Patent
Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc. | Date: 2017-01-31

A solution for packaging an optoelectronic device by aligning an optical element with respect to the package is provided. After initial placement of the optical element on the device package, an emitted light pattern can be measured and compared to a target light pattern. Subsequently, the position of the optical element can be adjusted. The emitted light pattern can be repeatedly compared to the target light pattern until the emitted light pattern is within an acceptable range of error and the optical element can be secured to the device package.

A solution for evaluating a sample gas for a presence of a trace gas, such as ozone, is provided. The solution uses an ultraviolet source and an ultraviolet detector mounted in a chamber. The chamber can include reflecting walls and/or structures configured to guide ultraviolet light. A computer system can operate the ultraviolet source in a high power pulse mode and acquire data corresponding to an intensity of the ultraviolet radiation detected by the ultraviolet detector while a sample gas is present in the chamber. Using the data, the computer system can determine a presence and/or an amount of the trace gas in the sample gas.

An optical modulator is provided. The optical modulator can include a wave guide layer made of an electro-optical material with two or more electrodes directly contacting the wave guide layer. Each electrode can include an associated optical wave guide region, which is located within the wave guide layer. Each optical wave guide region is aligned with a lateral location corresponding to an electric field peak, which can be generated during operation of the optical modulator in a circuit, associated with the corresponding electrode. One or more voltage sources in a circuit can be operated to generate an electric field peak at one or more of the electrodes.

Patent
Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc. | Date: 2017-02-02

An approach for curing ultraviolet sensitive polymer materials (e.g., polymer inks, coatings, and adhesives) using ultraviolet radiation is disclosed. The ultraviolet sensitive polymer materials curing can utilize ultraviolet light at different wavelength emissions arranged in a random, mixed or sequential arrangement. In one embodiment, an ultraviolet light C (UV-C) radiation emitter having a set of UV-C sources that emit UV-C radiation at a predetermined UV-C duration and intensity operate in conjunction with an ultraviolet light B (UV-B) radiation emitter having a set of UV-B sources configured to emit UV-B radiation at a predetermined UV-B duration and intensity and/or an ultraviolet light A (UV-A) radiation emitter having a set of UV-A sources configured to emit UV-A radiation at a predetermined UV-A duration and intensity, to cure the ultraviolet sensitive polymer materials.

A semiconductor structure for use in fabricating a semiconductor device having improved light propagation is provided. The structure includes at least one layer transparent to radiation having a target wavelength relevant to operation of the semiconductor device. During operation of the semiconductor device, radiation of the target wavelength enters the transparent layer through a first side and exits the transparent layer through a second side. At least one of the first side or the second side comprises a profiled surface. The profiled surface includes a plurality of vacancies fabricated in the material of the layer. Each vacancy comprises side walls configured for at least partial diffusive scattering of the radiation of the target wavelength.


Patent

A solution for designing and/or fabricating a structure including a quantum well and an adjacent barrier is provided. A target band discontinuity between the quantum well and the adjacent barrier is selected to coincide with an activation energy of a dopant for the quantum well and/or barrier. For example, a target valence band discontinuity can be selected such that a dopant energy level of a dopant in the adjacent barrier coincides with a valence energy band edge for the quantum well and/or a ground state energy for free carriers in a valence energy band for the quantum well. Additionally, a target doping level for the quantum well and/or adjacent barrier can be selected to facilitate a real space transfer of holes across the barrier. The quantum well and the adjacent barrier can be formed such that the actual band discontinuity and/or actual doping level(s) correspond to the relevant target(s).


A device including one or more layers with lateral regions configured to facilitate the transmission of radiation through the layer and lateral regions configured to facilitate current flow through the layer is provided. The layer can comprise a short period superlattice, which includes barriers alternating with wells. In this case, the barriers can include both transparent regions, which are configured to reduce an amount of radiation that is absorbed in the layer, and higher conductive regions, which are configured to keep the voltage drop across the layer within a desired range.

A system capable of detecting and/or sterilizing surface(s) of an object using ultraviolet radiation is provided. The system can include a disinfection chamber and/or handheld ultraviolet unit, which includes ultraviolet sources for inducing fluorescence in a contaminant and/or sterilizing a surface of an object. The object can comprise a protective suit, which is worn by a user and also can include ultraviolet sources for disinfecting air prior to the air entering the protective suit. The system can be implemented as a multi-tiered system for protecting the user and others from exposure to the contaminant and sterilizing the protective suit after exposure to an environment including the contaminant.
