  • Publication number: 20210113529
    Abstract: Provided is a pharmaceutical for preventing or treating an ophthalmic disease associated with intraocular neovascularization and/or increased intraocular vascular permeability. The inventors of the present invention have made investigations on a pharmaceutical for preventing or treating an ophthalmic disease associated with intraocular neovascularization and/or increased intraocular vascular permeability, and have confirmed that a selective S1P receptor agonist having agonist activity at an S1P1 receptor has an intraocular neovascularization-reducing action and an intraocular vascular permeability-reducing action, thus completing the present invention.

  • Publication number: 20190064678
    Abstract: An exposure apparatus includes a projection system having an optical element; a substrate stage which has a holder configured to hold a substrate and which is movable below the projection system; a first nozzle member having a liquid supply port; a second nozzle member having a liquid recovery port which is arranged such that the liquid recovery port faces an upper surface of the substrate during exposure; and a driving system having a motor, which moves the second nozzle member in a direction substantially perpendicular to an optical axis of the optical element. The second nozzle member is moved based on a movement condition of the substrate stage. The substrate is exposed via liquid covering a portion of the upper surface of the substrate. The liquid supply via the liquid supply port is performed parallel to the liquid recovery via the liquid recovery port.

  • Publication number: 20180299789
    Abstract: An exposure apparatus includes a projection system, a stage having a holder on which a substrate is held, a supply system having a supply flow path via which liquid is supplied to form an immersion area under the projection system, a first recovery system having a recovery port via which the supplied liquid is recovered from above the stage, a second recovery system having a recovery flow path provided in the stage via which the supplied liquid is recovered, and a third recovery system which has a path and which removes liquid in the supply flow path using the path. The substrate is exposed via the liquid immersion area covering a portion of an upper surface of the substrate with exposure light from the projection system.

  • Patent number: 10081108
    Abstract: A carrier system is provided with a wafer stage which holds a mounted wafer and is also movable along an XY plane, a chuck unit which holds the wafer from above in a non-contact manner above a predetermined position and is vertically movable, and a plurality of vertical movement pins, which can support from below the wafer held by the chuck unit on the wafer stage when the wafer stage is positioned at the predetermined position above and can also move vertically. Then, flatness of the wafer is measured by a Z position detection system, and based on the measurement results, the chuck unit and the vertical movement pins that hold (support) the wafer are independently driven.
