  • Publication number: 20210118710
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a wafer inspection technology that involves less degradation of the image quality even when an object to be observed has a variation in height due to warpage, etc. of a wafer. This wafer inspection apparatus obtains an image with less degradation by: adjusting the focal point of an observation optical system to a height measured by a height sensor for measuring wafer surface heights; and further, correcting a switching signal for a CCD line sensor on the basis of stage position data and optical magnification data corresponding to the height so as to make a correction corresponding to the wafer surface height.

  • Patent number: 10191594
    Abstract: In a projection-type video display device that displays an image by projecting the image onto a projection object starting from a desk surface, a display screen on which a position and a gesture operation of a user are reflected is displayed in a predetermined area. An illumination and a camera are disposed in the projection-type video display device installed on the desk surface, a gesture using user's fingers is detected, and, for example, a menu screen and an operation guide are displayed according to the gesture. The shadows of the fingers are photographed by the camera, and a gesture is detected. According to the gesture, the display screen is moved, rotated, divided, or enlarged/reduced, or a menu screen is displayed. The display direction is determined in consideration of the direction of sides of the desk.
