An apparatus is provided for detecting transmittance of a trench. The trench is located on an infrared-transmittable material, which can be a wafer. The wafer is obtained after a ditching process. An image of the wafer is fetched. The contrast of the image is greatly enhanced. The contrast-enhanced image is used for automated analysis of the transmittance of the trench. Accuracy of detecting the transmittance is improved. Hence, the present invention uses a simple structure to detect transmittance defects of the trench for ensuring goodness of the wafer.

An optical fiber apparatus and a method of recovering radiation-induced-attenuation (RIA) onto a rare-earth-doped optical fiber under irradiation are provided in this disclosure. A light source is coupled to a rare-earth doped optical fiber. The light source emits a combination of mode locked pulsed light and non-mode locked quasi-continuous-wave light. The mode locked pulsed light are used to recover RIA onto the rare-earth doped optical fiber in real time, and the non-mode locked light are used to pump the rare-earth doped optical fiber as a gain medium. Each pulsed duration of the mode locked pulsed light is much shorter than operation duration of the non-mode locked light, such that an instantaneous power of the mode locked pulsed light exceeds a saturated pumping power required for the rare-earth doped optical fiber, so as to effectively elevate the core temperature of rare-earth doped fiber to achieve a confined photo-annealed recovery of RIA onto rare-earth doped fibers.

The present invention provides methods and designs of enclosed-channel reactor system for manufacturing catalysts or supports. Both of the configuration designs force the gaseous precursors and purge gas flow through the channel surface of reactor. The precursors will transform to thin film or particle catalysts or supports under adequate reaction temperature, working pressure and gas concentration. The reactor body is either sealed or enclosed for isolation from atmosphere. Another method using super ALD cycles is also proposed to grow alloy catalysts or supports with controllable concentration. The catalysts prepared by the method and system in the present invention are noble metals, such as platinum, palladium, rhodium, ruthenium, iridium and osmium, or transition metals such as iron, silver, cobalt, nickel and tin, while supports are silicon oxide, aluminum oxide, zirconium oxide, cerium oxide or magnesium oxide, or refractory metals, which can be chromium, molybdenum, tungsten or tantalum.

An active photocatalytic reactor configured to process biological culturing water with an accelerated process. Water to be used in a biological culturing system is stabilized with pollutants in the water reduced. The active photocatalytic reactor is less affected by outside environment while having faster activating speed. The active photocatalytic reactor can further be combined with a traditional filter to form a serial or parallel connection for more effectively purifying the culturing water with damage to the whole system avoided.
