  • Patent number: 11550231
    Abstract: Methods and systems are described for reducing particulate contaminants on a clamping face of a clamping structure in a lithographic system. A substrate such as a cleaning reticle is pressed against the clamping face. A temperature differential is established between the substrate and the clamping face either before or after clamping occurs to facilitate transfer of particles from the clamping face to the substrate.

  • Publication number: 20220203055
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for treating a respiratory disorder, m one aspect, include an apparatus that delivers backup breaths at a sustained timed backup rate that is a function of the patient's spontaneous respiratory rate. Other aspects include apparatus that delivers backup breaths at a rate that gradually increases from a spontaneous backup rate to a sustained timed backup rate or, alternatively, apparatus that oscillates a treatment pressure in antiphase with the patient's spontaneous respiratory efforts when a measure indicative of ventilation is greater than a threshold. Other aspects include apparatus configured to treat Cheyne-Stokes respiration by computing the treatment pressure so as to bring a measure indicative of ventilation of the patient towards a target ventilation that is dependent on the measure indicative of ventilation or, alternatively, by periodically elevating the treatment pressure to a high level for a short time.
