Abstract: A ring support is attached to an inner wall surface of a chamber that houses a semiconductor wafer to support a susceptor. When the semiconductor wafer is placed on the susceptor, an inner space of the chamber is separated into an upper space and a lower space. Particles are likely to accumulate on a lower chamber window as a floor part of the chamber. However, since the upper space and the lower space are separated, the semiconductor wafer can be prevented from being contaminated by the particles flowing into the upper space and adhering to a surface of the semiconductor wafer even when the particles on the lower chamber window are blown up by irradiation with flash light.

Abstract: Provided is a flash heating part including a plurality of flash lamps on an upper side of a chamber housing a semiconductor wafer, and also provided is an auxiliary heating part including a plurality of VCSELs (vertical cavity surface emitting lasers) on a lower side thereof. After the semiconductor wafer is preheated by light irradiation from the VCSELs, a front surface of the semiconductor wafer is irradiated with a flash of light from the flash lamps to instantaneously increase a temperature of the surface thereof. The VCSELs can emit light having relatively higher intensity than the LEDs. Thus, when light irradiation from the plurality of VCSELs is performed, intensity of light emitted to the substrate can also be increased, and the semiconductor wafer can be efficiently heated.
Abstract: A stretch detection system of a power transmission mechanism is connectable to a conveyor system including a motor, a rotation mechanism driven by the motor, and the power transmission mechanism driven by rotation of the rotation mechanism. The stretch detection system converts a signal of a current of the motor into a frequency domain signal, and calculates an integral value by performing integration on the frequency domain signal obtained by the frequency domain signal conversion unit, by using, as an integration range, at least one of regions of a sideband wave having a frequency determined using a rotation frequency of the rotation mechanism. A stretch diagnosis unit diagnoses a state of stretch of the power transmission mechanism by using the integral value calculated by the integral value calculation unit. Further, an output unit outputs a diagnosis result of the stretch diagnosis unit.

Abstract: A plurality of substrate support pins are erected on a susceptor that holds a semiconductor wafer that is an object being treated. The plurality of substrate support pins are set in a ring shape at equal intervals. A flash lamp irradiates the semiconductor wafer supported by the plurality of substrate support pins with flash light to heat the semiconductor wafer. The radius of a setting circle in which the plurality of substrate support pins are set is made larger as the pulse width of flash light emitted from the flash lamp decreases. To irradiate the semiconductor wafer with flash light while having the semiconductor wafer supported by the plurality of substrate support pins can prevent cracking of the semiconductor wafer despite possible abrupt deformation of the semiconductor wafer due to the flash-light irradiation.
Abstract: A first nitride semiconductor layer and a second nitride semiconductor layer are laminated in a first direction. The first and second nitride semiconductor layers form a heterojunction, and a two-dimensional carrier gas is induced in the first nitride semiconductor layer. A drain electrode is opposite to a source electrode via gate electrode in a third direction. The source electrode and the drain electrode conduct with the first nitride semiconductor layer. The first and second nitride semiconductor layers form a Schottky junction with the gate electrode. A first layer is located between the gate electrode and the drain electrode in the third direction and is in contact with the gate electrode, and is in contact with the second nitride semiconductor layer in a second direction. The first layer suppresses induction of the two-dimensional carrier gas in the first nitride semiconductor layer opposite to the first layer in the first direction.
