  • Patent number: 11499959
    Abstract: A first modulation voltage is applied to a thin film. An amount of a change in the phase of a current carried through the thin film with respect to the phase of the first modulation voltage is compared with a threshold. Upon detecting that the amount of the change in the phase exceeds the threshold is detected, the application of the first modulation voltage is stopped. Thus, a nanopore is formed on the thin film at high speed.

  • Patent number: 11434111
    Abstract: A crane calculates the resonance frequency of the fluctuation of a suspended load determined from the hanging length of a main wire rope or a sub wire rope, generates a control signal for actuators, in accordance with the operation of a turning operation tool, a hoisting operation tool and the like, and generates a filtering control signal for the actuators in which a frequency component in any frequency range has been attenuated from the control signal at any ratio in reference to the resonance frequency. When the actuators are controlled by the operation of the respective operation tool and when the actuators are controlled regardless of the operation of the respective operation tool, the frequency range to be attenuated and the attenuation ratio are switched to different settings.
