  • Patent number: 10640869
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a semiconductor device, includes: supplying precursor gas into process chamber in which plural substrates are accommodated by sequentially performing: supplying inert gas at first inert gas flow rate from first nozzle into the process chamber; supplying the inert gas at second inert gas flow rate higher than the first inert gas flow rate from the first nozzle into the process chamber while supplying precursor gas from the first nozzle into the process chamber; and supplying the inert gas at the first inert gas flow rate from the first nozzle into the process chamber while the process chamber is evacuated from an upstream side of flow of the precursor gas; stopping supply of the precursor gas; removing the precursor gas remaining in the process chamber; supplying reaction gas from a second nozzle into the process chamber; and removing the reaction gas remaining in the process chamber.

  • Publication number: 20200129962
    Abstract: In order to provide an exhaust gas purification catalyst capable of purifying hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and nitrogen oxides in exhaust gas at low temperatures, the exhaust gas purification catalyst according to the present invention includes: a region (2) containing palladium on a three-dimensional structure (1), and a first region (3) and a second region (4) provided on the region (2) in order from an inflow side of exhaust gas to an outflow side of exhaust gas. The concentration of rhodium contained in the first region (3) is higher than the concentration of rhodium contained in the second region (4).

  • Patent number: 10564082
    Abstract: According to improvement of the receptor layer of various sensors of the type for detecting physical parameters (for example, a surface stress sensor, QCM, and SPR), all of high sensitivity, selectivity, and durability are achieved simultaneously. A porous material or a particulate material, e.g., nanoparticles, is used in place of a uniform membrane which has been conventionally used as a receptor layer. Accordingly, the sensitivity can be controlled by changing the membrane thickness of the receptor layer, the selectivity can be controlled by changing a surface modifying group to be fixed on the porous material or particulate material, and the durability can be controlled by changing the composition and surface properties of the porous material or particulate material.

  • Publication number: 20200049042
    Abstract: In order to provide an exhaust gas purification catalyst capable of purifying hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and nitrogen oxides in exhaust gas at low temperatures, the exhaust gas purification catalyst according to the present invention includes: a region (2) containing palladium and yttrium on a three-dimensional structure (1), and a first region (3) and a second region (4) provided on the region (2) in order from an inflow side of exhaust gas to an outflow side of exhaust gas. The concentration of yttrium contained in the first region (3) and/or the second region (4) is higher than the concentration of yttrium contained in the region (2).
