  • Patent number: 10756231
    Abstract: Group III nitride based light emitting diode (LED) structures include multiple quantum wells with barrier-well units that include III nitride interface layers. Each interface layer may have a thickness of no greater than about 30% of an adjacent well layer, and a comparatively low concentration of indium or aluminum. One or more interface layers may be present in a barrier-well unit. Multiple barrier-well units having different properties may be provided in a single active region.

  • Patent number: 6370238
    Abstract: An improved prompting system for accessing specified functions. According to one embodiment, a particular user may identify himself to the system and thereafter preprogram one or more paths that lead directly to a desired function within the hierarchical menu prompting system. The next time the user needs to access the system the user can navigate directly to the desired function by pressing a predetermined key or sequence of keys on his or her Touch-Tone dial. Alternatively, the prompting system may present as an option a direct path to the desired function.

  • Patent number: 6076697
    Abstract: A crate for storing and transporting cartons having a crate floor and four sidewalls integrally attached to the crate floor extending upward from the floor forming an interior of the crate. The cartons have a plurality of pressure points on the exterior bottom surface of the carton. The crate floor has a plurality of recesses whereby a recess is subjacent each pressure point on the carton despite the position of a carton within the crate. In addition, a recess is subjacent each pressure point wherein each carton within a crate has the same volumetric size and the volumetric size is selected from a plurality of volumetric sizes.

  • Patent number: 5966351
    Abstract: A system and method for enabling the sender of electronic mail messages to access a recipient's mailbox to reprioritize the messages previously sent by the sender. The system searches the recipient's mailbox for messages sent by the sender and unread by the recipient. An unopened message counter is used to determine the number of unopened messages in the recipient's mailbox. A message review unit enables the sender to review the unread messages. A message prioritization unit is used to reprioritize the unread messages.
