  • Patent number: 10714127
    Abstract: A perpendicular magnetic recording writer has a main pole (MP) with a first flux guiding (FG) device in a write gap between the MP trailing side and a trailing shield, and a second FG device in the leading gap (LG) and each side gap (SG). The SG angle is reduced to 15° to 45° to enable conformal and more uniform FG device layers to be formed in the SG and LG. As a result, the MP shape and write field are more reproducible. To compensate for a thinner MP thickness at the air bearing surface that results from maintaining the track width at a shallower SG angle, an upper MP tip may be formed on the lower MP tip thereby generating a hexagonal shape for the combined MP tip. In this case, the second FG device conforms to the shape of the two upper MP tip sides and trailing side.

  • Patent number: 10646348
    Abstract: An orthopedic implant in the form of a femoral component of a knee endoprosthesis has sliding tribological surfaces formed by inserts of a ceramic material based on zirconium dioxide or aluminum oxide, which are inserted and transition flushly into a metallic base body. The inserts are connected to the base body by a silicate ceramic solder, which is solidified or hardened in a ceramic firing, and by a silicate glass solder. Discharge channels in the metallic base body help to produce a homogeneous glass solder layer and to avoid an excessively intense heat treatment of the solder connection, which could lead to fractures in the titanium oxide layer of the base body. Because a coating of a softer glass solder may be additionally provided on the sliding tribological surfaces of the inserts, the abrasive wear is further reduced and the service life is further increased.

  • Patent number: 10372012
    Abstract: A mechanical chameleon through dynamic real-time plasmonic tuning, the external surface of which is covered by plasmonic cells is provided. Plasmonic cells, based on the combination of bimetallic nanodot arrays and electrochemical bias, use the electrochemical method elctrodepositing and stripping Ag shells on plasmonic Au nanodomes and then we achieve the reversible full color plasmonic cells/display. Plasmonic cells, under the control of circuits and sensors, make mechanical chameleon automatically change the color of its own when it's walking to the corresponding background color and always keeping the same color with the color background. This mechanical chameleon through dynamic real-time plasmonic tuning can capture and simulate the entire color-patterns of the environment and then drive the color-changing process in individual cells, fully merging the mechanical chameleon into the surroundings, which makes this technology is readily approachable.
