  • Publication number: 20240084401
    Abstract: Provided herein, in certain embodiments, are various methods, reagents, and devices for detection of multiple target nucleic acids in a sample, or multiple segments of a target nucleic acid in a sample, using a programmable nuclease. In certain embodiments, the present disclosure provides compositions of pools of guide nucleic acids, programmable nucleases, and detector nucleic acids and methods of using said compositions for detection of different segments of one target nucleic acid or different target nucleic acids in a sample.

  • Publication number: 20150070607
    Abstract: A three-dimensional display apparatus includes a display device capable of displaying an image, and a liquid crystal lens disposed so as to overlap the display device. The liquid crystal lens includes an insulating substrate, a first electrode formed extending in a first direction, a second electrode formed substantially parallel to the first electrode, a high resistance portion electrically connecting the first electrode and the second electrode, an opposing substrate, a common electrode, a liquid crystal layer, and a controller. The sheet resistance of the high resistance portion is in 100 G?/sq or less. The controller controls, in one of the modes, the first electrode and the second electrode to be at different potentials.

  • Publication number: 20100156774
    Abstract: A method and apparatus is provided for reducing colour shift in relation to viewing angle in an LCD. The method includes receiving a plurality of pixel data constituting an image, each pixel data including a plurality of sub-pixel colour components having respective data values; for each of the pixel data, comparing the sub-pixel colour component data values included therein; and based on the comparison, modifying the sub-pixel colour component data values included in the pixel data to reduce colour shift when displayed on the LCD.

  • Publication number: 20070040780
    Abstract: A display device is provided that comprises a liquid crystal display panel for displaying an image by spatial light modulation, and circuitry for switching liquid crystal in the panel between having a first configuration in a first mode to cause an image displayed using the panel to be discernible from a wide range of viewing angles, and having a second configuration in a second mode to cause an image displayed using the panel to be discernible substantially only from within a narrow range of viewing angles. Several types of display panel to achieve such in-panel switching between public and private viewing modes are disclosed.
