  • Patent number: 10520383
    Abstract: A differential pressure transmitter configured to provide an absolute pressure measurement is presented. The differential pressure sensor comprises a first process fluid inlet. The differential pressure sensor also comprises a second process fluid inlet. The differential pressure sensor also comprises a differential pressure sensor operably coupled to the first and second process fluid inlets. The differential pressure sensor also comprises an absolute pressure cap coupled to the second pressure inlet. The cap comprises a volume of gas within an expansion feature. The volume of gas has a reference pressure. The expansion feature is configured to allow for expansion of the volume of gas in response to a temperature increase, such that the volume of gas maintains the reference pressure.

  • Publication number: 20190393681
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention describe polarization insensitive optical devices utilizing polarization sensitive components. Light comprising at least one polarization state is received, and embodiments of the invention select a first optical path for light comprising a first polarization state or a second optical path for light comprising a second polarization state orthogonal to the first polarization state. The optical paths include components to at least amplify and/or modulate light comprising the first polarization state; the second optical path includes a polarization rotator to rotate light comprising the second polarization state to the first polarization state.
    Type: Application
