  • Publication number: 20220299449
    Abstract: Improved inspection techniques are described herein for checking for the presence of and identifying surface defects on a honeycomb body. The improved inspection utilizes measurement of travel of an outer surface of the honeycomb body to collect images of the outer surface. The images are combined into a composite image showing the outer surface of the honeycomb body. The composite image is analyzed to identify surface defects.

  • Patent number: 11439401
    Abstract: Embolic coils with detachable segments that are separated by detachment capsules that are thermolytically degradable such that varying lengths of coil may be implanted into a vascular malformation to occlude same. The capsules are radiotransparent when compared to the adjoining coil segments to the location of the segments is easily seen. The capsules further include protruding electrical contacts that make positive contact with terminals on a delivery catheter. The terminals on the delivery catheter serve as markers so the relationship between the detachment capsules and the terminals is easily visible under x-ray.

  • Publication number: 20220130450
    Abstract: Voltages loaded onto the bit lines in a first CA section of a memory array can be latched by enabling the BLSA between the first section and a second section adjacent to the first section causing latched voltages to propagate to bit lines in the second section. Voltages propagated to the bit lines in the second section using the latches between the second section and a third section. Voltages can be propagated sequentially from section to subsequent adjacent section until a target location is reached. The scheme can be applied as a method of page-data write access in a memory chip, of which page data can be propagated sequentially from section to subsequent adjacent section until a target location is reached, and then, activating a word line in a section of the memory comprising the target location to write voltages to the memory cells at the target location.

  • Patent number: 11224378
    Abstract: A treatment system can include a channel generation system configured to expose an infected region of a target tissue with a laser beam traveling along an optical axis and focused at a focal volume located in or adjacent to the target tissue. The laser beam can have a wavelength ranging from about 100 nm to about 400 nm. The laser beam can be configured to generate at least a first channel in the infected region. The treatment system can also include a detection system configured to detect a first radiation generated by one or more of (i) the target tissue, (ii) a fungi coupled to the infected region in the target tissue, and (iii) an adjacent tissue located proximal to the target tissue as a result of interaction with the laser beam. The treatment system can also include a delivery system configured to deposit an active treatment agent in the at least first channel.
