    Abstract: A process for controlling the placement of alpha olefins within an ethylene copolymer. The process involves polymerizing ethylene and an alpha olefin in the gas phase while changing the breadth of control over the molar ratio of ethylene to comonomer and/or hydrogen which is being fed to a polymerization reactor. At tighter control breadths, the alpha olefin may be incorporated mainly in the higher molecular weight portions of the ethylene copolymer. At looser control breadths, the alpha olefin may be incorporated more evenly throughout the ethylene copolymer or mainly in the lower molecular weight portions of the ethylene copolymer.

  • Patent number: 9123705
    Abstract: Vias (holes) are formed in a wafer or a dielectric layer. A low viscosity conductive ink, containing microscopic metal particles, is deposited over the top surface of the wafer to cover the vias. An external force is applied to urge the ink into the vias, including an electrical force, a magnetic force, a centrifugal force, a vacuum, or a suction force for outgassing the air in the vias. Any remaining ink on the surface is removed by a squeegee, spinning, an air knife, or removal of an underlying photoresist layer. The ink in the vias is heated to evaporate the liquid and sinter the remaining metal particles to form a conductive path in the vias. The resulting wafer may be bonded to one or more other wafers and singulated to form a 3-D module.

    Abstract: A multilayer film comprises a layer consisting essentially of a fluorinated copolymer resin film and a layer consisting essentially of a blend of two ethylene copolymers. The first ethylene copolymer comprises copolymerized units of ethylene, optionally a first olefin having the formula CH2?C(R1)CO2R2, and a second olefin having the formula CH2?C(R3)COOH. The second ethylene copolymer consists essentially of copolymerized units of ethylene, optionally a first olefin having the formula CH2?C(R1)CO2R2, and a third olefin having the formula CH2?C(R4)D. R1, R3 and R4 represent hydrogen or an alkyl group; R2 represents an alkyl group; and D represents a moiety containing an epoxy group. The multilayer film is useful as an integrated frontsheet or backsheet for photovoltaic modules. Methods for preparing the multilayer film and the photovoltaic modules are also included.

  • Patent number: 8506751
    Abstract: An adhesion bond between a metallic surface layer and a second surface is formed by treating the layers with a material comprising sulphur-containing molecules. The sulphur-containing molecules are applied as a surface treatment of the surfaces, so that the sulphur-containing molecules act as a coupling agent to bond chemically to both substrates form nanometer-sized structures on the surfaces. The nanometer-sized structures are incorporated into a self-assembly interlayer in between the surfaces, with the interlayer forming a bond to both surfaces.
