  • Patent number: 10734193
    Abstract: A method of preparing a sample for microstructure diagnostics on a sample body by material-ablating processing, and subsequently producing an examination region on the sample portion, the examination region including a target region to be examined, the method including producing a terracing zone including the target region on at least one surface of the sample portion, wherein at least one notch with flanks extending obliquely in relation to the surface is produced next to the target region by material-ablating beam processing to produce the terracing zone, and ablating material from the surface of the sample portion in the region of the terracing zone by an ion beam, which is radiated under grazing incidence onto the surface obliquely to the direction of extent of the notch such that the target region lies behind the notch in the incoming radiation direction of the ion beam and, as a result of the terracing in the region behind the notch, the surface is recessed substantially parallel to the original height

  • Patent number: 10657187
    Abstract: A system for real-time search, including: a set of partitions, each including a set of segments, each segment corresponding to a time slice of messages posted to the messaging platform, and a real-time search engine configured to receive a search term in parallel with other partitions in the set of partitions, and search at least one of the set of segments in reverse chronological order of the corresponding time slice to identify document identifiers of messages containing the search term; and a search fanout module configured to: receive a search query including the search term; send the search term to each of the set of partitions for parallel searching; and return, in response to the search query, at least one of the identified document identifiers of messages containing the search term.

  • Publication number: 20200111754
    Abstract: A semiconductor device includes a structured interlayer on a substrate, a structured power metallization on the structured interlayer, and a barrier on the structured power metallization. The barrier is configured to prevent diffusion of at least one of water, water ions, sodium ions, potassium ions, chloride ions, fluoride ions, and sulphur ions towards the structured power metallization. A first defined edge of the structured interlayer faces the same direction as a first defined edge of the structured power metallization and extends beyond the first defined edge of the structured power metallization by at least 0.5 microns. The structured interlayer has a compressive residual stress at room temperature and the structured power metallization generates a tensile stress at room temperature that is at least partly counteracted by the compressive residual stress of the structured interlayer. The first defined edge of the structured power metallization has a sidewall which slopes inward.

  • Publication number: 20190290035
    Abstract: The present invention concerns a method of connecting an item of dishware (1) to a contactlessly readable electronic information carrier (2) comprising the steps: providing the item of dishware (1), wherein the item of dishware (1) comprises a material selected from a group consisting of glass, ceramic and plastic or a combination thereof, and attaching the information carrier to the item of dishware. Contactlessly readable electronic information carriers applied to a self-adhesive carrier film are known. They can also be adhesively bonded to an item of dishware for identification thereof. In comparison according to the invention the above-mentioned method is further developed in that it further includes the steps: applying a cover layer of printing ink in such a way that the cover layer at least portion-wise covers a surface of the information carrier and the cover layer extends over a portion, which is not covered by the information carrier, on the surface of the item of dishware.

  • Patent number: 10394754
    Abstract: A method and indexing system indexes the content of a body of documents into a content index, and the metadata of the documents into a metadata index which is a parallel index to the content index. The metadata is copied into a data store that is easily accessible by the indexing system and is stored in native form. The indexing system can dynamically re-index the metadata from the native metadata in the data store to produce a new metadata index which is used to replace the original metadata index. Search queries received by a search engine associated with the indexing system are applied to both the content and metadata index and the results are merged for return.

  • Publication number: 20190168547
    Abstract: Display assemblies as disclosed herein are configured for attachment with a vulcanized rubber article and are provided in the form of different material layers. Display assemblies generally comprise one or more display layers of elastomeric material configured to provide a desired display indicia, an intermediate layer formed from an elastomeric material different from that of the one or more display layers, and an adhesive layer wherein the intermediate layer is interposed between the adhesive layer and the one or more display layers. The one more display layers may be configured to act together or separately to provide a desired display indicia to provide a desired visual display or feature on the surface of the vulcanized rubber article, which may be a sidewall surface of a tire.

  • Publication number: 20190143742
    Abstract: The decorative decal assembly (20) is configured to be secured within a recessed surface (26) of a weight plate (18) and includes an adhesive layer (36), a printable surface (44) of an adjacent ink protective printing layer (42), and one or more print decals (48) secured to the printable surface (44) and between an upper support surface (40) of the adhesive layer (36) and the ink protective layer (42). The recessed surface (26) defines a display area (56) surrounded on all sides by an expansion zone (58) extending between the display area (56) and the shoulders (30, 32) of the weight plate (18) that define the recessed surface (26) to permit limited expansion of perimeter edges (62A, 62B) of the decal assembly (20) into the expansion zone (58) without contacting the shoulders (30, 32) whenever the weight plate (18) experiences a bounce shock.
