Abstract: A chemical feeder for use in a water circulation system includes a body, a head attached to the top of the body, and a flow passage extending through the head. A portion of the water flowing through the flow passage is diverted into the body, where the water mixes with chemical tablets contained therein. A strainer is positioned inside the body and a stand pipe connects the strainer to the flow passage. Venturi forces within the flow passage draw the chemical solution from the body and into the flow passage, where the chemical solution mixes with the water flowing therethrough. It is possible to control the concentration of the chemical solution by controlling the flow of fluid from the flow passage into the body.

More particularly, the mounting apparatus includes a mounting head and a suction-operated gripping mechanism for selectively gripping an object positioned adjacent one side of the gripping mechanism. A suction-operated attaching mechanism is also provided for selectively and removably attaching the gripping mechanism to the mounting head, whereby the gripping mechanism is removable from the mounting head and is hence replaceable. The mounting apparatus also has a viewing mechanism, including a camera, for viewing an object gripped by the gripping mechanism. The viewing mechanism is located on an opposite side of the gripping mechanism. The gripping mechanism has a light-transmitting portion positioned in such a manner that an object gripped by the gripping mechanism can be viewed by the camera through the gripping mechanism.

According to the present invention, firstly a first metal layer is formed a transparent insulating substrate. The portion of the first metal layer is then anodized, to define a gate and to form a first oxide layer on the substrate at both sides of the gate. Next, a gate insulating layer is formed on the overall substrate and a channel layer is formed on the gate insulating layer over the gate. Ohmic layers are then formed on the gate insulating layer to be overlapped with both side of the channel layer and a second metal layer is formed on the overall substrate. Thereafter, the portion of the second metal layer is anodized, to define source and drain on the ohmic layers and to form a second oxide layer. An insulating layer is then formed on the overall substrate and etched to expose the portion of the source, thereby forming a contact hole.

A spacer for oxidation barrier is then formed on the side wall of the gate electrode and the hard mask. Thereafter, gate re-oxidation process is performed using the spacer as an oxidation mask to form a re-oxidation layer on the substrate of both sides of the spacer. The spacer is formed of a nitride layer such as a SiON layer or a Si4N3 layer. Furthermore, the spacer is formed to the thickness of 50 to 300 Å.
