In the examples provided herein, an apparatus has a mode converter coupled to a first waveguide to convert light propagating in a first set of spatial modes along the first waveguide to a second set of spatial modes. The apparatus also has a second waveguide coupled to the mode converter, where the second set of spatial modes propagate along the second waveguide in a first direction away from the mode converter. Further, the apparatus includes a coupler to couple a portion of the light propagating in the second set of spatial modes out of the second waveguide.

||PCT/US2015/016141||HEWLETT PACKARD ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT LP||CADER, Tahir|
An example fluid manifold is provided herein. The fluid manifold includes a first set of perimeter walls, a second set of perimeter walls, a first aperture, and a second aperture. The first set of perimeter walls to form a supply channel. The second set of perimeter walls to form a return channel. The second set of perimeter walls are adjacent to the first set of perimeter walls. The first aperture formed in the first set of perimeter walls is to transport fluid between a fluid component and the supply channel. The second aperture formed in the second set of perimeter walls is to transport fluid between the fluid component and the return channel. The first aperture and the second aperture are positioned adjacent to an electronic module.

||PCT/US2015/016284||HALLIBURTON ENERGY SERVICES, INC.||ROSS, Colby Munro|
An exemplary downhole system includes a completion string positioned within a wellbore and providing at least an upper seal bore and a downhole device that includes a sliding sleeve. A service tool is extendable within the completion string and includes a shifting tool assembly and provides a mandrel, a shifting tool coupled to the mandrel, and upper equalization seals arranged on the mandrel and sealingly engageable with the upper seal bore. The shifting tool is engageable with the sliding sleeve to move the downhole device at least partially between a closed position, where a pressure differential between a subterranean formation and an interior of the completion string is assumed by primary sealing elements of the downhole device, and an open position, where the pressure differential is assumed by at least the upper equalization seals.
