  • Publication number: 20200017746
    Abstract: A base fluid for heat medium contains a hydrophilic ionic liquid and water. A molecular weight of the hydrophilic ionic liquid is at or below 150. The hydrophilic ionic liquid is methylammonium nitrate. Since the ionic liquid has favorable thermal stability, the thermal stability of the base fluid for heat medium can be secured. Since the molecular weight of the hydrophilic ionic liquid is at or below 150, the base fluid for heat medium has a low kinematic viscosity. Further, since the freezing point depression effect can be obtained by dissolving the ionic liquid in water, a low freezing point can be realized.

  • Patent number: 10395347
    Abstract: In a case where IR data of a near-infrared light image is data in which a visible light component and a near-infrared light component coexist, a point image restoration process is performed on the IR data using a first point image restoration filter based on a first point spread function for visible light of the optical system and a second point image restoration filter based on a second point spread function for near-infrared light of the optical system. An appropriate point image restoration process is performed on the IR data that is captured in a time zone of twilight or dawn by performing weighted averaging on a point image restoration process using the first point image restoration filter and a point image restoration process using the second point image restoration filter using a first gain ? and a second gain ? according to a light amount ratio between visible light and near-infrared light at the time of capturing the IR data.

  • Patent number: 10366475
    Abstract: Image data obtained by imaging of an imaging element capable of imaging a subject with sensitivity to a wavelength band of visible light and a wavelength band of near-infrared light via an optical system is acquired. A point image restoration process using a common restoration filter is performed on the image data of the subject captured with sensitivity to the wavelength band of the visible light by the imaging element and the image data of the subject captured with sensitivity to the wavelength band of the near-infrared light by the imaging element. The common restoration filter is calculated on the basis of average optical characteristics of the optical system obtained by performing weighted averaging of first optical characteristics with respect to the visible light of the optical system and second optical characteristics with respect to the near-infrared light of the optical system.

  • Patent number: 10339638
    Abstract: An image processing device and an image processing method capable of satisfactorily performing a point image restoration process of a visible light image and a point image restoration process of a near-infrared light image are provided. A point image restoration process is performed on luminance data Y indicating a visible light image and IR data indicating a near-infrared light image using a first point image restoration filter based on a first point spread function with respect to visible light of an optical system and a second point image restoration filter based on a second point spread function with respect to near-infrared light of the optical system. An appropriate point image restoration process is performed on the IR data so that restoration strength (second gain ?) in the point image restoration process for the IR data captured with radiation of near-infrared light is higher than restoration strength (first gain ?) in the point image restoration process for the luminance data Y.
