  • Publication number: 20210262987
    Abstract: A measurement method performed by a semiconductor manufacturing apparatus including a chamber is provided. In the measurement method, first measurement data including a signal of a resonance frequency of the chamber is acquired as reference data, in response to transmitting an electrical signal into the chamber while a jig capable of performing wireless communication is not placed in the chamber. Subsequently, second measurement data including the signal of the resonance frequency of the chamber and including a signal of a resonance frequency of a sensor installed in the jig is acquired, in response to transmitting an electrical signal into the chamber while the jig is placed in the chamber. By subtracting the reference data from the second measurement data, third measurement data is calculated.

  • Patent number: 9506499
    Abstract: A thrust bearing is equipped with a resin coating applied to the surface of a base material. Lattice-shaped discharge grooves are formed in the surface of the thrust bearing, and planer protrusions having a square shape or the like are formed at the adjacent positions thereof. Each corner part of each planer protrusion form a sliding surface that slides with respect to a counterpart member. Contaminants such as wear particles that have infiltrated between the counterpart member and the sliding surface fail into the discharge grooves and then are discharged outside of the sliding surface. The chamfering of each corner part to a rounded shape prevents the contaminants from accumulating in the discharge grooves, thus preventing the contaminants from biting into the planer protrusions.
