  • Publication number: 20180012437
    Abstract: A coin comprising a metallic disc separated from a concentric annular metallic ring by a concentric intervening layer. The metallic disc has a first electrical conductivity and the annular metallic ring has a second electrical conductivity. This intervening layer comprises a transparent dielectric material that connects the metallic disc to the annular metallic ring. The intervening layer has a width to provide a separation of inductive signatures of the metallic disc and the annular metallic ring. The width is based on an electrical conductivity ratio of the first electrical conductivity to the second electrical conductivity and is further based on a geometry of the coin. In some embodiments, the intervening layer comprises a transparent polymer including additives, such as a UV stabilizer or a fluorescent component.

  • Patent number: 9810993
    Abstract: A mirror, in particular for a microlithographic projection exposure apparatus, has an optically effective surface (10a), a mirror substrate (11) and a reflection layer stack (12) configured to reflect electromagnetic radiation that is incident on the optically effective surface. A metallic diffusion barrier layer (13) is arranged on that side of the reflection layer stack which faces toward the optically effective surface, and a stabilization layer (14) is arranged on the side of the diffusion barrier layer that faces toward the optically effective surface (10a). The stabilization layer reduces deformation of the diffusion barrier layer compared to an analogous structure without such a stabilization layer upon irradiation of the optically effective surface with electromagnetic radiation. The stabilization layer has a porosity, a relative density of which is no more than 80%, where the relative density is defined as the ratio between geometric density and true density.
