20090244542 - Micro integrated planar optical waveguide type spr sensor: An integrated optical waveguide type surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensor having an optical waveguide with a corresponding SPR sensing area, photodetectors, and wavelength tunable laser or any kind of external tunable laser source/coupler formed on a substrate. In an embodiment, the laser is a wavelength tunable laser and optionally, the... Agent: Law Offices Of Brian S Steinberger
20090244543 - Human-readable, bi-state environmental sensors based on micro-mechanical membranes: An environmental sensing device includes an interferometric modulator which permanently actuates, in a visually-detectable manner, in response to being exposed to a predetermined environmental threshold or condition. The device can include a reactive layer, coating, or proof mass disposed on a movable member of the interferometric modulator. The reactive layer,... Agent: Knobbe, Martens, Olson & Bear, LLP
20090244544 - Unidirectional crow gyroscope: An optical waveguide gyroscope includes at least one optical coupler configured to receive a first optical signal at a first port, to transmit a second optical signal to a second port, and to transmit a third optical signal to a third port. The optical waveguide gyroscope further includes a plurality... Agent: Knobbe Martens Olson & Bear LLP
20090244545 - Optical rotary adaptor and optical tomographic imaging apparatus using the same: An optical rotary adapter is featured by including: a fixed side optical fiber which is fixedly supported by a fixed sleeve and which has an end surface inclined with respect to a plane perpendicular to the optical axis of the optical fiber; a fixed side collimator lens which is arranged... Agent: Sughrue Mion, PLLC
20090244546 - Compensation table generation method, apparatus and computer program product, and tomography image processing apparatus using the same: A compensation table for compensating interference signal obtained by OCT measurement is generated easily. When a reflection body interference signal is obtained by OCT measurement, the reflection body interference signal is compensated by a compensation table (Formula (1)) to obtain an evaluation output signal. Then, a spectrum of the evaluation... Agent: Sughrue Mion, PLLC
20090244547 - Optical tomographic imaging system, tomographic image acquiring method, and optical tomographic image forming method: This optical tomographic imaging system comprises an optical path length adjustor configured to set a first reference position of a measurement depth direction to an inner edge of a measurement range by adjusting an optical path length of a reference light, and an optical path length switching unit having a... Agent: Sughrue Mion, PLLC
20090244549 - Contact displacement meter: There is provided a contact displacement meter in which the size of the housing can be miniaturized as much as possible without lowering the measurement accuracy of a displacement. Light emitted by a light emitting element is converted to parallel light by a lens, and then is deflected to a... Agent: Kilyk & Bowersox, P.l.l.c.
20090244548 - Level sensor: A level sensor, i.e., a light receiving section (11X) having multiple light receiving elements (PDX1 to PDXn) arranged in parallel. In the level sensor, each two adjacent output terminals of the light receiving elements (PDX1 to PDXn) are connected by one of resistors (RX1 to RXn).... Agent: Dickstein Shapiro LLP
20090244550 - Method for controlling a machine tool and apparatus therefor: Relative movement in X, Y and Z axis directions is made between a main spindle and a table 6 for application in a machine tool in which a work is machined. An emitting element 12 for irradiating laser beam 11 and a photosensitive element 13 are disposed on the table... Agent: Westerman, Hattori, Daniels & Adrian, LLP
20090244552 - Method for forming and measuring the thickness of a coating: A coating thickness monitor is disclosed that includes at least one radiation source directed at least a portion of the substrate. The coating thickness monitor includes at least one probe for capturing at least a portion of the radiation reflected and refracted by the coating on the substrate. The captured... Agent: Kilpatrick Stockton LLP
20090244551 - Sensor apparatus for detecting an overhang on the load of a carrier device: A sensor apparatus for detecting an overhang on a load of a carrier device, having a sensor arrangement with at least one transmitter and a receiver and also an electronic unit for control purposes. According to the invention, the sensor arrangement senses two regions of the carrier device with a... Agent: Burr & BrownPrevious industry: Photocopying
