Abstract: A compact and refined chip resistor, with which a plurality of types of required resistance values can be accommodated readily with the same design structure, was desired. The chip resistor is arranged to have a resistor network on a substrate. The resistor network includes a plurality of resistor bodies arrayed in a matrix and having an equal resistance value. A plurality of types of resistance units are respectively arranged by one or a plurality of the resistor bodies being connected electrically. The plurality of types of resistance units are connected in a predetermined mode using connection conductor films and fuse films. By selectively fusing a fuse film, a resistance unit can be electrically incorporated into the resistor network or electrically separated from the resistor network to make the resistance value of the resistor network the required resistance value.

Abstract: A catheter kit includes a catheter having an optical fiber, and a catheter accommodating tool which accommodates the catheter. The catheter accommodating tool has a tubular hoop, and a position adjustment mechanism provided at the hoop. The hoop has a hoop tip end portion at which a catheter tip end portion from which laser light transmitted through the optical fiber is emitted is disposed, and a hoop base end portion which is opposite to the hoop tip end portion. The position adjustment mechanism is provided at the hoop base end portion and changes a position of the catheter tip end portion with respect to the hoop tip end portion.

The light measurement device includes a light receiving part which receives the laser light output from the catheter tip end portion and a mounting part which is disposed at a position facing the light receiving part. The mounting part defines a position of a tubular hoop, which accommodates the catheter, with respect to the light receiving part. In a state in which the position of the hoop is defined by the mounting part, the light measurement device obtains the intensity of the laser light by inputting the laser light to the light receiving part.
