  • Publication number: 20230061280
    Abstract: Techniques for identifying a root cause of an operational result of a deterministic machine learning model are disclosed. A system applies a deterministic machine learning model to a set of data to generate an operational result, such as a prediction of a “fault” or “no-fault” in the system. The set of data includes signals from multiple different data sources, such as sensors. The system applies an abductive model, generated based on the deterministic machine learning model, to the operational result. The abductive model identifies a particular set of data sources that is associated with the root cause of the operational result. The system generates a human-understandable explanation for the operational result based on the identified root cause.

  • Publication number: 20230052392
    Abstract: The subject matter of this specification can be implemented in, among other things, a method, system, and/or device to receive current metrology data for an operation on a current sample in a fabrication process. The metrology data includes a current value for a parameter at each of one or more locations on the current sample. The method further includes determining a current rate of change of the parameter value for each of the one or more locations. The current rate of change is associated with the current sample. The method further includes identifying one or more violating locations each having an associated current rate of change of the parameter value that is greater than an associated reference rate of change of the parameter value, and identifying an instance of abnormality of the fabrication process based on the one or more violating locations.

  • Publication number: 20230038367
    Abstract: An optical fiber configured to improve the pump conversion efficiency of an L-band fiber amplifier which uses the multimode pump source. By directly absorbing multimode light including 915 nm, an active fiber core region co-doped with both erbium and ytterbium can provide gain to the L-band signals via stimulated emission. The unwanted C-band amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) light generate from this active fiber core region can be absorbed by another active fiber core region doped with erbium, then provides additional gain to the L-band signals. Active regions and cladding can be configured to match a given spatial mode of the optical signal. Signal-pump combiners with end-coupling or side coupling can be used.
