  • Publication number: 20200109084
    Abstract: A method of forming an optical device in a body (32), comprises performing a plurality of laser scans (34,36) to form the optical device, each scan comprising relative movement of a laser beam and the body thereby to scan the laser beam along a respective path (34a, 34b 34f; 36a, 36b 36f) through the body to alter the refractive index of material of that path, wherein the paths are arranged to provide in combination a route for propagation of light through the optical device in operation that is larger in a direction substantially perpendicular to the route for propagation of light than any one of the paths individually.

  • Patent number: 10512025
    Abstract: A device sets an activity mode for a cellular connection. A method to set the activity mode is performed at a device located with a user that is configured to establish a network connection to a network. The method includes determining a status of the user, the status indicating an activity state or a non-activity state of the user. The method includes, when the status indicates the activity state, activating an activity mode on the device that restricts select types of mobile originating data traffic.

  • Publication number: 20180373774
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods and systems to provide coordinated identification of data items across a plurality of distributed data storage repositories (datastores). In one disclosed embodiment, a single configuration management database (CMDB) controls identification rights for all CIs as they are first identified in a master/slave relationship with all other CMDBs in the distributed environment. In a second embodiment, a plurality of CMDBs divide identification rights based upon coordination identification rules where certain CMDBs are assigned authoritative identification rights for CIs matching the rules of a particular CMDB in the distributed environment. In a third embodiment, one or more of the plurality of CMDBs may also have advisory identification rights for CIs which do not already have an identifiable unique identity and can coordinate with an authoritative CMDB to establish an identity for CIs.

  • Publication number: 20170257424
    Abstract: In a general aspect, a computer-implemented method can include receiving a request to provision a plurality of containers of an application across a plurality of data center hosts and iteratively placing the plurality of containers on the plurality of data center hosts. The containers can be selected for placement based on one of a locality constraint and an association with previously-placed containers. Placement of a selected container can be based on, at least, compute requirements of the selected container, network requirements of the selected container, configuration of the plurality of data center hosts, and performance metrics for the plurality of data center hosts.

  • Patent number: 8634630
    Abstract: Method and apparatus for enhancing representations of micro-calcifications in a digital mammogram image. The method includes smoothing the digital mammogram image using a fuzzy smoothing technique to yield a fuzzy smoothed image. The method includes subtracting the fuzzy smoothed image from the digital mammogram image to yield a micro-calcifications enhanced image. The method includes scaling gray level values of pixels in the micro-calcifications enhanced image by a predetermined amount to provide a digital mammogram image with enhanced representations of the micro-calcifications. Apparatus for enhancing representations of micro-calcifications includes an image processing unit that uses an image acquisition unit to receive an image and a digital signal processor to process the image to provide a digital mammogram image with enhanced representations of micro-calcifications.
