  • Publication number: 20200158833
    Abstract: A light receiver array according to the present invention is constituted by array-aligning plural receivers having slow light waveguides of photonic crystals, and a LiDAR device according to the present invention is constituted by linearly arranging a light receiver array and a transmitter. An arranging relationship of plural receivers of the light receiver array is an array-like element formed by array-aligning plural receivers having the slow light waveguides of photonic crystals, and the array alignment is defined by alignment for defining a position relationship between the plural receivers constituting the light receiver array, and orientation for defining a direction of each receiver. A relationship p=?/sin ??r is satisfied between the alignment pitch p, wavelength ? of the reception light, and an arrival angle ??r when a phase difference between reception lights received by waveguide ends of adjacent receivers is one wavelength.

  • Publication number: 20200140903
    Abstract: Provided is a method for producing an unsaturated fatty acid oxide (e.g. ?3 fatty acid oxide) that is new and has more beneficial features compared to conventional technologies. This method uses a lipoxygenase-containing composition (e.g. a lipoxygenase-containing composition derived from beans) as a lipoxygenase enzyme, and also uses a freezing method with organic solvent extraction. The present invention makes it possible to produce an unsaturated fatty acid oxide (e.g. ?3 fatty acid oxide) efficiently and at a low cost. The present invention also provides a pharmaceutical composition containing an ?3 fatty acid oxide isolated and purified by this method as an active ingredient.
