|20110041563||Washing machine and outer tub supporting structure thereof - Disclosed herein are a washing machine which minimizes the number of dampers and effectively prevents vibration, and an outer tub supporting structure thereof. The washing machine includes a housing forming an external appearance of the washing machine, an outer tub provided in the housing to store water, an inner tub rotatably mounted within the outer tub, a driving device including a rotary shaft passing through the outer tub and connected to the inner tub to rotate the inner tub, a bearing surrounding the rotary shaft and fixed to the outer tub to prevent rotation of the outer tub during rotation of the rotary shaft, a bearing housing formed on the outer tub such that the bearing is mounted within the bearing housing, and a damping unit provided with a first end supporting the bearing housing and a second end fixed to the washing machine housing to reduce vibration of the outer tub.||02-24-2011|
|20090239374||Methods of Forming Metal Interconnect Structures on Semiconductor Substrates Using Oxygen-Removing Plasmas and Interconnect Structures Formed Thereby - Methods of forming devices include forming a first electrically insulating layer having a metal interconnection therein, on a substrate and then forming a first electrically insulating barrier layer on an upper surface of the metal interconnection and on the first electrically insulating layer. The first electrically insulating barrier layer is exposed to a plasma that penetrates the first electrically insulating barrier and removes oxygen from an upper surface of the metal interconnection. The barrier layer may have a thickness in a range from about 5 Å to about 50 Å and the plasma may be a hydrogen-containing plasma that converts oxygen on the upper surface of the metal interconnection to water.||09-24-2009|
