|20100255195||APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR MOVING A SUBSTRATE - A substrate holder and method for using it to move a substrate. The holder comprises a frame having an inner periphery defining a first opening for receiving the substrate, and a shoulder projecting laterally inward from the inner periphery of the frame for supporting the substrate in the first frame opening. The shoulder has an inner periphery defining a second opening smaller than the first opening for receiving a substrate support. The holder and a substrate therein is moved to a position above the substrate support and then lowered to a position in which the shoulder of the holder is positioned below a top surface of the substrate support and the substrate is deposited on the top surface of the substrate support.||10-07-2010|
|20100221439||APPARATUS FOR FORMING FILMS ON SUBSTRATES - A doctor blade assembly for use in combination with apparatus for forming a film on a substrate. The doctor blade assembly includes a doctor blade to be mounted on a programmable robot. The doctor blade has a bottom face and spacers at opposite ends of the body of the doctor blade extending a predetermined distance down below the bottom face of the body for contacting a substrate and spacing the bottom face from the substrate. The spacers are adjustable relative to the doctor blade for adjusting the predetermined distance according to the thickness of film to be formed on the substrate. Other aspects and methods are also disclosed.||09-02-2010|
|20100184931||METHOD FOR PRODUCING VERY-HIGH OR ULTRA-HIGH MOLECULAR WEIGHT POLYETHYLENE - The field of the invention relates generally to a method for preparing very-high or ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene. More particularly, the present invention related to a method of preparing very-high or ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene using a supported catalyst comprising a support, an activator and a metal-ligand complex, as well as the catalyst itself. The present invention additionally relates to a method of using a supported catalyst comprising a support, an activator and co-supported metal-ligand complexes to obtain a bi-modal molecular weight distribution of polyethylene.||07-22-2010|
|20100048841||PHENOL-HETEROCYCLIC LIGANDS, METAL COMPLEXES, AND THEIR USES AS CATALYSTS - Ligands, compositions, and metal-ligand complexes that incorporate phenol-heterocyclic compounds are disclosed that are useful in the catalysis of transformations such as the polymerization of monomers into polymers. The catalysts have high performance characteristics, including high comonomer incorporation into ethylene/olefin copolymers, where such olefins are for example, 1-octene, propylene or styrene. The catalysts particularly polymerize styrene to form polystyrene.||02-25-2010|
