  • Patent number: 11378321
    Abstract: An ice making machine is provided and includes: an ice tray, having a water storage recessed part; a drive part for reversing the ice tray around an axial line passing the ice tray between a water storage position and an ice separation position; and a frame, supporting the ice tray and the drive part. The ice tray includes a water receiving part protruded to an outer side in a portion which is moved to a lower side when the ice tray starts to turn to a CCW direction directing from the water storage position to the ice separation position. The frame includes a projected portion located on an upper side with respect to the water receiving part. The projected portion includes a water passage port for passing the water at a position overlapping with the water receiving part when being viewed in a Z-direction.

  • Publication number: 20220209505
    Abstract: A laser module including a quantum cascade laser that includes a substrate having a main surface, a first clad layer provided on the main surface, an active layer provided on the first clad layer, and a second clad layer provided on the active layer, and a lens that has a lens plane disposed at a position facing the end surface of the active layer. An end surface of the active layer constitutes a resonator that causes light of a first frequency and light of a second frequency to oscillate, and the active layer is configured to generate a terahertz wave of a differential frequency between the first frequency and the second frequency. The substrate is in direct contact or indirect contact with the lens plane, and the end surface of the active layer is inclined with respect to a portion facing the end surface in the lens plane.
