  • Patent number: 10386255
    Abstract: A manufacturing method includes providing a semiconductor substrate having a pressure sensor structure; and forming, during a BEOL process (BEOL=back-end-of-line), a metal-insulator-stack arrangement on the semiconductor substrate, wherein the metal-insulator-stack arrangement is formed to comprise (1) a cavity adjacent to the pressure sensor structure and extending over the pressure sensor structure, and (2) a pressure port through the metal-insulator-stack arrangement for providing a fluidic connection between the cavity and an environmental atmosphere, wherein the pressure port has a cross-sectional area, which is smaller than 10% of a footprint area of the pressure sensor structure within the cavity.

  • Patent number: 10347778
    Abstract: An optical system and photo sensor pixel are provided. The photo sensor pixel includes a substrate including an active region and a peripheral region that is peripheral to the active region, an optical sensor disposed at the active region of the substrate and configured to receive light and output a measurement signal based on the received light, and an encapsulation layer disposed over the active region and the first peripheral region of the substrate. The encapsulation layer includes at least one subwavelength-based graded index structure provided over the peripheral region of the substrate, and the subwavelength-based graded index structure is configured to redirect the light from a region over the peripheral region onto the optical sensor.

  • Patent number: 10290805
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing an emitter comprises providing a semiconductor substrate having a main surface, the semiconductor substrate comprising a cavity adjacent to the main surface. A portion of the semiconductor substrate arranged between the cavity and the main surface of the semiconductor substrate forms a support structure. The method comprises arranging an emitting element at the support structure, the emitting element being configured to emit a thermal radiation of the emitter, wherein the cavity provides a reduction of a thermal coupling between the emitting element and the semiconductor substrate.

  • Patent number: 10271621
    Abstract: A gemstone with a chaton cut has tapering facets of a crown adjoin a flat table all the way round inclined relative to the table. The facets extend as far as a rondist at which the gemstone has the largest transverse dimension. A pavilion of facets, preferably terminating at a point, adjoins below the rondist. The gemstone is at least partially made of glass, and the crown angle (?) is between 40.5° and 42.5°.
