Frequent sequence enumeration device, method, and recording medium
In order to efficiently carry out a frequency calculation process, a frequent sequence enumeration device comprises: a suffix array storage unit which, when all suffixes for sequence data are arranged in dictionary order, stores a suffix array whereby it is possible to reference a location on the sequence data from a location on a dictionary; a suffix array frequency calculation unit which, taking a set of locations on the suffix array as input, counts the number of times a character is included in the suffixes referenced by the suffix array, using the fact that the suffixes are sequenced; and a suffix array mapping unit which, taking a set of locations in the suffix array and a specified character as input, returns an appearance location on the suffix array with respect to the inputted character by adding one to the value within the suffix array and referencing an inverted array of the suffix array.

Wafer-to-wafer oxide fusion bonding
Oxide-oxide fusion bonding of wafers that includes performing a van der Waals force bonding process with a chuck having at least a flat central zone and an outer annular zone lower than the central zone, an edge portion of a mounted wafer is biased towards the outer annular zone. The van der Waals bonding wave is disrupted at the outer annular zone, causing an edge gap. A thermocompression bonding process is performed that includes heating the bonded wafers to a temperature sufficient to initiate condensation of silanol groups between the bonding surfaces, reducing the atmospheric pressure to cause degassing from between the wafers, applying a compression force to the wafers with flat chucks so as to substantially eliminate the edge gap, and performing a permanent anneal bonding process.

Bulk monolithic nano-heterostructures and method of making the same
A new Enhanced High Pressure Sintering (EHPS) method for making three-dimensional fully dense nanostructures and nano-heterostructures formed from nanoparticle powders, and three-dimensional fully dense nanostructures and nano-heterostructures formed using that method. A nanoparticle powder is placed into a reaction chamber and is treated at an elevated temperature under a gas flow to produce a cleaned powder. The cleaned powder is formed into a low density green compact which is then sintered at a temperature below conventional sintering temperatures to produce a fully dense bulk material having a retained nanostructure or nano-heterostructure corresponding to the nanostructure of the constituent nanoparticles. All steps are performed without exposing the nanoparticle powder to the ambient.
