  • Publication number: 20070011112
    Abstract: A determining method of movement sequence and a positioning apparatus of the invention are arranged in such a manner that, in order to measure positions of plural marks as being measurement targets provided on a wafer within a shorter time, a group including executable movement sequences is generated out of a group of movement sequence candidates, each indicating a measurement order of these marks, and a movement sequence that accomplishes a movement operation between the marks within the shortest time is obtained from the group thus generated. For efficiently searching an optical system as a globally optimal solution within a shorter computation time, independently of an initial solution given, a designing method of optical system of the invention obtains the optimal solution of the optical system to be designed, using an evolutionary computation method (genetic algorithm) having a genetic operator for handling continuous values explicitly.

  • Patent number: 5934521
    Abstract: There is provided a hot melt applicator including (a) a nozzle opening, (b) a valve seat disposed upstream of the nozzle opening, (c) an empty chamber formed between the nozzle opening and the valve seat, (d) a valve body movable to the valve seat so that the valve seat is open or closed, and (e) a spring for biasing the valve body; and a pneumatically driven cylinder for driving the spring. The valve body is shaped to be a cone having an apex angle facing the nozzle opening, and the valve seat is formed with a tapered surface which is to make a contact with the cone. The tapered surface has an angle greater than the apex angle of the cone, and has a length of at least 1 mm. The hot melt applicator uses a pneumatically driven cylinder for driving the valve body to thereby compress the spring which in turn compresses the valve body, and thus, avoids the great resistance of hot melt with the spring used as a large capacity.

  • Patent number: 4672328
    Abstract: A metal partition wall is placed inside a waveguide without ridge or the like and has an aperture in which a GaAs-FET is located, so that the input and output are coupled only through this GaAs-FET. The input and output terminals of the GaAs-FET are coupled through L-shaped coupling to the waveguide. An amplifier thus constructed has a high gain and is best adapted for power, while because the metal partition wall also serves as a heat sink.

  • Patent number: 4160003
    Abstract: A method is disclosed of molding a cementitious material within a mold having a filler material bed, the configuration of which is maintained by means of suction applied through a filter disposed within the mold frame. A shield layer can be formed upon a surface of the filler material bed having air permeability so as to impart a desirable shape thereto, and the filler material is fixed under reduced pressure conditions within the mold so as to form a molding mold, whereupon the cementitious material may be charged into the mold so as to set therein. It is also possible to achieve the method of the present invention by charging a cementitious material within a molding mold having a desirable configuration, forming a filler material bed having good air permeability with or without a shield layer disposed upon the cementitious material, and preparing a hardening mold, under reduced pressure conditions, beneath the filler material bed.
