  • Publication number: 20230044076
    Abstract: A method fits a digital hearing aid having an input transducer, a signal processing device and an output transducer. The signal processing device is configured to form an evaluation unit, a comparator unit, and a pre-amplification unit. An acoustic test signal is generated by an external testing device while the hearing aid is worn by a hearing-aid wearer. A digital test input signal is generated by the input transducer on the basis of the acoustic test signal. A sound pressure-dependent test quantity is determined on the basis of the digital test input signal by the evaluation unit. A deviation between the sound pressure-dependent test quantity and a reference quantity stored in the signal processing device is determined by the comparator unit. A pre-amplification by the pre-amplification unit is adjusted on the basis of the determined deviation.

  • Patent number: 11513328
    Abstract: A method and microscopy system are useful for recording an image of a sample region. A laser beam is directed onto the sample region with interface(s). An objective lens facilitates images the laser beam on a focusing point which lies on the optical axis of the objective lens or an axis parallel thereto, and which lies in a focusing plane. The objective lens and the sample region are displaced with respect to one another in relative fashion along the optical axis of the objective lens to different relative displacement positions. Intensity values of the laser beam are captured for a respective relative displacement position. A respective highest intensity value for a respective displacement position, a curve of the highest intensity values, and a reference relative displacement position from at least one maximum of the curve, are determined. Image(s) of the sample region is/are captured at the reference relative displacement position.
