  • Publication number: 20090130467
    Abstract: A transfer component and a laser-assisted transfer system using the same are provided. The laser-assisted transfer system comprises: a multimode laser source; a beam transformer; a scanner module; and a transfer component. The beam transformer is capable of transforming a multimode laser beam generated from the multimode laser source into a rectangular beam and then feeding the rectangular beam into the scanner module to form a large-area scanning laser beam. The transfer component comprises a conductive thin film and an insulating thin film. The conductive thin film receives a scanning laser beam from the scanner module and is ablated while the ablation of the conductive thin film is transferred onto the insulating thin film. In an exemplary embodiment, the transfer component comprising a metal thin film and an organic thin film is used for enabling the system to perform large-area pattern transfer with high efficiency.

  • Patent number: 7032758
    Abstract: A workpiece holder is provided inside a clean container such that when covering a housing of the clean container on a base of the clean container, the vertical slide of the workpiece holder is stopped at the base, and a locating member is continuously lowered with the housing, thereby causing the vertical slide to slide upwardly along the locating member and to turn a link, and then causing a holder member to be driven by the link to force a thrust face against workpieces, and therefore the workpieces are pushed into position in a cassette on the base. Because the vertical slide does not displace relative to the base when covering the housing on the base, neither friction nor particles are produced, and workpieces are well protected against contamination.
