  • Publication number: 20200312484
    Abstract: This dielectric film is a dielectric film comprising an oxide having a perovskite structure. The oxide comprises (1) Bi, Na and Ti, (2) at least one of Ba and Ca, and (3) at least one element Ln selected from the group consisting of La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho, Yb and Y. When ratios of the numbers of atoms of Bi, Ba and Ca to the total of the numbers of atoms of Bi, Na, Ba and Ca in the oxide are represented by XBi, XBa and XCa, respectively, the ratios satisfy 0.2?XBi/(XBa+XCa)?5.

  • Patent number: 9096997
    Abstract: A sanitary washing apparatus is provided according to one aspect of the invention, where the sanitary washing apparatus includes: a washing nozzle having a water discharge port, where the washing nozzle is configured to wash a body of a user by squirting water from the water discharge port; and a casing capable of storing the washing nozzle. The washing nozzle is configured to change from a stored state to an advanced state while transitioning to an orientation having a greater angle of an axis of the washing nozzle with respect to a horizontal plane, where the washing nozzle is stored in the casing in the stored state, and the washing nozzle is configured to wash the body in the advanced state.
