  • Patent number: 8222125
    Abstract: Apparatus and method for plasma deposition of thin film photovoltaic materials at microwave frequencies. The apparatus avoids deposition on windows or other microwave transmission elements that couple microwave energy to deposition species. The apparatus includes a microwave applicator with conduits passing therethrough that carry deposition species. The applicator transfers microwave energy to the deposition species to transform them to a reactive state conducive to formation of a thin film material. The conduits physically isolate deposition species that would react to form a thin film material at the point of microwave power transfer. The deposition species are separately energized and swept away from the point of power transfer to prevent thin film deposition. The invention allows for the ultrafast formation of silicon-containing amorphous semiconductors that exhibit high mobility, low porosity, little or no Staebler-Wronski degradation, and low defect concentration.

  • Publication number: 20120179915
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable storage media for authenticating a user logging in to an operating system stored on an encrypted drive. A system configured to practice the method presents a login prompt and receives credentials from a user. The system accesses the operating system on the encrypted drive based on the credentials and starts the operating system. Then the system authenticates the user on the operating system based on the credentials, such as via login forwarding. The system can set up a unified login by receiving a request to encrypt a storage device, and based on received user credentials, generating user data associated with logging in to an operating system on the computing device and user data for encrypting the storage device. The system stores the user data in a manner to enable a unified login boot prompt.

  • Patent number: 8142630
    Abstract: Devices are provided for separating and focusing charged analytes, comprising a separation chamber and two or more electrodes, for example, an electrode array. A membrane separates the separation chamber and the electrodes. The separation chamber of the device is configured, that is, the separation chamber has a shaped geometry, which serves to induce a gradient in an electric field generated by the electrodes in the electrode chamber. Optionally, molecular sieve is included in the separation chamber that is operative to shift the location at which a stationary focused band of a charged analyte forms under a given set of focusing process parameters. Methods are provided for separating and focusing charged analytes comprising introducing a first fluid comprising at least one charged analyte into the separation chamber of a device as just described, applying an electric field gradient to the charged analyte to focus the charged analyte in the electric field gradient.

  • Publication number: 20120040492
    Abstract: Apparatus and method for plasma deposition of thin film photovoltaic materials at microwave frequencies. The apparatus avoids unintended deposition on windows or other microwave transmission elements that couple microwave energy to deposition species. The apparatus includes a microwave applicator with conduits passing therethrough that carry deposition species. The applicator transfers microwave energy to the deposition species to activate or energize them to a reactive state conducive to formation of a thin film material. The conduits physically isolate deposition species that would react or otherwise combine to form a thin film material at the point of microwave power transfer. The deposition species are separately energized and swept away from the point of power transfer to prevent thin film deposition. Suitable deposition species include precursors that contain silicon, germanium, fluorine, and/or hydrogen.

  • Publication number: 20100248413
    Abstract: A method of forming a photovoltaic device on a substrate, especially an opaque substrate. The method includes forming a photovoltaic material on a substrate and removing the substrate. The method may include patterning the photovoltaic material to form a plurality of photovoltaic devices and configuring the devices in series to achieve monolithic integration. The method may include forming additional layers on the substrate, such as one or more of a protective material, a transparent conductor, a back conductor, an adhesive layer, and a laminate support layer. When the substrate is opaque, the method provides the option of ordering the layers so that a transparent conductor is formed before the back reflector of a photovoltaic stack. This ordering of layers facilitates monolithic integration and the ability to remove the substrate allows the earlier-formed transparent conductor to serve as the point of incidence for receiving the light that excites the photovoltaic material.

    Abstract: Fluid processing apparatus comprises a fluid-handling manifold comprising a manifold body having at least a first fluid duct and a second fluid duct. The first and second fluid ducts are in fluid communication with each other at a microfluidic junction of the fluid-handling manifold. The manifold body further comprises a transducer operative to generate ultrasonic acoustic traveling wave radiation into fluid in the microfluidic junction from an active surface toward a non-reflective boundary of the microfluidic junction. The microfluidic junction is operative to pass fluid received from the first and second duct, with micro-mixing effected by the traveling wave radiated into the junction during the fluid flow.

  • Patent number: 7388825
    Abstract: An optical data storage and retrieval system that includes a phase change storage medium and dual energy sources. The phase change material may store information by undergoing a transformation from one structural state to another structural state through application of energy. The system is equipped with two energy sources, neither of which alone provides sufficient energy to effect the transformation. The combination of both energy sources, however, provides sufficient energy to induce the transformation needed to record information. The energy from either source may be optical, thermal, electromagnetic, mechanical or magnetic energy.
