  • Patent number: 9073098
    Abstract: A collector mirror of an extreme ultraviolet light source is cleaned by removing the collector mirror from a chamber of the extreme ultraviolet light source; mounting the collector mirror to a carrier; inserting the carrier with the collector mirror into a cleaning tank; applying a cleaning agent to a reflective surface of the collector mirror by spraying the cleaning agent through a plurality of nozzles directed toward the collector mirror reflective surface until the collector mirror reflective surface is clean; rinsing the applied cleaning agent from the collector mirror reflective surface; and drying the collector mirror reflective surface.

  • Patent number: 8943662
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a method removes gold plating on an electronic component. The method includes forming a gold and solder mixture on the electronic component via a first incrementally controlled heating procedure; incrementally cooling the electronic component via a first cooling procedure; wicking part or all of the gold and solder mixture from the electronic component to a metallic screen via a second incrementally controlled heating procedure; and incrementally cooling the electronic component via a second cooling procedure.

  • Patent number: 8618487
    Abstract: A system for imaging a distribution of an absorbent material within an absorbent article. The system includes a radiation source and a detector positioned such that the absorbent article is situated between the radiation source and the detector. The absorbent article includes an absorbent material having a spatial distribution within the absorbent article. Infrared radiation within a particular wavelength range (e.g., 3 ?m to 3.2 ?m) is more likely to be absorbed by the absorbent material than by other materials within the absorbent article. The radiation source is configured to generate infrared radiation incident on the absorbent article. The detector is configured to detect a quantity of the infrared radiation within the particular wavelength range that was transmitted through the absorbent article. The radiation source is further configured to generate data indicative of the spatial distribution of the absorbent material based on the detected quantity of the infrared radiation.

  • Publication number: 20110141269
    Abstract: Various embodiments are directed to apparatuses for inspecting an on-line product web moving relative to the apparatus in a machine direction. The apparatuses may comprise a line-scan camera defining a field of view and positioned such that the field of view includes a portion of the product web. A camera control system may be in electronic communication with the camera and may be configured to receive from the web velocity sensor web velocity data indicating a velocity of the product web and convert the web velocity data to a line trigger signal. The line trigger signal may indicate a temporal frequency of camera image captures necessary to achieve a constant machine direction pixel resolution. Additionally, the camera control system may be configured to receive product position data and generate a frame trigger signal considering the product position data. The frame trigger signal may indicate a break between image frames.
