The wire is connected to the signal generator. The wire is configured to emit photons in response to receiving the electrical signal. The photons have a frequency based on the amplitude of the electrical signal.06-13-2013
20110309269Photonic Generator of Ultra-Wide Band Millimeter Wave - A photonic generator is provided. The photonic generator uses ultra-wide band millimeter wave (MMW) for generating a high-power ultra-broad band white noise. Thus, the present disclosure can be used for failure detection of instantaneous all-band device, noise detection of instantaneous all-band amplifier and mixer, wide-band cipher transmission, pseudo-random bit generation, ADC dithering of analog-digital converter, saturation power test of wide-band optical communicator, system noise detection of MMW receiver, and gain and phase detection of MMW interferometer.12-22-2011
20130187064PARTICLE BEAM SYSTEM INCLUDING A SUPPLY OF PROCESS GAS TO A PROCESSING LOCATION - A system for supplying a process gas to a processing location of a particle beam system is disclosed. The system for supplying the processing gas includes a gas reservoir, a gas conduit, a pipe located close to the processing location, a valve between the gas conduit and the pipe, and a controller configured to open and to close the valve to switch the system from a first mode of operation in which process gas is not supplied to the processing location to a second mode of operation in which process gas is supplied to the processing location. The controller can alternately open and close the valve in cycles. Each cycle can include a first duration in which the valve is open and a second duration in which the valve is closed. The ratio of the first duration to the second duration can be changed.07-25-2013
20130207003INTERNAL LIGHT FOR HAND GUN - Disclosed is a light assembly for placement inside a handgun, with the battery of the light assembly replacing the recoil spring guide of the handgun. The recoil spring of the handgun fits over the battery of the disclosed lighting assembly. The light provides a primary or alternative light source for the user of a handgun, and may provide white light or infrared light. The light assembly disclosed may be mounted inside a handgun without making permanent modifications to the handgun.08-15-2013
