  • Publication number: 20200089104
    Abstract: Vacuum-integrated photoresist-less methods and apparatuses for forming metal hardmasks can provide sub-30 nm patterning resolution. A metal-containing (e.g., metal salt or organometallic compound) film that is sensitive to a patterning agent is deposited on a semiconductor substrate. The metal-containing film is then patterned directly (i.e., without the use of a photoresist) by exposure to the patterning agent in a vacuum ambient to form the metal mask. For example, the metal-containing film is photosensitive and the patterning is conducted using sub-30 nm wavelength optical lithography, such as EUV lithography.

  • Patent number: 10591416
    Abstract: An instrument for processing and/or measuring a biological process contains a sample processing system, an excitation source, an excitation optical system, an optical sensor, and an emission optical system. The sample processing system is configured to retain a first sample holder and a second sample holder, wherein the number of sample cells is different for each sample holder or a characteristic dimension for the first sample cells is different from that of the second sample holder. The instrument also includes an excitation source temperature controller comprising a temperature sensor that is coupled to the excitation source. The temperature controller is configured to produce a first target temperature when the first sample holder is retained by the instrument and to produce a second target temperature when the second sample holder is retained by the instrument.

  • Publication number: 20200019414
    Abstract: Techniques disclosed herein permit bundled web applications to be extended at runtime. In particular, the functionality of a container application that is a bundled web application may be extended by extensions that are also bundled web applications. To enable such extensibility, the container application registers reusable portion(s) of its code in a global context during a bootstrapping sequence of the container application. Thereafter, extensions that are loaded may access and utilize the registered portion(s) of code, as if those extensions had been bundled together with the rest of the container application. In addition, extensions may be managed using scoping and/or permissions that control access to the extensions based on the container application mode that the extensions can be used with and white lists of users who are allowed to use the extensions, respectively.

  • Publication number: 20200012623
    Abstract: Embodiments of systems and methods as disclosed may provide a platform agnostic way to edit content within an enterprise. For example, a platform independent thin client editor may be provided such that this editor can be accessed by users at a variety of computing platforms across the distributed computer network of an enterprise, regardless of the platform from which the thin client editor is being accessed. Moreover, certain embodiments may provide a role based mechanism for controlling the editing of content. Embodiments of such a role based mechanism may allow one editor of a content item to designate a role associated with the content item so that only users associated with that role may be allowed to edit the content item or portion of the content item.

  • Publication number: 20200003450
    Abstract: A laminar flow diffuser with integrated lighting has a frame for supporting an air plenum and a lower housing. The air plenum receives conditioned air from a source of conditioned air. The lower housing is attached to the bottom of the plenum. An aperture plate damper installed below the top plenum regulates the flow of air from the plenum through the laminar flow diffuser. A clear or translucent the perforated diffuser face forms the outlet from the lower housing to the room below. LED strips are positioned around the inside periphery of the lower housing. A perforated reflector panel is position below the aperture plate damper and above the LED strips to spread the light from the LED strips across the perforated diffuser face.

The augmented reality interface allows users to easily correct dimensioning errors, improve dimensioning results, and guide dimensioning analysis. In one embodiment, the user may adjust/select the results via hand gesturing/positioning within the system's field of view. In another embodiment, the user may use virtual tools, enabled by hand gesturing/positioning, to adjust the results. In still another embodiment, the user may shine a light into the system's field of view to adjust the results. The augmented reality interface embraced by the present invention provides the user with an easier, more-intuitive means for interacting with dimensioning system results.
