  • Publication number: 20200312555
    Abstract: A multilayer ceramic capacitor includes a laminate including a dielectric ceramic layer and first and second electrode layers laminated in a lamination direction, and first and second external electrodes respectively connected to the first and second internal electrode layers. The laminate includes a central layer portion, a peripheral layer portion sandwiching the central layer portion, and a side margin sandwiching the central layer portion and the peripheral layer portion. The first and second internal electrode layers and the first and second external electrodes include Ni. In a cross section including the lamination direction and a width direction, a Ni content of the peripheral layer portion is larger at a surface portion than at a central portion in a thickness direction, and a Ni content of the side margin is larger at a surface portion than at a central portion in a thickness direction of the side margin.

The laminate includes a central layer portion, a peripheral layer portion sandwiching the central layer portion, and a side margin sandwiching the central layer portion and the peripheral layer portion. The side margin includes an inner layer and an outer layer. In a cross section including a lamination direction and a width direction obtained by cutting the laminate at the center in a longitudinal direction of the laminate, the ceramic grains in the dielectric ceramic layer between ends of the internal electrode layers in the width direction have a smaller diameter than the ceramic grains in the dielectric ceramic layer at the center of the central layer portion in the width direction.

  • Patent number: 10655110
    Abstract: A highly safe dengue vaccine was invented that induced a neutralizing antibody response against all of the four serotypes of dengue virus without developing more than a fixed level of viremia with single administration. A tetravalent dengue virus formulation is provided that is excellent in both efficacy (neutralizing antibody response) and safety (viremia).

  • Patent number: 9390855
    Abstract: In a monolithic ceramic capacitor, ceramic layers defining inner layers are mainly composed of a perovskite compound containing Ba and Ti. A portion of an electrically effective section in the ceramic layers near a connecting portion between the inner electrodes and an outer electrode undergoes mapping analysis by an energy-dispersive method. In regions of the resulting mapping image, the regions extending from the interfaces between the inner electrodes and a corresponding one of the ceramic layers to positions about ? of the thickness of the ceramic layer in the stacking direction, ((L2?L3)/L1)×100?50 is satisfied, where L1 represents the total length of grain boundaries, L2 represents the total length of grain boundaries where a rare-earth element is present, and L3 represents the total length of portions where the grain boundaries where the rare-earth element is present are overlapped with grain boundaries with a specific element present.
