Additionally, an all-fiber isolator using highly rare-earth oxide doped fibers is disclosed." The patent application was filed on May 12, 2010 (12/778,712). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,374,468&OS=8,374,468&RS=8,374,468 Written by Arpi Sharma; edited by Anand Kumar.



*** Raytheon Assigned Patent for Iris Recognition Using Hyper-spectral Signatures ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 15 -- Raytheon, Waltham, Mass., has been assigned a patent (8,374,404) developed by Darin S. Williams, Tucson, Ariz., and Kent P. Pflibsen, Tucson, Ariz., for an "iris recognition using hyper-spectral signatures." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "The spectral diversity of the iris can be used as a unique biometric identifier. By careful selection of a number of spectral bands, four or more, the hyper-spectral signature derived from data contained in those bands can distinguish color signatures that are not visually distinguishable in RGB color space to uniquely identify a person. Classification of hyper-spectral signatures requires less spatial resolution than the classification of texture signatures, maybe an order of magnitude or more. This reduces the size of the sensor aperture required at a given range." The patent application was filed on Feb. 13, 2009 (12/370,695). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,374,404&OS=8,374,404&RS=8,374,404 Written by Arpi Sharma; edited by Anand Kumar.

*** International Business Machines Assigned Patent for Automatic Unthread to Secure Tape from Sticking to the Head ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 15 -- International Business Machines, Armonk, N.Y., has been assigned a patent (8,373,941) developed by Josephine Faith Bayang, Tucson, Ariz., Ernest Gale Stewart, Tucson, Ariz., and Eiji Ogura, Kanagawa-ken, Japan, for an "automatic unthread to secure tape from sticking to the head." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A system and method for automatically unthreading a tape. The system and method determine whether the drive being at the stop state could cause the tape sticking condition in future after a defined dwell time (e.g., 20 minutes). The tape sticking tends to increase with time and humidity. Moreover, it is known that worn tape is stickier than new tape. With a plurality of attempts (e.g., four attempts) of moving tape (e.g., every 5 minutes), the drive is able to identify whether the tape needs to be unthreaded. Such a system allows a tape drive to handle the tape in safety at severe condition for the sticking tape, and minimize the penalty for the response to the command in normal condition." The patent application was filed on July 23, 2008 (12/177,931). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,373,941&OS=8,373,941&RS=8,373,941 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.

*** Microchip Technology Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 15 -- Microchip Technology, Chandler, Ariz., has been assigned a patent (8,373,357) developed by five co-inventors for a "modulator module in an integrated circuit device." The co-inventors are Zeke R. Lundstrum, Chandler, Ariz., Keith Curtis, Gilbert, Ariz., Sean Steedman, Phoenix, Vivien Delport, Chandler, Ariz., and Jerrold S. Zdenek, Maricopa, Ariz.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An integrated circuit device has a modulator module that provides a modulation signal comprising one frequency keyed on and off, or alternating between two or more different frequencies or phases that are selected based upon a modulator signal. The one or more frequencies or phases may be selected from a plurality of frequency sources. Switching the one frequency on or off, or between the at least two different frequencies or phases may be synchronized with one or both of the two or more different frequencies or phases so that "glitches" or spurs are not introduced into the modulation signal. The integrated circuit device may also comprise a processor, memory, digital logic and input-output. Frequency sources may be internal to the digital device or external. The modulator signal may comprise serial data generated from the digital logic and/or processor of the digital device." The patent application was filed on Jan. 20, 2010 (12/690,258). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,373,357&OS=8,373,357&RS=8,373,357 Written by Arpi Sharma; edited by Anand Kumar.
