  • Publication number: 20230008120
    Abstract: The invention described herein provides a method and apparatus to realize incorporation of Beryllium followed by activation to realize p-type materials of lower resistivity than is possible with Magnesium. Lower contact resistances and more effective electron confinement results from the higher hole concentrations made possible with this invention. The result is a higher efficiency GaN-based LED with higher current handling capability resulting in a brighter device of the same area.

  • Publication number: 20220375509
    Abstract: Methods, apparatuses, and systems related to managing operations performed in response to refresh management (RFM) commands A controller generates the RFM command for coordinating a refresh management operation targeted for implementation at an apparatus. The apparatus tracks refresh target set that includes refresh management target locations within the apparatus. According to the tracked refresh management target set, the apparatus selectively implements the targeted refresh management operation and/or a response operation in addition to or as a replacement for the targeted refresh management operation.

  • Publication number: 20220355329
    Abstract: An ejector device for ejecting droplets of fluid onto a surface includes an ejector mechanism attached to a fluid reservoir through a fluid loading plate that is configured to pierce the reservoir and channel the fluid to a rear surface of the ejector mechanism by capillary action. The ejector mechanism may have a centro-symmetric configuration with a lead free piezo actuator and may be covered by an auto-closing cover.

  • Patent number: 11013672
    Abstract: Oral care compositions containing a stannous salt and sodium tripolyphosphate are provided where stannous tripolyphosphate ionic intermediates comprise less than about 1% of the compositions. Tetrasodium pyrophosphate, a methylvinyl ether-maleic anhydride copolymer and/or a silica oral polishing agent may be added for further efficacy. In a single phase blend, the oral care composition may be effectively limited to comprise less than about 10% water. In a dual-phase blend, a mixture having the stannous salt in a first phase and the sodium tripolyphosphate in a second phase may be generated from a dual chamber storage tube (with each phase provided from a separate chamber) immediately prior to dental care usage.

  • Patent number: 9271565
    Abstract: Disclosed are compositions suitable for use with an oral care implement. The compositions provide improved sensory appeal, and comparable reduction in volatile sulfur compounds and antibacterial activity to advanced formula toothpaste formulations. The compositions include a high percentage of antibacterial agent and flavoring, when compared to conventional toothpastes, and some mouth washes formulations, such that only minor amounts of the composition can be delivered to the oral care implement to provide improved reduction in volatile sulfur compounds, antibacterial efficacy, and optionally a cooling sensation.
