  • Patent number: 10824063
    Abstract: In an image projection device including a laser beam source and a diffractive optical element provided on an optical path of a laser beam L from the laser beam source, a transparent member having a refractive index higher than that of an area ahead of an emission surface on the optical path of the laser beam L and a diffractive optical element is formed on an emission surface of the transparent member. The laser beam L is obliquely incident on the diffractive optical element. The diffractive optical element generates a diffraction image in an area which is not overlapped with zeroth order light LR of the laser beam L and an area occupied by a conjugate image, and is arranged in a direction to irradiate a screen with diffracted light forming the diffraction image while substantially eliminating the zeroth order light and the diffracted light forming the conjugate image.

  • Patent number: 10782766
    Abstract: There is expected a technique capable of, in the case where supply of power to a control apparatus is cut off, performing appropriate processing on other units. The control apparatus receives supply of power from an external power supply to a power supply unit and supplies power to a main arithmetic unit and a secondary arithmetic unit. The power supply unit is configured to, when receiving a detection signal indicating that a voltage of power supplied to a plurality of arithmetic units falls below a predetermined threshold value, send a shutdown command onto a local bus via a bus master part, and also send the shutdown command to the secondary arithmetic unit.

  • Patent number: 10619894
    Abstract: A substrate processing apparatus comprises: a first solidifier and a second solidifier. The first solidifier solidifies a liquid to be solidified adhering to a front surface of a substrate by supplying a liquid refrigerant to a back surface of the substrate at a first position. The second solidifier solidifies the liquid to be solidified by at least one of a first cooling mechanism and a second cooling mechanism. The first cooling mechanism cools the liquid to be solidified by supplying a gas refrigerant toward the substrate at a second position more distant from a center of rotation of the substrate in a radial direction than the first position. The second cooling mechanism cools the liquid to be solidified by bringing a processing surface into contact with the liquid to be solidified at the second position.
