    Patent Number:
    US 7655489 B2
    Description:

    Disclosed is a method of doping an oxide. The example method includes forming at least one of an AlGaAs oxide or an InAlP oxide on a GaAs substrate, and incorporating Erbium into the at least one AlGaAs oxide or InAlP oxide via ion implantation to form an Erbium-doped oxide layer. The example method also includes annealing the substrate and the at least one AlGaAs oxide or InAlP oxide.

    Patent Number:
    US 7922845 B2
    Description:

    An apparatus for bonding a first carbon composite to a second carbon composite through a reactant layer includes a housing, and a pair of conductive press plates electrically isolated from the housing. The press plates are adapted to position the two parts to be bonded with a reactant layer therebetween. The press plates are subjected to an electrical potential and a clamping force, sufficient to initiate a combustion reaction that creates a molten ceramic to bond together the carbon-carbon c…

    Patent Number:
    US 7908115 B2
    Description:

    Plasma sensors, systems and related methods are described. An example method for predicting an event includes providing a carrier signal across two electrodes and forming a plasma between the two electrodes. The example method also includes measuring a modulated signal from the plasma, manipulating the modulated signal to produce a value and comparing the value to a threshold. Finally, the example method includes determining the likelihood of the event based on the comparison.
