  • Patent number: 10315577
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a side mirror for a vehicle, the side mirror being provided on a vehicle for facilitating the checking of road situations on the left, right, and rear sides. The side mirror for a vehicle comprises a mirror housing which is mounted on the exterior of the vehicle, and a mirror part which is supported by the mirror housing, and is divided into multiple mirror areas which are in aspherical form respectively across the horizontal direction from the internal side, which is close to the vehicle, to the external side, which is far from the vehicle. In the mirror part, the respective optical powers of the mirror areas gradually increase from the internal side to the external side so as to have the same optical power at the borders of the mirror areas, and the optical power rate for at least one of the mirror areas is constant.

  • Publication number: 20190159243
    Abstract: The disclosure provides a method for assisting a UE to implement a UL channel access in a base station of an eLAA-based communication system. The method comprises determining a listen-before-talk (LBT) priority for the UE; and transmitting a first signaling indicating the determined LBT priority to the UE. An enhanced UL channel access mechanism is proposed by the disclosure. In this mechanism, the eNB can provide some assistance to facilitate UL access. Chances of multiple user multiplexing and spectrum efficiency in LAA UL can be improved by this solution.

  • Publication number: 20080159943
    Abstract: A catalyst material for carbon nanotube synthesis includes a uniform dispersion of host particles on a substrate. The host particles themselves include catalyst nanoparticles that are effective to catalyze nanotube syntheses reactions and provide nucleation sites. Methods for preparing catalyst materials include co-sputtering a catalytic species and a host species to form a precursor thin film on a substrate, followed by an oxidation reaction of the precursor thin film in air. The precursor thin film can be patterned on the substrate to limit the locations of the catalyst material to well-defined areas. Methods for nanotube synthesis employ CVD in conjunction with the catalyst materials of the invention. During the synthesis, the catalyst nanoparticles catalyze carbon nanotubes to grown from a carbon-containing gas.

  • Publication number: 20070116957
    Abstract: Thermal pads, including free-standing examples, are provided for dissipating heat from a heat source like a semiconductor die to a heat management aid such as a heat sink. The thermal pads include a sheet of vertically aligned carbon nanotubes and a surface layer. One such surface layer has a thickness of less than 500 microns. Another includes a metal layer having a thickness of less than 500 microns and an intermediate layer attaching the metal layer to the sheet of carbon nanotubes.

  • Publication number: 20070116626
    Abstract: Methods for forming thermal pads including arrays of vertically aligned carbon nanotubes are provided. The thermal pads are formed on various substrates, including foils, thin self-supporting polished metals, semiconductor dies, heat management aids, and lead frames. The arrays are growth from a catalyst layer disposed on the substrate. Forming the array can include leaving the ends of the nanotubes unfinished, attaching a foil thereto, or coating the ends with a metal layer. The metal layer coating can then be polished to a desired smoothness. The array can be filled with a matrix material, only partially filled, or left unfilled. Where the substrate is a foil, the method can be a continuous process where foil is taken from a roll and fed through a series of formation steps. Where the substrate is a lead frame, heating can be generated by applying an current to a pad of the lead frame.

  • Publication number: 20060258054
    Abstract: Methods for producing carbon nanotube thermal pads comprise forming an array of carbon nanotubes on a catalyst layer on a substrate and releasing the array from the substrate. The carbon nanotubes are grown so that they are generally vertically aligned relative to the substrate. Releasing the array can include dissolving the substrate. Alternately, a release layer between the substrate and the catalyst layer can be employed. The release layer can be chemically removed, or can provide a low-strength interface that is easily pulled apart or sheared.

  • Publication number: 20060251897
    Abstract: Methods for joining two objects through the growth of carbon nanotubes from one or both of two opposing surfaces of the two objects, and interfaces formed between the two objects, are provided. Carbon nanotubes grown from both of the opposing surfaces can interdigitate to secure the two objects together. A metal layer can also be placed on one of the opposing surfaces such that carbon nanotubes growing from the other opposing surface bond with the metal layer. In addition to the mechanical bond, the carbon nanotubes can also provide thermal and electrical conductivity between the objects.
