  • Patent number: 10998696
    Abstract: A vertical cavity surface emitting laser includes a first laminate including first semiconductor layers having a first Al composition, and second semiconductor layers having a second Al composition greater than the first Al composition; a current confinement structure including a current aperture and a current blocker; a first compound semiconductor layer adjacent to the current confinement structure; and a second compound semiconductor layer adjacent to the first laminate and the first compound semiconductor layer. The first compound semiconductor layer has a first aluminum profile changing monotonously in a direction from the first laminate to the current confinement structure from a first minimum Al composition within a range greater than the first Al composition and smaller than the second Al composition to a first maximum Al composition. The second compound semiconductor layer has an Al composition greater than the first Al composition and smaller than the first maximum Al composition.

  • Publication number: 20190208130
    Abstract: Data transmission systems and methods. In one embodiment, a data transmission system includes a plurality of imaging devices, a plurality of control devices, and an information processing device. One of the plurality of control devices operates as a master control device and a remainder of the plurality of control devices operate as client control devices. The information processing device is configured to transmit an acquisition request for one or more images captured by a first imaging device of the plurality of imaging devices to the master control device. The master control device is configured to transfer the acquisition request to one of the client control devices that controls the first imaging device. In response to receiving the acquisition request, the one of the client control devices is configured to transfer a list of images captured by the first imaging device to the information processing device.

  • Patent number: 8838024
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus including a housing having a first surface and a second surface; a display disposed on the first surface of the housing; a near-field communication interface disposed at a first position on or beneath the second surface; and a processor configured to control the display to display a graphic indication corresponding to the near-field communication interface at a second position opposing the first position.
