the at least one electrically contacted intermediate layer.

  • Patent number: 11269105
    Abstract: This disclosure presents methods and systems to perform fairway analysis on a computing system to automate tasks. The automation of the fairway analysis can reduce bias and uncertainty introduced by a user using their own set of assumptions, estimations, and preferred sequencing of rules and algorithms. The described processes can receive initial input parameters describing the area of interest (AOI) and a geological age range. The processes can retrieve appropriate geological and stratigraphic parameters using the initial input parameters. The combined input parameters can then be geoprocessed using age-aware rules and a determined sequence of algorithms and rules to generate synthesized geological data that can be upscaled and transformed into one or more chance maps indicating the presence and effectiveness of various hydrocarbon elements. The chance maps can be amalgamated and processed to produce a prospective map indicating the likelihood of success of further exploration of the specified AOI.

  • Patent number: 11099279
    Abstract: A detector signal is corrected by superimposing the detector signal with a correction signal. For providing a valid correction signal, a sampling pulse is periodically or randomly provided. The sampling pulse serves as the initiator for sampling a process signal. During the sampling, the process signal is observed. In case a pulse at the process signal is detected, the sampling is assumed as not being suitable to correct the detector signal, since the pulse affects the process signal. Otherwise, the process signal is further observed during a validation period to validate whether the sampled process value of the process signal has already been influenced by an upcoming pulse at the process signal. In case the sampling is assumed as valid, the sampled process value is used as a basis for providing the correction signal.
