|20130038782||METHOD TO IMPROVE FILTER WHEEL IMAGING SYSTEM DATA CAPTURE RATE AND ADD FUNCTIONALITY THROUGH THE USE OF AN IMPROVED FILTER WHEEL DESIGN - This disclosure describes a method of improving filter wheel imaging data capture and other functionality through use of an improved filter wheel design with pie shaped filter segments, continuously rotating image capture, multiple filtered images, and easily removable and attachable filter segments.||02-14-2013|
|20110181757||Multi-spectral camera - This disclosure describes an apparatus and method of multi-spectral imaging to obtain and analyze information contained in the spectral distribution (reflection, absorption, or emission) of components within the image. The spectral information is captured in a series of images from differing spectral regions. This series of images are then combined into a composite image using re-colorization and image stabilization algorithms for display in real time. The process can be repeated continuously allowing spectral changes over time to be captured and analyzed. In the alternative one sequence of images can be captured for use as a still image.||07-28-2011|
|20110064967||Highly durable first surface silver based optical coatings and method of making the same - A highly durable, environmentally and thermally stable Silver coating for mirrors, Infrared thin-film filters, or other optical coatings having very high reflection values over a large spectral and angular range where the enhanced durability and thermal stability are achieved through the selection and layer sequence of materials, which provide good chemical and environmental protection to Silver. Of particular importance are the layers directly below the Silver, and directly above the Silver (nucleation layer and barrier layer). It is important that the materials of those two layers provide diffusion barriers for Oxygen, water vapour and other corrosive gases, and are compatible in such a way that the layer below the Silver provides a good nucleation bed for Silver assuring that Silver will grow dense and highly reflective, and in some cases, when deposited in very thin layers, highly transparent in the visible spectrum, and the material of the layer directly above the Silver layer has to be compatible with Silver in a sense that it grows dense on the top of Silver, does not reduce the reflectivity of Silver, and also provides a good nucleation layer for the next layer being deposited.||03-17-2011|
|20100277912||Boresight collimating device for wide waveband utilizing a source switching elliptical reflector - A boresight collimating device using a novel way of achieving multiple source illumination of the pin hole/reticule using one moving part, a rotating elliptical mirror, while maintaining precision alignment of the device is disclosed.||11-04-2010|
|20100187702||Method for the creation of shaped plastic lenses from flat substrates through the application of a thin film coating - This disclosure describes a method for shaping flat plastic into curved lenses during the process of depositing a thin film coating that can be applied to any application requiring a shaped lens and a thin film coating. It can be applied to any type of eyewear including but not limited to glasses, goggles, contacts and face shields as well as non-ophthalmic applications. Some application examples are 3D glasses, Laser Protection glasses and Laser Hardening glasses.||07-29-2010|
