    Abstract: The disclosed structure is configured such that it does not support electromagnetic waves having frequencies within a selected band gap; those electromagnetic waves are thus reflected. Some variations provide an omnidirectional infrared reflector comprising a three-dimensional photonic crystal containing: rods of a first material that has a first refractive index, wherein the rods are arranged to form a plurality of lattice periods in three dimensions, and wherein the rods are connected at a plurality of nodes; and a second material that has a refractive index that is lower than the first refractive index, wherein the rods are embedded in the second material. The lattice spacing and the rod radius or width are selected to produce a photonic band gap within a selected band of the infrared spectrum. Methods of making and using the three-dimensional photonic crystal are described. Applications include thermal barrier coatings and blackbody emission signature control.

  • Patent number: 10728225
    Abstract: Embodiments include one or more client devices accessible by users, an online system, and one or more partner systems such that the online system is able to identify a user of the online system across different devices and browsers based on the user activity that occurs external to the online system. A user performs user actions (e.g. purchase a product) on a web page of a partner system and may provide personally identifiable information (PII) to the partner system. The partner system provides the hashed PII and user actions performed by the user to the online system. The online system identifies a user profile on the online system by matching personal information in the user profile to the hashed PII. The online system generates a confidence score indicating a likelihood that the identified user of the online system is the individual that performed the external user action.

  • Patent number: 10528981
    Abstract: An online system selects advertisements for a user based on characteristics of the user. The online system presents advertisements to the user having targeting criteria satisfied by the characteristics of the user. To increase the number of users eligible to be presented with an advertisement, the online system increases the users eligible to be presented with the advertisement to include users that do not meet targeting criteria included in the advertisement. The online system obtains a percentile of users based on a performance metric associated with the advertisement and determines a cutoff measure of affinity based on the percentile and measures of affinity between various users and the advertisement. A user is eligible to be presented with the advertisement if a measure of affinity between the user and the advertisement is greater than the cutoff measure of affinity for the advertisement.

  • Patent number: 10318983
    Abstract: An online system selects advertisements for presentation a user based on characteristics of the user. The online system monitors performance of advertisements based on a goal for the advertisement and a time interval for achieving the goal. During a time period within the time interval, the online system determines an actual performance of the advertisement and compares the actual performance to a portion of the goal associated with the time period. If the actual performance does not satisfy the portion of the goal associated with the time period, the online system expands targeting criteria of the advertisement to increase a number of users eligible to be presented with the advertisement.
