  • Patent number: 10467589
    Abstract: Systems and methods for profiled and focused searching of litigation information allow a user to access specific legal information for use during litigation. The user can connect to a web site and access particular information from multiple sources based on the litigation task the user wishes to accomplish One litigation task is to create a litigation profile for a target, such as a particular litigant, attorney, judge, court, or firm. In this way, the user can perform focused and task-based searching to receive information about particular filings in particular locations, made by particular entities without knowing which sources contain certain pieces of the litigation information. For example, the user can receive all documents relating to summary judgment for patent infringement filed by a particular attorney in a particular court without specifying the source of information. In one aspect, the user can also access the source(s) upon receiving the results.

  • Patent number: 8617707
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are magic size nanoclusters comprising lead and one or more chalcogens. The disclosed magic size nanoclusters have both spectrally narrow fluorescence and ultra-high quantum efficiencies. Further disclosed herein is a method for preparing PbS, PbSe, and PbTe magic size nanoclusters. The yield of magic size nanoclusters can be increased by using anion sources enriched for secondary phosphines. The use of enriched secondary phosphine anion sources also increases the yield of quantum nanostructures.

  • Patent number: 6972245
    Abstract: One embodiment of the present invention provides a system for co-fabricating strained and relaxed crystalline, poly-crystalline, and amorphous structures in an integrated circuit device using common fabrication steps. The system operates by first receiving a substrate. The system then fabricates multiple layers on this substrate. A layer within these multiple layers includes both strained structures and relaxed structures. These strained structures and relaxed structures are fabricated simultaneously using common fabrication steps.

  • Patent number: RE42551
    Abstract: A flash memory device including a first memory array, a control circuit coupled to the first memory array, and a second independent memory array coupled to the control circuit. The first memory array includes a plurality of memory blocks each having a memory cell. The memory cell may be a nonvolatile flash memory cell. The control circuit controls the programming, erasing, and reading of the memory cells. The second memory array includes a plurality of block lock-bits each corresponding to one of the plurality of memory blocks. The state of each block lock-bit indicates whether the memory cell in the corresponding memory block is locked. The second memory array may also include a master lock-bit that indicates whether the block lock-bits are locked.
