  • Patent number: 10488340
    Abstract: Methods and systems are disclosed for extracting an image of a target fluorophore in a biological material, which involve inducing both autofluorescence of the biological material and fluorescence of the fluorophore, acquiring an image arising from both the autofluorescence of the biological material and the fluorophore, and an image arising only from the autofluorescence, subtracting the two images to produce an image representing only the fluorophore, wherein relative intensities of the excitation light used to induce the autofluorescence and the fluorescence are modulated prior to acquiring the images.

  • Patent number: 9634582
    Abstract: Provided is a detachable generator device which can change the installation location with ease and which can effectively use a solar cell to generate electric power. The detachable generator device includes: a film-like solar cell; and attaching/detaching means for allowing the film-like solar cell to be attached to and detached from an attachment object at an installation location. The attaching/detaching means includes an adhesive film having an attaching/detaching surface which develops Van der Waals force to enable repeated affixation, or an electrostatic chuck for forming an attaching/detaching surface by turning on/off a voltage source connected to an attraction electrode sandwiched between two insulating layers to freely develop electrostatic attraction on a surface of at least one of the insulating layers.
