  • Patent number: 9897666
    Abstract: An optomechanical oscillator for measuring a magnetic field may include a fixed substrate, a moveable mass separated from the fixed substrate by a slot, a photonic crystal comprising an optomechanical cavity formed at the slot, and a current source operably coupled to provide current to the photonic crystal. The moveable mass may be moveable responsive to placement of the optomechanical oscillator in a magnetic field based on interaction of the magnetic field and the current. The magnetic field may be measureable based on displacement of the moveable mass.

  • Patent number: 9552494
    Abstract: A protected querying technique involves creating shingles from a query and then fingerprinting the shingles. The documents to be queried are also shingled and then fingerprinted. The overlap between adjacent shingles for the query and the documents to be queried is different, there being less, or no overlap for the document shingles. The query fingerprint is compared to the fingerprints of the documents to be queried to determine whether there are any matches.

  • Patent number: 9480400
    Abstract: An electronic stethoscope includes a housing configured for hand-held manipulation, a transducer supported by the housing and configured to sense auscultation signals at a first location, and a headset coupled to the housing and configured to deliver audio corresponding to the auscultation signals through earpieces on the headset. The electronic stethoscope further includes a processor disposed in the housing and configured to convert the auscultation signals to first digital signals representative of the auscultation signals and to wirelessly transmit the first digital signals from the electronic stethoscope via a secure digital network to a second location such that the audio corresponding to the auscultation signals is provided to headsets of one or more additional electronic stethoscopes at the second location in substantial real time with the sensing of the auscultation sounds at the first location.

  • Patent number: 9459861
    Abstract: Systems and methods of detecting copying of computer code or portions of computer code involve generating unique fingerprints from compiled computer binaries. The unique fingerprints are simplified representations of functions in the compiled computer binaries and are compared with each other to identify similarities between functions in the respective compiled computer binaries. Copying can be detected when there are sufficient similarities between fingerprints of two functions.

  • Patent number: 9232304
    Abstract: An ear tip is adapted to deliver sound to an ear canal. The ear tip includes a first section, a second section and a third section. The first section is connectable to a sound-transmitting device. The second section has a first end, a second end and walls defining a bulbous section. The first end is connected to and in open communication with the first section. The second end is connected to and in open communication with the third section. The third section includes walls defining a flume and an outlet port adapted for open communication with the ear canal. The outlet port has a maximum outer diameter of about 11 millimeters. In a relaxed state, a ratio of a maximum outer diameter of the second section to a maximum diameter of the third section is between about 1.25 and about 2.5.

  • Patent number: 8867026
    Abstract: An method and apparatus for measuring gravitational force are described where at least one first radiation can be provided to at least one optomechanical oscillator, the at least one optomechanical oscillator being structured to deform under the gravitational force to cause a shift in resonance associated with the at least one optomechanical oscillator. In addition, at least one second radiation is received from the at least one optomechanical oscillator, wherein the at least one second radiation is associated with the shift in the resonance, and the shift in the resonance can be determined based on the first and second radiations.
