||PCT/US2014/018328||EMPIRE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT LLC||MILLAR, Benjamin, William|
Technologies pertaining to a chip with a refractive index gradient, including fabrication thereof, are generally described. The refractive index gradient may be formed by creating atomic scale inclusions throughout a thickness of the chip by inducing nanoporosity into the chip, dissociating and diffusing oxygen into the chip, or performing chemical vapor deposition. One or more integrated circuit (IC) components and optical transceiver devices may be provided by mounting, growing, or etching the IC components and optical transceiver devices at a surface of the chip. The optical transceiver devices may be configured to transmit and/or receive an optical communication signal to and/or from at least one IC component or other optical transceiver device via an optical communication path within the thickness of the chip. The optical communication path may include a direction and distance, within the thickness of the chip, based on the refractive index gradient and angle of incidence.

Technologies are generally described for methods and systems to assign threads in a multi-core processor. In an example, a method to assign threads in a multi-core processor may include determining data relating to memory controllers fetching data in response to cache misses experienced by a first core and a second core. Threads may be assigned to cores based on the number of cache misses processed by respective memory controllers. Methods may further include determining that a thread is latency-bound or bandwidth-bound. Threads may be assigned to cores based on the determination of the thread as latency-bound or bandwidth-bound. In response to the assignment of the threads to the cores, data for the thread may be stored in the assigned cores.

WO/2015/130307 INTEGRATED COMPUTATIONAL ELEMENT USING INCIDENCE ANGLE MANIPULATION||WO||03.09.2015|
||PCT/US2014/019475||HALLIBURTON ENERGY SERVICES INC.||PELLETIER, Michael T.|
Multi-characteristic detection is achieved by altering the light incidence angle of a single Integrated Computational Element ("ICE") used in an optical computing device. The optical computing device manipulates the incidence angle of light interacting with the ICE, thereby enabling the detection of multiple sample characteristics. The effect of manipulating the light incidence angle is that the effective light path length through the ICE is altered, thus shifting the transmission spectral profile of the ICE.
