  • Patent number: 10591216
    Abstract: A solidifying device is for solidifying a substrate which includes a middle and two side portions. The thermostability of the middle portion is greater than that of the side portions. The solidifying device includes a housing, a heating member, a temperature control air-floating member and a conveyor. The housing defines a working space. The heating member is in the working space. The substrate has a heat receiving surface facing the heating member. The temperature control air-floating member is in the working space and below the heating member. The conveyor is for transporting the substrate into the working space and between the temperature control air-floating member and the heating member. The heating member is for providing heat to the substrate. The temperature control air-floating member is for supplying air towards the substrate to allow the substrate to float in the working space and form a high-temperature and two low-temperature areas.

  • Patent number: 9957607
    Abstract: An evaporation method in this disclosure is adapted for performing an evaporation process upon a surface of an evaporation target substrate. In an embodiment, an evaporation source plate is arranged to be heated by a heater so as to evaporate an evaporation material to its gaseous state, and then enable the gaseous evaporation material to travel passing through holes of a shutter device and thus spread toward the surface of the evaporation target substrate for depositing a film. Moreover, the evaporation method uses a transmission device for controlling the opening/closing of the holes, and there is a heating area formed at a position between the shutter device and the evaporation source plate for allowing the evaporation source plate, the plural holes, the heating area, the evaporation material and the heater to be arranged parallel to one another from the top to bottom.

    Abstract: A long linear-type microwave plasma source using a variably-reduced-height rectangular waveguide as the plasma reactor has been developed. Microwave power is fed from the both sides of the waveguide and is coupled into plasma through a long slot cut on the broad side of the waveguide. The reduced height of the waveguide is variable in order to control the coupling between microwave and plasma so that the plasma uniformity can remain a high quality when extending the length of the linear-type plasma source.
