  • Publication number: 20210070616
    Abstract: The present invention is a surface-modified carbon material including chemical addends added to the surface of graphene, such that a one-dimensional periodicity corresponding to a large number of addition positions of the chemical addends can be observed in a Fourier-transformed image of a scanning probe microscopic image of the surface of graphene. The surface-modified carbon material of the present invention has a bandgap and therefore can be used as a sensor capable of electronically controlling an operation or another electronic device.

  • Patent number: 8125718
    Abstract: A telescope that provides for simultaneous clear viewing of objects or areas at various distances may be either Galilean or astronomical. The telescope may be mounted on or into any mechanism or device used for targeting or aiming. Such devices may include iron sights of small arms weapons, and cameras and telescopes, which may be either electrically or manually focused. These miniature scopes are engineered to maximize the clear depth-of-field viewing by the eye regardless of vision irregularities, such as Presbyopia, Myopia, Hyperopic, Astigmatism, or combinations of these, in conjunction with or without spectacle lens corrections. This aiming scope/device may be placed on a pair of spectacles in a very close proximity to the eye cornea. Other maximized scope image characteristics that occur are field-of-view, luminosity, and unmagnified and unbroken or distorted viewing field.

  • Patent number: 7949918
    Abstract: An adaptation of standard boundary cell architecture defined by the IEEE 1149.1 Joint Test Action Group (JTAG) interface standard to provide paths to functional circuitry via the re-use of JTAG standard test data registers (TDR) and interface. Existing multi-core processor solutions are covered, but an expansion for a more generic solution is provided. In general, an integrated circuit is provided with a plurality of function registers along with a plurality of I/O units. The I/O units are arranged in a serial communications chain located around the boundary of the integrated circuit's functional circuitry. Each of the I/O units include JTAG standard serial TDR in serial communication with adjacent I/O units. Moreover, each I/O unit includes JTAG standard parallel TDR that is associated with and in parallel communication with the I/O unit's JTAG standard serial TDR.

  • Patent number: 7911710
    Abstract: Miniature telescopes of both Galilean and astronomical design are fashioned to allow bi-level viewing, simultaneously, of both magnified scope images and non magnified normal images of both far and near objects or areas. Improvements in bi-leveling telescopes involve: objective lens aspherics, ocular lens materials of high refractive indices, anti-reflective fabric like materials for internal light control. This combination of innovations results in a bi-levelable miniature telemicroscope displaying wider magnified fields which display brighter and clearer imagery. Peripheral chromatic and spherical aberrations are considerably reduced even in shorter length telescope units. These shorter length scopes are spectacle mounted in such a way that the front surface of a spectacle carrier lens is coplanar with the telescope objective lens. Tintings and other coatings can now be applied to any of the scope's lenses or internal disks as well as to spectacle carrier lenses.

  • Patent number: 5189560
    Abstract: Telescopes, both Galilean and astronomical, are mounted to small arms such as rifles, shotguns, pistols and bows. These telescopes are miniature in size mounted into the aiming mechanism of the small arm. The telescope imagery is engineered to produce simultaneous viewing of target and sight. Objects, including a barrel end post, at varying distances from the scope are all observed clearly, sharply and simultaneously on the image or exit pupil of the scope. This imagery may be enhanced with the use of glare control structures. Galilean scopes are herein described as being used with a reticle structure on the scope eyepiece or on, or beyond, the objective lens for calibrating/aiming guns and bows. The reticle figures are most accurately employed at eye relief distances of from near point (approximately 25 cm) to arms length (approximately 56 cm).

  • Patent number: 5121251
    Abstract: A telemicroscope has a light absorbing and blocking annular baffle within the telemicroscope barrel. The baffle is positioned between the front and rear lenses and reduces glare in the telemicroscope by blocking and absorbing light which would ordinarily reflect off the inner surfaces of the telemicroscope barrel. The baffle has a knife-edge inner diameter and its surfaces are given a dull finish to enhance its light absorbing properties.
