  • Patent number: 11086236
    Abstract: In an exposure apparatus, on a substrate holder (34), a plurality of grating areas (RG) is arranged mutually apart in the X-axis direction, and a plurality of heads (66a to 66d) that irradiates a measurement beam with respect to the grating area and can move in the Y-axis direction is arranged outside of the substrate holder. A control system controls movement of the substrate holder in at least directions of three degrees of freedom within an XY plane, based on measurement information of at least three heads of the plurality of heads facing the grating area and measurement information of a measurement device that measures position information of the plurality of heads. The measurement beam of each of the plurality of heads, during the movement of substrate holder in the X-axis direction, moves off of one of the plurality of grating areas and switches to another adjacent grating area.

  • Publication number: 20210240930
    Abstract: A selection decision made by a user at a time of searching is facilitated. An optimum output mode for each word is determined from an input sentence including a plurality of words, and data of the determined output mode corresponding to each word is output. For example, a suitable word for presentation by an image is extracted from an input sentence including a plurality of words, and an image corresponding to the suitable word is output. For example, the image corresponding to the suitable word is output by being included in a search result corresponding to other search conditions of the input sentence. In this case, it becomes possible to present the user with the image corresponding to the word that is included in the input sentence and is suitable for presentation by an image.

  • Publication number: 20210033652
    Abstract: Provided is a sensor in which a current sensor that detects a current of a power line as a change in a magnetic field and a voltage sensor that detects a voltage of the power line using capacitive coupling are integrally formed. The transmission of signals related to substantially the same sections is omitted in order to effectively compress an output signal from the sensor and an output signal from the voltage sensor. When the amplitude and phase of a fundamental wave which are estimated from the output signal from the sensor and the amplitude and phase of harmonics are encoded, the amplitude and phase of the harmonics are relativized with a value for the fundamental wave.
