    Abstract: A light projection lens includes: an inner surface which light emitted from a light source enters, and includes a first concave portion; and an outer surface from which the light exits. In a cross section parallel to an optical axis of the light emitted from the light source, the outer surface and the first concave portion have a difference in radius of curvature in at least a portion of the outer surface and the first concave portion. In a cross section perpendicular to the optical axis of the light emitted from the light source, the first concave portion has an elliptical shape. The light which exits from the outer surface is lesser in amount in an optical axis direction of the light emitted from the light source than in a direction different from the optical axis direction.

  • Publication number: 20200236877
    Abstract: First beam source radiates a near infrared reference beam of 905 nm, in which light tends not to be absorbed in water toward a leaf of a plant. Second beam source radiates a near infrared measuring beam of 1550 nm, in which light tends to be absorbed in water toward the leaf of the plant. Threshold level setter/water content index detector calculates a water content index of one leaf as a total sum ? Ln(I905/I1550) of the reflection intensity ratio. Controller displays a graph representing a total sum of water content of the leaf and a pixel average value as a time-transition of the water content contained in the plant from the start of the measurement period on a UI screen of a monitor. Viewed from the first and second beam sources, a white reference substrate covering a back surface of the leaf is disposed on the leaf of the plant.
