  • Patent number: 10526700
    Abstract: The present inventors have conceived of a multi-stage process gas delivery system for use in a substrate processing apparatus. In certain implementations, a first process gas may first be delivered to a substrate in a substrate processing chamber. A second process gas may be delivered, at a later time, to the substrate to aid in the even dosing of the substrate. Delivery of the first process gas and the second process gas may cease at the same time or may cease at separate times.

  • Publication number: 20190381026
    Abstract: In accordance with the present invention, the immunoregulatory activity of low doses of P4N was investigated. Unlike previously described antitumor drugs, low dose P4N, in doses of about 1 to 10 mg/kg, or at concentrations of about 10 to 100 nM, was surprisingly found to contribute to humoral immunity by raising the titers and activities of autoantibodies against GRP78 and F1F0 ATP synthase on the surface of CT26 cells, and inducing B cell proliferation and differentiation of plasma cells. Methods for inducing B cell proliferation, inducing BAFF stimulated B cell proliferation, and suppressing or inhibition growth of a neoplasia are provided.

  • Patent number: 10422030
    Abstract: In an apparatus and method for multi mask alignment, a carrier is provided that includes apertures therethrough. For each aperture, a combination frame and shadow mask that includes alignment features is positioned on spacers supported by the carrier with the shadow mask of the combination in coarse alignment with the aperture. Next, each combination frame and shadow mask is moved to a position spaced from the spacers whereupon the alignment system, under the control of a controller, individually aligns each combination frame and shadow mask to align the alignment features of the combination with reference alignment features associated with the combination. Each combination frame and shadow mask is then returned to a position on the spacers whereafter each combination frame and shadow mask is secured to the carrier. In an example, all of the combination frames and shadow masks can be aligned simultaneously.

  • Publication number: 20190281555
    Abstract: Method and apparatus for controlling the power consumption of a wireless device are provided. A wireless device may include a configurable radio frequency (RF) front-end that may be configured to use fewer hardware stages and/or processing steps to reduce power consumption based at least in part on a signal quality, detected interference, or system information associated with a received RF signal. In some implementations, the configurable RF front-end may be configured to consume less power while receiving strong RF signals and configured to consume more power while receiving weak RF signals.

  • Patent number: 10367876
    Abstract: Systems and methods monitor a system including a remote desktop, a trusted mobile instance, and a delivery handler. The delivery handler can determine if the system is overloaded and to take the appropriate measures to maintain a negotiated minimal QoS and adapt as necessary when the conditions vary. Additionally, the systems and method can address security issues by separating privileges that are typically bundled together in conventional systems, and by applying isolation mechanisms to exposed areas of the system.

  • Publication number: 20190189445
    Abstract: Embodiments are disclosed for processing microelectronic workpieces to apply stress engineering to self-aligned multi-patterning (SAMP) processes. The disclosed processing methods utilize stress in a substrate in a SAMP process to improve resulting pattern parameters. Initially, a high stress film is deposited on the frontside and the backside of the substrate, and the high stress film provides biaxial stress to the substrate due to the deposition process for the high stress film. Next, a SAMP process is performed to form spacers in a spacer pattern. This spacer pattern is then transferred to underlying layers to form a patterned structure. The high stress film provides axial stress in at least one direction along a portion of the patterned structure during the pattern transfer thereby improving resulting pattern formation.

  • Publication number: 20190182407
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a fluid-optical encryption system and a method thereof. The fluid-optical encryption system uses a fluid surface that changes topology over time to modulate the wave front of an electromagnetic signal in an encryption, decryption, authentication or other communication system. The electromagnetic signal can be pulsed or continuous, coherent or non-coherent, and can be optical or in another wavelength range such as micrometer or infrared. The information carrying signal is either transmitted through the fluid system or reflected off the surface of the fluid system. The fluid system time dependent change can be induced by mechanical vibration in the fluid container, distorting the fluid container, acoustic waves through the fluid, or by surface tension changes at the boundary of the fluid cause by electrowetting or electrostatic effects. The fluid surface can exhibit patterns that oscillate or change periodically, or change in a chaotic manner.

  • Publication number: 20180004546
    Abstract: A keyboard for a remote device on a client device is provided. In a method of the present invention, an indication is received that a keyboard is needed for the remote device by a client device communicably coupled to the remote device. In response to receiving the indication, the client device opens a soft keyboard. Text received on the soft keyboard is transmitted text received via the soft keyboard on the client device to the remote device. Thus, a user can utilize a preferred keyboard on their own device while accessing applications on a remote device.
