  • Patent number: 10437371
    Abstract: A semi-reflective display and a method for fabricating and assembling a semi-reflective display are presented, where the display may be comprised of visible light rectifying antenna arrays tuned to four different colors, which when forward biased may use electric power to amplify reflected colored light, and when reversed biased may generate electric power by absorbing light. TFT-tunnel diode logic may be used to control each sub-pixel.

  • Patent number: 10095636
    Abstract: Techniques and logic are presented for encrypting and decrypting applications and related data within a multi-processor system to prevent tampering. The decryption and encryption may be performed either between a system bus and a processor's individual L1 cache memory or between a processor's instruction and execution unit and their respective L1 caches. The logic may include one or more linear feedback shift registers (LFSRs) that may be used for generation of unique sequential address related codes to perform the decryption of instructions and transformation logic that may be used for generation of equivalent offset address related codes to perform decryption and encryption of data. The logic may also be programmable and may be used for test purposes.

  • Patent number: 10072642
    Abstract: Hydro-carbon nanorings may be used, e.g., in power storage power transmission and transportation. Sufficiently cooled, an externally hydrogen doped carbon nanoring may be used to create a radial dipole containment field for electrons rotating in the nanoring. Such nanorings may transmit DC current with little or no loss. Similarly, an internally hydrogen doped carbon nanoring may be used to create a radial dipole containment field for positrons rotating in the nanoring. Virtually lossless transmission of AC current may be achieved by pairing such streams of electrons and positrons in their respective containment fields. Closed rotation of such streams may also be used to efficiently store large amounts of electrical energy. Finally, selectively accelerating and decelerating pairs of such paired electron and positron streams, which are moving at relativistic speeds, differential momentum may be created to cause physical movement.

  • Patent number: 9960480
    Abstract: A solar antenna array may comprise an array of antennas that may capture and convert sunlight into electrical power. Methods for constructing the solar antenna array may use a stencil and self aligning semiconductor processing steps to minimize cost. Designs may be optimized for capturing a broad spectrum of visible light and non-polarized light. Testing and disconnecting, defective antennas from the array may also be performed.

  • Patent number: 9917217
    Abstract: A solar antenna array may comprise an array of randomly placed carbon nanotube antennas that may capture and convert sunlight into electrical power. Methods for constructing the solar antenna array may use a mold and self aligning processing steps to minimize cost. Designs may be optimized for capturing a broad spectrum of non-polarized light. Alternatively, the array may generate light, and when connected in to an array of independently controllable sections may operate as either a reflective or light transmitting display.

  • Patent number: 9917225
    Abstract: A solar antenna array may comprise an emitter that may convert visible light into black body infrared radiation, and an array of antennas that may capture and convert the black body radiation into electrical power. Methods for constructing the solar antenna array may include using thermal insulation, high-gain low-e glass, and gasses with minimal heat transfer. A black body infrared antenna array may augment the electrical power from a visible light antenna array by converting its waste heat into additional electrical power.

  • Patent number: 9823689
    Abstract: A serial array processor may have an execution unit, which is comprised of a multiplicity of single bit arithmetic logic units (ALUs), and which may perform parallel operations on a subset of all the words in memory by serially accessing and processing them, one bit at a time, while an instruction unit of the processor is pre-fetching the next instruction, a word at a time, in a manner orthogonal to the execution unit.
