  • Publication number: 20190153316
    Abstract: Phosphor, a preparation method for the phosphor, and a light emitting device having the phosphor. The phosphor comprises an inorganic compound which at least comprises an element M, an element A, an element D, and an element R; the element M is one or two elements selected from the group consisting of Lu, La, Pr, Nd, Sm, Y, Tb, and Gd and must comprise Lu; the element A is Si and/or Ge; the element D is one or two elements selected from the group consisting of O, N, and F and must comprise N; the element R is Ce and/or Dy. Since the ionic radius of Lu3+ is smaller than that of La3+, when the inorganic compound comprises element Lu, the original ligand site would be contracted. In order to reduce lattice distortion due to the ligand site contraction, the adjacent ligand site expands, and the photochromic property is adjusted.

  • Publication number: 20180349790
    Abstract: A technique for training a machine learning model can use time-series data sampled from a population. The training includes creating a training set comprising feature vectors and corresponding labels generated using the time-series data. In some embodiments, for example, the feature vectors can include time-based features generated from the time-series data that preserves time information contained in the time-series data. The labels can be generated using data within a fixed period of time in the time-series data relative to a cut-off date. In some embodiments, the data used to create the training set can use a moving window sampling of the population to account for seasonal effects in the time-series data, where the cut-off date for generating the label varies from one sample to the next.
