  • Publication number: 20160269719
    Abstract: An optical device includes (a) a sensor of luminous energy from an external light source; (b) a transparent plate between the external light source and the sensor, having a first, front surface oriented towards the external light source and a second, rear surface oriented towards the sensor, the transparent plate being optically structured on one of the two surfaces thereof by a plurality of straight optical elements that are parallel to one another; and (c) a plurality of image strips separated by transparency strips. The longitudinal axis of the image strips is tilted by an angle (a) other than zero relative to the longitudinal axis of the optical elements of the transparent plate, such that images viewed through the transparent plate appear with a certain relief, while the energy production of the sensor remains substantially constant regardless of the angle of incidence of external light on the device.

  • Publication number: 20160072430
    Abstract: The invention relates to a device including a solar panel, a transparent plate serving as a light guide, an image consisting of multiple opaque or semitransparent image areas separated by totally transparent areas or micro-holes exposing said solar panel, wherein said image is printed on or directly arranged against said transparent plate, and a light source propagates the light thereof within the body of said transparent plate. Said device is particularly characterized in that said transparent plate comprises optical means arranged so as to redirect most of the light injected by said light source towards the image areas.

  • Patent number: 8796765
    Abstract: An integrated circuit chip includes: a plurality of parallel wells of alternated conductivity types formed in the upper portion of a semiconductor substrate of a first conductivity type; in each well of the first type, a plurality of MOS transistors having a channel of the second conductivity type, and in each well of the second type, a plurality of MOS transistors having a channel of the first type, transistors of neighboring wells being inverted-connected; and a device of protection against attacks, including: a layer of the second type extending under said plurality of wells, from the lower surface of said wells; and regions of lateral insulation between the wells, said regions extending from the upper surface of the wells to said layer.

  • Patent number: 7964432
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a micro-module for capturing images having an imager and at least one lens, includes manufacturing at least one imager on a first plate of a semiconductor material, producing at least one optical zone to form a lens in at least one second plate of a transparent material, and of assembling the first and second plates so that the imager can receive light through the optical zone.

  • Patent number: 7842909
    Abstract: A CMOS imager includes a photosite array and a microlens array. The microlens array comprises microlenses of a first type and microlenses of a second type, the microlenses of first type being manufactured according to a first circular template having a first radius, the microlenses of second type being manufactured according to a second circular template having a second radius inferior to the first radius, and the first and second templates having overlap areas. One advantage is that the CMOS imager has a high fill rate.
