  • Patent number: 7808577
    Abstract: A light source device capable of realizing a color display having the high light-use efficiency with a simple configuration is provided. Provided is a light source device including a prism sheet disposed to face a plane to be irradiated, and to bend an incident light to a direction substantially orthogonal to an incident direction; a light source section separately emitting a plurality of color lights having wavelength regions different from each other so that each of the color lights enters into the prism sheet at a small angle with respect to an extending direction of the prism sheet; and a light source drive means for driving the light source section so that each of the color lights periodically scans the plane to be irradiated so as to perform the line-sequential irradiation operation.

  • Patent number: 7808650
    Abstract: Disclosed is a displacement measuring apparatus that includes a composite scale having a magnetic pattern and a diffraction grating each aligned in a direction of measuring axis, and a detector head moving in a direction of measuring axis relative to the composite scale. The detector head has a magnetic detection unit detecting a magnetic field exerted by the magnetic pattern to generate first reproduced signals, a light source irradiating the diffraction grating with light, and an optical detection unit detecting the light diffracted by the diffraction grating to generate second reproduced signals. In composite scale, the magnetic pattern and the diffraction grating are arranged such that a pitch of the first reproduced signals is larger than that of the second reproduced signals.

  • Patent number: 7809146
    Abstract: Problems of permutation can be solved with high accuracy without utilizing knowledge about original signals or information concerning positions of microphones and the like when each one of plural signals mixed in an audio signal is separated using independent component analysis. A short-time Fourier transformation section generates spectrograms of observation signals from observation signals in time domain. A signal separation section separates the spectrograms of the observation signals into spectrograms of respective signals, to generate spectrograms of separate signals. A permutation problem solution section calculates a scale corresponding to the degree of permutation, e.g., a Kullback-Leiblar information amount calculated by use of a multidimensional probability density function or multidimensional kurtosis, from substantial whole of the spectrograms of the separate signals.
