  • Patent number: 10978631
    Abstract: A method of producing a quantum circuit includes forming a mask on a substrate to cover a first portion of the substrate, implanting a second portion of the substrate with ions, and removing the mask, thereby providing a nanowire. The method further includes forming a first lead and a second lead, the first lead and the second lead each partially overlapping the nanowire. In operation, a portion of the nanowire between the first and second leads forms a quantum dot, thereby providing a quantum dot Josephson junction. The method further includes forming a third lead and a fourth lead, one of the third and fourth leads partially overlapping the nanowire, wherein the third lead is separated from the fourth lead by a dielectric layer, thereby providing a Dolan bridge Josephson junction. The nanowire is configured to connect the quantum dot Josephson junction and the Dolan bridge Josephson junction in series.

  • Publication number: 20210105659
    Abstract: A network device receives, from a congestion controller, traffic policy information associated with a data stream between a sender and a receiver, where the traffic policy information includes a maximum round trip delay time (RTT) and a maximum throughput rate (Rate). The network device obtains a receiver advertised window size (RWND) for the receiver for the data stream. The network device modifies the RWND based on the RTT and the Rate to produce a modified receiver window size (RWND?) and sends the RWND? to the sender for use in controlling congestion on the data stream between the sender and the receiver.

  • Publication number: 20210104795
    Abstract: A secondary battery and a battery unit is provided. The secondary battery includes: a housing including an accommodating hole with an opening; a top cover assembly connected to the housing in a sealed manner to cover and close the opening; an electrode assembly arranged in the accommodating hole, wherein the top cover assembly is spaced apart from the electrode assembly to form a first buffer gap for buffering the amount of expansion deformation of the electrode assembly in the axial direction. When the secondary battery expands, the first buffer gap can absorb the amount of expansion deformation to prevent the top cover assembly from being disconnected from the housing due to excessive stress, so as to reduce the possibility of failure of the secondary battery due to damage of the overall structure, thereby ensuring the structural integrity and the safety of the secondary battery.

  • Patent number: 10952651
    Abstract: Methods and systems for sensor calibration and sensor glucose (SG) fusion are used advantageously to improve the accuracy and reliability of orthogonally redundant glucose sensor devices, which may include optical and electrochemical glucose sensors. Calibration for both sensors may be achieved via fixed-offset and/or dynamic regression methodologies, depending, e.g., on sensor stability and Isig-Ratio pair correlation. For SG fusion, respective integrity checks may be performed for SG values from the optical and electrochemical sensors, and the SG values calibrated if the integrity checks are passed. Integrity checks may include checking for sensitivity loss, noise, and drift. If the integrity checks are failed, in-line sensor mapping between the electrochemical and optical sensors may be performed prior to calibration.
