  • Publication number: 20210376123
    Abstract: A method including depositing a dielectric film on a substrate including stacked structures with recessed portions formed on side surfaces of each of the stacked structures, wherein the dielectric film is deposited so that the stacked structures are covered at a thickness which is equal to or less than half a width of the recessed portions; filling a trench or trenches that are located between the stacked structures with a sacrificial film; etching the sacrificial film along the stacked structures; etching the dielectric film so that the dielectric film is etched more than the sacrificial film; removing the sacrificial film; after the removing of the sacrificial film, depositing a dielectric film to a thickness equal to or less than half the width of the recessed portions; and etching the deposited dielectric film, on a condition that the deposited dielectric film remains in the recessed portions.

  • Publication number: 20210335568
    Abstract: A method of processing a substrate includes loading the substrate on a substrate holder. The substrate includes a major surface and a feature disposed over the major surface. The feature has a first width along an etch direction. The method includes exposing portions of the major surface and changing the first width of the feature to a second width along the etch direction by etching a first portion of the sidewalls of the feature with a gas cluster ion beam oriented along a beam direction.

  • Patent number: 11131276
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a heat exchanger device for EGR (“Exhaust Gas Recirculation”) systems, with a constructive solution which minimizes thermal fatigue when boiling occurs. The invention is characterized by a specific configuration of the inner space of the shell divided into a first exchange sub-space and a second degassing space communicated with one another, and wherein the inlet and outlet ports are located at the end where the cold baffle is located.

  • Publication number: 20210208164
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for diagnosing allergy in a human or animal patient, wherein the level of species-specific lipocalin, especially lipocalin 2 in a human patient, is measured in a sample of said patient and wherein a lowered level of said lipocalin compared to the level of said lipocalin in the corresponding sample of a human or animal that has no allergy, is indicative of an allergy, as well as a kit for performing this method, and a kit for quality control of allergen molecules or extracts used for immunotherapy of allergy by determining its siderophore-iron ligand load and thus immunomodulatory potency. Further, lipocalin proteins for use in treatment or prevention of allergies are provided, preferably complexed with siderophore-iron ligands.

  • Publication number: 20200273715
    Abstract: Techniques herein provide effective smoothing and planarization of various surfaces. Techniques include using multiple particle beams to correct different aspects of a given workpiece. A workpiece needing correction from scratches and roughness is treated with a first particle beam that reduces scratches on a working surface of the workpiece using an inert beam. The workpiece is also treated with a second particle beam that is chemically reactive and reduces step-height values across the working surface of the workpiece, thereby producing a surface with reduced scratches and roughness.

  • Patent number: 10472663
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for the rapid evaluation of bacterial susceptibility or non-susceptibility of bacteria to antibiotics that inhibit protein synthesis. The rationale is to identify bacterial responses that depend or are influenced by protein synthesis. If this response is prevented or reduced by the antibiotic that inhibits the protein synthesis, the bacteria are susceptible to this antibiotic. Otherwise, if the response keeps similar despite the incubation with the antibiotic, the bacteria are not susceptible or resistant to this antibiotic. These responses could be determined at the DNA lev-el, cell wall level, morphological level or any other experimental approach, including metabolic, bio-chemical, physiological or genetic processes.
