  • Patent number: 11126063
    Abstract: A nonlinear optical crystal (NLO) with a phase matching angle that is corrected with a source laser beam for harmonic conversion. The source laser only has to be within a wavelength range depending on the dispersion of the crystal while the crystal is tilted to the calculated expected conversion angle of the source laser as reference. The angle correction is accomplished with a parallel kinematic motion device to which a nonlinear crystal is mounted on a platform, to determine the wavelength- and temperature-specific angle with active laser alignment and subsequent precision resurfacing. The invented phase matching angle correction is applicable to any uniaxial and biaxial NLO crystals in a wide range of wavelengths, e.g., from far ultraviolet to visible to far infrared. It is of most value for NLO crystals of large walk-off and is applicable to any prior art frequency converting architectures.

  • Patent number: 11064285
    Abstract: A tunable contact microphone is fabricated from nanometer size piezoelectric materials. The piezoelectric nanostructures are deposited on a flexible substrate or tunable resonant backplane. The backplane can be designed to vibrate at fundamental harmonic or sub-harmonic frequencies from 10 Hz to 20 KHz, corresponding to vibration frequencies of the human cranium. The backplane can be attached to a band or other material that will facilitate the attachment to the forehead, behind the ear or throat, with a preferred location being the forehead. When a person speaks, the backplane vibrates causing the nanostructures to generate electricity. The electrical signals are sent to an impedance matching preamplifier. The signal can then be sent to a communications system or fed into the microphone input of a communication system.
