  • Patent number: 10317188
    Abstract: An imaging apparatus images an imaging object which is stored in a container having an optical transparent wall part tomographically via the wall part. An FD-OCT imaging apparatus sets an optical path length of a reference light in conjunction with a setting of a focal depth such that a position corresponding to the focal depth is between a position conjugate with a first surface and a position conjugate with a second surface in a reflected light intensity distribution representing a relationship between a position in an incident direction of an illumination light and a reflected light intensity. Here, the first surface is a surface on the imaging object side out of surfaces of the wall part. The second surface is another surface on a side opposite to the imaging object out of the surfaces of the wall part.

  • Patent number: 10321064
    Abstract: A vehicular vision system includes a camera having an exterior field of view, an image processor that processes image data captured by the camera, a display for displaying images derived from captured image data, and a control. The control, at least in part responsive to processing of captured image data, determines presence of an object at least partially in the camera's field of view. Responsive to determination that a portion of the determined object is obstructed or outside of the camera's field of view, the control generates an augmented image that represents an augmented reality reproduction of at least that portion of the determined object. The display displays (i) video images derived from captured image data and (ii) the generated augmented image that represents the augmented reality reproduction of at least the portion of the determined object that is obstructed or outside of the camera's field of view.

  • Patent number: 10317281
    Abstract: A compact spectrometer includes an excitation light source configured to generate excitation light and arranged to illuminate a spot on a sample. A dispersive element includes at least one movable component and spatially separates output light emanating from the sample in response to the excitation light into a plurality of different wavelength bands. A moveable component of the dispersive element causes the plurality of different wavelength bands of the output light to be scanned across a detector. The detector includes at least one light sensor that senses the wavelength bands of the output light and generates an output electrical signal in response to the sensed output light.

  • Patent number: 10317330
    Abstract: A particle measuring apparatus includes a light source configured to irradiate a gas with light, a first optical detection unit configured to detect an intensity of reflected light from particles contained in the gas, and configured to output a first parameter value corresponding to the intensity of the reflected light, and a storage unit that stores first data indicating corresponding relationships between first parameter values particle components. The particle measuring apparatus further includes a calculation unit configured to compare the first parameter value transmitted from the first optical detection unit with the first data transmitted from the storage unit to determine a component of the particles contained in the gas.

  • Patent number: 10318432
    Abstract: A technique for operating a lower level cache memory of a data processing system includes receiving an operation that is associated with a first thread. Logical partition (LPAR) information for the operation is used to limit dependencies in a dependency data structure of a store queue of the lower level cache memory that are set and to remove dependencies that are otherwise unnecessary.
