  • Patent number: 9019363
    Abstract: Stabilization, via active-feedback positional drift-correction, of an optical microscope imaging system in up to 3-dimensions is achieved using the optical measurement path of an image sensor. Nanometer-scale stability of the imaging system is accomplished by correcting for positional drift using fiduciary references sparsely distributed within or in proximity to the experimental sample.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: July 24, 2012
    Date of Patent: April 28, 2015
    Assignee: Mad City Labs, Inc.

  • Patent number: 5457742
    Abstract: A telephone remote control system for direct control of the dialing sequence of a telephone from a personal computer. The remote control system includes an RF transmitter unit mounted on a personal computer and an RF receiver unit within a phone. The transmitter receives dialing commands from a personal computer and transmits those commands to a receiver unit via an RF signal. The receiver unit receives the dialing commands from the transmitter unit and directly controls the dialing sequence of the telephone.

  • Patent number: 5349192
    Abstract: A solid state x-ray detector has a set of bilayers formed on its front surface. Each bilayer includes a spacing layer and an absorbing layer which have different indexes of refraction, and the impinging x-rays strike the bilayers at an angle which satisfies the Bragg condition. As a result, x-rays polarized in one direction are substantially reflected while x-rays polarized in an orthogonal direction pass through the bilayers for detection by the solid state x-ray detector.
