  • Patent number: 8488866
    Abstract: A inspection image data of the chip A is captured and the data representing the amount of correction of flare corresponded to the chip A is appropriately loaded from the map storage block. Next, a inspection image of the chip A? is captured, and the data representing the amount of correction of flare corresponded to the chip A? is loaded from the flare map storage block as the amount of shifting of the edge of the contour of the pattern. The amount of correction is converted, by a correction data generation block which is a correction data generator, into the amount of geometrical correction of pattern which provides correction data. In the comparison block, the images of the geometry of two chips are compared and corrected on the amount of correction of flare generated by a correction data generation block, to thereby judge whether defect is found or not.

  • Patent number: 8413497
    Abstract: When a wastegate valve, which opens and closes an exhaust bypass passage bypassing an exhaust turbine, is open, exhaust gases of respective cylinders bypass the exhaust turbine and pass a sensing point of an air-fuel ratio sensor downstream of the exhaust turbine. Accordingly, the exhaust gases of the respective cylinders can be avoided from being mixed by the exhaust turbine, so an influence of an inter-cylinder variation in an air-fuel ratio due to an inter-cylinder imbalance abnormality becomes apt to appear in an output waveform of the air-fuel ratio sensor. Therefore, existence or nonexistence of the inter-cylinder imbalance abnormality is determined based on the output of the air-fuel ratio sensor when the wastegate valve is open. Eventually, the existence or nonexistence of the inter-cylinder imbalance abnormality can be determined accurately, thereby improving detection accuracy of the inter-cylinder imbalance abnormality.

  • Patent number: 8384888
    Abstract: A method for measuring a shape of a phase defect existing on an exposure mask includes making inspection light incident on the mask, measuring the intensity of light scattered in an angular range in which the width of an scattering area on the phase defect can be predicted, calculating a radius of the phase defect based on the measured scattered light intensity, changing the angular range of scattered light to be measured, remeasuring scattered light intensity in the thus changed angular range, and calculating a scattering cross-sectional area based on the scattered light intensity obtained by remeasurement. A process of remeasuring the scattered light intensity and calculating the scattering cross-sectional area is repeatedly performed until the remeasured scattered light intensity is saturated and the shape of the phase defect is determined by using the calculated radius of the phase defect and each of the calculated scattering cross-sectional areas.

  • Patent number: 8379005
    Abstract: A liquid crystal display device 1 having a liquid crystal display panel and an illuminating means controlled according to the output of the light sensing component. The light sensing component is deployed at the periphery of the TFT substrate's display area DA and uses a thin film transistor as photosensor. A capacitor C is connected between source and drain electrodes SL, DL for such TFT photosensor. One of the capacitor's terminals is connected to a standard voltage source VS via a switch element SW, and the other to the common electrode 26. Voltage that is always lower than the voltage applied to the common electrode by an amount corresponding to a reverse bias voltage is applied to the gate electrode GL for the TFT photosensor. The capacitor's voltage a certain time after the switch element turns off is output.
