  • Publication number: 20130114140
    Abstract: A bidirectional Cartesian-cylindrical converter system and method for converting the spatial distribution of polarization states include a radial polarization converter capable of receiving a linearly polarized, spatially uniform, polarization distribution beam in order to convert it into a beam having a radial or azimuthal distribution of polarization states about an axis of symmetry. An optical device compensates for the phase shift induced by the radial polarization converter and is capable of introducing a spatially uniform phase shift to compensate for the phase shift introduced by the.

  • Patent number: 7306388
    Abstract: A peripheral device includes a printer printing a paper sheet, a cutter cutting the paper sheet, and a mechanism for receiving instructions. The printer includes a first print head to print text or drawings on a paper sheet by ink ejection as a function of the received instructions, a second print head to eject an absorbent ink, as a function of the received instructions, capable of in depth penetration into the paper sheet, the absorbent ink being deposited on the locations to be cut out. The cutter includes a low power laser emitting a light beam with a wavelength absorbed by locations marked with absorbent ink, the power of the laser being sufficient to cut the paper sheet at the inked locations and/or for partial ablation of the paper. A computer system includes the device and a method creates documents or paper objects using the computer system.

  • Patent number: 7254963
    Abstract: The device and process allow for continuous processing of metal wire sheathed in glass (10) of considerable length. Normally a feed pipe (15) containing all the necessary metal, itself placed into a glass tube (20), so as to continuously supply a bead (14) to the lower part of the glass tube (20). Heat from a first inductor (23) around the glass tube (20) and a second inductor (24) under the glass tube (20) allow to maintain a bead (14) at a stable temperature and in a continuous manner and to obtain the continuous drawing process of a metal wire sheathed in glass (10).

  • Publication number: 20070082560
    Abstract: A method and computer program product for assembling sheets of paper include cutting at least one “female” cut motif having a female slit in a first sheet. For each female slit, the method and computer program product include cutting in a second sheet a “male” cut motif having a central portion and two cuts at either end of the central portion. Further, the method and computer program product include cutting in each other sheet at least one “female” motif or “male” motif such that other sheets all have the same motif. The method also includes assembling each of the sheets having the same motif with the sheet having a different motif by inserting the central portion of the “male” motif into the female slit of the “female” motif.

  • Patent number: 6677762
    Abstract: The process determines the permeability of the magnetic material by disturbance of a hyper frequency coaxial line. In the process, a sample of the material is formed and placed in a hyper frequency coaxial line. The reflection and/or transmission of a hyper frequency electromagnetic wave on and/or through this coaxial line is measured and the result of this measurement is used to deduce the magnetic permeability of the material. The fractional volume of magnetic material in the sample compared with the volume of the disturbed coaxial line is less than 1%.
