  • Patent number: 10691019
    Abstract: A pattern-forming method includes forming a base pattern having recessed portions on a front face side of a substrate directly or via other layer. The recessed portions of the base pattern are filled with a first composition to form a filler layer. Phase separation of the filler layer is allowed to form a plurality of phases of the filler layer. A part of the plurality of phases of the filler layer is removed to form a miniaturized pattern. The forming of the base pattern includes: forming a resist pattern on the front face side of the substrate; forming a layer of a second polymer on lateral faces of the resist pattern; and forming a layer of a third polymer that differs from the second polymer on a surface of the substrate or on a surface of the other layer.

  • Patent number: 10459893
    Abstract: The purpose of the present invention is, in a file storage, to shorten an access response time to shared data. When a file storage apparatus receives a command for a specific manipulation of a file system, a specific apparatus determines, based on a state of the file system and a manipulation history, whether or not an unapplied manipulation affects a target of the specific manipulation, the unapplied manipulation being a manipulation which has been previously executed by another file storage apparatus among a plurality of file storage apparatuses and which has not been applied to the file system. When it is determined that the unapplied manipulation affects the target of the specific manipulation, the file storage apparatus applies the unapplied manipulation to the file system, executes the specific manipulation on the file system, and transmits, to a cloud storage apparatus, manipulation information which represents the specific manipulation.
