  • Patent number: 5641466
    Abstract: A mixture of carbon nanotubes and impurity carbon materials, which include carbon nanoparticles and may possibly include amorphous carbon, is purified into carbon nanotubes of high purity by utilizing a significant difference in oxidizability between the nanotubes and the nanoparticles. The mixture is pulverized and heated in the presence of an oxidizing agent at a temperature in the range from 600.degree. to 1000.degree. C. until the impurity carbon materials are oxidized and dissipated into gas phase. The nanotubes remain almost unoxidized except for loss of some lengths from the tube tips. It is suitable to perform the heating in air or oxygen.

  • Patent number: 5636212
    Abstract: In an ATM network using a burst-level band-width allocation, a source terminal reserves, before a burst transmission, band-widths according to a peak rate of the burst and then sends the burst therethrough. When the transmission is finished, the band-widths are released. Where there exists a link to which the peak rate is not assigned, a non-reserving acknowledgement signal (NACK) is sent to the terminal and the reserved band-widths are released. On receiving the NACK, the terminal allocates a band-width with peak rate lower than that of the first request after a back-off time has elapsed, thereby minimizing the probability of a blocked transmission. The source terminal declares a minimum band-width together with the peak rate (maximum band-width) in the band-width request operation. Each node allocates the peak rate when the remaining band-width of a link controlled by the node is sufficient to allocate the peak rate.

  • Patent number: 5612470
    Abstract: Growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) receptor binding has been characterized using a unique binding assay utilizing iodinated GHRH probes. Photoaffinity GHRH probes have been constructed which allow for photolabeling and characterization of the receptor. In addition, high affinity biotinylated GHRH analogs have been constructed. Solubilization of GHRH-R/GHRH complexes and extraction of specifically bound GHRH using a mild detergent solution, followed by affinity chromotography, leads to a substantially purified GHRH-R isolate. Electrophoretic treatment of the GHRH-R isolate produces GHRH-R of sufficient purity to conduct sequencing of the receptor. Cloning of a gene encoding for polypeptides (protein or fragments thereof) having GHRH-R activity is accomplished using a bacterial host, and the cloned gene is expressed in a mammalian cell line.

Then, sidewall insulating layers are formed on both sides of the gate electrode, and, after that, high concentration inpurity diffusion regions are formed within the semiconductor substrate on both sides of the sidewall insulating layers. Then, one of the sidewall insulating layers is removed simulataneously with formation of contact holes in an interlayer formed on on the entire surface. Finally, impurities are implanted with a mask of the interlayer, to enlarge one of the high concentration impurity diffusion regions.
