  • Patent number: 11405690
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus to calibrate media ratings based on return path data are disclosed. An apparatus includes a processor and memory including instructions that, when executed, cause the processor to: determine an initial rating for the media provided in a first geographic area based on return path data (RPD) tuning information obtained from RPD devices in subscriber households in the first geographic area; determine a first panelist rating for the media provided in a second geographic area based on first panel tuning information obtained from first metering devices in a first subset of panelist households in the second geographic area; determine a nonsubscriber calibration factor based on the first panelist rating; and determine a final rating for the media in the first geographic area by modifying the initial rating based on the nonsubscriber calibration factor.

  • Patent number: 7804019
    Abstract: A substrate is provided including a growth surface that is offcut relative to a plane defined by a crystallographic orientation of the substrate at an offcut angle of about 5 degrees to about 45 degrees. A thermoelectric film is epitaxially grown on the growth surface. A crystallographic orientation of the thermoelectric film may be tilted about 5 degrees to about 30 degrees relative to the growth surface. The growth surface of the substrate may also be patterned to define a plurality of mesas protruding therefrom prior to epitaxial growth of the thermoelectric film. Related methods and thermoelectric devices are also discussed.

  • Publication number: 20070028956
    Abstract: Forming a thermoelectric device may include forming a thermoelectric superlattice including a plurality of alternating layers of different thermoelectric materials wherein a period of the alternating layers varies over a thickness of the superlattice. More particularly, forming the superlattice may include depositing the superlattice on a single crystal substrate using epitaxial deposition. In addition, the single crystal substrate may be removed from the superlattice, and a second thermoelectric superlattice may be provided with the first and second thermoelectric superlattices having opposite conductivity types. Moreover, the first and second thermoelectric superlattices may be thermally coupled in parallel between two thermally conductive plates while electrically coupling the first and second thermoelectric superlattices in series. Related materials and devices and structures are also discussed.
