  • Publication number: 20120226307
    Abstract: A networked system in which the majority of data bypass the server (101) to improve end-to-end performance of network access by achieving higher throughput between the network (130) and storage system (110). The apparatus consists of a network interface (120), server computer interface (240), and storage interface (250); and a switching element (201) and a high-layer protocol decoding and control unit (205). Incoming traffic is decoded and compared against a routing table. If there is a matching entry, it will be routed to the storage interface or sent to the server for further processing by default. The routing table entries are set up based on the initial nature of the applications. Subsequently, barring any changes or errors, there will be no data exchange between the server and the device. There may also be a speed matching funcion between the network and storage, load balancing function for servers, and flow control for priority and QOS purposes.

  • Publication number: 20060241362
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method of mapping the intraretinal pH of a retina which is marked by a pH-dependent fluorescent marker, in which the retina is illuminated with a first excitation radiation. According to the invention, a first image of the fluorescence emitted by the retina is formed as a bi-directional matrix of pixels at the wavelength of the peak of the fluorescence emission spectrum. Subsequently, the retina is illuminated with a second excitation radiation and a second image is formed of the fluorescence emitted thereby. Finally, the ratio at each pixel between the levels of fluorescence emitted in response to the two respective wavelengths is calculated, said ratio being representative of the pH of the retina, and a pH map of the retina is deduced.

  • Patent number: 6685927
    Abstract: A device and method is disclosed for permanent or semi-permanent removal of hair through the activation of microparticles introduced into hair follicles. Microparticles are incorporated into a composition that is topically applied to the skin. These microparticles containing or consisting of chromophores or chemically activated molecules are of a variety of shapes and sizes. Microparticles are within a size range of 1 micron to 70 microns, and preferably between 10 and 50 microns. Microparticles of this size and variety of shapes enter hair follicles on all areas of the skin without entering other areas of the skin, such as the stratum corneum or sweat gland channels. Treatment of the skin with electromagnetic radiation, ultrasonic radiation or chemical means activates the chromophore or chemically activated compounds, thus destroying the hair follicle without damaging other areas of the skin.
