  • Publication number: 20170361345
    Abstract: An ultrasonic nebulizer includes a tank unit configured to be detachable with respect to a main body. The tank unit includes a working tank in which an ultrasonic vibrator is incorporated, a medicine tank, and a medicine tank cover, which are arranged overlaid in the stated order. The output of an oscillation circuit in the main body is applied to the ultrasonic vibrator through a main body-side contact electrode and a tank-side contact electrode when the tank unit is mounted on the main body. The main body includes an air fan that blows air into the medicine tank through an air duct of the medicine tank cover, and a medicine tank cover detection unit that detects whether or not the air duct of the medicine tank cover is adjacent to the main body so as to detect whether or not the tank unit is mounted on the main body.

  • Publication number: 20140206261
    Abstract: A method for polishing at least one wafer composed of semiconductor material that has a front side and the rear side includes performing at least one first polishing step including simultaneously polishing both front and rear sides of the at least one wafer at a process temperature between an upper polishing plate and a lower polishing plate. Each of the upper polishing and lower polishing plates is covered with a polishing pad having an inner edge and an outer edge, a hardness of at least 80° Shore A, a compressibility of less than 2.5%, and respective upper and lower surfaces that come into contact with the wafer being polished. The upper and lower surfaces form a polishing gap extending from the inner edge to the outer edge. A height of the polishing gap at the inner edge differs linearly from the height of the polishing gap at the outer edge.

  • Publication number: 20140141613
    Abstract: A process for polishing a semiconductor wafer includes simultaneous polishing of a front side and of a reverse side of a substrate wafer in the presence of polishing medium so as to achieve material removal from the front side and the reverse side of the substrate wafer. The simultaneous polishing includes a first step and a second step. A speed of material removal in the first step is higher than in the second step. The first step includes the use of a first polishing slurry as a polishing medium and the second step includes a second polishing slurry as the polishing medium. The second polishing slurry differs from the first polishing slurry at least in that the second polishing slurry comprises a polymeric additive.
