  • Publication number: 20200035300
    Abstract: Phase change material can be set with a multistage set process. Set control logic can heat a phase change semiconductor material (PM) to a first temperature for a first period of time. The first temperature is configured to promote nucleation of a crystalline state of the PM. The control logic can increase the temperature to a second temperature for a second period of time. The second temperature is configured to promote crystal growth within the PM. The nucleation and growth of the crystal set the PM to the crystalline state. The multistage ramping up of the temperature can improve the efficiency of the set process relative to traditional approaches.

  • Publication number: 20200024614
    Abstract: Compositions and methods for controlling pests are provided. The methods involve transforming organisms with a nucleic acid sequence encoding an insecticidal protein. In particular, the nucleic acid sequences are useful for preparing plants and microorganisms that possess insecticidal activity. Thus, transformed bacteria, plants, plant cells, plant tissues and seeds are provided. Compositions are insecticidal nucleic acids and proteins of bacterial species. The sequences find use in the construction of expression vectors for subsequent transformation into organisms of interest including plants, as probes for the isolation of other homologous (or partially homologous) genes. The pesticidal proteins find use in controlling, inhibiting growth or killing Lepidopteran, Coleopteran, Dipteran, fungal, Hemipteran and nematode pest populations and for producing compositions with insecticidal activity.

  • Patent number: 10492311
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a flexible display device, wherein there is a flexible support structure fixed on a surface of the flexible display module, which is used to disperse stress. During use of the flexible display device, the flexible support structure can be used to disperse the point force or linear force that the flexible display device is subject to when being bent into even planar force. Besides, the flexible support structure can reduce the stress exerted on the flexible display module, avoiding delamination among the film layers caused by local stress concentration on the flexible display module. In addition, given the same thickness of the flexible display module, the flexible display device can be bent to a smaller bending radius.

  • Publication number: 20190268427
    Abstract: Multi-computing device network based cross-device conversion determination is described. A content selection computer server can identify cross-device conversions. A first computing device accesses third-party content via a first computer network connection. A second computing device accesses a webpage of the third-party content provider via a second computer network connection. The first and devices can be logged into a same online account. The content selection computer server can obtain, via a content tag that includes a script that executes on a webpage that includes the third-party content, data indicating that the first computing device accessed the third-party content. The selection computer server determines the conversion from the content tag and the second computing device having accessed the webpage.
