  • Patent number: 10289979
    Abstract: In an approach to determining an introduction of a user in a meeting, one or more computer processors retrieve a document containing information associated with a user, wherein the document includes one or more fragments describing the user. The one or more computer processors determine an audience of a meeting associated with the user. The one or more computer processors determine a description of the meeting. The one or more computer processors prioritize one or more of the one or more fragments, based, at least in part, on the audience of the meeting and on the description of the meeting. The one or more computer processors select one or more of the one or more fragments for the introduction of the user in the meeting, based, at least in part, on the prioritization of the one or more fragments.

  • Patent number: 10110726
    Abstract: A private message can be delivered by a computer system to a user in an environment, using a display in the environment, a user device, and sensors in the space. The device is detected and connected to a system once it enters a space. A private message is directed to the device and it is received by the system, which notifies the device that the message has been received. The user can then look up at a device to display the message and the system can determine where the user is looking, in order to deliver the message using rapid serial visual presentation to the user on the display device.

  • Patent number: 10095918
    Abstract: A method for interpreting interpersonal communication includes monitoring a first interaction between two or more individuals using a set of monitoring devices including a camera, a microphone, and the like. A culture and personality type of at least one individual is identified based on the monitored first interaction. First cultural/personality profile information specific to the identified culture and personality type is retrieved from a database of cultural/personality profile information. A second interaction between the two or more individuals is monitored using the set of monitoring devices. A first facial expression, gesture, vocal intonation, or indication of emotional state derived from biometric data of the at least one individual is identified based on the monitored second interaction. The identified first expression is interpreted using the first cultural/personality profile information. The interpretation of the identified first expression is communicated to a user.

  • Patent number: 8537444
    Abstract: A system and method and computer program product for exposing a photoresist film with patterns of finer resolution than can physically be projected onto the film in an ordinary image formed at the same wavelength. A hologram structure containing a set of resolvable spatial frequencies is first formed above the photoresist film. An illuminating wavefront containing a second set of resolvable spatial frequencies is projected through the hologram, forming a new set of transmitted spatial frequencies that expose the photoresist. The transmitted spatial frequencies include sum frequencies of higher frequency than is present in the hologram or illuminating wavefront, increasing the resolution of the exposing pattern. Designing lithographic masks further includes fabricating the hologram and projecting the illuminating wavefront. A simple personalization based on Talbot fringes and plasmonic interference is further performed.

  • Patent number: 7855045
    Abstract: A topcoat material for applying on top of a photoresist material is disclosed. The topcoat material comprises at least one solvent and a polymer which has a dissolution rate of at least 3000 ?/second in aqueous alkaline developer. The polymer contains a hexafluoroalcohol monomer unit comprising one of the following two structures: wherein n is an integer. The topcoat material may be used in lithography processes, wherein the topcoat material is applied on a photoresist layer. The topcoat material is preferably insoluble in water, and is therefore particularly useful in immersion lithography techniques using water as the imaging medium.

  • Patent number: 7807335
    Abstract: A method of forming an image in a photoresist layer. The method includes, providing a substrate; forming the photoresist layer over the substrate; forming a contamination gettering topcoat layer over the photoresist layer, the contamination gettering topcoat layer including one or more polymers and one or more cation complexing agents; exposing the photoresist layer to actinic radiation through a photomask having opaque and clear regions, the opaque regions blocking the actinic radiation and the clear regions being transparent to the actinic radiation, the actinic radiation changing the chemical composition of regions of the photoresist layer exposed to the radiation forming exposed and unexposed regions in the photoresist layer; and removing either the exposed regions of the photoresist layer or the unexposed regions of the photoresist layer. The contamination gettering topcoat layer includes one or more polymers, one or more cation complexing agents and a casting solvent.

  • Publication number: 20100003605
    Abstract: A novel system and method and computer program product for exposing a photoresist film with patterns of finer resolution than can physically be projected onto the film in an ordinary image formed at the same wavelength. A hologram structure containing a set of resolvable spatial frequencies is first formed above the photoresist film. If necessary the photoresist is then sensitized. An illuminating wavefront containing a second set of resolvable spatial frequencies is projected through the hologram, forming a new set of transmitted spatial frequencies that expose the photoresist. The transmitted spatial frequencies include sum frequencies of higher frequency than is present in the hologram or illuminating wavefront, increasing the resolution of the exposing pattern. These high spatial frequency transmitted waves can be evanescent, or they can propagate at a steeper obliquity in a higher index medium than is possible in a projected image.
