  • Publication number: 20240192294
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems and methods for measuring integrated circuit activity via spatial resolution of optically detected magnetic resonance (ODMR) of nitrogen-vacancies (NV) in diamond. A quantum diamond microscope (QDM) can be used to capture a series of images of the fluorescence of NV centers present in diamond as a function of an external microwave field. An IC device placed adjacent to the diamond of the QDM will impact the fluorescence of the NV center, and this magnetic field-dependent fluorescence can be measured and used to generate a map of the magnetic field of the IC device.

  • Publication number: 20240190457
    Abstract: Vehicles and related systems and methods are provided for controlling a vehicle in an autonomous operating mode. One method involves obtaining navigation information for a route for the vehicle from a navigation system, transforming the navigation information into data points defining an upcoming trajectory of the route, mapping the data points to a corresponding mapped set of lane segments encompassing one or more of the data points, assigning lane preference indicia to the mapped set of lane segments, and autonomously operating one or more actuators onboard the vehicle to laterally maneuver the vehicle into one or more lanes at respective longitudinal positions along the route corresponding to one or more lane segments of the mapped set of lane segments in a manner that is influenced by the lane preference indicia assigned to the lane segments.

  • Patent number: 12004725
    Abstract: A device which illuminates internal tissue and organs of a patient is described. The illumination member includes an array of light-emitting diodes (“LEDs”). The arrangement of the array depends on the configuration of the device and the procedure for which the device is being used. In all cases, the illumination member is used to illuminate relevant organs or structures in the body in order to increase visibility during surgical procedures. The LED array reduces the potential for inadvertent injury to internal structures for procedures located throughout the body. These procedures include those involving the reproductive organs of males and females, gastric and bariatrics, and other structures in the abdomen.
