  • Publication number: 20150151462
    Abstract: An imprint method using a mold includes the steps of applying on a substrate a resin composed of a mixture of an ultraviolet curable resin cured with ultraviolet light and a luminescent material that undergoes fluorescence or phosphorescence upon receiving ultraviolet light, imprinting the mold into the resin applied to the substrate, curing the resin applied to the substrate using ultraviolet light, releasing the mold from the substrate imprinted with the pattern, and detecting light from any residual resin remaining on the mold. The imprint method can use an imprint apparatus that includes a light-emission detecting unit configured to detect light emitted from the luminescent material. After the mold is released from the resin on the substrate, the detecting step can use the light-emission detecting unit to detect light emitted from any residual resin remaining in a concave and convex portion of the pattern formed on the mold.

  • Publication number: 20120261849
    Abstract: The imprint apparatus of the present invention molds and cures a resin on a substrate using a mold to thereby form a pattern of the cured resin on the substrate. In this case, the resin is a mixture of an ultraviolet curable resin that is cured by receiving ultraviolet light and a luminescent material that fluoresces or phosphoresces by receiving ultraviolet light. The imprint apparatus further includes a light-emission detecting unit configured to detect light emitted from the luminescent material. After the mold is released from the ultraviolet curable resin, which is mixed with the luminescent material, on the substrate, the light-emission detecting unit detects light emitted from a residual resin that remains in a concave and convex portion of the pattern formed on the mold.

  • Patent number: 7899080
    Abstract: In a demultiplexer, a finite search length and a finite jump length are set in a packet header detection section. The packet header detection section skips from a transfer start position of a multiplexed stream according to the set jump length and then searches for a start code included in a packet header which is to be detected through a range designated by the search length. A payload separation section separates payloads included in the multiplexed stream based on detection results of the packet header detection section.

  • Publication number: 20060143453
    Abstract: An objective of the present invention is to obtain a mutual authentication method in which mutual authentication is carried out securely and conveniently. In order to achieve the above objective, in the mutual authentication process, a private key K0, being an initial value, is stored in a client and a server (Pc0, Ps0). The client generates a random number R, calculates secret data C and authentication data A, and transmits the data items to the server (Pc1). The server receives the authentication data A and the secret data C from the client, and generates a random number Q, calculates secret data S, and authentication data B and returns the data items, as well as updating the private key K0 with a private key K1 (Ps1). The client receives from the server the authentication data B and the secret data S, generates the random number R, calculates secret data C2, authentication data A2, and returns the data items to the server, and updates the private key K0 with the private key K1(Pc2).
