||PCT/AU2015/050181||Dennemeyer & Associates S.A.||KOELLNER, Malte|
ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE We suggest a computer based system and method for organizing prosecution of members of a patent family in a plurality of countries. Central are computer based means for data collec- tion adapted to contain information central to the prosecution of the patent family in the dif- ferent countries. The means for data collection comprise means for storing and reading at least one feature analysis of the claims in view of the prior art documents. The feature analy- sis can be accessed by the foreign associates, the patent applicant and/or a contact person. They can all retrieve information central for the prosecution of the application in their respec- tive countries as well as write information into the data collection. In this way, all parties in- volved in the prosecution of members of the patent family in different countries can share the most relevant information necessary for the prosecution of the application. This enhances efficiency in international prosecution.

WO/2015/153208 HIGH-POWER LASER DIODE PACKAGING METHOD AND LASER DIODE MODULE||WO||08.10.2015|
||PCT/US2015/022367||IPG PHOTONICS CORPORATION||KOMISSAROV, Alexey|
A multi-layer laser diode mount is configured with a submount made from thermo- and electro- conductive material. One of the opposite surfaces of the submount supports a laser diode. The other surface of the submount faces and is spaced from a heatsinlc. The submount and heatsink are configured with respective thermal expansion coefficients ("TEC") which are different from one another. The opposite surfaces of the submount are electroplated with respective metal layers one of which is bonded to a soft solder layer. In one aspect of the disclosure, the mount is further configured with a spacer having the same TEC as that of the submount and bonded to the soft solder layer. A layer of hard solder bonds the spacer and heatsink to one another. In a further aspect of the disclosure, the electroplated metal layer in contact with the other surface of the submount is hundred- or more micron thick. The soft solder is directly bonded to the heatsink. In both aspects of the disclosure, a temperature of a p-n junction of the laser diode remains substantially constant within a 0 to 2 °C temperature range through a predetermined amount of several hundred of repeated thermo-cycles which is indicative of uncompromised integrity of the soft solder.
