  • Publication number: 20210118876
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes a method for forming (i) input/output (I/O) fin field effect transistors (FET) with polysilicon gate electrodes and silicon oxide gate dielectrics integrated and (ii) non-I/O FETs with metal gate electrodes and high-k gate dielectrics. The method includes depositing a silicon oxide layer on a first region of a semiconductor substrate and a high-k dielectric layer on a second region of the semiconductor substrate; depositing a polysilicon layer on the silicon oxide and high-k dielectric layers; patterning the polysilicon layer to form a first polysilicon gate electrode structure on the silicon oxide layer and a second polysilicon gate electrode structure on the high-k dielectric layer, where the first polysilicon gate electrode structure is wider than the second polysilicon gate electrode structure and narrower than the silicon oxide layer. The method further includes replacing the second polysilicon gate electrode structure with a metal gate electrode structure.

  • Patent number: 9630166
    Abstract: A method is provided for fabricating a catalyst carrier. At first, aluminum hydroxide is used for forming an alumina powder. The alumina powder is mixed with carbon nanotubes and a complex additive to be shaped into a cake. The cake is kneaded into a noodle-like shape to be hot-dried. Then, calcination is processed in a furnace under 1200 celsius degrees (° C.) with air passed through. The crystal structure remains without phase change. A catalyst carrier of ?-alumina having nano-scaled pores is formed. The catalyst carrier is a powdery material made into different three-dimensional forms. The catalyst carrier thus fabricated is suitable for generating hydrogen through methane reformation. The catalyst carrier has a methane conversion greater than 99 percents. The catalyst carrier will not be crumbled under 800° C. for 4000 hours without carbon deposit.

  • Publication number: 20160362355
    Abstract: An oil product of gasoline is fabricated. The product contains hydrocarbon compound ranged as a gasoline composition. The purification process of dimethyl ether (DME) used in the present invention greatly reduces the feed rate for obtaining a smaller reactor with cost down. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is separated to be recycled back to the gasifier to be reused, archived or used otherwise for improves global environment. At the same time, CO2 is reacted with hydrocarbons, water vapor, etc. through a novel high-temperature plasma torch to generate a synthesis gas (syngas) of carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrogen (H2) for regulating a hydrogen/carbon ratio of a biomass- or hydrocarbon-synthesized compound and helping subsequent chemical synthesis reactions. In the end, the final gasoline production has a high yield, a high octane rate, low nitrogen and sulfur pollution and a highly ‘green’ quality.

  • Patent number: 9433911
    Abstract: A reactor using honeycomb catalyst is provided for fuel reformation with high activity and heat stability. The reactor comprises a heating tube, a methane gas inlet, a three-way steam inlet and a hydrogen-rich gas outlet. The three-way steam inlet is near to the heating tube for providing heat required for reformation and to reduce power consumption. The heating tube is made of an inconel material so that the overall reaction may be carried out at high temperature. The heating tube is set with a honeycomb carrier of cordierite. The honeycomb carrier is pasted with carbon nanotube and heat-treated to increase internal surface area. The honeycomb carrier has a Pt/CeO2/?-Al2O3 catalyst; is placed in the heating tube; and has honeycomb-pores channels parallel to a main axis of the heating tube.
