A touch screen assembly including a display, infra-red light emitters, photo diodes, a transparent frame including an exposed upper edge along its perimeter, and internally reflective facets for directing light emitted by the emitters along light paths that travel upward through one side of the frame, over the display screen, downward through the opposite side of the frame, and onto the photo diodes, and a processor operative to identify a location of an object touching the display, based on amounts of light detected by photo diodes when light emitted by light emitters is blocked along its light path by the object, and to recognize the object touching an outer wall of the frame, based on amounts of light detected by activated photo diodes when light emitted by activated emitters is absorbed along its light path by the object at the outer wall, thereby providing touch sensitivity to the frame itself.. .

Retaining ring having inner surfaces with facets


A retaining ring comprises a generally annular body. The body comprises a top surface, a bottom surface, an outer surface connected to the top surface at an outer top perimeter and the bottom surface at an outer bottom perimeter, and an inner surface connected to the top surface at an inner top perimeter and the bottom surface at an inner bottom perimeter.

Facet-free strained silicon transistor


The presence of a facet or a void in an epitaxially grown crystal indicates that crystal growth has been interrupted by defects or by certain material boundaries. Faceting can be suppressed during epitaxial growth of silicon compounds that form source and drain regions of strained silicon transistors.

Sustained learning flow process


This invention is about a sustained learning flow process making e-learning and advertising more efficient and effective by enabling the personalization narratives to be delivered to the user that combine e-learning and advertising content. The invention makes itself aware of the user and his or her needs, skills, interests, and many other aspects to present the user with advertisements and e-learning content blended together and delivered to the user according to the multiple narrative flows, telling the user a multi-faceted story which is relevant to both e-learning goals and advertising preferences, as opposed to traditonal online ads devoid of personalized e-learning content.

Optimizing faceted classification


In an approach to faceted classification, a computer receives a search query. The computer creates a first table of facet value ranges, based on the search query.

Optical scanning unit and image forming apparatus


An optical scanning unit includes a rotatable multi-faceted mirror having a plurality of faces reflecting light flux emitted from a light source to scan a scanning area in a main scanning direction. A width of the light flux striking the rotatable multi-faceted mirror is smaller than a length of a face of the rotatable multi-faceted mirror.
