  • Publication number: 20210276915
    Abstract: Glasses are provided that are highly transparent and have very good resistance to solarization. The resistance to solarization is favored to a special extent by the production method. The concentrations of reduced polyvalent ion species are reduced by targeted use of bubbling with an oxidizing gas. Methods for producing glasses and to the uses thereof, particularly as core glasses in optical waveguides, are also provided.

  • Patent number: 10656926
    Abstract: A precompiled form of information derived from CIL metadata is created in a compact type layout (CTL) format. Information in CTL format for each data type in a program can be represented as a contiguous byte stream. Information that is irrelevant to decisions concerning layout of a data type in memory can be suppressed. Information that is irrelevant to creation of virtual machine data structures can be suppressed. The information in CTL format may reference types, methods, and fields by CIL metadata token. Virtual override information such as, for example, a logical virtual table layout, can be pre-computed. Interface implementation information can be pre-computed. A decoder can generate data structures used in generation of an executable from the CTL formatted data.

  • Patent number: 10572275
    Abstract: Compatibility can be maintained when program code and pre-computed data associated with the program code are distributed in separate modules by using a data structure of key/value pairs comprising a dictionary. The dictionary can include a fixed part, a floating part and a version number. The version number in the dictionary can be used to determine if a dictionary for the program is current or outdated by comparing the dictionary version number and the version number associated with a dictionary layout in the current shared library. The dictionary can be rebuilt dynamically if the version number of the dictionary does not match the version number of the dictionary layout in the current shared library. The version number of the dictionary can be updated to the version associated with the layout version and the version pointer in the dictionary can be updated to point to the updated version number.

  • Publication number: 20190217553
    Abstract: A method for processing phase change material includes providing pieces of phase change material having a transition temperature, the pieces of phase change material being in a solid phase. A medium is provided which is transformable from a liquid state to a solid state, the medium is in the liquid state and at a temperature which is below the transition temperature of the pieces of phase change material. The pieces of phase change material are combined with the medium to form a mixture. The mixture is supplied to a tool which forms a phase change material product. The medium is then transformed to the solid state.

  • Patent number: 10322601
    Abstract: A value and safety document comprises a substrate having a front side and a back side. An ink layer is applied to the front or back sides of the substrate. A first motif is incorporated into the ink layer, and is combined with a second motif. The second motif is arranged on the same side of the substrate as the first motif. The second motif is configured in the form of an emboss structure comprising a plurality of raised emboss elements having areas of different orientation. The emboss structure forms the second motif having a second tilt or motion effect, by different groups of emboss elements, having different characteristic parameters, reflecting incident light in different spatial areas. The emboss elements have respectively a lateral dimension of less than 30 ?m and a height of less than 10 ?m. The first motif is adapted at least partially to the second motif.

  • Patent number: 10165655
    Abstract: A system of control of interconnected signal emitters comprises controller modules, microcontrollers, electronic drivers and signal emitters. The connection input of each electronic driver is connected to the output of another electronic driver or to the output of a microcontroller, and the single output of each electronic driver is connected to the single connection input of another electronic driver or to the output of a microcontroller; each electronic driver being part of a driver chain between controller modules. Described developments comprise the use of Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs), LED strips, sensors (e.g. ambient light, distance, motion, proximity, imaging, audio, temperature, pressure, etc), wired and/or wireless communication interfaces, power supply configurations and different topological arrangements (e.g. 2D, 3D, unidirectional or bidirectional arrangements, root or bridge vertices, interactive mesh, k-cyclic graphs, etc). Associated method steps (e.g.
