  • Patent number: 10486092
    Abstract: A filter arrangement for an aquarium is disclosed. The filter arrangement can include a filter housing assembly, a pump assembly, and a transfer tube assembly. In one aspect, the housing assembly and the pump assembly are separately constructed assemblies that are connected to each other via a first dampening member to prevent vibration and sound from being transmitted from the pump assembly to the filter housing assembly. The filter arrangement can further include a second dampening member connecting the pump assembly with the transfer tube assembly to further prevent vibration and sound from being transmitted from the pump assembly to the filter housing assembly. A third dampening member can be provided at a location where the transfer tube assembly is supported within the filter housing assembly to further isolate vibration and sound from being transmitted from the pump assembly to the filter housing assembly via the transfer tube assembly.

  • Patent number: 10467553
    Abstract: Methods and systems for updating a calendar entry for an accommodation listing are disclosed. In one embodiment, the method comprises generating an availability model and an acceptance model for an accommodation listing in an accommodation reservation system and determining based on those models the probability that the accommodation listing would be able to be booked. Furthermore, the result of an accommodation search query can be filtered and/or sorted using the determined probability of booking.

  • Publication number: 20160379821
    Abstract: A method for preparing a device having a film on a substrate is disclosed. In the method, a film is deposited on a substrate. The film includes a single-crystalline or poly-crystalline semiconducting thin film. The single-crystalline or poly-crystalline semiconducting thin film is formed by sequential evaporation of a first and a second element. One example device prepared by the method includes a silicon substrate and a film on the substrate, wherein the film includes semiconducting and single- or poly-crystalline pyrite as the compound.

  • Patent number: 8094771
    Abstract: The invention describes a product and a method for generating electrical power directly from nuclear power. More particularly, the invention describes the use of a liquid semiconductor as a means for efficiently converting nuclear energy, either nuclear fission and/or radiation energy, directly into electrical energy. Direct conversion of nuclear energy to electrical energy is achieved by placing nuclear material in close proximity to a liquid semiconductor. Nuclear energy emitted from the nuclear material, in the form of fission fragments or radiation, enters the liquid semiconductor and creates electron-hole pairs. By using an appropriate electrical circuit an electrical load is applied and electrical energy generated as a result of the creation of the electron-hole pairs.

  • Publication number: 20040212612
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for producing stereoscopic 3-D images for monoscopic 3-D data including an automated method and apparatus for converting input monoscopic 3-D graphical data to stereoscopic 3-D images. The method includes extrapolating a left stereo image and a right stereo image to minimize distortion in the final 3-D stereoscopic image which is independent of the video display hardware used for viewing the images and thus can be used with various display systems without modification. The method and apparatus may also be used with or without glasses (using an auto-stereoscopic display) for providing realistic 3-D images.

  • Publication number: 20040197537
    Abstract: A class of material having barium, cadmium, and tantalum provides high dielectric constant and low loss for use in electronic and optical applications. The material may also contain an element with valence 2 such as magnesium and zinc. Transition metal dopants can also be added to reduce annealing time and/or to tune the temperature-coefficient of resonant frequency. The dielectric material can be made in ceramic or thin film form. The process begins with a mixture of barium carbonate, zinc oxide, tantalum oxide, and cadmium oxide blended together. The slurry is dried and heated. A sintering agent is added to produce high-density samples. The resulting slurry is dried and an adhesive is added to press the mixture into a solid ceramic samples. Thin film dielectric material is made with a thin film growth technique, such as by exposing the mixture to a laser and growing the material on a substrate.
