Field of Use
The Parties are developing polymers for use in LEP displays, which are organic light-emitting displays (OLEDs).
OLED displays are expected to be deployed in instrument panels and portable electronics such as mobile phones and personal digital assistants, and eventually larger displays for personal computers and consumer products, where they could overtake liquid-crystal display (LCD) technology in the future.

As an emissive display, LEPs need no backlight, which means they can be thinner and lighter than LCDs, as well as more power-efficient. LEP displays are also brighter with richer color, offering sharp, high-contrast images that can easily be viewed from acute angles. Additionally, LEPs in liquid form are unique in that they can be ink-jet printed on glass and plastic, which is a technology advantage that could significantly change the way displays are produced and open new markets and opportunities.

The field of use is semiconductors and related devices.

Traditionally, surface cleaning has been accomplished using solvent-based methods, technologies which have been available for more than 100 years. Increasing concerns about ground water and air pollution, greenhouse gases, and related health and safety issues have severely restricted the use of common volatile organic solvents, and even many of the recently-adapted, less hazardous chemical substitutes.  Plasmas have been used extensively in a wide variety of industrial and high technology applications, from semiconductor fabrication to coatings of reflective films for window panels and compact disks. Plasmas ranging in pressure from high vacuum (<0.1 mTorr) to several Torr are most common, and have been used for film deposition, reactive ion etching, sputtering and other forms of surface modification. The primary advantage of plasma cleaning is that it is an 'all-dry' process, generates minimal effluent, does not require hazardous pressures, and is applicable to a wide variety of vacuum-compatible materials, including silicon, metals, glass, and ceramics.

Japanese Licensor hereby grants to Licensee the exclusive License under the Patents, Technical Information and Intellectual Property Rights to manufacture, use, offer for sale, sell, import and/or lease the Products in the territory; provided, however, Licensee agrees not to manufacture any of the three Products listed in this Agreement at any time on or prior to June 30, 2006; provided further, however, that Licensee may start on the effective date to manufacture, use, offer for sale, sell, import and/or lease in the territory all subsystems related to any Products, including, but not limited to, the Nison Vesper submodule. For the avoidance of doubt, Licensor acknowledges and agrees that the License granted to Licensee under this Agreement includes the right of the Licensee to subLicense to any purchaser of the Products the right to use (but not manufacture) the Patents, Technical Information and Intellectual Property Rights.
License Property
Licensor was incorporated to, among other things, manufacture and distribute certain products and systems of Licensee in Japan in accordance with a Shareholders Agreement dated June 5, 1991.  This license is a result of Licensor buying a portion of the business of a semiconductor manufacturing equipment business and licensing back rights to Licensee.

The parties agree that the definition of Products includes subsystems related to the products (e.g. the Nison Vesper submodule) only to the extent such subsystems are incorporated in Products sold by Licensee to end-users of the Products and not to original equipment manufacturers.  Three products are covered by this agreement Spin Processor CENOTE, a single wafer wet station; Best, a wafer backside3 etcher, and Wet Station, an immersion process system.
