  • Publication number: 20190295330
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides approaches to facilitating virtual reality and cross-device experiences. In some implementations, an environmental snapshot is captured which includes an image of a virtual reality (VR) environment presented on a VR device and corresponding depth information of the VR environment. The image of the environmental snapshot is presented on a different device than the VR device. A user modification to content associated with the presented image is translated into the environmental snapshot based on the depth information. The environmental snapshot comprising the user modification is translated into the VR environment. The VR environment comprising the translated user modification is presented. The environmental snapshot may correspond to a personal space of a user and may be accessed by another user through a social networking interface or other user networking interface to cause the presentation of the image.

  • Publication number: 20190157040
    Abstract: Systems and methods for plasma processing are disclosed. A method includes applying power to a plasma processing chamber during a first processing step and generating, during the first processing step, a first plasma sheath voltage between a substrate and a plasma. During a second processing step (that follows the first processing step), power is applied to the plasma processing chamber and a different plasma sheath voltage is applied between the substrate and the plasma.

  • Publication number: 20190143212
    Abstract: Example methods and systems for computing a reaction time from an indexed event occurring in an indexed recording to a reaction signal are described. An example method includes receiving a sample of ambient content of a computing device, determining a position identification of the sample of ambient content into an indexed recording to which the sample of ambient content matches, based on the position identification, synchronizing display of content on a user interface of the computing device to the indexed recording, and computing the reaction time. The reaction signal is generated by the computing device and is indicative of a user's response to the indexed event.

  • Patent number: 10269540
    Abstract: An impedance matching system includes an impedance matching network coupled between an alternating current (AC) generator and electrodes of a plasma chamber. The AC generator is configured to generate a multi-level pulse signal of cyclically recurring pulse intervals with differing amplitude levels. A controller or other device identifies each recurring pulse interval, and for each pulse interval, determines an impedance mis-match level between the AC generator and the electrodes, adjusts a configuration of the impedance matching network according to the determined impedance mis-match level, and stores information associated with the adjusted configuration.

  • Patent number: 10147180
    Abstract: An optical system is provided for clinical diagnostics that include methods and apparatus for rapidly detecting and characterizing rare circulating cells such as, but not limited to, circulating tumor cells/circulating stems cells (CTC/CSCs) in a biological sample. The sample is processed for analyses, loaded onto a “capture zone” in the optical system where, and subjected to a two stage optical process for very rapid detection and detailed characterization of detected cells. The detected rare cells are characterized with regards to biomarker profiles using fluorescent tags or chromophores for detection and optical imaging. Isolation of the captured rare cells is anticipated for down-stream assessments including, but not limited to, DNA, RNA, proteomic analyses and culture.
