  • Publication number: 20170283306
    Abstract: Glass composite coating systems herein may be used for industrial applications serving as a chemical barrier against substrate oxidation or other deterioration by corrosive agents, may prevent material build-up in process piping and equipment, may provide for improved bonding strength between concrete and reinforcing media, and may inhibit microbial build-up on exposed surfaces. Traditionally, glass coatings are emplaced on relatively pristine, pre-prepared surfaces. Glass composite coating systems described herein may be bonded to untreated substrates, without the need to clean, polish and/or pre-treat the substrate.

  • Patent number: 8493953
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for mitigating multi-user interference in reception of a code division multiple access (CDMA) signal is described. The CDMA signal has a plurality of spread user symbol streams, each spread by a corresponding one of a plurality of spreading codes. Estimated symbols are iteratively improved by forming a reconstructed signal from the estimated symbols, subtracting the reconstructed signal from the CDMA signal to create a difference signal, and adjusting the estimated symbols based on a combination of the difference signal and the estimated symbols.

  • Publication number: 20120147942
    Abstract: A system and method for signaling and detecting in wireless communications systems are provided. A method for processing information includes operating in a first phase, and operating in a second phase in response to determining that a first user is transmitting at a substantially higher power level than a second user, and processing the detected information. The first phase includes iteratively inverting a first filtering operation on received signals, and the second phase includes iteratively inverting a second filtering operation on received signals with consideration given to a first estimation error of symbols of the first user and a second estimation error of symbols of the second user. The operating remains in the first phase in response to determining that the first user is not transmitting at a substantially higher power level than the second user.
