  • Publication number: 20200350196
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a composite sintered body includes a step (Step S11) of molding mixed powder in which Al2O3, SiC, and MgO are mixed, into a green body having a predetermined shape and a step (Step S12) of generating a composite sintered body by sintering the green body. Then, in Step S11, the ratio of SiC to the mixed powder is not lower than 4.0 weight percentage and not higher than 13.0 weight percentage. Further, the purity of Al2O3 in Step S11 is not lower than 99.9%. It is thereby possible to suppress the abnormal grain growth of Al2O3 and suitably manufacture a composite sintered body having high relative dielectric constant and withstand voltage, and low tan ?.

  • Patent number: 10771032
    Abstract: To improve the Q value of a piezoelectric thin-film element in a state in which unnecessary vibration is suppressed, an acoustic reflection film (104) is affixed to a first electrode (102), a piezoelectric single-crystal substrate (101) is thinned by polishing from the other surface (101b) of the piezoelectric single-crystal substrate (101), such that the first electrode (102) and piezoelectric thin film (105) are piled on the piezoelectric single-crystal substrate (101). In this polishing, a pressure (polishing pressure) to the surface (101b) during polishing in an electrode formation region where the first electrode (102) is formed differs from that in a non-electrode formation region around the electrode formation region. Consequently, the electrode formation region of the piezoelectric thin film (105), where the first electrode (102) is formed, is made thinner than the non-electrode formation region around the electrode formation region.

  • Patent number: 10684952
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a disk medium rotates in a first rotation state when access is given, and rotates in a second rotation state lower in rotation number than the first rotation state when access is not given. A controller receives, from a host device, a read command for reading first data stored in a first buffer, when the disk medium is in the second rotation state. The controller transmits the first data from the first buffer to the host device, without causing a shift into the first rotation state, and then shifts the disk medium into the first rotation state after completion of execution of the read command.
