  • Patent number: 10113228
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a method for controlling a semiconductor deposition operation. The method includes (i) identifying a first target lifetime in a physical vapor deposition (PVD) system; (ii) inputting the first target lifetime into a processor; (iii) outputting, by the processor, a plurality of first operation parameters according to a plurality of compensation curves; and (iv) performing the first operation parameters in the PVD system. The first operation parameters includes, but not limited to, an RF power tuning, a DC voltage tuning, a target to chamber pedestal spacing tuning, an AC bias tuning, an impedance tuning, a reactive gas flow tuning, an inert gas flow tuning, a chamber pedestal temperature tuning, or a combination thereof.

  • Patent number: 10015980
    Abstract: A method includes a step of identifying a subject in need of diet modification; and administering a first diet to the subject for a first time period. The first diet provides 4.5 to 7 kilocalories per pound of subject for a first day and 3 to 5 kilocalories per pound of subject per day for a second to fifth day of the first diet. The first diet includes less than 30 g of sugar on the first day; less than 20 g of sugar on the second to fifth days; less than 28 g of proteins on the first day; less than 18 g of proteins on days the second to fifth days; 20 to 30 grams of monounsaturated fats on the first day; 10 to 15 grams of monounsaturated fats on the second to fifth days; and between 6 and 10 grams of polyunsaturated fats on the first day.
