  • Patent number: 9070836
    Abstract: A semiconductor light-emitting device includes a lamination of semiconductor layers including a first layer of a first conductivity type, an active layer, and a second layer of a second conductivity type; a transparent conductive film formed on a principal surface of the lamination and having an opening; a pad electrode formed on part the opening; and a wiring electrode connected with the pad electrode, formed on another part of the opening while partially overlapping the transparent conductive film; wherein contact resistance between the transparent conductive film and the lamination is larger than contact resistance between the wiring electrode and the lamination. Field concentration at the wiring electrode upon application of high voltage is mitigated by the overlapping transparent conductive film.

  • Publication number: 20040002421
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a catalytic stuff includes grinding the ore containing silica as main component, carbon, etc.; burning the powder object at high temperature after grinded the ore; emitting the carbon dioxide generated by combustion and churning of other substances which are sticking to silica during combustion of the powder object; and burning the remained catalytic stuff at high temperature again after carbon dioxide emits and manufacturing the catalytic stuff used for the mixed material with metal, filter medium of pollution water, propagation material etc. so that the tap water, the polluted water are improved efficient using the generated catalytic stuff, and it can be used broadly as water for home use, industrial use, agricultural use, and medical treatment, etc. and the balance of the body and cell can improve remarkably by holding the catalytic stuff since the generated catalytic stuff has the ultra-red ray effect etc.
