  • Patent number: 10738730
    Abstract: A head-side jacket through which coolant flows is formed in a cylinder head. A main circulation path and a sub circulation path through which coolant fed from a coolant pump respectively circulates are formed. The head-side jacket is separated into an exhaust-port side jacket formed around an exhaust port, and a combustion-chamber-side jacket closer to a combustion chamber than the exhaust-port-side jacket. A heat exchanger is not formed in the main circulation path including the combustion-chamber-side jacket, but is formed in the sub circulation path excluding the combustion-chamber-side jacket and including the exhaust-port-side jacket.

  • Patent number: 10641790
    Abstract: Provided is a scanning probe microscope being able to shorten an observation time of a minute observation object. Main measurement is performed to acquire a surface image of a sample based on a detection signal in a measurement range of a plurality of lines by repeating, for each line, processing of scanning a cantilever at predetermined second intervals in a Y-direction after acquiring the detection signal at predetermined first intervals while scanning the cantilever on a line having a predetermined length along an X-direction. Preliminary measurement is performed to acquire a surface image of the sample by acquiring the detection signal at intervals wider than the first intervals or scanning the cantilever in the Y-direction at intervals wider than the second intervals before the main measurement, the surface image of the sample being coarser than the surface image in the main measurement.

  • Patent number: 10598691
    Abstract: A scanning probe microscope includes a light source, a detector, a housing, an opening and closing door, an opening and closing sensor, a control unit, and the like. The opening and closing door is provided in the housing. The control unit 16 also functions as the light intensity change processing unit 164. In the scanning probe microscope, when the opening and closing sensor detects opening and closing of the opening and closing door, the light intensity change processing unit automatically changes the intensity of light irradiated from the light source based on a detection result of the opening and closing sensor. Therefore, it is possible to omit light intensity adjustment work performed manually by the user. As a result, the workability of the user when using the scanning probe microscope 1 can be improved.
