  • Publication number: 20180283650
    Abstract: A system for re-distributing light emitted from a light source using an optical element is described. The optical element is manufactured using a bulk matrix material, and diffusing particles and/or scattering particles are embedded within the bulk material. The optical element is coupled to the light source to capture emitted light and redistribute the light in a desired angular distribution pattern depending on the ratio of total weight of diffusing particles to total weight of scattering particles.

  • Patent number: 7465764
    Abstract: A sizing composition containing an epoxy resin emulsion, one or more coupling agents, a cationic lubricant, and an acid. The epoxy resin emulsion includes a low molecular weight epoxy and one or more surfactants. The epoxy resin has an epoxy equivalent weight of from 175-225, preferably from 175-190. Optionally, the sizing composition may also contain a non-ionic lubricant, a polyurethane film former, and/or an antistatic agent. The sizing composition may be used to size glass fibers used in filament winding applications to form reinforced composite articles with improved mechanical properties, wet tensile properties, improved resistance to cracking, and improved processing characteristics.

  • Patent number: 6313362
    Abstract: Akylation product is contacted with a purification medium in a liquid phase pre-reaction step to remove impurities and form a purified stream. The purified stream may then be further processed by liquid phase transalkylation to convert the polyalkylated aromatic compound to a monoalkylated aromatic compound. The process may use a large pore molecular sieve catalyst such as MCM-22 as the purification medium in the pre-reaction step because of its high reactivity for alkylation, strong retention of catalyst poisons and low reactivity for oligomerization under the pre-reactor conditions. Olefins, diolefins, styrene, oxygenated organic compounds, sulfur containing compounds, nitrogen containing compounds and oligomeric compounds are removed.

  • Patent number: 6191539
    Abstract: A fluorescent lamp (10) includes a tube (12) and a fluorescent gas mixture sealed in the tube. A phosphor layer (20) is deposited on the interior surface of the tube. A pair of internal electrodes (14), connected by a first circuit (16) to a first power supply (18), are located in the tube at opposite ends thereof. The first power supply (18) causes a high-intensity arc discharge between the pair of internal electrodes (14) and, in turn, produces fluorescent light. An opposing pair of conductive traces (22, 24) connected by a second circuit (26) to a second power supply (28), are silk-screened onto the exterior surface of the lamp tube (12) along the length thereof. The second power supply (28) causes the opposing pair of conductive traces (22, 24) to produce a transverse electric field that creates a low-intensity transverse discharge. The low-intensity transverse discharge is used to lower the luminance range of the fluorescent lamp.

  • Patent number: 6182969
    Abstract: A blackjack wagering game in which an order card is dealt to determine the order of play. If the order card is a predetermined card, the dealer's hand is played before each player's hand, thereby giving an advantage to the players. In the preferred embodiment, the order card is a card that is dealt face up in the dealer's hand and the predetermined card is the ace of spades. A side wager is also disclosed in which a deck of cards used in the game has a plurality of card types. The card types are given a relative ranking. A side wager card is dealt during the game. If the side wager card is between two cards in a player's hand, then the player will win the side wager. In the preferred embodiment, the side wager card is the same card as the order card.

  • Patent number: 5538252
    Abstract: A Twenty-One game is modified by adding one or more Jokers to a standard deck of fifty-two playing cards. In one version, each Joker dealt as one of the first two cards is counted as a variable number so that the resulting first two cards are then valued at a numerical count of an ordinary twenty-one. In this version, any Jokers appearing after the first two cards have a numerical value of one. In a second version, if either the player or the dealer's first two cards are a Joker-Joker combination or a Joker-Ace combination, the hand automatically becomes a Blackjack. In any other first two card combinations, the Joker is a non-playable card and must be replaced with a playable card. After the player and the dealer each have two playable cards, their respective hands are then played out. If, during the play of the hands and before the player and the dealer either stand or bust, a Joker is dealt, the Joker has a numerical value of one.

  • Patent number: 4878722
    Abstract: A switch mechanism (11) comprising a red LED light source (13), a filter assembly (15) and a photodetector assembly (17) is disclosed. The photodetector assembly (17) includes two filtered photodetectors (33 and 35) that are aligned with the light source (13) either directly or via a light canal (19). The filtered photodetectors (33 and 35) are designed to detect light in different narrow wavelength bands lying within the band of energy produced by the light source (13). The filter assembly (15) includes a two-position movable element (23) located between the light source (13) and the photodetector assembly (17). The movable element (23) includes two sections (25 and 27) having different light-passing abilities. In one of the movable element positions one section (25) is located between the light source and both filtered photodetectors and in the other movable element position the other section (27) is located therebetween.

  • Patent number: 4317568
    Abstract: A golf putter provided with co-linear reference mark portions to facilitate use of the putter for accurate plumb lining, the mark portions being disposed at a predetermined location along the club shaft such that the lines and the longitudinal centerline of the shaft line in a vertical plane when the putter is held at the extending end of its handle for plumb lining, whereby the club shaft will appear as a vertical plumb line when viewed from a position from which the reference mark portions appear at substantially the circumferential center of the visible portion of the shaft.

  • Patent number: 4268111
    Abstract: A low-cost folding binocular which may be collapsed to a relatively thin package. The foldable binocular includes a laminated synthetic plastic, pressed paper or cardboard case provided with synthetic plastic objective and eyepiece lenses. The focus adjustment is effected by longitudinal folding of the case along the same fold lines which permit the case to be collapsed. No gluing is necessary.

  • Patent number: 4244475
    Abstract: A conveyor transports fish along a path past a fish sex detector. A rotating fish-engaging member is mounted downstream of the detector above the path. According to the sex of a fish as detected by the detector, the rotating fish-engaging member is either shifted downward to kick the fish off the conveyor or held away from the conveyor out of engagement with the fish so that it continues to be transported downstream by the conveyor.
