  • Publication number: 20200365163
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for spatial audio streaming using adaptive bitrate encoding and decoding in bandwidth limited virtual reality applications. A methodology implementing the techniques according to an embodiment includes calculating weight factors for audio channels associated with each of a plurality of microphones. The weight factors are based on the position and head angle, relative to the microphones, of a user wearing a head mounted display (HMD). The method also includes encoding and decoding the audio channels, for transmission to the HMD, at a selected bitrate, the bitrate based on the weight factor for the audio channel. The method further includes applying an adaptive gain compensation to each of the received and decoded audio channels, the gain compensation also based on the weight factor. The method further includes mixing the resulting gain compensated channels to generate a stereo audio signal to be played through speakers of the HMD.

  • Patent number: 10767279
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method of preparing wear and cut resistant UHMWPE fibers. In the method, a resin material is added into a ball grinder, and the temperature is controlled, and then a mother liquor is added slowly into the ball grinder and mixed uniformly, and the mixed solution is vacuumed in a sealed container for several hours and extruded by a twin screw extruder, a metering pump, and a spin beam, and finally processed with drafting and hot drawing and winding formation. The fiber so manufactured has the features of soft touch and comfortable wearing.

  • Patent number: 10656169
    Abstract: A method of reducing carryover of liquids, such as reagent and/or samples, in analytical or immunoassay testing. The method includes providing an incubation member including a plurality of reaction vessels thereon, pre-assigning certain ones of the reaction vessels in the incubation member for only first test types or certain reagent types for all test lots; and pre-assigning other ones of a second subset of reaction vessels in the incubation member for only second test types for all test lots. By ensuring no mixing of potentially interfering test types or reagent types from test lot to test lot, sample and/or reagent carryover is mitigated. Testing apparatus adapted to carry out the methods are provided, as are other aspects.

  • Patent number: 9601647
    Abstract: The present invention includes upconversion materials such as lanthanide-sensitized oxides that are useful for converting low-energy photons into high-energy photons. Because silicon-based solar cells have an intrinsic optical band-gap of 1.1 eV, low-energy photons having a wavelength longer than 1100 nm, e.g., infrared photons, cannot be absorbed by the solar cell and used for photovoltaic energy conversion. Only those photons that have an energy equal to or greater than the solar cell's band gap, e.g., visible photons, can be absorbed and used for photovoltaic energy conversion. The oxides described herein transform photons having an energy less than the energy of a solar cell's band gap into photons having an energy equal to or greater than the energy of the band gap. When these oxides are incorporated into a solar cell, they provide more photons for photovoltaic energy conversion than otherwise would be available in their absence.

  • Publication number: 20100155698
    Abstract: The present invention relates generally to sub-microelectronic circuitry, and more particularly to nanometer-scale articles, including nanoscale wires which can be selectively doped at various locations and at various levels. In some cases, the articles may be single crystals. The nanoscale wires can be doped, for example, differentially along their length, or radially, and either in terms of identity of dopant, concentration of dopant, or both. This may be used to provide both n-type and p-type conductivity in a single item, or in different items in close proximity to each other, such as in a crossbar array. The fabrication and growth of such articles is described, and the arrangement of such articles to fabricate electronic, optoelectronic, or spintronic devices and components.
