  • Patent number: 10562130
    Abstract: A crystalline material processing method includes forming subsurface laser damage at a first average depth position to form cracks in the substrate interior propagating outward from at least one subsurface laser damage pattern, followed by imaging the substrate top surface, analyzing the image to identify a condition indicative of presence of uncracked regions within the substrate, and taking one or more actions responsive to the analyzing. One potential action includes changing an instruction set for producing subsequent laser damage formation (at second or subsequent average depth positions), without necessarily forming additional damage at the first depth position. Another potential action includes forming additional subsurface laser damage at the first depth position.

  • Patent number: 10186644
    Abstract: Described herein are LED chips incorporating self-aligned floating mirror layers that can be configured with contact vias. These mirror layers can be utilized to reduce dim areas seen around the contact vias due to underlying material layers without the need for the mirror layer to be designed at some tolerance distance from the electrical via. This increases mirror area, eliminating lower light reflection in the proximity of the via and producing higher light output with greater light emission uniformity. In some embodiments, the mirror layer is formed with a contact via. This allows for a self-aligning process and results in the mirror layer extending substantially from the edge of the via.

  • Publication number: 20180337844
    Abstract: A method for verifying video statistics of a content hosting platform includes enrolling, by a measurement service, a client device as a panel client device to provide panel reports independent of the content hosting platform, and sending a panel sniffer module to the panel client device. The panel sniffer module to cause the panel client device to send panel reports to the measurement service, and the panel reports include first video statistics of playback of a video by a player executing on the panel client device. The method also includes receiving a panel report from the panel client device and receiving a measurement report from the content hosting platform. The measurement report is generated by the content hosting platform and includes second video statistics of the playback. The method also includes verifying accuracy of the second video statistics by comparing the first video statistics to the second video statistics.

  • Patent number: 10038613
    Abstract: A census server provides measurement reports describing clients accessing a specified network-based service to a measurement agency via a network. The census server receives census events from clients used by users via the network. The census events describe usage of a network-based service by the clients. The census server processes the census events to produce measurement reports describing the usage of the network-based service. The processing includes filtering specified information out of the census events to prevent the measurement reports from identifying the users of the clients. The measurement agency may use the measurement reports, for example, to describe how the clients tend to access and use the service.
