  • Publication number: 20220238307
    Abstract: Systems and methods for compensating for radio frequency (RF) power loss are described. One of the methods includes conducting a no plasma test to determine a resistance associated with an output of an impedance matching circuit. After conducting the no plasma test, a substrate is processed in a plasma chamber. During processing of the substrate, power loss associated with the output of the impedance matching circuit is determined. The power loss is used to determine an amount of power to be delivered by an RF generator. The amount of power delivered is adjusted until the power loss is stabilized. The stabilization of the power loss facilitates uniform process of the substrate and additional substrates in the plasma chamber.

  • Publication number: 20080277766
    Abstract: An improved structure for supporting a microcalorimeter device is disclosed. The structure comprises a substrate with superconducting wiring elements disposed on a surface of the substrate. A membrane layer is suspended above the wiring elements and the substrate surface by a tab element, and a microcalorimeter is disposed on top of the membrane layer. The tab and the membrane layer reside in a common plane, and the membrane layer comprises a material that can be applied and cured at low temperatures (e.g. 350 degrees Celsius or less), so as to have minimal affect on the superconductive wiring elements. The in-plane tab/membrane structure has improved reliability when subject to thermal cycling associated with cryogenic temperatures. A method for forming the structure is also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 7247603
    Abstract: A Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (SQUID) is disclosed comprising a pair of resistively shunted Josephson junctions connected in parallel within a superconducting loop and biased by an external direct current (dc) source. The SQUID comprises a semiconductor substrate and at least one superconducting layer. The metal layer(s) are separated by or covered with a semiconductor material layer having the properties of a conductor at room temperature and the properties of an insulator at operating temperatures (generally less than 100 Kelvins). The properties of the semiconductor material layer greatly reduces the risk of electrostatic discharge that can damage the device during normal handling of the device at room temperature, while still providing the insulating properties desired to allow normal functioning of the device at its operating temperature. A method of manufacturing the SQUID device is also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 4092938
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to electronically controlled sewing machines and in particular to the combination of such a machine with a re-programmable static memory with which an operator can program in input data representative of stitch position coordinates for selected patterns, which input data will be stored and decoded into input signals for initiating operation of the sewing machine stitch position actuating means to produce patterns corresponding to the operator selected pattern. The re-programmable memory can be located remote from the machine or can be built in as an integral part of the structure of the machine itself. The machine may also contain a static read-only-memory (ROM) having fixed patterns for operation of the machine with or without a re-programmable memory and includes switching means for disconnecting the read-only-memory when the re-programmable memory is connected to the machine.
