Novel Method for Depositing Material Or Light Onto a Surface To Form Rings Using a Shadow Mask

      Disclosed is a process for depositing material or light onto a
surface using a shadow mask to form rings.

      The surface is separated from the shadow mask in an assembly
using spacers (Fig. 1).  This assembly is placed in a planetary which
revolves and rotates around the source of material or light (Fig. 2).

      This motion of the assembly about the source produces the rings
(Fig. 3).  The dimensions of the rings can be altered by varying the
separation between the surface and the shadow mask (Fig. 4).

      This technique eliminates the need for lithography processing.
