Abstract

Described herein are articles with scattering regions comprising a plurality of microstructures that are elongated in a first direction so as to preferentially scatter light in one or more directions. Each of the plurality of microstructures comprises a feature size measured in a second direction that is perpendicular to the first direction. The feature size varies as function of position within the microstructure to achieve favorable transmission haze performance while also suppressing scattering of light at relatively high scattering angles relative to specular to improve display washout from external light sources. A two-dimensional power spectral density of the first major surface comprises a peak region that is entirely disposed on one side of an axis associated with scattering directions that are parallel with the first direction.

Abstract

Articles and methods for temporary bonding of substrates are described. The articles include a photo-release layer to enable reversal of the temporary bonding upon exposure of the photo-release layer to light to separate the substrates. The method includes plasma treatment of the photo-release layer to increase the bonding energy. Higher bonding energy allows for processing of the article with greater mechanical force before separation. Plasma treatment also allows for temporary bonding with a thinner photo-release layer and a photo-release layer with low total thickness variation (TTV). Once separated from the article, a processed substrate can be bonded to other substrates.

Abstract

A driver circuit, suitable for an optical system, that includes at least one substrate having an adjustable optical characteristic, includes an input voltage source, an inverter, and a controller. The input voltage source is configured to supply adjustable input voltage. The inverter is electrically coupled to the input voltage source and configured to generate an alternating current (AC) output voltage according to the input voltage, an amplitude of the AC output voltage correlating to a level of the input voltage. The controller is electrically coupled to the inverter and is configured to control the duty ratio of the AC output voltage when the adjustable input voltage is equal to or lower than a threshold.

Abstract

A method of removing metal-containing contaminants from a surface of a glass syringe includes contacting the surface of the glass syringe with an aqueous treating medium comprising fluoride ions, at least one acid, or both. The metal-containing contaminants are coupled to the surface of the glass syringe and are present at a concentration of greater than or equal to 50 ppb on the surface prior to contacting with the aqueous treating medium, and contacting the aqueous treating medium with the surface for a contact time reduces the concentration of the metal-containing contaminants on the surface of the glass syringe by greater than or equal to 50%. Methods of making glass syringes can include forming the glass syringe having at least a barrel and a syringe tip, and then removing metal-containing contaminants from surfaces thereof by contacting with the aqueous treating medium.

Abstract

An interlayer for a lithium battery having a solid-state electrolyte is disclosed. The Interlay includes an electrospun polymeric framework and a polymer electrolyte membrane that includes a lithium salt, a cross-linking solvent, and a reaction product of a UV curable monomer. The polymer electrolyte membrane is distributed throughout the electrospun polymeric framework and present at both sides of the electrospun polymeric framework. Distribution of the polymer electrolyte membrane throughout the electrospun polymeric framework mechanically secures the polymer electrolyte membrane to the electrospun polymeric framework. The polymer electrolyte membrane is viscoelastic and can conform to contours in a sintered ceramic solid-state electrolyte to improve contact between a lithium anode layer and a sintered ceramic solid-state electrolyte of a solid-state lithium battery. The improved contact between anode and ceramic solid-state electrolyte improves the electrical performance of the solid-state lithium batteries.

The bonding process may include transmitting a pulsed laser to irradiate an interface between two components, which may include two optical components or an optical component and a mounting component. The pulsed laser may generate one or more bonding locations where the components are in relatively close contact with each other, which may secure the components together via at least partial melting of material at one or more surfaces of the components. In some examples, the pulsed laser may be scanned over the bonding locations some quantity of times and/or using a pattern to achieve the bond. In some aspects, one or more absorbing layers may be added to the components.
