  • Publication number: 20220068554
    Abstract: An electronic component comprising a glass body containing a photosensitizer; a conductor as at least a part of an electric element, arranged on the glass body; a terminal electrode as a terminal of the electric element, arranged above an outer surface of the glass body, with the terminal electrode being electrically connected to the conductor; and an insulating film arranged above the outer surface of the glass body. The insulating film reflects or absorbs light in a photosensitive wavelength range of the photosensitizer contained in the glass body.

  • Publication number: 20210072101
    Abstract: A tactile and proximity sensor includes a light source, a light receiving section, and a cover. The light source emits light. The light receiving section receives light and generates a signal providing a result of the received light. The cover includes an elastic body that deforms under external force and that covers the light source and the light receiving section. The cover includes a reflective section that reflects light between the light source and the light receiving section and a transmission section that allows light to pass through in a first direction from the light source and that allows light to pass through in a second direction from the light receiving section.
