  • Publication number: 20240167426
    Abstract: A system includes a first sensor positioned to sense presence of a contrail in a first volume, wherein the first volume at least partially overlaps an expected volume of a contrail proximate an aircraft. A second sensor is positioned to sense a background reference in a second volume, where the second volume does not overlap the expected volume of a contrail proximate an aircraft. A controller is operatively connected to the first and second sensors. The controller includes machine readable instructions configured to cause the controller to utilize data input from both the first and second volumes to determine if a contrail is present from the aircraft. A system includes machine readable instructions configured to cause the controller to predict persistence of contrails on an intended route through the volume of airspace and to determine an improved route and/or propulsion operation to reduce contrail formation and persistence relative to the intended route.

  • Patent number: 11973139
    Abstract: An improved laterally diffused MOSFET (LDMOS) device enables an ability to tune some device parameters independently of other device parameters and/or provides a device architecture with component dimensions that significantly improve device performance. The LDMOS device includes a stepped gate having a first portion with a thin gate insulator over a body region and a second portion with a thick gate insulator over part of a drift region. In some embodiments, a gate shield is disposed over another part of the drift region to reduce a gate-drain capacitance of the LDMOS device. In some embodiments, the LDMOS device has a specific resistance (Rsp) of about 5-8 mOhm*mm2, a gate charge (Qg) of about 1.9-2.0 nC/mm2, and an Rsp*Qg product figure of merit of about 10-15 mOhm*nC.

  • Patent number: 11948302
    Abstract: An in-line holographic microscope can be used to analyze a video stream to track individual colloidal particles' three-dimensional motions. The system and method can provide real time nanometer resolution, and simultaneously measure particle sizes and refractive indexes. An assay using the holographic microscope for holographic particle characterization directly detect viruses, antibodies and related targets binding to the surfaces of specifically functionalized micrometer-scale colloidal probe beads. The system detects binding of targets by directly measuring associated changes in the bead's diameter without the need for downstream labeling and analysis.

  • Publication number: 20240069286
    Abstract: A dual-layer coupling arrangement comprises a first coupling waveguide disposed within a photonic integrated circuit (at a position over an included optical signal waveguide) and a second coupling waveguide disposed above the first coupling waveguide. The first and second coupling waveguides are formed to exhibit splitter configurations that terminate as a pair arms separated by a distance suitable for creating beams that would coincide with a circular mode field of the core region of a coupling optical fiber. The vertical spacing between the first and second coupling waveguides is set so that the pairs of beams exiting from the terminating arms of the coupling waveguides coincide with a circular mode field.
