Method for fabricating a circuit
A method for fabricating a circuit, by defining a first set of resist features on a substrate and corresponding to a first mask layout, followed by defining a second set of resist features on the substrate corresponding to a second mask layout, wherein the second set adds to the first set for rectifying an error in either mask layout. In another aspect, the method is by defining a first set of resist features on a substrate and corresponding to a first mask layout that has an error, etching the substrate while the first set protects selected regions, defining a second set of resist features on the substrate and corresponding to a second mask layout, followed by etching the substrate to selectively remove portions of the selected regions for rectifying the error..

Method for recovering scandium from intermediate products formed in the hydrometallurgical processing of laterite ores
The invention provides a method for recovering scandium from scandium-containing intermediate products, formed during hydrometallurgical processing of scandium-containing feed materials, including: (a) leaching of the scandium-containing intermediate products with a suitable acid at a controlled ph selected to maximize scandium extraction and minimize the co-extraction of impurities, (b) solid/liquid separation, to obtain a scandium-containing leach solution; (c) selective precipitation of the scandium at a controlled ph from the scandium-containing leach solution using a suitable base, (d) solid/liquid separation, to obtain an upgraded scandium concentrate and a barren solution for return to the hydrometallurgical process. A further upgraded scandium concentrate can be obtained by (e) alkaline leaching of the upgraded scandium concentrate for additional removal of impurities, and (f) solid/liquid separation to obtain a further upgraded scandium concentrate and impurities-containing base solution..

Suppression of stimulated brillouin scattering in higher-order- mode optical fiber amplifiers
An hom-based optical fiber amplifier is selectively doped within its core region to minimize the presence of dopants in those portions of the core where the unwanted lower-order modes (particularly, the fundamental mode) of the signal reside. The reduction (elimination) of the gain medium from these portions of the core minimizes (perhaps to the point of elimination) limits the amount of amplification impressed upon the backward-propagating stokes wave.
