  • Publication number: 20090043109
    Abstract: A family of one- and two-photon dyes that have overlapping fluorescence excitation maxima between 365 nm and 425 nm and that are specifically functionalized for coupling to biomolecules. The dyes have defined Stokes shifts such that they produce a continuum of emission wavelengths. The dyes are asymmetrical bis stilbenes. The asymmetry of these dyes facilitates functionalization of the dyes with carboxyl, thiol, aldehyde-reactive or amine-reactive groups, which in turn facilitates coupling with macromolecules. Furthermore, the dyes of the present invention are photostable and have high quantum yields (fluorescence intensity).

  • Patent number: 7283303
    Abstract: A conductive anti-reflection coating has a surface quarterwave layer that is broken up into smaller portions by inserting one or more thin layers of conductive material in the dielectric material. The resulting stack of alternating layers of a dielectric material and an electrically conductive material provides a solid electrical contact to the buried conductive layer and exhibits a low surface contact resistance.
