  • Publication number: 20200081313
    Abstract: An optical waveguide modulator with automatic bias control is disclosed. A dither signal is applied to the modulator bias and its signature detected in light tapped from an output of the modulator using a phase sensitive dither detector such as a lock-in amplifier. The detected signal is processed using pre-recorded information defining the direction of the detected signal change relative to a change in the modulator bias, and the bias is adjusted in the direction determined using the information. An IQ bias of a quadrature modulator is controlled by dithering bias settings of two inner modulators at different dither frequencies, and detecting an oscillation at a sum frequency.

  • Patent number: 7008003
    Abstract: A pocket (P) structure formed by providing a pocket opening (41) in a trim main body and installing a case-shaped pocket cover (50) having an upper opening (51) on the rear side of the pocket opening (41) is provided. The front wall part of the pocket (P) is formed in a double wall structure comprising the trim main body (40) and a front wall (55) of the pocket cover (50). The trim main body (40) and the front wall (55) of the pocket cover (50) are provided with locking holes (44) and locking pieces (56), respectively, so as to eliminate iron clips in order to reduce cost and simplify a recycle operation. Patch ribs (45, 57) are installed on opposed surfaces of the rear surfaces of the trim main body and the front wall (55) of the pocket cover (50) so as to provide a good grasp at the time the pocket cover is grasped.

  • Publication number: 20050093323
    Abstract: A storage receptacle is usable in a map pocket without requiring an intermediate adapter ring. The storage receptacle only uses part of the storage space within the map pocket, and leaves the rest of the space available for maps or other personal items. The receptacle may be dimensioned to use less than half the space of the vehicle door pocket. In a selected illustrative embodiment, a storage receptacle is adapted to receive and store glasses therein, such as eyeglasses or sunglasses. The storage receptacle includes a receptacle case made from a strong plastic material, and may also include a liner made from a material such as foam padding, cloth, and/or flocking provided on an inner wall of the receptacle case, to protect glasses which may be stored therein.

  • Patent number: 6362823
    Abstract: A method for utilizing an intellectual structure for visualizing a system of multi-variate data points in a parallel coordinate system, identifying an area of interest within the system, and then transforming a selected portion of the system for visualization in single-point representations of n-dimensional points using broken-line parallel coordinates, where the n point representations of conventional parallel coordinates are brought back into a single point representation that is the single point vector resultant of n dimensional spaces viewable in familiar three dimensional display space.
