  • Publication number: 20220301863
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a semiconductor device includes: (a) generating a reactive species by plasma-exciting a process gas containing oxygen and hydrogen; and (b) supplying the reactive species to a substrate and oxidizing surfaces of a silicon film and a silicon nitride film formed to be exposed respectively on the substrate, wherein a ratio of oxygen and hydrogen contained in the process gas is adjusted such that a ratio of a thickness of a second oxide layer formed by oxidizing the surface of the silicon nitride film to a thickness of a first oxide layer formed by oxidizing the surface of the silicon film in (b) becomes a predetermined thickness ratio.

  • Patent number: 11429036
    Abstract: A toner container includes a container body, an opening, a cover, a toner discharge port, a shutter, a cylindrical structure, protrusions, and an identifier. The shutter is attached to the cover and includes a main shutter covering the toner discharge port. The main shutter moves between a closed position to close the toner discharge port and an open position to open the toner discharge port. The protrusions are on both sides of the cover and protrude in a direction orthogonal to a toner container mounting direction. The identifier is on the cover to indicate a toner color. The cylindrical structure's leading end is downstream of leading ends of the protrusions in the mounting direction. The main shutter's leading end is downstream of the protrusions' leading ends in the mounting direction when the main shutter is in the closed position. The protrusions are downstream of the identifier in the mounting direction.
