  • Publication number: 20190148903
    Abstract: In a planar waveguide laser device (1), a substrate (6) is joined to the upper surface of a waveguide (2). A recess (6a) having a chamfered shape is formed along an edge of an end facet of the substrate (6) on the side of the waveguide (2), the end facet being perpendicular to the direction of laser oscillation. An end facet of the waveguide (2) perpendicular to the oscillation direction of laser light is covered with a coating (7). A wraparound portion (7a) continuing from the coating (7) covers the upper surface of the waveguide (2) facing the recess (6a) of the substrate (6).

  • Patent number: 10045344
    Abstract: In a wireless communication system which can share the same frequency band with time division duplexing (TDD) and frequency division duplexing (FDD), a wireless terminal carries out an FDD downlink reception in a second frequency band overlapping a first frequency band allocated to TDD, thus carrying out reception at the TDD downlink reception timing. Alternatively, a wireless terminal carries out a TDD downlink reception in a second frequency band overlapping a first frequency band allocated to FDD, thus carrying out reception at the FDD downlink reception timing.
