Patents by Inventor Rui Yatabe

Rui Yatabe has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Publication number: 20220091059
    Abstract: A gas sensor includes: a substrate; a first conductor and a second conductor that are disposed on the substrate; an insulating layer; and an adsorbent layer. The insulating layer covers the first conductor and the second conductor, and has a first opening that allows a part of a surface of the first conductor to be exposed therethrough and a second opening that allows a part of a surface of the second conductor to be exposed therethrough. The adsorbent layer contains a conductive material and an organic adsorbent that can adsorb a gas. The adsorbent layer is in contact with the first conductor and the second conductor respectively through the first opening and the second opening.
    Type: Application

  • Patent number: 8975172
    Abstract: [Object] To provide a method for manufacturing a solar cell element including a semiconductor substrate that includes a high-concentration dopant layer located near the surface of the semiconductor substrate and a low-concentration dopant layer located more inside the semiconductor substrate than the high-concentration dopant layer. [Solving Means] A method includes heating a semiconductor substrate having a first conductivity type in a first atmosphere which contains a dopant having a second conductivity type and which has a first dopant concentration; heating in a second atmosphere the semiconductor substrate heated in the first atmosphere, the second atmosphere having a second dopant concentration less than the first dopant concentration; and heating in a third atmosphere the semiconductor substrate heated in the second atmosphere, the third atmosphere having a third dopant concentration greater than the second dopant concentration.
