  • Patent number: 9115868
    Abstract: A wavelength conversion component for remote wavelength conversion is described in which a wavelength conversion layer is sandwiched between two light transmissive hermetic substrates. The light transmissive hermetic substrates form a barrier that protects the wavelength conversion layer from exposure to external environmental conditions. In some approaches, the wavelength conversion component further includes a sealant material disposed around an outer edge of the sandwich structure, where the sealant material hermetically seals an outer edge wavelength conversion layer.

  • Patent number: 8416648
    Abstract: Producing a servo pattern on a media involves rotating a master, and during a first revolution of the master, forming a first transition at a first radial position on the master, and forming a first transition at a second radial position. During a second revolution of the master, a second transition at the first radial position is formed, and a second transition at the second radial position is formed. By exposing individual servo burst transitions located at the first and second radial positions, in separate disk revolutions, only one of the magnetic transitions will inherit a particular deflection from a nominal radial position. If there are any mechanical disturbances, each magnetic transition will be randomly displaced from its nominal position, reducing the written-in run-out by ?n, where n is the number of magnetic transitions in a particular servo burst.
