  • Patent number: 8951342
    Abstract: A chemical vapor deposition method for producing a porous organosilica glass film comprising: introducing into a vacuum chamber gaseous reagents including at least one precursor selected from the group consisting of an organosilane and an organosiloxane, and a porogen that is distinct from the precursor; applying energy to the gaseous reagents in the vacuum chamber to induce reaction of the gaseous reagents to deposit a preliminary film on the substrate, wherein the preliminary film contains the porogen; and removing from the preliminary film substantially all of the porogen to provide the porous film with pores and a dielectric constant less than 2.6.

  • Publication number: 20150020878
    Abstract: An anti-reflective coating film is formed from a coating solution composition that includes a silane-based precursor. When measured via Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) Spectroscopy using a wavelength of 1064 nm, the coating solution composition exhibits a peak intensity ratio IB/IA and a peak intensity ratio IC/IA of equal to or greater than 0.47, respectively. The peak intensity IB is in a range of about 930 cm?1 to about 960 cm?1, the peak intensity IA is in a range of about 1110 cm?1 to about 1130 cm?1, and the peak intensity IC is in a range of about 1020 cm?1 to about 1050 cm?1. A solar cell including the anti-reflective coating film, and a method of predicting the strength of the anti-reflective coating film for the solar cell have been disclosed.
