  • Publication number: 20220050181
    Abstract: A detection device with an optical device comprising at least one light source and at least one light sensitive element optically decoupled inside the detection device. A protective housing encloses the optical device. An optical cover comprising an internal surface facing the optical device and an external surface opposite to the internal surface, wherein the optical cover is transparent at the operating wavelength of the optical device, and comprises at least two separate apertures. A first aperture faces the light source and a second aperture faces the light sensitive element. The optical cover is one piece comprised of diffusing, absorbing, multilayer elements, and/or wavelength-changing elements placed between the first and second apertures in an optical decoupling zone outside the field of view of the light source and the sensitive element to avoid the stray light travelling from the light source to the sensitive element within the optical cover.

  • Publication number: 20220048814
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a partially textured glass article that includes (a) providing partially textured mother glass substrate that includes a first main surface and a second main surface which are opposed to each other; (b) irradiating the first main surface of the glass substrate with a laser to form a separating line on the first main surface that defines contour lines and extends from the first main surface to the second main surface dividing the glass article from the glass substrate, the glass article being a size smaller than the mother glass substrate; and (c) separating the partially textured glass article is separated from the mother glass substrate by the separating line. The method allows cutting a large partially textured mother glass substrate, with high precision, into smaller articles of partially textured glass at a requested size.

  • Patent number: 11214507
    Abstract: A glass sheet having a composition comprising a total iron content of 0.002-0.03% expressed in the form of Fe2O3 and in weight percentage with respect to the total weight of glass, and further satisfying the formula N*5?0.05; N*5 being defined as N*5=?{square root over ((a*5?a*0)2+(b*5?b*0)2)}, a*5 and b*5 being measured for a sheet thickness of 5 mm in transmission with illuminant D65, 10°, SCI; a*0 and b*0 being computed for a sheet thickness of 0 mm in transmission with illuminant D65, 10°, SCI. Such a glass sheet allows a color rendering of the sheet which is essentially the same whatever the view path available for an observer of the object integrating said glass sheet (when looking through its main faces or through its edges or through a zone bearing a diffusing coating).

  • Patent number: 11203549
    Abstract: The invention relates to a glass sheet having a glass composition comprising the following in weight percentage, expressed with respect to the total weight of glass: 60?SiO2?78%; 5?Na2O?20%; 0.9<K2O?12%; 4.9?Al2O3?8%; 0.4<CaO<2%; 4<MgO?12%. The invention corresponds to an easily chemically-temperable soda-silica type glass composition, which is more suited for mass production than aluminosilicate glass, and therefore is available at low cost, and with a base glass/matrix composition that is close to or very similar to compositions already used in existing mass production.
