  • Patent number: 11225729
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a SiC single crystal reducing crystallinity degradation at a wafer central portion wherein a growth container surrounds a heat-insulating material with a top temperature measurement hole, a seed crystal substrate at an upper portion inside the container, and a silicon carbide raw material at a lower portion of the container and sublimated to grow a SiC single crystal on the seed crystal substrate. A center position hole deviates from a center position of the seed crystal substrate and moves to the periphery side of the center of the seed crystal substrate. A SiC single crystal substrate surface is tilted by a {0001} plane and used as the seed crystal substrate. The SiC single crystal grows with the seed crystal substrate directed to a normal vector of the seed crystal substrate basal plane parallel to the main surface and identical to the hole in a cross-sectional view.

  • Patent number: 8664566
    Abstract: An arc welding apparatus includes a main power supply circuit for outputting an arc current, a control circuit for controlling the main power supply circuit, and a high-frequency voltage generating circuit for generating a high-frequency voltage. When an operation switch is turned on for a first time since the apparatus is powered on, the control circuit activates the main power supply circuit to output a high voltage, and the high-frequency voltage generating circuit to generate a high-frequency voltage. With the high voltage superimposed on the high-frequency voltage, the control circuit passes a welding arc current through a torch and a base material. The switch is then turned off, and the control circuit passes a pilot arc current through the torch and the base material. The switch is turned on again, and the control circuit activates the main power supply circuit to output a high voltage, thereby allowing smooth arc transition.
