  • Patent number: 8273839
    Abstract: Antiballistic or composite products include high strength polyethylene films or tapes produced in a process including the steps of providing a quantity of disentangled polyethylene, applying a pressure of at least 20 bar to the quantity of disentangled polyethylene and a temperature between the ?-relaxation temperature and the melting temperature of the disentangled polyethylene Tm PE resulting in a block of disentangled polyethylene, skiving a film or tape off the block of disentangled polyethylene and drawing the film or tape in a single or multi stage drawing step at a total draw ratio of at least 1:20.

  • Publication number: 20120204953
    Abstract: A photovoltaic device having at least one active layer and a cover plate that contains on one side an array of optical structures and that is in optical contact with the light receiving surface of the active layer(s) in order to reduce the reflection losses of the surface. The plate or sheet may also be used in combination with luminescent molecules, which are inside or in contact with the plate, to improve the spectral response of the photovoltaic device. The optical relief structures having a base and a single flat apex that are connected by at least three n-polygonal surfaces where n is equal to 5 or higher.

  • Patent number: 6399004
    Abstract: Method for encapsulating a chip (10) on a carrier (12) whereby the chip (10) is positioned on the carrier (12), a dam (16a, 16b) is formed on the carrier (12) around the chip (10), encapsulating material (18) is poured into the space within the dam (16a, 16b), and the obtained encapsulated structure is cured. In a first separate step on the carrier only the dam (16a, 16b) is formed from a thermohardening material at a relatively high temperature and is cured at least partly and in a succeeding second step the space within the dam is filled with the same thermohardening material at a relatively low temperature.
