  • Patent number: 10931158
    Abstract: A plurality of magnet holes are arranged in a circumferential direction. Void portions are provided at both ends in the circumferential direction of each magnet hole. Flow holes penetrating in the axial direction are formed, between the magnet holes adjacent in the circumferential direction, on an inner side in a radial direction with respect to the magnet holes. Each core has: first groove portions via which the void portions and the flow holes communicate with each other; and second groove portions via which the void portions and the outer circumferences of the cores communicate with each other and which serve as discharge ports. The end plates have: first holes through which the flow holes are exposed and which serve as intake ports; and tab portions which are located on downstream sides in a rotation direction of the first holes and which assist air intake.

  • Publication number: 20210036004
    Abstract: An alternating stack of insulating layers and sacrificial material layers is formed over a substrate. A memory opening is formed through the alternating stack. A memory film including a silicon nitride layer and a tunneling dielectric layer is formed in the memory opening, and an opening is formed through the memory film. A chemical oxide layer is formed on a physically exposed surface of an underlying semiconductor material portion. A silicon nitride ring can be formed by selectively growing a silicon nitride material from an annular silicon nitride layer portion of the silicon nitride layer while suppressing deposition of the silicon nitride material on the tunneling dielectric layer and on the chemical oxide layer. A vertical semiconductor channel can be formed by depositing a continuous semiconductor material layer on the underlying semiconductor material portion and the tunneling dielectric layer and on the silicon nitride ring.
