Harold W Tomlinson Jr, Jerome J Tiemann: Light imaging in a scattering medium, using ultrasonic probing and speckle image differencing. General Electric Company, Marvin Snyder, May 18, 1993: US05212667 (134 worldwide citation)

Coherent light is projected through a scattering medium. The light emerging from the medium is a superposition of a multitude of scattered wavelets, each of which represents a specific scattering path. These wavelets are projected onto a diffuse reflecting surface (the viewing plane of a two-dimensi ...

Jerome J Tiemann: System for processing video signals. General Electric Company, Julius J Zaskalicky, James C Davis Jr, Marvin Snyder, March 1, 1983: US04375650 (111 worldwide citation)

A video processing system in which each field of image data is divided into rows and columns of blocks of picture elements. The number of blocks utilized is large enough so that when each block is considered to be a picture element, the blocks provide a reasonable raster for the peripheral vision as ...

Jerome J Tiemann: Telemetry system with a sending station using recursive filter for bandwidth limiting. General Electric Company, Allen L Limberg, James C Davis Jr, Marvin Snyder, January 23, 1990: US04896152 (93 worldwide citation)

Before subsampling them for transmission, telemetry data are bandwidth-limited by IIR filtering at the sending station of a telemetry system. The transmitted filtered telemetry data have attendant phase distortion that is compensated for by FIR filtering at the receiving station of the system, so as ...

Carl M Penney, Robert H Webb, Jerome J Tiemann, Keith P Thompson: Spatially resolved objective autorefractometer. General Electric Company, James R McDaniel, Paul R Webb II, November 2, 1993: US05258791 (89 worldwide citation)

A spatially resolved map of the eye's refractive characteristics are provided by measuring the eye's refractive characteristics on a point-by-point basis across the anterior surface of the eye. This spatially resolved refraction data may be obtained subjectively by providing a reference pattern and ...

Frank L Lederman, Jerome J Tiemann: Digital rectilinear ultrasonic imaging system. General Electric Company, Donald R Campbell, Joseph T Cohen, Marvin Snyder, November 28, 1978: US04127034 (56 worldwide citation)

A B-scan ultrasonic imager produces a rectilinear image and has a linear transducer array with only one switch per element. Individual elements or overlapping transmit subarrays are selected sequentially to generate pulses of ultra-sound. Received echo signals are sequentially sent down a long shift ...

Jerome J Tiemann: Wide dynamic range delta sigma analog-to-digital converter with precise gain tracking. General Electric Company, Marvin Snyder, August 31, 1993: US05241310 (53 worldwide citation)

A delta sigma analog-to-digital architecture assures that all channels in a multi-element receiver follow the same compression and/or time-gain variation curve. This is accomplished by varying the reference voltage as a function of time so that the full scale range and associated quantization noise ...

Jerome J Tiemann, Steven L Garverick: Delta sigma analog-to-digital converter with increased dynamic range. General Electric Company, Marvin Snyder, February 16, 1993: US05187482 (50 worldwide citation)

A delta sigma analog-to-digital (A/D) converter includes a digitally-controlled multiplying digital-to-analog converter (MDAC) in a feedback configuration. The MDAC is driven by a digital signal obtained from the output (or an intermediate output) of the A/D converter. An incremental feedback quantu ...
