  • Publication number: 20130330599
    Abstract: A feed-through, for example a battery feed-through for a lithium-ion battery or a lithium ion accumulator, has at least one base body which has at least one opening through which at least one conductor, for example a pin-shaped conductor, embedded in a glass material is guided. The base body contains a low melting material, for example a light metal, such as aluminum, magnesium, AlSiC, an aluminum alloy, a magnesium alloy, titanium, titanium alloy or steel, in particular special steel, stainless steel or tool steel. The glass material consists of the following in mole percent: 35-50% P2O5, for example 39-48%; 0-14% Al2O3, for example 2-12%; 2-10% B2O3, for example 4-8%; 0-30% Na2O, for example 0-20%; 0-20% Li2O, for example 12-20%, wherein M is K, Cs or Rb; 0-10% PbO, for example 0-9%; 0-45% Li2O, for example 0-40% or 17-40%; 0-20% BaO, for example 5-20%; 0-10% Bi2O3, for example 1-5% or 2-5%.

  • Publication number: 20130330604
    Abstract: A feed-through, in particular a feed-through which passes through a housing component of a housing, for example a battery housing, such as a battery cell housing. The housing component includes at least one opening through which at least one conductor, for example an essentially pin-shaped conductor, is guided. The pin-shaped conductor is at least partially surrounded by an insulator, for example made of a glass or a glass ceramic material. The at least one conductor connection, for example of the essentially pin-shaped conductor and/or of the housing component with the insulator, which is a glass or a glass ceramic material, is formed, the connection being an ultrasonic welding.

  • Patent number: 7495223
    Abstract: A photomultiplier tube, a photomultiplier tube unit, and a performance-improved radiation detector for increasing a fixing area of a side tube in a faceplate while increasing an effective sensitive area of the faceplate. In the photomultiplier tube, a side face (3c) of the faceplate (3) protrudes outward from an outer side wall (2b) of a metal side tube (2), so that a light receiving area for receiving light passing through a light receiving face (3d) of the faceplate (3) is increased. The overhanging structure of the faceplate (3) is conceived based on a glass refractive index. The overhanging structure is aimed to receive light as much as possible which has not been received before. When the metal side tube (2) is fused to the glass faceplate (3), a fusing method is adopted due to joint between glass and metal. Joint operation between the faceplate (3) and the side tube (2) is reliably ensured. Accordingly, the overhanging structure of the faceplate (3) is effective.

  • Patent number: 6510708
    Abstract: Processes for the production of a smooth translucent glass sheet comprise grinding at least one face of a clear glass sheet using a conventional abrasive such as sand. Preferably the clear glass sheet is a sheet of clear float glass. The process may be carried out using a conventional glass grinding and polishing facility operated in a manner that the ground sheet is ground but not polished. The product preferably has a satin finish and a roughness Ra of less than 5.0 &mgr;M and is sufficiently translucent as to be useful in privacy glazing. The ground glass products may have a haze value of from 80 to 90% and an Ra value of from 1.0 &mgr;M to 3.0 &mgr;M are believed to be novel.

  • Patent number: 6192709
    Abstract: A method of embedding a magnetically attractable member (25) in a ceramic material (1) and a system therefor wherein there are provided a magnetically attractable member and a ceramic member capable of being placed in a molten state. The magnetically attractable member is disposed over the ceramic member and the ceramic member is placed in a molten state. The magnetically attractable member is then disposed in the molten ceramic member by magnetic attraction and the molten ceramic member is then hardened around the magnetically attractable member. The magnetically attractable member is taken from the class consisting of Alloy 42 and Kovar. The ceramic member is preferably a glass. The ceramic member is preferably disposed on a semiconductor package and the magnetically attractable member is preferably at least a portion of a semiconductor lead frame.
