  • Publication number: 20220352068
    Abstract: IC interconnect structures including subtractively patterned features. Feature ends may be defined through multiple patterning of multiple cap materials for reduced misregistration. Subtractively patterned features may be lines integrated with damascene vias or with subtractively patterned vias, or may be vias integrated with damascene lines or with subtractively patterned lines. Subtractively patterned vias may be deposited as part of a planar metal layer and defined currently with interconnect lines. Subtractively patterned features may be integrated with air gap isolation structures. Subtractively patterned features may be include a barrier material on the bottom, top, or sidewall. A bottom barrier of a subtractively patterned features may be deposited with an area selective technique to be absent from an underlying interconnect feature. A barrier of a subtractively patterned feature may comprise graphene or a chalcogenide of a metal in the feature or in a seed layer.

  • Patent number: 10881547
    Abstract: A dental orthotic strut having at least one multi-axis rotable joint connecting the strut to either a maxillary and/or mandibular retainer attached to the teeth. Jaw advancement may be accomplished by periodically replacing the strut with a new strut having a slightly longer minimum length, thereby advancing the resting position of the closed jaw. The rotable joint or joints allow greater freedom of movement and comfort when the jaw is opened in a non-sagittal plane. A plurality of strut pairs having a same length, but with progressively longer sets of strut pairs is generally supplied, so that left and right struts can be progressively replaced with longer struts over time.

  • Publication number: 20190151137
    Abstract: An anti-obstructive airway dental orthotic (10) having multiple fixed jaw displacement adjustments is provided. A maxillary retainer (100) is connected to a mandibular retainer (200) by a strut having a length variable between a fixed minimum and a fixed maximum length. The maxillary retainer (100) has two pivot points (120, 125) such that the strut (300) may be moved from the second pivot point (125) to the first pivot point (120) to effect a progressive adjustment of mandibular advance. Additionally, the maxillary retainer (100) may be provided with a spacing area (140) that creates a minimum vertical separation between a cusp of the user's maxillary premolar and a cusp of the user's opposing mandibular premolar. Other fenestrations and cut-outs in the device (10) may also be provided.

  • Patent number: 8875713
    Abstract: An anti-obstructive airway dental orthotic is described. The orthotic includes a maxillary retainer and a mandibular retainer releasably attaching to a plurality of teeth of a wearer. The retainers are attached by at least one strut, either variable in length or of a plurality of lengths, which exert a forward force on the lower jaw, tending to advance the mandible relative to the maxilla. This advancement of the lower jaw promotes a less obstructed airway in the wearer, while fenestrations in the retainers may allow for greater comfort and tongue movement.
