  • Patent number: 10978023
    Abstract: In a display apparatus, a projected member is arranged in a direction in which a driver of a moving body looks while driving, from the perspective of the driver. A projecting unit projects at least one display object in a position that overlaps a background that is visible to the driver through the projected member, so as to be displayed in a superimposed manner as a virtual image. A measuring unit measures a luminance value of the background. A control unit determines a luminance value of the display object based on the luminance value of the background measured by the measuring unit, chromaticity values of the display object, and a sense of superimposition that is a value having a range of 0 or greater and 100 or less, and controls the projecting unit such that the display object is projected at the luminance value of the display object.

  • Publication number: 20200312604
    Abstract: An analyzing apparatus includes a sample chamber, a measurement apparatus, and a gas cluster ion beam apparatus. A cooling body separates an ionization chamber of the gas cluster ion beam apparatus from a nozzle support to prevent heat emitted by an ionization filament from being transmitted to the nozzle support, and a temperature of a source gas emitted from a nozzle is kept at a constant temperature by a gas heating device while a sputtering rate is kept constant. A pressure of the source gas supplied to the nozzle is kept at constant pressure by a pressure controller, and a size of gas cluster ions is kept at a constant value. Because the sputtering rate is a constant value, highly accurate depth surface profiling can be performed.
