  • Patent number: 10861720
    Abstract: A continuous lighting lamp irradiates a semiconductor wafer held by a quartz susceptor with light from below to perform preliminary heating, and then irradiation of a flash of light is performed by a flash lamp from above. A light absorption ring is provided so as to be close to a peripheral portion of the semiconductor wafer held by the susceptor. The light absorption ring absorbs infrared light and transmits visible light through itself. During preliminary heating, the light absorption ring absorbs light emitted from the continuous lighting lamp to be increased in temperature so that heat radiated from the peripheral portion of the wafer is compensated to cause in-plane temperature distribution of the semiconductor wafer to be uniform. Meanwhile, the flash of light is transmitted through the light absorption ring, so that the light absorption ring is prevented from being damaged by the irradiation of the flash of light.

    Abstract: A THz quantum cascade laser is used to investigate a target by directing a first beam of laser radiation from the laser at the target to thereby produce a second beam of laser radiation by interaction of the first beam with the target. Self-mixing of the first and second beams occurs within the laser and causes variations in a signal such as the operating voltage of the laser. An operating parameter of the laser that affects the interaction of the first beam with, the target is varied. The operating voltage is monitored and processed to determine phase and amplitude changes associated with material properties of the target. Consequently in one embodiment the invention provides for processing the variations in the signal to produce various images of the target.

    Abstract: A display may have a first stage such as a color liquid crystal display stage and a second stage such as a monochromatic liquid crystal display stage that are coupled in tandem so that light from a backlight passes through both stages. The pixel pitch of the second stage may be greater than the pixel pitch of the first stage to ease alignment tolerances and reduce image processing complexity. The first stage may be provided with straight black masking strips, whereas the second stage may be provided with angled zigzagging black masking strips. The angle of the zigzagging black masking strips and the ratio of the pixel pitch of the second stage to that of the first stage may be selected to maximize optical transmittance while minimizing Moire effects.
