  • Publication number: 20210088535
    Abstract: Photonic devices, systems, and methods for detecting an analyte in a biological solution (e.g., whole blood) are provided. Representative photonic devices are optical ring resonators having nanoscale features and micron-sized diameters. Due to the compact size of these devices, many resonators can be disposed on a single substrate and tested simultaneously as a sample is passed over the devices. Typical analytes include blood cells, antibodies, and pathogens, as well as compounds indicative of the presence of blood cells or pathogens (e.g., serology). In certain embodiments, blood type can be determined through photonic sensing using a combination of direct detection of blood cells and serology. By combining the detection signals of multiple devices, the type of blood can be determined.

  • Publication number: 20200092206
    Abstract: A method for congestion control in a data communication protocol employing acknowledged communication may include measuring a flight size. A transmission rate may be measured. A trend of the flight size may be determined. A trend of the transmission rate may be determined, and the trend may be derived from a transmission rate gradient calculation, in which either the transmission rate measurements or the transmission rate gradient calculations or both may be filtered to reduce their temporal variability. Whether there is a congestion may be detected according to the determined trend of the transmission rate and the trend of the flight size. Upon detection of the congestion, a change may be made from a current congestion control state to a new congestion control state. Data may be transmitted while respecting a maximum amount of unacknowledged data which the transmitting node may transmit. An apparatus is also disclosed.
