Casimir A Swinger, Shui T Lai: Ophthalmic surgical laser and method. Nolte Nolte and Hunter P C, December 4, 2001: US06325792 (229 worldwide citation)

Low energy, ultra-short (femptosecond) pulsed laser radiation is applied to the patient's eye in one of a number of patterns such that the exposed ocular tissue is ablated or excised through the process of optical breakdown or photodisruption in a very controlled fashion. The process can be gen ...

Devlin M Gualtieri, Shui T Lai: Multi-layer faceted luminescent screens. Allied Corporation, Anibal Jose Cortina, Gerhard H Fuchs, December 15, 1987: US04713577 (56 worldwide citation)

A multi-layer luminescent screen includes a luminescent crystalline sublayer and a faceted overlayer. The faceted overlayer causes the emission from the screen of a greater fraction of the luminescence than would otherwise be the case. The screens, which are typically cathodoluminescent, find applic ...
