  • Patent number: 11988959
    Abstract: Organometallic radiation resist compositions are described based on tin ions with alkyl ligands. Some of the compositions have branched alkyl ligands to provide for improved patterning contrast while maintaining a high degree of solution stability. Blends of compounds with distinct alkyl ligands can provide further improvement in the patterning. High resolution patterning with a half-pitch of no more than 25 nm can be achieved with a line width roughness of no more than about 4.5 nm. Synthesis techniques have been developed that allow for the formation of alkyl tin oxide hydroxide compositions with very low metal contamination.

  • Publication number: 20240094632
    Abstract: Precursor solutions for radiation patternable coatings are formed with an organic solvent and monoalkyl tin trialkoxides in which the water content of the solvent is adjusted to be within 10 percent of a selected value. Generally, the water content of the solvent is adjusted through water addition, although water removal can also be used. In some embodiments, the adjusted water content of the solvent can be from about 250 ppm by weight to about 10,000 ppm by weight. With the appropriate selection of ligands, the adjusted precursor solutions can be stable for at least about 42 days, and in some cases at least 8 months.

  • Patent number: 11849931
    Abstract: Systems, devices, and methods suitable for use with procedures performed at least partially percutaneously are provided. In some procedures, two or more access devices for providing access to adjacent surgical locations within a patient are used. Certain embodiments of the access device comprise an elongate body having a distal end with one or more cutouts. The cutouts on adjacent access devices are generally aligned with each other to permit passage of a portion of a fixation element from one access device to the other access device. A fastener with an elongated removable head may be delivered to the surgical site through the access device. After a distal end of the fastener is secured to the surgical site, a portion of the elongated housing is detached from the remainder of the fastener and removed from the patient.

  • Publication number: 20220297269
    Abstract: A stop valve adaptor to make a stop valve having a threaded stem actuatable through a stop valve box using a stop valve key. The stop valve adaptor is affixed to the threaded stop valve stem using a nut. The stop valve box is preferably made of a polymeric material and is maintained at a predetermined length by using friction due to O-rings, a glue joint, or clamping to dispose a stop valve box cover at the ground surface.

  • Patent number: 11306839
    Abstract: A poppet-style check valve comprising a small poppet and a large poppet. When low flow rates are required, the small poppet opens and permits the low flow rate to pass efficiently. When demand for flow increases, the large poppet opens, permitting efficient passage of higher flow rates.

  • Patent number: 10197051
    Abstract: A pump control switch for controlling the operation of a pump, where the pump switch includes a pressure activated switch and a run capacitor located in a single housing. The pressure switch is attached by a pipe fitting to be in fluid communication with the water line that feeds into a storage tank, to sense the water system pressure. The water system pressure sensed by the switch moves the electrical contacts in the switch between their open and closed positions. The pressure switch is disposed to operably electrically interconnect a power source, the run capacitor, and the pump motor.

  • Patent number: 9085878
    Abstract: A yard hydrant, including a discharge nozzle above ground level, connects to other vertically reciprocal working parts in the ground below the frost line. A water storage chamber, disposed below the frost line, is formed in part by a deformable diaphragm. Residual water in the hydrant, when the hydrant is turned off, is collected in the water storage chamber and returned to the hydrant for discharge through the nozzle when the hydrant is turned on. A venturi disposed in the water supply line creates turbulence and thereby creates a lower pressure adjacent the exit of the venturi when the hydrant is turned on. This lowered pressure at the venturi exit speeds up the evacuation of water from the water storage chamber when the hydrant is on so the storage chamber can accept and store water that would otherwise be above the frost line when the hydrant is turned off.
