Abstract: A metal organic chemical vapor deposition apparatus comprising a source ampule, a liquid micro-pump, a vaporizer equipped with a solvent supply means, and a reactor. A reactant dissolved in a solvent in the source ampule is transferred to the vaporizer by the liquid micro-pump. A sufficient amount of the solvent is additionally fed to the vaporizer by the solvent supply means, concurrently with the transfer, and vaporized along with the reactants. After being vaporized in the vaporizer, the reactant is injected to the reactor by carrier gas and deposited on a semiconductor substrate to form a high dielectric thin film. By virtue of the additional supplied solvent, the recondensation of the reactant in the vaporizer, which is attributed to the separation of the solvent from the reactant, can be prevented in the vaporizer and in the transfer line between the vaporizer and the reactor.
Abstract: A built-up camshaft having a carrying tube and working members is manufactured by attaching the carrying tube to the working members using a tool. The working members have a mounting opening where a plurality of longitudinal "V" shaped splines are located. The working members are placed on the tube and the tube is expanded mechanically using a tool by applying pressure from the inside until the splines of the working members are pressed into the body of the tube. The tube is expanded by the tool so as to form at least three oval-shaped protrusions on the outer surface of the tube. The protrusions are uniformly distributed around the circumference of the tube and are at least wide enough to engage two adjacent splines.

Abstract: A stress test apparatus and method for a semiconductor memory device with a plurality of memory cell arrays. The stress test apparatus comprises a plurality of plate terminals connected to one another, each of the plate terminals being connected to a plurality of storage capacitors, first and second switching elements connected in common to the plate terminals, a plate voltage generator connected to the first switching element, a stress signal generator connected to the second switching element, and a switching control signal generator for generating a switching control signal to control the first and second switching elements. According to the present invention, a cell plate voltage is applied and varied to stress the storage capacitors without driving word lines. Therefore, the storage capacitor stressing operation is simply performed, the stress test time is reduced and the cost is cut down.
Abstract: A medical device such as a stent, surgical staple, bone anchoring device or bone fixation device, intended to be deployed within the body, composes a shape memory alloy (SMA) portion with an austenitic and unaustenitic state with different memorized configurations in each of these states. The SMA which is initially in an initial configuration in which it can be placed into position within the body, can be mechanically deformed into an operational configuration in which it remains deployed within the body.

Abstract: Sound absorber comprising a large number of tubular resonators (10) whose sound orifices A.sub.o are adjacent to a common surface A and are distributed in such a way that the interaction zones A.sub.w of these individual sound orifices A.sub.o are distributed as far as possible over the whole surface and at the same time do not substantially overlap. Preferred embodiments consist of extruded plastic shaped parts (16) or of metallic shaped parts (7, 9) which are firmly connected to one another and have suitable mechanical rigidity and acoustic hardness.
Abstract: N-vinyllactam derivatives protected at the 3-position are provided and represented by the following formula (I). These are polymerized into homo- and copolymers for use in microlithography of semiconductor manufacture. The polymers are used as a photoresist material suitable for a deep UV process so that pictures of high sensitivity and high resolution can be obtained. In addition, ultrafine circuits can be formed and an exceptional improvement in pattern formation can be accomplished through the use of the photoresist of the invention.
Abstract: A central solar receiver comprising a tubular housing with a central axis, a radiation admitting aperture and an absorber chamber having an outer wall, two oppositely located ends, an inner-wall-forming substantially tubular transparent window co-axial with the tubular housing. The solar receiver further comprises injection means near a first of the oppositely located ends and at least one egress opening means near a second of the oppositely located ends. The injection means are capable of injecting into the absorber chamber a multicomponent fluid mixture comprising at least one radiation absorbing component and are so designed that the fluid mixture is injected into the absorber chamber adjacent and essentially tangentially to the outer wall, whereby contact between the mixture and the window is reduced. The egress opening enables the egress of the fluid mixture from the absorber chamber.

Abstract: The present disclosure relates to novel dosage forms, drug delivery regimens, methods and pharmaceutical compositions which optimize the therapeutic effects of active therapeutic substances through the application of the concept of uneven dosing.
Abstract: The invention is a monohull water-borne craft comprising a hull having a main portion and an opposed pair of stabilizers, the stabilizers being positioned on opposite sides of the main hull portion and being disposed closely adjacent to the main hull portion. The stabilizers may be elongate and arranged with their long axes extending along the main hull portion to form pods. The stabilizers may be integral with the main hull portion or may be movable, e.g. to enable variable geometry to give active buoyancy and/or ballast and/or assistance in steering or stability. The stabilizers may carry propulsion means, fuel tanks, active ballast tanks or the like. The stabilizers may thus be single function e.g. to provide buoyancy, ballast or to house equipment such as propulsion means or may be multifunctional to combine one or more of such functions. The craft may be a power boat or a sail craft and may be convertible between power and sail.
Abstract: An arm rest for a vehicle seat includes a support bracket to be fixed to a seat back frame of the vehicle seat, the support bracket being formed with a groove at a rear edge side on an upper portion thereof; an arm rest main body rotatably supported to the support bracket; and an fitting pin to be provided so as to project from the seat back frame, the fitting pin is fitted into the groove formed in the support bracket. The fitting pin is moved backward together with the seat back frame along the groove of the support bracket when an impact stress in a direction where the seat back is inclined backwardly is applied to the seat back.

Abstract: A power line noise prevention circuit for a semiconductor memory device which can suppress noises on supply and ground voltage lines with no conventional degradation in operation speed when internal circuits consuming a large current amount are sequentially operated. When a plurality of data output buffers output high data at the same time, the power line noise prevention circuit applies a high voltage to the supply voltage line for the operation time to prevent a supply voltage from being reduced in level. To the contrary, when a plurality of data output buffers output low data at the same time, the power line noise prevention circuit applies a substrate voltage to the ground voltage line for the operation time to prevent a ground voltage from being increased in level.
