  • Publication number: 20240203341
    Abstract: A display device includes a display panel including a group of pixels; a control unit configured to execute deterioration monitoring for detecting a decrease in luminous efficiency of the group of pixels and first high-speed monitoring for determining whether to execute the deterioration monitoring, the first high-speed monitoring being executed at a faster speed than the deterioration monitoring; and a storage unit configured to store reference data specifying an acceptable range for executing the deterioration monitoring. The control unit executes the deterioration monitoring in a case where a first high-speed monitoring measurement value obtained by the first high-speed monitoring is within the acceptable range.

    Abstract: A formation of a biofilm is suppressed in piping having a relatively small liquid flow rate. A liquid processing nozzle connected to a liquid piping between a handpiece and a water supply source piping includes a nozzle body in which a liquid inlet, a liquid outlet, and a liquid flow path communicating the liquid inlet and the liquid outlet are formed, and a plurality of protrusions protruding from an inner surface of the liquid flow path into the liquid flow path. The protrusions are arranged so that protrusion amounts from the inner surface of the liquid flow path into the liquid flow path gradually increase as they go from an upstream side to a downstream side of the liquid flow path in a liquid flow direction from the liquid inlet to the liquid outlet.
