  • Patent number: 11780045
    Abstract: A method of chemical mechanical polishing includes bringing a substrate having a conductive layer disposed over a semiconductor wafer into contact with a polishing pad, generating relative motion between the substrate and the polishing pad, monitoring the substrate with an in-situ electromagnetic induction monitoring system as the conductive layer is polished to generate a sequence of signal values that depend on a thickness of the conductive layer, determining a sequence of thickness values for the conductive layer based on the sequence of signal values, and at least partially compensating for a contribution of conductivity of the semiconductor wafer to the signal values.

  • Publication number: 20230310453
    Abstract: Methods are provided for extracting one or more neutrophil serine proteases (NSPs), e.g., neutrophil elastase (NE), proteinase 3 (PR3), cathepsin G (CatG), neutrophil serine protease 4 (NSP4), or a combination thereof, from a sample comprising white blood cells (WBCs) obtained from a subject. The extraction methods feature the use of nonionic surfactants and two or more cycles of repeated lysis of WBCs and their residuals. Also provided are methods for treating dipeptidyl peptidase 1 (DPP1)-mediated conditions in a patient with compositions comprising certain N-(1-cyano-2-phenylethyl)-1,4-oxazepane-2-carboxamide compounds of formula (I), including pharmaceutically acceptable salts thereof, that reversibly inhibit (DPP1) activity. The treatment methods provided herein use the concentration of active NSPs extracted from a patient's WBC sample as a biomarker to guide the selection of, or adjustment to, an effective dosage of the compounds of formula (I).

  • Publication number: 20230201876
    Abstract: A method of fabricating a transducer includes embedding signal flexes and ground-return flexes inside a backing block. The method includes forming stack configurations with a height in elevation and a width perpendicular to the height. The forming includes: dicing a piezoelectric layer in the elevation into rows (separating the piezoelectric layer into portions); defining a beam pattern for the transducer by aligning the portions on the backing block; and forming gaps in-between each piezoelectric layer portion and each adjacently aligned piezoelectric layer portion. The method includes forming stacks by bonding one or more matching layers to the piezoelectric layer portions by utilizing a conductive surface of a first matching layer of the one or more matching layers. The method also includes forming cavities in the one or more matching layers in elevation, dicing the stacks along an elevation direction into multiple elements, and filling the cavities with a material.
