  • Patent number: 12009211
    Abstract: Methods are provided herein for forming spacers on a patterned substrate. A self-aligned multiple patterning (SAMP) process is utilized for patterning structures, spacers formed adjacent mandrels, on a substrate. In one embodiment, a novel approach of etching titanium oxide (TiO2) spacers is provided. Highly anisotropic etching of the spacer along with a selective top deposition is provided. In one embodiment, an inductively coupled plasma (ICP) etch tool is utilized. The etching process may be achieved as a one-step etching process. More particularly, a protective layer may be selectively formed on the top of the spacer to protect the mandrel as well as minimize the difference of the etching rates of the spacer top and the spacer bottom. In one embodiment, the techniques may be utilized to etch TiO2 spacers formed along amorphous silicon mandrels using an ICP etch tool utilizing a one-step etch process.

  • Publication number: 20240173169
    Abstract: The present technology is directed to adjustable shunting systems for draining fluid from a first body region to a second body region, and can include a shunting element, an aperture in the shunting element, and an actuator for selectively controlling the flow of fluid through the aperture. The actuator can include a gating element moveable between a first position in which it does not substantially interfere with fluid flow through the aperture and a second position in which it at least partially blocks fluid flow through the aperture, and a shape memory actuation element configured to move the gating element from the first position to and/or toward the second position when actuated. The system can further include a friction element configured to frictionally engage the gating element to releasably retain the gating element at and/or proximate the second position following actuation of the shape memory actuation element.
