  • Patent number: 11430118
    Abstract: In one embodiment, an X-ray inspection system may capture one or more X-ray images for samples of interest processed by a first tool. The X-ray inspection system may be inline with the first tool and have an inspection speed of 300 mm2 per minute or greater. The system may determine, in real-time, metrology information related to the samples of interest based on the X-ray images. The metrology information may indicate that a sample parameter associated with the samples of interest is outside of a pre-determined range. The system may provide instructions or data to one or more of the first tool or one or more second tools to adjust process parameters associated with the respective tools based on metrology information. The adjusted process parameters may reduce a processing error probability, of the respective tool for processing subsequent samples, related to the sample parameter being outside of the pre-determined range.

  • Publication number: 20220215181
    Abstract: Techniques are described related to prior context retrieval with an automated assistant. In various implementations, instance(s) of free-form natural language input received from a user during a human-to-computer dialog session between the user and an automated assistant may be used to generate a first dialog context. The first dialog context may include intent(s) and slot value(s) associated with the intent(s). Similar operations may be performed with additional inputs to generate a second dialog context that is semantically distinct from the first dialog context. When a command is received from the user to transition the automated assistant back to the first dialog context, natural language output may be generated that conveys at least one or more of the intents of the first dialog context and one or more of the slot values of the first dialog context. This natural language output may be presented to the user.

  • Publication number: 20220179319
    Abstract: The present invention relates to resist compostions, in particular to photoresists that can be used in photolithography, especially in the fabrication of integrated circuits and derivative products. The resist compositions of the invention include an anti-scattering component which has a significant amount of empty space, and thus fewer scattering centers, such that radiation-scattering events are more limited during exposure. Such anti-scattering effects can lead to improved resolutions by reducing the usual proximity effects associated with lithographic techniques, allowing the production of smaller, higher resolution microchips. Furthermore, certain embodiments involve anti-scattering components which are directly linked to the resist components, which can improve the overall lithographic chemistry to provide benefits both in terms of resolution and resist sensitivity.

  • Publication number: 20220083653
    Abstract: This disclosure provides techniques for pooling and searching network security events reported by multiple sources. As information representing a security event is received from one source, it is searched against a central or distributed database representing events reported from multiple, diverse sources (e.g., different client networks). Either the search or correlated results can be filtered and/or routed according at least one characteristic associated with the networks, for example, to limit correlation to events reported by what are presumed to be similarly situated networks. The disclosed techniques facilitate faster identification of high-relevancy security event information, and thereby help facilitate faster threat identification and mitigation. Various techniques can be implemented as standalone software (e.g., for use by a private network) or for a central pooling and/or query service. This disclosure also provides different examples of actions that can be taken in response to search results.

  • Patent number: 11195342
    Abstract: Examples provide customized augmented reality item filtering. An item filter analyzes item data using selection criteria and user preferences to identify high-interest item(s) and/or low-interest item(s) within a field of view (FOV) of a user device associated with a user. A high-interest item can include an item physically present within a portion of an item selection area or an un-stocked item not physically present within the portion of the item selection area. An augmented reality (AR) generator creates an AR image including a real-world image of the portion of the item selection area overlaid with graphical elements, including positive item indicators associated with high-interest items, negative item indicators associated with low-interest items, and/or un-stocked virtual items. The AR image is updated in real-time in response to user input, promotional data associated with one or more filtered item(s), and/or changes associated with the items within the FOV of the user device.
