  • Publication number: 20220260930
    Abstract: A computation device is provided for measuring the dimensions of patterns formed on a sample based on a signal obtained from a charged particle beam device. The computation device includes a positional deviation amount calculation unit for calculating the amount of positional deviation in a direction parallel to a wafer surface between two patterns having different heights based on an image acquired at a given beam tilt angle; a pattern inclination amount calculation unit for calculating an amount of pattern inclination from the amount of positional deviation using a predetermined relational expression for the amount of positional deviation and the amount of pattern inclination; and a beam tilt control amount calculation unit for controlling the beam tilt angle so as to match the amount of pattern inclination. The pattern measurement device sets the beam tilt angle to a calculated beam tilt angle, reacquires an image and measures the patterns.

  • Publication number: 20150091446
    Abstract: The lighting control console includes a display, an operation device and a controller. The display displays a lighting spatial image corresponding to the lighting space, and displays, in the lighting spatial image, virtual instruments corresponding to the respective lighting instruments so that positions of the virtual instruments in the lighting spatial image correspond to respective positions of the lighting instruments in the lighting space. The operation device has a three dimensional detection space associated with the lighting spatial image and/or the lighting space. The operation device detects a position of an operation object in the detection space and specifies a position in the lighting spatial image based on the detected position in the detection space. The controller identifies, when one of the virtual instruments in the lighting spatial image is specified by the operation object through the operation device, a lighting instrument associated with the specified virtual instrument.

  • Patent number: 8433832
    Abstract: A control equipment with a built-in communication apparatus is provided which realizes a delay required for communication without a software intervention while at the same time reducing a load of the communication processing. The control equipment with a communication apparatus includes: a communication device to communicate with a plurality of destinations; and a decision device to determine a mode requiring a reception completion interrupt and a mode not requiring the reception completion interrupt. If the decision device decides that the reception completion interrupt is not necessary, the communication device transmits data to one or more destinations and also virtually transmits data to a second destination different from the first intended destination.

  • Patent number: 8041231
    Abstract: The present invention aims at providing a technique capable of supervising and controlling optical repeaters, without affecting transmission characteristics and wavelength bands of signal lights, by utilizing the Raman effect. To this end, the present invention provides a supervisory controlling system of an optical repeater, in an optical amplifying-and-repeating transmission system for amplifying and repeatingly transmitting signal light propagated through an optical transmission path by the optical repeater, wherein the supervisory control signal light is amplified due to the Raman effect by the signal light acting as excitation light in an optical transmission path (Raman amplifying medium), to thereby supervise and control the optical repeater in accordance with the thus Raman amplified supervisory control signal light.
