  • Patent number: 10317802
    Abstract: A projection lens of an EUV-lithographic projection exposure system with at least two reflective optical elements each comprising a body and a reflective surface for projecting an object field on a reticle onto an image field on a substrate if the projection lens is exposed with an exposure power of EUV light, wherein the bodies of at least two reflective optical elements comprise a material with a temperature dependent coefficient of thermal expansion which is zero at respective zero cross temperatures, and wherein the absolute value of the difference between the zero cross temperatures is more than 6K.

  • Patent number: 9958089
    Abstract: A one-piece lashing support spacer tie for securing two elongate articles or bundles in a parallel, spaced apart relationship is provided with a strap flexibly coupled to a head. The head is provided with a plurality of strap slots and passages through which to receive the strap. One of the strap passages mechanically engages the strap to prevent movement of the strap in at least one direction when in use, such as with a pawl physically engaging one or more serrations or teeth provided on the strap. The other strap slot may mechanically engage the strap in a similar manner, or the other slot may be provided with structure to establish one or more slidable, frictional engagements with the strap when it is inserted therethrough.

  • Publication number: 20130299165
    Abstract: For long-term abandonment and monitoring of well systems, a series of barriers are formed within a formation and within a casing of a well to prevent materials from leaking from the well. Formation barriers are formed within the formation at the location of perforations in the casing and along the annulus. A series of casing barriers and fluid barriers are formed within the casing of the well. One or more sensors are formed within the barriers to monitor the conditions around the barriers over long periods of time. The sensors can be configured to measure the conditions around the one or more barriers during formation of the one or more barriers and over long periods of time after the one or more barriers are formed.

  • Patent number: 6894425
    Abstract: A two-dimensional ultrasound phased array transducer includes an acoustic backing, a first circuit, which may be a flexible circuit disposed over the acoustic backing or a ground plane, an acoustically absorptive interface layer disposed over the flexible circuit, and a piezoelectric layer disposed over the interface layer. A matching layer may be disposed over the piezoelectric layer, and a second circuit, which may be a ground plane or a flexible circuit, may be disposed over the matching layer. The piezoelectric layer and the matching layer are diced by forming kerfs extending through these layers and at least partially into the interface layer. Extending the kerfs into the interface layer reduces cross-talk between elements, electrically isolates the elements, and facilitates manufacturing by reducing the precision required in controlling the depth of the cut.

  • Patent number: 6861511
    Abstract: This invention relates to a substantially purified p100 which is a human neu related protein having a molecular weight in the range from about 97,000 daltons to about 115,000 daltons which corresponds substantially to the extracellular domain of the human neu gene product, said protein being detectable in a biological fluid. In another embodiment this invention relates to assays for detecting this protein. Finally, this invention also concerns monoclonal antibodies which are capable of binding to p100.

  • Patent number: 6475152
    Abstract: A biopsy needle guide in accordance with the invention is configured for attachment to an ultrasound transducer. The biopsy needle guide is arranged in two sections, an inner attachment block and an outer attachment block. The inner attachment block includes (i) a coupler which attaches the inner attachment block to the ultrasound transducer and (ii) a first engagement structure which extends from a surface thereof. The outer attachment block includes a biopsy needle guide through hole and a second engagement structure. The second engagement structure releasably mates with the first engagement structure even when the inner attachment block is covered by a sterile film sheath.

  • Patent number: 6275915
    Abstract: An active-standby dual processor (100) performs only selective memory duplication and does so via hardware (114, 117, 118) and the operating system (109). A page table (217) stores a shadowing flag (203) for each memory page of the active memory (116) of the processor (101) that indicates whether or not the corresponding page is shadowed. When the operating system allocates (302, 402) memory to a process—either statically at creation of the process or dynamically during execution of the process—it checks (304, 404) whether the process program's data statement indicates shadowing or whether the MALLOC request includes a segment selector that indicates shadowing; if so, it sets (306, 406) the allocated page's shadowing flag. When the active processor performs (600, 602) a write of its memory, a page table controller (117) checks (500-508) if the written page's shadowing flag is set.
