  • Patent number: 11986983
    Abstract: A fish model to replace the use of live fish in hydroelectric studies is provided. The fish model is cast from ballistic gel to include the density, dimensions, and weight distribution of a selected species of living fish. The fish model is formed by additively manufacturing a mold based on a three-dimensional scan of an actual fish. The mold is then used to mass produce fish models for force measurement testing at various blade speeds, thickness, and impact angles. Each fish model includes a surrogate skin and an internal sensor for strike force measurements. Optional additional sensors include strain gauges, temperature probes, pressure probes, and load sensors, for example.

    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a lens including a lens body and an optical filter configured to attenuate visible light in certain spectral bands. At least some of the spectral bands can include spectral features that tend to substantially increase the colorfulness, clarity, and/or vividness of a scene. In certain embodiments, eyewear incorporates an optical filter that enhances chroma within one or more spectral bands. In some embodiments, a wearer of the eyewear can perceive the increase in chroma when viewing at least certain types of scenes.

  • Publication number: 20230054103
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a lens including a lens body and an optical filter configured to attenuate visible light in a plurality of spectral bands. Each of the plurality of spectral bands can include an absorptance peak with a spectral bandwidth, a maximum absorptance, and an integrated absorptance peak area within the spectral bandwidth. An attenuation factor obtained by dividing the integrated absorptance peak area within the spectral bandwidth by the spectral bandwidth of the absorptance peak can be greater than or equal to about 0.8 for the absorptance peak in each of the plurality of spectral bands.

  • Patent number: 11579470
    Abstract: Embodiments disclosed herein include eyewear that has one or more laminates applied to a lens body. In some embodiments, the lens body is constructed from a substantially rigid material having a curved shape. The lens body can have any desired curvature, including, for example, cylindrical, spherical or toroidal. A laminate can include a substantially flexible substrate and one or more functional layers or coatings applied to the substrate. In addition, one or more functional layers or coatings can be applied directly to the lens body. In certain embodiments, a bonding layer bonds a laminate to a convex and/or concave surface of the lens body. Examples of functional layers or coatings that can be applied to a laminate include anti-reflection coatings, interference stacks, hard coatings, flash mirrors, anti-static coatings, anti-fog coatings, other functional layers, or a combination of functional layers.

    Abstract: Embodiments comprise an eyewear having a lens, the lens having an optical filter. A transmittance spectral profile of the optical filter comprises a transmission valley having a minimum transmittance with a spectral bandwidth, wherein the minimum transmittance of the transmittance valley is positioned at a first wavelength from about 450 nm to about 475 nm; and the spectral bandwidth, equal to the full width of the transmittance valley at the minimum transmittance plus 30%, is less than or equal to about 30 nm.

  • Patent number: 11086148
    Abstract: Features are disclosed relating to an article such as eyewear customized to individual wearer parameters (e.g., measurements, preferences, etc.), and to systems and methods for customizing eyewear to individual wearer parameters. The system includes an input for receiving data representative of a three dimensional configuration of a portion of a wearer's face and an input for receiving data representative of a desired position where the wearer would like an eyewear frame to reside on the wearer's face. One system also includes a processor for determining a change in configuration of an eyewear component blank to allow the eyewear frame to reside in the desired position, and an eyewear component modifier for modifying the eyewear component blank so that the frame will reside in the desired position.

  • Publication number: 20210157170
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a high transmittance eyewear. The high transmittance eyewear can include a lens with a chroma enhancement filter. The lens can have a front surface and a rear surface. The high transmittance eyewear can further include a transmittance enhancement layer disposed over the front surface of the lens. The high transmittance eyewear that includes the transmittance enhancement layer and the chroma enhancement filter can provide a high optical transparency (e.g., a high optical transmittance) for the wearer for an indoor or a driving use while maintaining a chroma enhancement capability provided by the chroma enhancement filter.
