  • Patent number: 9824919
    Abstract: There is provided a method of filling a recess with a germanium-based film composed of germanium or silicon germanium in a substrate to be processed on which an insulating film having the recess formed therein is formed, the method including: forming a silicon film on a surface of the insulating film at a thickness as not to completely fill the recess; subsequently, etching the silicon film such that the silicon film remains only in a bottom portion of the recess; and subsequently, selectively growing the germanium-based film composed of germanium or silicon germanium on the silicon film remaining in the bottom portion of the recess and selectively filling the recess with the germanium-based film.

  • Patent number: 9727279
    Abstract: A storage control apparatus including a storage unit and a processor. The processor is configured to set an issuable number with respect to a logical volume on basis of a configuration of storage devices constituting the logical volume and performance of the storage devices. The issuable number is a number of requests issuable to the logical volume during a unit time period. The processor is configured to receive a request requesting access to the logical volume. The processor is configured to accumulate the received request in the storage unit. The processor is configured to issue requests accumulated in the storage unit to the logical volume while limiting a number of issued requests during the unit time period to a range of the issuable number.

  • Publication number: 20170182514
    Abstract: A method for forming a protective film is provided. In the method, a source gas containing an organic metal gas or an organic semi-metal gas is supplied to a substrate having a plurality of recessed shapes formed in a surface so as to cause the source gas to adsorb on the surface of the substrate including the plurality of recessed shapes. Then, an oxidation gas is supplied to the surface of the substrate including the plurality of recessed shapes to oxidize the source gas adsorbed on the surface of the substrate, thereby depositing an oxidation film of the organic metal or the organic semi-metal on a flat area between the plurality of recessed shapes. Supplying the source gas to the substrate and supplying the oxidation gas to the substrate are repeated at a rate in a range of 90 to 300 cycles per minute.

  • Patent number: 9343113
    Abstract: A control apparatus includes a storage unit and a processor. The storage unit is configured to store diagnosis information regarding storage apparatuses to be diagnosed. The processor is configured to receive a write request from an information processing apparatus. The write request requests to write first data into a first logical area corresponding to a first physical area of a first storage apparatus. The processor is configured to determine, on basis of the diagnosis information, whether the first storage apparatus is one of the storage apparatuses to be diagnosed. The processor is configured to cause, when it is determined that the first storage apparatus is one of the storage apparatuses to be diagnosed, the first storage apparatus to execute a write-and-verify process including: writing the first data into the first physical area, and confirming whether the first data is normally read from the first physical area.
