  • Patent number: 9985039
    Abstract: An insulating film made of the same material as that of a gate insulating film is formed so as to cover one sidewall of a control gate on a conducting film for floating gate. By selectively removing the conducting film for floating gate with the insulating film as a mask, a floating gate is formed from the conducting film for floating gate, and a portion of the gate insulating film is exposed at the floating gate. A nitrogen introduced portion is formed by introducing nitrogen into the exposed portion of the gate insulating film. Then, the insulating film is removed to expose an upper surface of a lateral protrusion of the floating gate. An erase gate is formed so as to face the upper surface and a side surface of the lateral protrusion.

  • Patent number: 9315439
    Abstract: Provided is an aldehyde production method that can provide target aldehydes with excellent aldehyde selectivity and a high conversion for a long period of time. The method includes bringing a mixed gas containing a vaporized primary alcohol and an inert gas into contact with a film-type dehydrogenation catalyst so as to dehydrogenate the primary alcohol in the mixed gas, thereby obtaining an aldehyde. The partial pressure of the primary alcohol in the mixed gas is 50 kPa or lower, and the film-type dehydrogenation catalyst is formed by providing a thin film catalyst layer on a support.
