  • Patent number: 10287676
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for forming a TiO2 thin film on a substrate by using an atmospheric pressure CVD method, in which a raw material gas contains titanium tetraisopropoxide (TTIP) and a chloride of a metal M vaporizable in a temperature range of 100 to 400° C. and the amount of the chloride of the metal M is from 0.01 to 0.18 as a concentration ratio to the titanium tetraisopropoxide (TTIP) (chloride of metal M (mol %)/TTIP (mol %)).

  • Publication number: 20150068595
    Abstract: A glass substrate for a Cu—In—Ga—Se solar cell. The glass substrate includes the specific amounts of SiO2, Al2O3, B2O3, MgO, CaO, SrO, BaO, ZrO2, Na2O and K2O. In the glass substrate, MgO+CaO+SrO+BaO is from 10 to 30%, Na2O+K2O is from 8 to 20%, Na2O/K2O is from 0.7 to 2.0, and (2×Na2O-2×MgO—CaO)×(Na2O/K2O) is from 3 to 22. The glass substrate has a glass transition temperature of from 640 to 700° C., an average coefficient of thermal expansion of from 60×10?7 to 110×10?7/° C., and a density of from 2.45 to 2.9 g/cm3.

  • Patent number: 8895463
    Abstract: A glass substrate for a CIGS solar cell, having high cell efficiency and high glass transition temperature is provided. The glass substrate for a vapor-deposited CIGS film solar cell has a glass transition temperature of at least 580° C. and an average thermal expansion coefficient of from 70×10?7 to 100×10?7/° C., wherein the ratio of the average total amount of Ca, Sr and Ba within from 10 to 40 nm in depth from the surface of the glass substrate to the total amount of Ca, Sr and Ba at 5,000 nm in depth from the surface of the glass substrate is at most 0.35, and the ratio of the average Na amount within from 10 to 40 nm in depth from the surface of the glass substrate after heat treatment to such average Na amount before the heat treatment is at least 1.5.

  • Patent number: 5285275
    Abstract: A method of and a circuit for decoding compressed picture image data wherein compressed picture image data of a variable length can be decoded at a fixed high rate. A buffer memory into which compressed picture image data are to be written has a capacity greater than an amount of object compressed picture image data for one frame. Before compressed picture image data are written into the buffer memory, it is checked as to whether or not the buffer memory has an empty space into which such compressed picture image data for one frame can be written. When the checking proves that the buffer memory has such empty space, the compressed picture image data are written into the buffer memory, but on the contrary if the buffer memory has no such empty space, the picture image data are abandoned and not written into the buffer memory.
