  • Publication number: 20200382159
    Abstract: Some embodiments include a system, method, and computer program product for managing the Ultra Wideband (UWB) systems, especially when the UWB system is collocated with another wireless system (e.g., WiFi) to transmit and/or receive UWB signals with an occupied bandwidth (OBW) that satisfies a UWB OBW standard (e.g., a UWB OBW>=500 MHz.) In some embodiments a TailBit signal (e.g., a periodic signal at a selected frequency) is added to a UWB packet to generate frequency components at the selected frequency that enables the power spectrum of the TailBit UWB signal to satisfy the UWB OBW standard. In some embodiments an altered code sequence is used to generate an altered spread signal, where the altered code sequence reduces or removes a frequency component peak near DC frequency of the power spectrum of an altered UWB signal, resulting in altered UWB OBW that satisfies the UWB OBW standard.

  • Publication number: 20200303725
    Abstract: An immobilized selenium body, made from carbon and selenium and optionally sulfur, makes selenium more stable, requiring a higher temperature or an increase in kinetic energy for selenium to escape from the immobilized selenium body and enter a gas system, as compared to selenium alone. Immobilized selenium localized in a carbon skeleton can be utilized in a rechargeable battery. Immobilization of the selenium can impart compression stress on both the carbon skeleton and the selenium. Such compression stress enhances the electrical conductivity in the carbon skeleton and among the selenium particles and creates an interface for electrons to be delivered and or harvested in use of the battery. A rechargeable battery made from immobilized selenium can be charged or discharged at a faster rate over conventional batteries and can demonstrate excellent cycling stability.
