  • Publication number: 20190186192
    Abstract: A vacuum insulated glass unit includes a first and a second glass pane and a pane bonding layer. The first and second glass panes each include a vacuum chamber side opposite an outer side. The vacuum chamber side of the first glass pane includes an etched interior surface, a glass pane periphery having a periphery surface, and a plurality of glass spacers each having an end surface. The pane bonding layer is positioned between and engaged with the periphery surface of the glass pane periphery of the first glass pane and the second glass pane and couples the first glass pane to the second glass pane. Each end surface of the plurality of glass spacers and the periphery surface of the glass pane periphery are offset from the etched interior surface such that a vacuum chamber is disposed between the first and the second glass panes.

  • Publication number: 20190064647
    Abstract: A projection screen for displaying an image is disclosed. The projection screen may comprise an electrode, a plurality of cavities, an upper and lower substrate, and a hydrophobic liquid. The electrode may be disposed on a lower substrate. The hydrophobic liquid may be disposed between the upper substrate and lower substrate. The plurality of cavities may be disposed between the upper and the lower substrates. The projection screen may be associated with the electrode. The projection screen may be configured such that an application of an appropriate voltage to the electrode changes optical properties of the projection screen. Optical properties of the projection screen may comprise transparent and opaque states. Modulation between transparent and opaque states may be in such speed that a viewer sees the projection of a projector on the projection screen in the opaque state as well as sees through the projection screen in the transparent state with no perceived interruptions.

  • Patent number: 10158057
    Abstract: Packaged chip-on-board (COB) LED arrays are provided where a color conversion medium is distributed within a glass containment plate, rather than silicone, to reduce the operating temperature of the color conversion medium and avoid damage while increasing light output. A lighting device is provided comprising a chip-on-board (COB) light emitting diode (LED) light source, a light source encapsulant, a distributed color conversion medium, and a glass containment plate. The COB LED light source comprises a thermal heat sink framework and at least one LED and defines a light source encapsulant cavity in which the light source encapsulant is distributed over the LED. The glass containment plate is positioned over the light source encapsulant cavity and contains the distributed color conversion medium. The light source encapsulant is distributed over the LED at a thickness that is sufficient to encapsulate the LED and define encapsulant thermal conduction paths.

  • Patent number: 9562388
    Abstract: Methods of forming polarized panes for variable transmission windows are disclosed. The polarized panes are formed from transparent substrates that are brushed with a brushing pattern that varies continuously in a select direction over each of one or more periods. A layer of polarizable material such as POLARCOAT material can be deposited on and responds to the brushed surface by forming a polarization pattern that substantially matches the brushing pattern and thus also includes one or more periods.

  • Patent number: 9560812
    Abstract: Solar-redshift systems comprise an integral array of redshift modules, each having at least a focusing device, a target, and a quantum-dot vessel. The quantum-dot vessel contains quantum dots that emit light having an emission wavelength. The focusing device directs incident solar radiation through a focusing gap and toward the quantum-dot vessel, or into a slab waveguide and then toward the quantum-dot vessel, causing the quantum dots to emit redshifted light having the emission wavelength. The redshifted light is directed to the target, examples of which include a photovoltaic material or a living photosynthetic organism. The target has increased sensitivity or response to photons having the wavelength of the redshifted light. A trapping reflector component of the quantum-dot vessel prevents loss of redshifted light to the environment outside the solar-redshift system and allows undesirable infrared light to be removed from the system.

  • Patent number: 9213445
    Abstract: An optical touch screen that utilizes a planar transparent sheet and that is configured to determine the position of a touch event on the transparent sheet is disclosed. Light-source elements and light-sensing elements are operably disposed at a perimeter of the transparent sheet. Light is detected over lines-of-sight between the light-source elements and the light-sensing elements. Attenuated lines-of-sight due to the touch event are determined. Central lines are established based on the attenuated lines-of-sight. The locations of central-line intersections are then established. The average of the locations of the central-line intersections is then used to establish the location of the touch event.

  • Patent number: 9141230
    Abstract: In an input apparatus, an input system includes a displaceable member movable in an operational zone and a tracking surface that moves in correlation with movement of the displaceable member. An optical sensor has a field of view of at least a portion of the tracking surface during movement of the displaceable member in the operational zone and generates optical data in response to light received from the tracking surface. A processing system produces motion measures indicative of movement of the tracking surface from the optical data. In an input method, optical data is generated in response to light received from a field of view of at least a portion of a tracking surface that moves in correlation with movement of a displaceable member during movement of the displaceable member in an operational zone. Motion measures indicative of movement of the tracking surface are produced from the optical data.

  • Publication number: 20140369347
    Abstract: Embodiments of the disclosure relate to increasing radixes of digital data switches and communications switches, and related components and methods. In one embodiment, a gearbox transfers a plurality of high bandwidth signals between a communications switch and a plurality of devices. The gearbox is configured to combine one or more groups of uplink component signals into one or more respective uplink combined signals, and transmit each combined signal to the communications switch. Each uplink component signal is combined into only one of the at least one respective downlink combined signal to ensure that no individual uplink component signal is divided between multiple uplink combined signals, thereby simplifying the process of combining the uplink component signals and dividing the uplink combined signals. The communications switch is then configured to divide each uplink combined signal back into its respective uplink component signals.
