Patents by Inventor George Harakas

George Harakas has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 9410102
    Abstract: The invention provides fuel mixtures containing fuel oil, glycerol, glycerol impurities and non-ionic surfactants. The mixtures remain homogeneous longer and are more chemically stable than previous mixtures. Upon combustion, the mixtures generate reduced SOx, NOx and particulate matter emissions compared to residual fuels and offer improved engine performance over previous mixtures.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: March 18, 2014
    Date of Patent: August 9, 2016
    Assignee: SeaChange Group LLC
    Inventors: Scott Eaton, George Harakas

  • Patent number: 7262900
    Abstract: As robust hinge post structure for use with torsional hinged devices such as micromirrors and method of manufacturing is disclosed. The fabrication process uses a protective layer such as BARC on the bottom of the aperture used to form the hinge post structure to protect an oxide layer during an etching step. The oxide layer, in turn protects the metal layer at the bottom of the aperture. Therefore, the metal layer, the oxide layer, and the protective layer prevent the erosion and/or pitting of the bottom electrode during a cleaning process, and provide additional support to the structure.

  • Publication number: 20070045774
    Abstract: A capacitor is disclosed that is formed as part of an integrated circuit (IC) fabrication process. The capacitor generally comprises a top conductive plate, a capacitor dielectric and a bottom conductive plate that respectively comprise a patterned layer of tantalum nitride TaN, a layer of a nitride based material and a layer of patterned polysilicon.
