We will also instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation but to collect no cash deposits of estimated CVDs on shipments of the subject merchandise by the companies listed above entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of review. For the companies for which this review is rescinded, countervailing duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated countervailing duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, during the period January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2012, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.2129(c)(1)(i). For all non-reviewed companies, we will instruct CBP to continue to collect cash deposits at the most recent company-specific or country-wide rate applicable to the company. Accordingly, the cash deposit rates that will be applied to companies covered by this order, but not examined in this review, are those established in the most recently completed administrative proceeding for each company. The cash deposit rates for all companies not covered by this review are not changed by the results of this review, and remain in effect until further notice. Return or Destruction of Proprietary Information This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3).

Intended Use: The instrument is used to produce high-quality frozen-hydrated biological specimens for observation in cryo-TEM, to determine the structure of macromolecular biological complexes. It is equipped with an environmental chamber and fully automated control of blotting and plunge-freezing conditions. The computerized control of the humidity/temperature environment specimen chamber and blotting/freezing conditions is essential to reproducibly obtaining high quality samples for TEM, free of freezing artifacts.

Instrument: SUNALE R–150 Atomic Layer Deposition Reactor. Manufacturer: Picosun, Finland. Intended Use: The instrument will be used to obtain ultrathin dielectric films with full coverage of semiconductor device surface to prevent electric leakage, and fabricate amorphous metal thin films, by depositing oxide films onto metal layer surfaces and studying the effect of the diode, in order to study PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46773 film uniformity, adhesion, dielectric constant, and optical constants. Unique features of the instrument include a dual vacuum chamber, which allows different reaction chambers to be fit into the same vacuum chamber, allowing easy scale up to batch process and deposition on different substrates, source lines that are pre-heated before entering the reactor chamber, improving the deposition quality, and the option of ultra-high vacuum system by using metal seal flanges. Another unique feature is the hot-wall reaction chamber, which allows a metal-metal sealing surface and pressure control that keeps all process gases inside the reaction chamber with no condensation occurring in the vacuum chamber walls. The reaction chamber walls are at the same temperature as the substrate which prevents secondary reaction routes inside the reaction chamber that would result in the loss of self-limited growth mechanism of ALD, ensures no corrosion occurs on the vacuum chamber walls, and ensures the best particle performance and long maintenance cycles, and a maximum deposition temperature of 500 degrees Celsius.

Manufacturer: University of Cambridge—Cavendish Labs, United Kingdom. Intended Use: The instrument will be used to acquire the astronomical target by sensing its location in a moderate field of view image and using the position of the target relative to a pre-determined location in the sensor field of view to provide signals used to adjust the pointing of the telescope, and thereafter to detect and eliminate rapid tip-tilt (i.e. angle of arrival) fluctuations in the incoming light beam due to atmospheric turbulence—sensing these again by measuring the position of the target relative to a pre-determined location in the sensor field and using these measurements to send high frequency control signals to the active secondary mirror of the telescope and low frequency pointing corrections to the telescope mount. The unique features of the instrument are the interferometer system which is designed to fulfill the Science Reference Mission, including a focus on modelindependent imaging as opposed to E:\FR\FM\11AUN1.SGM 11AUN1
