  • Patent number: 10354894
    Abstract: A semiconductor wafer held by a holder within a chamber is irradiated and heated with halogen light emitted from multiple halogen lamps. Cylindrical outer and inner louvers made of opaque quartz are provided between the halogen lamps and the semiconductor wafer. A reflector is provided in an area of tube walls of the halogen lamps that faces the spacing between the inner wall surface of the outer louver and the outer wall surface of the inner louver. The spacing between the two louvers is located immediately below and faces the peripheral portion of the semiconductor wafer. Thus, the illuminance of light that reaches the peripheral portion of the semiconductor wafer where a temperature drop is likely to occur will be higher than the illuminance of light that travels toward the central portion from the halogen lamps. This configuration will help make uniform the in-plane temperature distribution of the semiconductor wafer.

  • Publication number: 20190207527
    Abstract: A control unit controls an inverter circuit such that a positive voltage and a negative voltage are alternately applied to a primary winding. The control unit controls a cycloconverter so as to allow no power to be transmitted between the cycloconverter and the inverter circuit in a first period including an inversion period during which a voltage of the primary winding has its polarity inverted. The control unit also controls the cycloconverter so as to allow power to be transmitted either in a first direction from the cycloconverter toward the inverter circuit, or in a second direction opposite from the first direction, in a second period different from the first period.
