  • Patent number: 7808649
    Abstract: A fixed-point detector is provided. The fixed-point detector includes a plurality of fixed-point detecting patterns, a fixed-point detecting light source, and a plurality of photoelectric conversion elements. The plurality of fixed-point detecting patterns each have a pair of diffraction gratings for diffracting incident light in different directions. The fixed-point detecting light source irradiates the pair of diffraction gratings with light while moving in the measurement-axis direction with respect to the plurality of fixed-point detecting patterns. The plurality of photoelectric conversion elements move together with the fixed-point detecting light source, while receiving light beams diffracted by the respective diffraction gratings of the plurality of fixed-point detecting patterns and converting the diffracted light beams into electric signals.

  • Patent number: 7803928
    Abstract: Methods and compositions for the expression of transgenes in monocot plants including maize are disclosed. In the invention, gene silencing is avoided by use of monocot-homeologous sequences from plants of the genus Coix for transformation. Included in these transgene sequences are Coix promoters, enhancers, coding sequences and terminators. Suitable alternatives to maize-derived transgenes are desirable for expression in maize in that homology-based gene silencing can limit or effectively eliminate transgene expression.
