  • Patent number: 9312954
    Abstract: A light communication system, a transmitter and a receiver are provided. The light communication system includes the transmitter and the receiver. The transmitter has a first processing unit and a light-emitting element. The first processing unit produces a transmission signal. The light-emitting element produces light to carry the transmission signal. The receiver has a first variable lens, a photosensitive element and a second processing unit. The first variable lens changes the propagation path of the light. The photosensitive element senses the light passed through the first variable lens to produce a receiving signal. The second processing unit controls the first variable lens based on the signal quality of the receiving signal to change the equivalent channel between the transmission signal and the receiving signal. Therefore, the transmission capability of the light communication system is enhanced.

  • Publication number: 20130107545
    Abstract: A bulb cap is mounted on a base and includes an elastic translucent cap and a gas injecting device. The elastic translucent cap has an initial geometric shape and a thickness-distribution structure. The gas injecting device is coupled to the elastic translucent cap. After the elastic translucent cap is mounted at the base, gas with a gas-pressure can be injected by using the gas injecting device so that the elastic translucent cap is expanded to a geometric shape structure corresponding to the gas-pressure to change a light pattern of the base, and meanwhile the geometric shape structure is varied with the gas-pressure. In addition, the elastic translucent cap can be replaced by a bulb cap with a fixed geometric shape.

  • Publication number: 20080084709
    Abstract: A light guide plate, for use with a back-light module for seasonal scanning in dividing zones, includes a light-pervious substrate having a plurality of dividing blocks formed thereon, an optical grating structure disposed on light incident surface of each of the dividing blocks for allowing light to enter, and a light diffusion structure disposed on an optical surface of each of the dividing blocks for diffusing the light. As the light-pervious substrate is adapted for seasonal scanning in different zones, the provision of the optical grating structure can shorten the light mixing distance while the light diffusion structure can evenly emit and spread the light throughout the light guide plate to solve the drawbacks of the prior techniques. Further, a back-light module having the light guide plate is provided.

  • Patent number: 6043492
    Abstract: A non-invasive blood glucose meter includes a near-infrared energy analyzer which includes a light filter assembly of two Fabry-Perot interferometers and a photosensor. The near-infrared energy analyzer detects near-infrared energy absorbed by a human or animal body and generates spectra of such absorption so that the blood glucose content in the body may be analyzed. In order to provide stable energy absorption information of the blood, special designs are provided to stabilize the light source, to calibrate the spectrum and to obviate the noise from the heartbeats of the body. A single crystal silicon elastic power source is used to provide the driving power of the Fabry-Perot interferometer to avoid mechanical hysteresis.
