  • Publication number: 20200332943
    Abstract: An apparatus includes a first portion and a second portion. The first portion includes a first front side wall, a first rear side wall, a top wall, and at least one pivotal pin structure extending from the first rear side wall. The at least one pivotal pin structure comprises a base, a shaft, and a head having a non-circular cross-sectional shape. The second portion includes a second front side wall, a second rear side wall, a bottom wall, and at least one pin holder extending from the second rear side wall. The at least one pin holder defines an opening for accepting the head of the at least one pivotal pin structure at an alignment. The head of the at least one pivotal pin structure extends through the opening. The first portion and the second portion are pivotally movable between an open configuration and a closed container configuration.

  • Publication number: 20190035611
    Abstract: In an embodiment, a system includes: a chamber; and a magnetic assembly contained within the chamber. The magnetic assembly comprises: an inner magnetic portion comprising first magnets; and an outer magnetic portion comprising second magnets. At least two adjacent magnets, of either the first magnets or the second magnets, have different vertical displacements, and the magnetic assembly is configured to rotate around an axis to generate an electromagnetic field that moves ions toward a target region within the chamber.
