  • Patent number: 11355692
    Abstract: A nanomechanical magnetoelectric antenna includes a thin film heterostructure that has a magnetic element and a piezoelectric element. The heterostructure is suspended on a substrate and is capable of resonating at acoustic resonance frequencies. In the transmission mode of the antenna, oscillating mechanical strain produced by voltage-induced acoustic waves is transferred to the thin film heterostructure through strain mediated magnetoelectric coupling. This gives rise to magnetization oscillation or magnetic current that radiates electromagnetic waves at the acoustic resonance frequencies. In the receiving mode, the heterostructure senses magnetic components of electromagnetic waves arriving at the antenna, converting these into a piezoelectric voltage output.

  • Patent number: 11315784
    Abstract: There is provided a technique of forming an insulating film containing silicon oxide. A coating solution containing polysilazane is applied onto a wafer W, the solvent of the coating solution is volatilized, and the coating film is irradiated with ultraviolet rays in nitrogen atmosphere before performing a curing process. Dangling bonds are generated in silicon which is a pre-hydrolyzed site in polysilazane. Therefore, the energy for hydrolysis is reduced, and unhydrolyzed sites are reduced even when the temperature of the curing process is 350° C. Since efficient dehydration condensation occurs, the crosslinking rate is improved, and a dense (good-quality) insulation film is formed. By forming a protective film on the surface of the coating film to which ultraviolet rays irradiated, the reaction of dangling bonds prior to the curing process is suppressed.

  • Patent number: 11059736
    Abstract: A method of making a glass sheet comprises laminating a high CTE core glass to a low CTE clad glass at high temperatures and allowing the laminate to cool creating compressive stress in the clad glass, and then ion exchanging the laminate to increase the compressive stress in the outer near surface regions of the clad glass. The core glass may include ions that exchange with ion in the clad glass to increase the compressive stress in inner surface regions of the clad glass adjacent to the clad glass/core glass interfaces. The glass laminate may be formed and laminated using a fusion forming and laminating process and fusion formable and ion exchangeable glass compositions.

  • Patent number: 10930475
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to processing chamber seasoning layers having a graded composition. In one example, the seasoning layer is a boron-carbon-nitride (BCN) film. The BCN film may have a greater composition of boron at the base of the film. As the BCN film is deposited, the boron concentration may approach zero, while the relative carbon and nitrogen concentration increases. The BCN film may be deposited by initially co-flowing a boron precursor, a carbon precursor, and a nitrogen precursor. After a first period of time, the flow rate of the boron precursor may be reduced. As the flow rate of boron precursor is reduced, RF power may be applied to generate a plasma during deposition of the seasoning layer.
