  • Publication number: 20190207050
    Abstract: A method for forming a photovoltaic device comprising the steps of: providing a first conductive material on a substrate; depositing a continuous layer of a dielectric material less than 10 nm thick on the first conductive material; annealing the first conductive material and the layer of dielectric material; forming a chalcogenide light-absorbing material on the layer of dielectric material; and depositing a second material on the light-absorbing material such that the second material is electrically coupled to the light-absorbing material; wherein the first conductive material and the dielectric material are selected such that, during the step of annealing, a portion of the first conductive material undergoes a chemical reaction to form: a layer of a metal chalcogenide material at the interface between first conductive material and the dielectric material; and a plurality of openings in the layer of dielectric material; the openings being such to allow electrical coupling between the light-absorbing materia

  • Patent number: 10322777
    Abstract: An adjustable surf wake system enhances a wake formed by a watercraft travelling through water. The system may include a flap for deflecting water traveling past the stern of the watercraft, and/or a positioner operably connected to the flap for positioning the flap relative to a longitudinal axis of the watercraft between a neutral position and an outward position. Positioning a port flap in its extended position enhances a starboard surf wake, and positioning the starboard flap in its extended position enhances a port surf wake.

  • Patent number: 10115854
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a method of manufacturing a semiconductor device. Furthermore the present disclosure provides a photovoltaic device and a light emitting diode manufactured in accordance with the method. The method comprises the steps of forming a germanium layer using deposition techniques compatible with high-volume, low-cost manufacturing, such as magnetron sputtering, and exposing the germanium layer to laser light to reduce the amount of defects in the germanium layer. After the method is performed the germanium layer can be used as a virtual germanium substrate for the growth of III-V materials.

  • Patent number: 10037781
    Abstract: A docking assembly serves as an interface between (1) a portable digital media storage and playback (PDMSP) device, and (2) a media reproduction system. A remote controller preferably controls the docking assembly and PDMSP device, which may receive electric charge from the assembly. Media reproduction systems may reproduce audio and video signals in user-perceptible form. Telephonic relay capability is further provided between a telephonic PDMSP playback device and a telephonic remote controller by way of a telephone rebroadcast receiver associated with the docking assembly. Methods for downloading digital media files, and for creating or modifying playlists with a remotely controllable docking assembly adapted to provide a television-compatible video output signal, are further provided.

  • Patent number: 10023268
    Abstract: A moonpool work table able to provide an opening to a moonpool including a first set of opposing table doors having opposing vertical faces and moveable between an open position and one or more closed positions, and a second set of opposing table doors moveable between an open position and one or more closed positions in a transverse direction to that of the first set of table doors. In this way, the first and second set of table doors are able to define a “box” that can more closely and tightly define the area or envelope through which a conduit or the like can pass.

  • Publication number: 20180030603
    Abstract: An electrochemical cell includes a housing having an inlet, an outlet, and a central axis and an anode-cathode pair disposed concentrically within the housing about the central axis and defining an active area between an anode and a cathode of the anode-cathode pair. An active surface area of at least one of the anode and the cathode has a surface area greater than a surface area of an internal surface of the housing. The anode-cathode pair is configured and arranged to direct all fluid passing through the electrochemical cell axially through the active area.

  • Patent number: 9866518
    Abstract: A communication system to facilitate introduction and communication of two of the user's acquaintances, regardless of which contact information the user has on file for each individual. The system improves upon the current existing forms of contact lists and communication which require an individual to introduce people either in person or through one consistent form of media which both acquaintances must have. The application itself is also able to format the messages and covert them so that each individual receives the message in the form that they prefer to be contacted. Likewise, the two individuals can continue to communicate with each other using the introducer's original chain without having to download the application themselves.

  • Patent number: 9824805
    Abstract: A coil unit for an electric vehicle for the inductive transfer of electrical energy between the coil unit and a stationary charging station. The coil unit includes at least one coil and a flux guide unit for guiding a magnetic flux occurring during operation of the coil. Also disclosed is an electric vehicle having a coil unit for the inductive transfer of electrical energy between a secondary coil of the coil unit and a primary coil of a charging station. The disclosed coil solves the problem of allowing the safe use of the inductive electrical energy transfer in electric vehicles, in particular motor vehicles, by proposing a coil unit, in which the flux guide unit has material weakenings, and an electric vehicle having such a coil unit.
