  • Patent number: 10303227
    Abstract: Thermal energy exposed at the outer surface of an information handling system housing is managed by spreading the thermal energy across the housing X and Y axes while restricting heat transfer from the housing at the Z axis. For example, a graphene outer surface couples to an aerogel substrate strengthened by a carbon fiber laminate. The graphene spreads thermal energy that escapes through the housing across the housing outer surface to limit the impact of thermal energy at any particular location, such as proximate to the location of a processor.

  • Patent number: 9686846
    Abstract: An extreme ultraviolet light source device includes a raw material supplying mechanism. The raw material supplying mechanism includes a disk-shaped rotor, a motor for causing the rotor to rotate, a cover-shaped structure surrounding the rotor via a gap, and a first reservoir provided inside the cover-shaped structure for reserving a liquid high temperature plasma raw material. When the rotor rotates, a portion of the surface on the rotor becomes coated with the liquid high temperature plasma raw material. A portion of the cover-shaped structure has an aperture exposing that surface of the rotor which coated with the high temperature plasma raw material. The high temperature plasma raw material is irradiated with an energy beam from an energy beam supply device through the aperture, and generates EUV radiation.
