Beam Suntory, Inc. is an American manufacturer of spirits headquartered in Deerfield, Illinois. It is a subsidiary of Suntory Holdings of Osaka, Japan.The company's principal products include bourbon whiskey, tequila, Scotch whisky, Irish whiskey, Canadian whisky, vodka, cognac, rum, cordials, and ready-to-drink pre-mixed cocktails.As a distinct entity, the company was established as Beam Inc. on October 3, 2011, from the remainder of the Fortune Brands holding company after it sold and spun off various other product lines to form a business focused exclusively on spirits and directly related products.On Monday, January 13, 2014, Suntory announced a deal to buy Beam Inc. for about $13.6 billion. The acquisition was completed on April 30, 2014, for a final cost of about $16 billion – when it was also announced that Beam would be renamed as "Beam Suntory".

A finFET is formed having a fin with a source region, a drain region, and a channel region between the source and drain regions. The fin is etched on a semiconductor wafer. A gate stack is formed having an insulating layer in direct contact with the channel region and a conductive gate material in direct contact with the insulating layer. The source and drain regions are etched leaving the channel region of the fin. Epitaxial semiconductor is grown on the sides of the channel region that were adjacent the source and drain regions to form a source epitaxy region and a drain epitaxy region. The source and drain epitaxy regions are doped in-situ while growing the epitaxial semiconductor.

In an exemplary process for lower dose rate ion implantation of a work piece, an ion beam may be generated using an ion source and an extraction manipulator. The extraction manipulator may be positioned at a gap distance from an exit aperture of the ion source. A current of the ion beam exiting the extraction manipulator may be maximized when the extraction manipulator is positioned at an optimal gap distance from the exit aperture. The gap distance at which the extraction manipulator is positioned from the exit aperture may differ from the optimal gap distance by at least 10 percent. A first potential may be applied to a first set of electrodes. An x-dimension of the ion beam may increase as the ion beam passes through the first set of electrodes. The work piece may be positioned in the ion beam to implant ions into the work piece.

A plasma-based material modification system for material modification of a work piece may include a plasma source chamber coupled to a process chamber. A support structure, configured to support the work piece, may be disposed within the process chamber. The plasma source chamber may include a first plurality of magnets, a second plurality of magnets, and a third plurality of magnets that surround a plasma generation region within the plasma source chamber. The plasma source chamber may be configured to generate a plasma having ions within the plasma generation region. The third plurality of magnets may be configured to confine a majority of electrons of the plasma having energy greater than 10 eV within the plasma generation region while allowing ions from the plasma to pass through the third plurality of magnets into the process chamber for material modification of the work piece.

A deceleration apparatus capable of decelerating a short spot beam or a tall ribbon beam is disclosed. In either case, effects tending to degrade the shape of the beam profile are controlled. Caps to shield the ion beam from external potentials are provided. Electrodes whose position and potentials are adjustable are provided, on opposite sides of the beam, to ensure that the shape of the decelerating and deflecting electric fields does not significantly deviate from the optimum shape, even in the presence of the significant space-charge of high current low-energy beams of heavy ions.

A beam control assembly to shape a ribbon beam of ions for ion implantation includes a first bar, second bar, first coil of windings of electrical wire, second coil of windings of electrical wire, first electrical power supply, and second electrical power supply. The first coil is disposed on the first bar. The first coil is the only coil disposed on the first bar. The second bar is disposed opposite the first bar with a gap defined between the first and second bars. The ribbon beam travels between the gap. The second coil is disposed on the second bar. The second coil is the only coil disposed on the second bar. The first electrical power supply is connected to the first coil without being electrically connected to any other coil. The second electrical power supply is connected to the second coil without being electrically connected to any other coil.
