04/20/2021: New patent awarded: P.-A. Blanche, R. S. Ketchum, and P. E. Alcaraz, “Transposition of a Measurement of a Radar Cross-section From an RF-domain to an Optical Domain With Phase Retrieval“, Patent No: US 10,983,207. Link
11/20/2020: In this newly published international patent application, we describe how to use a curved waveguide as a combiner for head up display (HUD) or augmented reality (AR) glasses. Today, most systems use a flat waveguide that does not integrate well into their environment. With a curve waveguide the AR glasses can have a better fit and the HUD can be integrated into the windshield or the canopy. Link
11/03/2020: In this new patent application US 2019/0278011 A1, we describe how a thick hologram can “enhance the daytime detection of objects“, by selecting the incident light according to the distance from the source. This can be used for the detection of satellite and space debris during daytime. Link
09/22/2020: The patent about “Transposition of a measurement of a radar cross-section from an RF-domain to an optical domain” has been granted by the USPTO, number 10,782,401. Link
This patent is about the measurement of the radar cross section of complex structures using near-IR or visible light instead of radio frequency. See the project page for more information.
05/28/2020: The secrecy order has been lifted, and all the claims accepted for the patent application US20200158855 about “Transposition of a measurement of a radar cross-section from an RF-domain to an optical domain “. Link
This patent is about the measurement of the RCS of complex structures using near-IR or visible light instead of radio frequency. See the project page for more information.
04/11/2019: P.-A. Blanche and B. Lynn: “Diffraction-Based light beam scanner” Patent US 2019/0107711 A1. Link
This patent is about how to use a spatial light modulator to steer a light beam and compensate for the chromatic aberration in a monostatic LIDAR configuration.
