  • Patent number: 11497263
    Abstract: Garments comprise a plurality of adhesive bonds within a bonded region of the garment; a garment base that defines a garment lateral edge; and a moisture capture assembly bonded to the garment base within the bonded region. The moisture capture assembly comprises a moisture retention portion configured to absorb and retain moisture; and an anti-leak portion configured to restrict moisture from exiting the moisture retention portion. The bonded region extends fully around a perimeter of the moisture capture assembly, and the moisture capture assembly and the bonded region do not extend to the garment lateral edge.

  • Publication number: 20220350012
    Abstract: Technologies for calibrating radars and tracking space objects. Some of such technologies enable a technique for calibrating a radar based on using -A- an elemental antenna (308), which can be embedded on a housing hosting a set of antenna elements, or -B- an antenna (146) mounted to a reflector. Some of such technologies enable a radar site containing a first 1D phased array (112) and a second 1D phased array (112), where the first 1D phased array sends a set of signals and receives a set of reflections based on the set of signals, and the second 1D phased array receives the set of reflections.

  • Patent number: 11475575
    Abstract: An apparatus for measuring movement characteristics of a first hair switch includes a movement rig, a camera, and a computer. The first hair switch is mountable on the movement rig. The movement rig is operable to apply a forced oscillation to the first hair switch. The camera is for capturing images of the first hair switch during movement of the first hair switch during and after application of the forced oscillation. The computer is communicably connected to the camera. The computer includes a processor for processing the images and extracting quantitative measurements of the first hair switch from the images. A filter is applied to the images to remove any stray hairs detected before subsequent analysis of the images is carried out.

  • Publication number: 20220189768
    Abstract: Silicon carbide (SiC) materials including SiC wafers and SiC boules and related methods are disclosed that provide large dimension SiC wafers with reduced crystallographic stress. Growth conditions for SiC materials include maintaining a generally convex growth surface of SiC crystals, adjusting differences in front-side to back-side thermal profiles of growing SiC crystals, supplying sufficient source flux to allow commercially viable growth rates for SiC crystals, and reducing the inclusion of contaminants or non-SiC particles in SiC source materials and corresponding SiC crystals. By forming larger dimension SiC crystals that exhibit lower crystallographic stress, overall dislocation densities that are associated with missing or additional planes of atoms may be reduced, thereby improving crystal quality and usable SiC crystal growth heights.

  • Publication number: 20220121677
    Abstract: In an embodiment, a query system sends compact code to a database service for expansion of the compact code to partially-expanded code and expanded code. In an embodiment, a hash value is generated based on the partially-expanded code and indexed in memory with the expanded code. In an embodiment, a hash value is received as part of a command and expanded code is identified based on the hash value and sent to a database service.

  • Publication number: 20210230769
    Abstract: Silicon carbide (SiC) wafers, SiC boules, and related methods are disclosed that provide improved dislocation distributions. SiC boules are provided that demonstrate reduced dislocation densities and improved dislocation uniformity across longer boule lengths. Corresponding SiC wafers include reduced total dislocation density (TDD) values and improved TDD radial uniformity. Growth conditions for SiC crystalline materials include providing source materials in oversaturated quantities where amounts of the source materials present during growth are significantly higher than what would typically be required. Such SiC crystalline materials and related methods are suitable for providing large diameter SiC boules and corresponding SiC wafers with improved crystalline quality.

  • Publication number: 20210198804
    Abstract: Silicon carbide (SiC) wafers and related methods are disclosed that include large diameter SiC wafers with wafer shape characteristics suitable for semiconductor manufacturing. Large diameter SiC wafers are disclosed that have reduced deformation related to stress and strain effects associated with forming such SiC wafers. As described herein, wafer shape and flatness characteristics may be improved by reducing crystallographic stress profiles during growth of SiC crystal boules or ingots. Wafer shape and flatness characteristics may also be improved after individual SiC wafers have been separated from corresponding SiC crystal boules. In this regard, SiC wafers and related methods are disclosed that include large diameter SiC wafers with suitable crystal quality and wafer shape characteristics including low values for wafer bow, warp, and thickness variation.

  • Publication number: 20200069884
    Abstract: An automatic injection device including a housing, a chamber with a first compartment and a second compartment, and a seal structure between the compartments. The seal structure is initially in a sealing condition that seals the first compartment from the second compartment, where the seal includes a plug and an outer sealing member. The plug is slidably movable within the outer sealing member to convert the seal structure from the sealing condition to a mixing condition by opening a path between the first compartment and the second compartment. The automatic injection device also includes a needle assembly and an activation assembly. Activation of the activation assembly causes (1) pressurization of the first compartment, (2) the seal structure to convert from the sealing condition to the mixing condition, and (3) the first and second medicament components to be mixed and forced through the needle assembly.
