  • Patent number: 10381255
    Abstract: A bonded structure contains a substrate containing at least one feature, the substrate having a top surface; a first release layer overlying the top surface of the substrate, the first release layer being absorptive of light having a first wavelength for being decomposed by the light; an adhesive layer overlying the first release layer, and a second release layer overlying the adhesive layer. The second release layer is absorptive of light having a second wavelength for being decomposed by the light having the second wavelength. The bonded structure further contains a handle substrate that overlies the second release layer, where the handle substrate is substantially transparent to the light having the first wavelength and the second wavelength. Also disclosed is a debonding method to process the bonded structure to remove and reclaim the adhesive layer for re-use. In another embodiment a multi-step method optically cuts and debonds a bonded structure.

  • Patent number: 10296681
    Abstract: Methods and systems for automatically generating robust metrology targets which can accommodate a variety of lithography processes and process perturbations. Individual steps of an overall lithography process are modeled into a single process sequence to simulate the physical substrate processing. That process sequence drives the creation of a three-dimensional device geometry as a whole, rather than “building” the device geometry element-by-element.

  • Patent number: 10207892
    Abstract: A cable reel for audio-visual device includes an upper base and a lower base attracted to an external device. An audio-visual device hangs on a top of the lower base. The upper base cooperates with the lower base whereby connection cables are spooled and accommodated in an upper circular groove of the upper base and a lower circular groove of the lower base. The present invention places the audio-visual device so that a user can easily spool connection cables of the audio-visual device with one hand. Once the audio-visual device is not needed, the user can rapidly and conveniently manage cables and place the audio-visual device without worrying about the inner breaking of the connection cables resulted from entangling the connection cables.

  • Patent number: 10054289
    Abstract: An illumination device for infinite mirroring, has a lighting module. A light-guiding frame guides a first light source of the lighting module to form light-guiding light source. The lower mirror reflects the light-guiding light source to form a reflection light source reflecting mirror images. The light-guiding ring has a light-guiding surface. The reflection light source incident on the light-guiding ring uniformly scatters to the light-guiding surface to form a ring-shaped light source. The lower mirror uses a first hollow interruption element to interrupt a part of the reflection light source to form a spaced layered light source. The upper mirror simultaneously reflects the ring-shaped light source and the spaced layered light source and uses the second hollow interruption element in the hollow cover to interrupt the ring-shaped light source to form a multilayered mirroring light ring.

  • Patent number: 9777918
    Abstract: In a lightable fan structure for dissipating heat, a circuit board is arranged in a fan body, and the circuit board is sequentially provided with a first light-guiding frame and a second light-guiding frame, and the circuit board is provide with a plurality of side-light lighting elements. Every two side-light lighting elements is reversely arranged and spaced on a rim of the circuit board. A bottom of the first light-guiding frame is annually provided with a lighting reflection layer, and the side-light lighting elements are arranged below the lighting reflection layer. The lighting reflection layer reflects light sources of the side-light lighting elements to pass through an edge and a top of the first light-guiding frame and the second light-guiding frame, thereby uniformly scattering and forming a circular light source.

  • Patent number: 8929561
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable storage media for automatically analyzing, modifying, and mixing a plurality of audio signals. The modification of the audio signals takes place to avoid spectral collisions which occur when more than one signal simultaneously occupies one or more of the same frequency bands. The modifications mask out some signals to allow others to exist unaffected. Also disclosed herein is a method for displaying the identified spectral collisions superimposed on graphical waveform representations of the analyzed signals.

  • Patent number: 8465450
    Abstract: A vertically hand palm pressing suction device for a piston breast pump includes a casing and a piston suction member. The device is provided with a pressing handle, which goes through the casing and is fixedly connected with a gear shaft mounted on a base. A piston of the piston suction member is connected to a toothed rack. The pressing handle and the toothed rack are operatively connected through a gear member, wherein the connection converts up-and-down movement of the pressing handle into forth-and-back movement of the piston.
