  • Publication number: 20190212553
    Abstract: The present invention provides a translucent cover member for a head-up display device and a head-up display device that suppress double vision of a virtual image. A translucent cover member covers the opening of a housing, allowing the display light to pass therethrough. The translucent cover member includes a base material made up of a translucent resin and a moth eye layer formed on the display light incidence side of the base material and suppressing reflection of light. According to this structure, the moth eye layer suppresses reflection of the display light. Thereby, it is possible to suppress double vision of a virtual image.

  • Patent number: 6694069
    Abstract: An object of the invention is to provide an optical integrated circuit substrate capable of establishing optical connection between an optical waveguide and a semiconductor light-receiving element with high light-receiving efficiency and of achieving low-loss light transmission. In the optical integrated circuit substrate, on a substrate is formed an optical waveguide having a clad and a core layer. Embedded in the optical waveguide are a metal placement portion for an optical element and a thin-film optical element placed thereon. Distance between the thin-film optical element and the core layer is reduced. In a region free of the thin-film optical element, there is an adequate distance between the core layer and the substrate. This allows satisfactory optical connection between the thin-film optical element and the optical waveguide. In the thin-film optical element-free region, low-loss light transmission is achieved without interaction between transmitted light and the substrate.

  • Patent number: 6661939
    Abstract: An optical module comprising: an optical element flip-chip mounted on a substrate; an optical waveguide formed on the substrate and optically connected to the optical element; and underfill resin filled in between the substrate and the optical element and covering an optical junction between the optical element and the optical waveguide, wherein the underfill resin is of an electrically insulating material and has a refractive index equal to or smaller than a refractive index of a clad portion of the optical waveguide. The optical element can be flip-chip mounted with improved mechanical and electrical mounting reliability and thus satisfactory optical connection can be maintained. Further, it never occurs that light passing through the optical waveguide leaks to the underfill resin in the optical junction between the optical waveguide and the optical element.

  • Patent number: 4923765
    Abstract: A magneto-optical recording medium made of a rare-earth-transition metal amorphous film provides a compensation temperature Tcomp of 50.degree.-200.degree. C. or 0.degree. C. or less. This compensation temperature decreases a saturation magnetization Ms during recording, thereby preventing the provision of inverted magnetic domains at the centers of recording domains resulting from the demagnetizing field generated by the strength distribution of laser light, and so improving a carrier-to-noise ratio during reading. In the case of using a Tb-Fe-Co system amorphous film, Tcomp of 50.degree.-200.degree. C. may be give by the composition comprising Tb of 24-30 atomic %, Co of 7-20 atomic % and Fe of the rest, and Tcomp of 0.degree. C. or less may be given by the composition comprising Tb of 18-21.5 atomic %, Co of 8-10 atomic % and Fe of the rest.
