  • Patent number: 8352886
    Abstract: A method for the reproducible determination of the positions of structures (3) on a mask (2) is disclosed. A pellicle frame (30) is firmly attached to the mask (2). A theoretical model of the bending of the mask (2) with the firmly attached pellicle frame (30) is calculated, wherein material properties of the mask (2), of the pellicle frame (30), and of the attaching means between the pellicle frame (30) and the mask (2) are taken into account in the calculation of the bending of the mask (2). For the calculation of the bending of the mask (2) its contact with three support points is considered. The positions of the structures (3) on the mask (2) are measured with a metrology tool (1). The measured positions of each structure are corrected with the theoretical model of the bending of the mask at the position of the respectively measured structure.

  • Patent number: 8337156
    Abstract: The invention relates to aeronautical engineering, in particular to methods of flight due to creating of forces on air propellers, namely using thrust vectoring of direction and amount of force created by air propellers of opposite rotation with the axis, mainly in the direction of flight, in the expanded range of speeds, from 50 m/s to high near-sonic speed of flight. The invention may be applied for horizontal flight and maneuvering in flight on vertical take-off aircrafts using rotation of main rotors from the vertical stand of rotor axes during the take-off to almost horizontal position of rotor axes in horizontal flight, thus both the rotation of rotors and the change of position of an aircraft together with its rotors may be applied, and it may be also used in the horizontal take-off aircrafts with almost horizontal position of axes during the horizontal flight, including the planes with airscrew propellers.

  • Patent number: 8288945
    Abstract: A method for fabrication of substrate having a nano-scale surface roughness is presented. The method comprises: patterning a surface of a substrate to create an array of spaced-apart regions of a light sensitive material; applying a controllable etching to the patterned surface, said controllable etching being of a predetermined duration selected so as to form a pattern with nano-scale features; and removing the light sensitive material, thereby creating a structure with the nano-scale surface roughness. Silanizing such nano-scale roughness surface with hydrophobic molecules results in the creation of super-hydrophobic properties characterized by both a large contact angle and a large tilting angle. Also, deposition of a photo-active material on the nano-scale roughness surface results in a photocathode with enhanced photoemission yield. This method also provides for fabrication of a photocathode insensitive to polarization of incident light.
