  • Patent number: 9147571
    Abstract: An accordion-structured welded bellows for a semiconductor-manufacturing device is characterized in that a plurality of annular bellows plates having curved surfaces in a radial direction are connected in an alternating fashion on the outside-diameter side and the inside-diameter side, wherein the annular bellows plates have a processing-side bellows plate and a non-processing-side bellows plate, a gas layer is interposed between the two bellows plates, the processing-side bellows plate is configured as a thick plate, and the non-processing-side bellows plate is configured as a thin plate. The welded bellows is less likely to be damaged by foreign matter and to be able to use the non-processing-side bellows plate to compensate for any damage to the processing-side bellows plate.

  • Patent number: 8662010
    Abstract: A plasma film deposition apparatus (plasma processing apparatus) includes a second antenna 11b disposed around an antenna 11a and located outwardly of a ceiling surface. The second antenna 11b is supplied with an electric current flowing in a direction opposite to the direction of an electric current supplied to the antenna 11a by a power supply. Lines of magnetic force F2, heading in a direction opposite to the direction of lines of magnetic force F1 appearing at the site of the antenna 11a, are thereby generated at the site of the second antenna 11b. Thus, the magnetic flux density in the direction of the wall surface is lowered, even when a uniform plasma is generated over a wide range within a tubular container 2.
