Concept Search - What can I type?
For a concept search, you can enter phrases, sentences, or full paragraphs in English. For example, copy and paste the abstract of a patent application or paragraphs from an article.
Concept search eliminates the need for complex Boolean syntax to inform retrieval. Our Semantic Gist engine uses advanced cognitive semantic analysis to extract the meaning of data. This reduces the chances of missing valuable information, that may result from traditional keyword searching.

The following discussion presents how modifying the alignment layer can
create performance enhancements across all categories of Cholesteric Displays.
The treatment of a alignment
coating on a cholesteric display in order to produce many desired optical
effects is clearly presented in ”Super High Brightness Reflective Cholesteric
Display” [A. Khan, X.-Y. Huang, R. Armbruster, F. Nicholson, N. Miller, B.
Wall, and J. W. Doane, Society for Information Display 2001 International
Symposium Digest of Technical Papers, 32,
460 (2001)] (patent pending).
Indeed the use of a polarizer with this approach allows one to create
enhancements in innumerous ways. Working in either the scattered or reflective
mode, in the visible or infrared, with long or short pitch materials, polymer
stabilized or polymer free, displays can be made that give many different
degrees of optical performance and bi-stability in the reflective, scattered,
trans-reflective, and backlight modes.
