  • Publication number: 20050127514
    Abstract: In a multilevel microelectronic integrated circuit, air comprises permanent line level dielectric and ultra low-K materials are via level dielectric. The air is supplied to line level subsequent to removal of sacrificial material by clean thermal decomposition and assisted diffusion of byproducts through porosities in the IC structure. Optionally, air is also included within porosities in the via level dielectric. By incorporating air to the extent produced in the invention, intralevel and interlevel dielectric values are minimized.

  • Patent number: 6748275
    Abstract: An apparatus and method in which the portions of the labyrinth associated with the labyrinthine sense and/or the nerves associated therewith are stimulated to perform at least one of the following functions: augment or control a patient's respiratory function, open the patient's airway, induce sleep, and/or counteract vertigo. In one embodiment, the vestibular stimulating system of the present invention includes 1) a stimulation element that performs the actual stimulation of the tissue, 2) a sensor to detect a physiological condition of the patient, and 3) a power/control unit that receives the signals provided by the sensor and causes stimulation energy to be provided to the stimulation element at an appropriate timing, level, pattern, and/or frequency to achieve the desired function. However, the present invention also contemplates eliminating the sensor in favor of applying a predetermined pattern of stimulation to the patient.

  • Patent number: 6254135
    Abstract: An album construction for holding and displaying printed folded cards comprising (a) a rectangular support having a center portion and two outer portions, said center portion being longitudinally shorter than the two outer portions and thereby forming two bounded slots at each end of the center portion; (b) an elastic cord having both ends attached to said rectangular support and being of sufficient length to encircle or wrap the center portion of the rectangular support at least twice and thereby produce a series of at least two taut elastic strands located immediately adjacent to each other whereby the fold of the printed cards may be held between one of the taut elastic cord materials and the rectangular support; and (c) an album cover having a central spine and two outer covers, said rectangular support affixed to the spine.
