  • Patent number: 10340440
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a base material, a first metal film disposed on the base material and containing nitrogen and chromium, and a second metal film disposed on the first metal film and containing gold. In the first metal film, the number of nitrogen atoms may be between 20% to 100% of the number of chromium atoms. Further, the distribution of nitrogen atoms in the first metal film is larger in a third region sandwiched between a first region on the base material side of the first metal film and a second region on the second metal film side than in the first region and in the second region.

  • Patent number: 10336009
    Abstract: The color of object data that indicates the shape and the color of an object is reproduced faithfully when modeling an object. A model is formed by discharging droplets having the same color from droplet discharging units onto a medium, based on the same reference signal. Colorimetry is performed on the model, and a first-portion and a second-portion having a color with a higher density are specified. The liquid amount of droplets per unit area to be discharged from droplets discharging units that formed the first-portion and the liquid amount of droplets per unit area to be discharged from droplets discharging units that formed the second-portion are adjusted such that a difference in density of colors to be reproduced decreases. The object is modeled by repeating processing for discharging droplets from the droplet discharging units based on the object data.
