*** Electro Scientific Industries Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 24 -- Electro Scientific Industries, Portland, Ore., has been assigned a patent (8,358,671) developed by six co-inventors for a "photonic clock stabilized laser comb processing." The co-inventors are Brian W. Baird, Oregon City, Ore., Kelly J. Bruland, Portland, Ore., Clint R. Vandergiessen, Beaverton, Ore., Mark A. Unrath, Portland, Ore., Brady Nilsen, Beaverton, Ore., and Steve Swaringen, Rockwall, Texas.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Processing a workpiece with a laser includes generating laser pulses at a first pulse repetition frequency. The first pulse repetition frequency provides reference timing for coordination of a beam positioning system and one or more cooperating beam position compensation elements to align beam delivery coordinates relative to the workpiece. The method also includes, at a second pulse repetition frequency that is lower than the first pulse repetition frequency, selectively amplifying a subset of the laser pulses. The selection of the laser pulses included in the subset is based on the first pulse repetition frequency and position data received from the beam positioning system. The method further includes adjusting the beam delivery coordinates using the one or more cooperating beam position compensation elements so as to direct the amplified laser pulses to selected targets on the workpiece." The patent application was filed on July 19, 2011 (13/186,323).

*** Intel Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 24 -- Intel, Santa Clara, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,359,037) developed by Shantidev Mohanty, Santa Clara, Calif., Muthaiah Venkatachalam, Beaverton, Ore., and Shailender Timiri, Vancouver, Wash., for an adaptive sleep area.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Techniques for determining a sleep area of a sleep group in a wireless communications network based on a value of a dynamically changing communication characteristic. In various embodiments, a sleep area may be determined to reduce resource use in a wireless communication network supporting a sleep mode of a mobile station. In one embodiment, the sleep area may be determined based on a speed of a mobile station." The patent application was filed on June 30, 2008 (12/165,438).

*** FEI Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 24 -- FEI, Hillsboro, Ore., has been assigned a patent (8,358,832) developed by Richard J. Young, Beaverton, Ore., Chad Rue, Portland, Ore., and Peter D. Carleson, Hillsboro, Ore., for a "high accuracy beam placement for local area navigation." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An improved method of high accuracy beam placement for local area navigation in the field of semiconductor chip manufacturing. This invention demonstrates a method where high accuracy navigation to the site of interest within a relatively large local area (e.g. an area 200 .mu.m.times.200 .mu.m) is possible even where the stage/navigation system is not normally capable of such high accuracy navigation. The combination of large area, high-resolution scanning, digital zoom and registration of the image to an idealized coordinate system enables navigation around a local area without relying on stage movements. Once the image is acquired any sample or beam drift will not affect the alignment. Preferred embodiments thus allow accurate navigation to a site on a sample with sub-100 nm accuracy, even without a high-accuracy stage/navigation system." The patent application was filed on Oct. 31, 2011 (13/285,229). 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=8,358,832&OS=8,358,832&RS=8,358,832 Written by Arpi Sharma; edited by Anand Kumar.

*** Intel Assigned Patent for Bidirectional Power Management Techniques ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 24 -- Intel, Santa Clara, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,358,107) developed by Don J. Nguyen, Portland, Ore., for a "bidirectional power management techniques." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Power management techniques are disclosed. For instance, an apparatus may include a bidirectional voltage converter circuit, and a control module that selectively operates the bidirectional voltage converter circuit in a charging mode and a delivery mode. The charging mode converts a voltage provided by an interface (e.g., a USB interface) into a charging voltage employed by an energy storage module (e.g., a rechargeable battery). Conversely, the delivery mode converts a voltage provided by the energy storage module into a voltage employed by the interface." The patent application was filed on Dec. 31, 2007 (11/967,314). 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=8,358,107&OS=8,358,107&RS=8,358,107 Written by Arpi Sharma; edited by Anand Kumar.
