  • Patent number: 9447505
    Abstract: Exposed copper regions on a semiconductor substrate can be etched by a wet etching solution comprising (i) one or more complexing agents selected from the group consisting of bidentate, tridentate, and quadridentate complexing agents; and (ii) an oxidizer, at a pH of between about 5 and 12. In many embodiments, the etching is substantially isotropic and occurs without visible formation of insoluble species on the surface of copper. The etching is useful in a number of processes in semiconductor fabrication, including for partial or complete removal of copper overburden, for planarization of copper surfaces, and for forming recesses in copper-filled damascene features. Examples of suitable etching solutions include solutions comprising a diamine (e.g., ethylenediamine) and/or a triamine (e.g., diethylenetriamine) as bidentate and tridentate complexing agents respectively and hydrogen peroxide as an oxidizer.

  • Patent number: 8273442
    Abstract: A welding arrangement for plastic components includes a base member, a primary member abutting onto the base member and provided with a first positioning feature that engages a corresponding first positioning feature provided on the base member. A secondary member is vibration welded to the base member so as to at least partly interpose the primary member between the secondary member and base member. Because the welding is performed while the primary member is properly positioned relative to the base member on account of the first positioning feature cooperating with the corresponding first positioning feature, the positional precision of the primary member is ensured. The primary member may be additionally provided with a second positioning feature that engages a corresponding second positioning feature provided on the secondary member, so as to permit positional adjustment between them in a prescribed direction corresponding to a direction of movement of the vibration welding.

  • Publication number: 20120227902
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing an elastic and resilient film, to be applied to a surface of an endless moving handrail, includes providing a first layer having sufficient resilience to accommodate strains occurring on the surface of the endless moving handrail, and including a barrier coating. The barrier coating includes nano-clay dispersed in an elastomeric material selected from one of neoprene, nitrile rubber, and butyl rubber. A substantially transparent layer is also provided. The first layer and the substantially transparent layer are laminated together. Optionally, a second layer is arranged between the first layer and the substantially transparent layer. The barrier coating substantially retards the transmission of staining chemicals blooming from the surface of the endless moving handrail.

  • Patent number: 8246776
    Abstract: Disclosed are a method for manufacturing a crank for a bicycle by bonding structural members to each other with an adhesive comprising; a step for applying the adhesive in a line-like or dot-like form in correspondence with an intervention region of the adhesive; a step for disposing a fabric in correspondence with the intervention region of the adhesive; a step for expanding the adhesive applied in a line-like or dot-like form in the fabric; and a step for bonding the structural members to each other with the adhesive expanded in the fabric, and a crank for a bicycle manufactured by the method. When the crank for a bicycle is manufactured by bonding the structural members to each other with the adhesive, the adhesive can be applied easily at a high accuracy and a good repeatability, variations of application condition and amount of used adhesive can be suppressed, and variation in quality can be suppressed.

  • Patent number: 8241448
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method of bonding two members together utilizing a stack of solid film adhesive and a layer of solid film adhesive, both disposed between the members. A pressure-applying device may be utilized to apply low pressure to force the members together. The pressure may force the stack to compress and expand in varying directions in order to substantially remove air-bubbles between the layer and one of the members. A heating device may be utilized to change the layer and the stack into liquid states in order to bond the members together with a void-free bond-line.
