  • Patent number: 9640888
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention relate to a primary contact or primary body comprising of a primary material with a propensity to corrode. A location on a surface of the primary body is an active location and functions to interface with a secondary body. The active location has a first surface and an oppositely disposed second surface. An anode material is applied to the second surface adjacent to the active location on the first surface. The primary body is exposed to a corrosive material. The anode material functions to divert a galvanic corrosive medium from the active location to the applied anode material.

  • Patent number: 9575213
    Abstract: The problem of the present invention is to overcome drawbacks of conventional optical filters such as near-infrared cut filters and to provide an optical filter which generates little scatted light even during light absorption and has excellent transmittance property. The optical filter of the present invention is characterized by containing a squarylium-based compound and a compound which absorbs or quenches fluorescence of the squarylium-based compound. The optical filter of the present invention preferably contains a near-infrared absorbing dye containing a squarylium compound (A) and at least one compound (B) selected from the group consisting of a phthalocyanine-based compound (B-1) and a cyanine-based compound (B-2).

  • Patent number: 9558724
    Abstract: A guitar pick comprises a substrate layer and a diamond film layer or coating. The diamond film layer is composed of chemical vapor deposited diamond, or diamond-like carbon. The diamond film coating or layer is applied to the substrate in one or more layers under intense heat and low pressure. The substrate layer can be composed of at least one of steel, stainless steel, molybdenum, titanium, tungsten, copper, aluminum, tantalum and alloys thereof, silicon, silicon carbide, tungsten carbide, quartz, or sapphire. Coating of the diamond film layer may be achieved by plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD), ion beam deposition (IBD), plasma-assisted deposition, cathodic arc deposition, hot filament chemical vapor deposition (HFCVD), or microwave plasma-assisted chemical vapor deposition (MPCVD).
