  • Patent number: 11933899
    Abstract: Through discrimination of the scattered signal polarization state, a lidar system measures a distance through semi-transparent media by the reception of single or multiple scattered signals from a scattering medium. Combined and overlapped single or multiple scattered light signals from the medium can be separated by exploiting varying polarization characteristics. This removes the traditional laser and detector pulse width limitations that determine the system's operational bandwidth, translating relative depth measurements into the conditions of two surface timing measurements and achieving sub-pulse width resolution.

  • Publication number: 20220095948
    Abstract: A bacterial and microorganism detector apparatus and system to provide quick and efficient sampling of a patient, or an attendee at an event, that allows for a canine or other animal to test the breath to determine the existence and presence of any deleterious particles, that may be present therein. The apparatus includes an intake device, in which the party breathes into an air drawing device such as a spirometer, or fan, a reservoir for collecting the sampled breath, a discard valve in the event that excessive breath has been taken in, an overflow valve from the reservoir, which then subjects the final segment of breath to filtration, which the animal can sniff for detection purposes, just before the remaining sample is discharged from the apparatus. The spirometer functions to withdraw air from the lungs of the treated party, for the sampling and testing purposes.
