  • Patent number: 10563569
    Abstract: A diesel combustion system including a piston, an annular impinging block, and a combustion chamber. The combustion chamber is divided by the annular impinging block into an upper chamber and a lower chamber. The annular impinging block includes a lower guide surface that is adjacent to the lower chamber and that extends from a trough line connected to the piston to a crest line. The ratios among the inner diameter of the top of the piston, the outer diameter of the top of the piston, the diameter of the trough line, and the diameter of the crest line define the shape of the combustion chamber which leads to increased rate of combustion, reduced soot emission, and increased fuel efficiency.

  • Patent number: 10345149
    Abstract: A design method of a spectrometer and a spectrometer are disclosed, including the following steps: 1) determining an incident angle of a second incident slit and a groove-shaped cycle of a concave grating; 2) estimating a blaze angle of the concave grating, determining a surface material and a groove-shaped structure of the concave grating; 3) acquiring wavelength-diffraction efficiency curves; 4) determining values of incident angles ?A1 and ?A3 and values of wavelengths ?2 and ?3, and setting ?4 to equal ?2; 5) acquiring a record structural parameter and a use structural parameter; 6) determining a manufacture parameter of the concave grating; 7) determining locations of the three incident slits and the three photodetectors relative to the concave grating. The spectrometer acquired by using this method has relatively high diffraction efficiency in most spectrum regions and effectively alleviates the problem of relatively low diffraction efficiency in a broad spectrum region.

  • Patent number: 10316356
    Abstract: Provided is a method of constructing a sequencing library using an adaptor element in a bubble shape. The bubble-shaped adaptor is ligated to a DNA fragment respectively at the 3?-terminal and the 5?-terminal i.e., two bubble-shaped adaptors with same sequences are ligated in one step. The bubble-shaped adaptor-ligated product is then amplified with a primer complementary to the 3?-terminal of the long-chain nucleic acid of the bubble-shaped adaptor, so as to replace the non-paired sequence in the short-chain nucleic acid.

  • Publication number: 20190141717
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure provide techniques for interleaving in single user (SU) preamble puncturing in wireless local area networks (WLANs). In one implementation, a wireless device can identify an SU preamble puncture transmission, encode information for the SU preamble puncture transmission to produce encoded bits, parse the encoded bits into multiple segments, parse the encoded bits among multiple resource units (RUs) within each of the multiple segments, and perform a tone interleaving of the encoded bits within each of the multiple RUs. These techniques can be used in a 6 GHz band, as well as a 2.4 GHz band or a 5 GHz band.
