  • Patent number: 6120720
    Abstract: This method involves the injection molding of a polymeric/copolymeric frame about a peripheral edge of glass panel in association with a pair of brackets to form a refrigerator shelf. The glass panel is placed in a cavity of a mold with a peripheral edge of the cavity corresponding to a peripheral edge of the glass panel. The cavity has side cavity portions each housing one of the shelf brackets. Polymeric/copolymeric synthetic plastic material is injected into the cavity preferably adjacent corners thereof such that the forces of the injected material are essentially self-balancing about the peripheral edge of the glass panel, thereby maintaining the glass panel in substantially mating conformity with the cavity to produce a relatively consistently contoured and cross-sectioned frame which, upon the solidification of the plastic material, also unites the shelf brackets to the glass panel.

  • Patent number: 5830552
    Abstract: A table or cover plate comprises a core plate, e.g. of a wooden material, with an optionally coated top surface and an all-round edge protection formed by a plastics section, which covers the cut faces of the core plate and engages over its top and underside. The edge protection comprises two angle sections injection moulded as a closed profile, whereof an outer frame covers with a long leg the cut faces and projects over the underside of the core plate and with its other leg engages over the top coating, whereas the other, inner frame with its one leg engages on the inside of the long leg of the outer frame on its area projecting over the underside and with its other leg engages on the underside of the core plate and that the frames are interconnected at their engaging legs.

  • Patent number: 5713169
    Abstract: A conical anchoring system to anchor one or more loaded, stressed or pre-stressed tension elements (9) comprising a conical anchoring casing and an anchor body (7) fitting into the casing and retaining the tension element(s). The boundary surface between the anchor body and the casing wall is substantially designed to allow free sliding. To prevent the tension elements from being torn out of the anchor body or rupturing the anchor body itself, the rigidity of the gradient material forming the anchor body increases from the site of entry of the tension element at the cone, that is from the front zone, to the rear part of the anchor cone. Substantially improved shear distribution along the surface of the tension element(s) is achieved thereby over the case of substantially uniform rigidity of the anchor body.

  • Patent number: 5331655
    Abstract: Laser diode with independent electronic and optical confinement, referred to as decoupled confinement, comprising an active region, i.e. an active layer, a single quantum well layer or a multi-quantum well layer, embedded in a carrier confinement structure providing for an energy barrier at least on one side of the active region. This energy barrier reduces carrier leakage out of the active region. The carrier confinement structure is embedded in an optical confinement structure which guides the optical light wave. The inventive laser diode is characterized in that the height of the energy barrier confining the carriers, and the refractive index step providing for optical waveguiding of the light wave are decoupled.

  • Patent number: 5280535
    Abstract: A semiconductor laser diode comprises a waveguide formed by an active layer sandwiched in between upper and lower cladding layers, wherein the cladding layers comprise a material having a bandgap that differs from that of the active layer. The waveguide is deposited on a structured substrate having a surface pattern that causes the waveguide to be bent near its ends, i.e., near cleaved or etched facets of the completed laser device thereby providing a non-absorbing mirror (NAM) window structure. A laser beam, generated in the center, planar waveguide section, leaves the waveguide at the bend, continuing substantially unabsorbed and undeflected through the wider bandgap cladding layer material towards the mirror facet. An amphoteric dopant, used during growth of the layered waveguide structure, causes a reversal of the conductivity-type within the semiconductor material deposited above inclined surface regions.
