  • Publication number: 20240029338
    Abstract: Disclosed approaches provide for irradiance caches which may be used to share irradiance between ray interactions spatially and/or temporally. An irradiance cache may store incoming irradiance or outgoing irradiance and may be updated by casting one or more rays from one or more locations to sample irradiance for the location(s). The number of rays that are cast may be reduced by ranking the locations, irradiance caches, and/or corresponding groups of geometry based on one or more characteristics thereof. For example, a ranking score may be computed based on camera distance, camera visibility, and/or a number of frames since a prior update. When sampling a location, outgoing irradiance from an outgoing irradiance cache may be used to determine shading when a hit distance of a ray used to generate the sample exceeds a threshold value.

  • Patent number: 11878103
    Abstract: Various exemplary methods, systems, and devices for joint to pump elevation level user interfaces, autocalibration for joint elevation, and joint pressure estimation are provided. In general, an arthroscopic pump can be configured to estimate fluid pressure at a surgical site, e.g., at a joint, to provide an accurate indication of fluid pressure to users. In an exemplary embodiment, the fluid pressure estimation is based on a fluid pressure measurement at the pump that is adjusted at the pump, e.g., by a processor at the pump that executes instructions stored in a memory at the pump, using one or more control algorithms that adjust for one or more factors, such as pressure loss in tubing and sheath through which fluid flows between the pump and the surgical site and elevation difference between the pump and the surgical site.

    Abstract: An example of a flow cell includes a substrate having depressions separated by interstitial regions. First and second primers are immobilized within the depressions. First transposome complexes are immobilized within the depressions, and the first transposome complexes include a first amplification domain. Second transposome complexes are also immobilized within the depressions, and the second transposome complexes include a second amplification domain. Some of the first transposome complexes, or some of the second transposome complexes, or some of both of the first and second transposome complexes include a modification to reduce tagmentation efficiency.

  • Patent number: 11708145
    Abstract: A hinge assembly 8a for an aircraft component including first and second hinge plates 9, 10, having an aerodynamic surface. A first seal assembly 28 to 32 is provided and arranged to seal between the aerodynamic surfaces of the hinge plates. A second seal assembly 38 to 42 is arranged to seal between the undersides of the hinge plates in order to reduce pressure leakage between voids under the hinge. The provision of two seal assemblies, each having a dedicated function, addresses the competing demands made on the sealing arrangement of an aircraft hinge assembly in use.

  • Publication number: 20230212667
    Abstract: Polynucleotide sequencing methods for sequencing one or more polynucleotide templates use primers bound to a surface as sequencing primers. The surface primers may include at least a portion of a surface oligonucleotide used during cluster formation. The sequencing methods may be used for single stranded sequencing or double stranded sequencing. Double stranded sequencing methods may employ an enzyme that has nick-translation activity. A kit includes all the reagents needed for sequencing does not include sequencing primers. The kit may be used to accomplish the sequencing methods of the present disclosure.

  • Patent number: 11308684
    Abstract: In various examples, a virtual light meter may be implemented along with ray tracing techniques in order to determine incident light values—e.g., incoming irradiance, incident radiance, etc.—for adjusting auto exposure values of rendered frames. For example, one or more rays may be used to sample incident light over a sampling pattern—such as a hemispherical sampling pattern—for any position in a virtual game environment. As a result, the incident light values may be sampled near a subject of interest in a scene or frame such that exposure values are consistent or stable regardless of the composition of the rendered frames.
