  • Publication number: 20190007139
    Abstract: A textile capable of detecting electromagnetic radiation includes interlaced fibers; a photodetector embedded, as a result of a fiber draw process, within a particular one of the fibers; and a first electrical conductor extending within the particular fiber and along a longitudinal axis thereof. The first electrical conductor is in electrical contact with the photodetector, and the photodetector position in the particular fiber corresponds to a lowest energy configuration relative to a pattern of flow along the longitudinal axis of the particular fiber throughout the fiber draw process. A method of manufacturing the textile and a system including the textile are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 9974562
    Abstract: A surgical tool and method of use during laparascopic surgery, the tool including a shaft having a distal region with an elastic modulus E. Distal and proximal regions of the shaft have outer diameters D1 and D2 respectively, with D2>D1. The distal region has a bend and terminates in a working feature having a distal end. The distal region has a length L1 measured in a direction parallel to the shaft axis in the proximal region, and has an offset doff relative to the proximal region where doff>D2. The elastic modulus E and the length of L1 are selected so that the working feature is insertable through an access device yet the distal region does not deflect noticeably when a force of 10 N is applied perpendicular to the distal end of the working feature.

  • Patent number: 8635609
    Abstract: An update service is provided for maintaining software of one or more users, or an enterprise. On behalf of users or enterprises, the update service collects information from various software vendors about the certification and updates for their software. Dependencies or issues between the software are determined based on the information collected from the software vendors. A set of applicable updates for particular users or enterprises may then be determined based on the dependencies or issues. The update service may then broker various aspects of the delivery and installation of these updates.

  • Patent number: 7184641
    Abstract: A new class of surface plasmon waveguides is presented. The basis of these structures is the presence of surface plasmon modes, supported on the interfaces between the dielectric regions and the flat unpatterned surface of a bulk metallic substrate. The waveguides discussed here are promising to have significant applications in the field of nanophotonics by being able to simultaneously shrink length, time and energy scales, allowing for easy coupling over their entire bandwidth of operation, and exhibiting minimal absorption losses limited only by the intrinsic loss of the metallic substrate. These principles can be used for many frequency regimes (from GHz and lower, all the way to optical).
