  • Patent number: 9728609
    Abstract: A step-flow growth of a group-III nitride single crystal on a silicon single crystal substrate is promoted. A layer of oxide oriented to a <111> axis of silicon single crystal is formed on a surface of a silicon single crystal substrate, and group-III nitride single crystal is crystallized on a surface of the layer of oxide. Thereupon, a <0001> axis of the group-III nitride single crystal undergoing crystal growth is oriented to a c-axis of the oxide. When the silicon single crystal substrate is provided with a miscut angle, step-flow growth of the group-III nitride single crystal occurs. By deoxidizing a silicon oxide layer formed at an interface of the silicon single crystal and the oxide, orientation of the oxide is improved.

  • Publication number: 20170199449
    Abstract: A projection-type display device includes: R, G, and B light sources that emit light beams with different colors; a projection unit that projects light beams based on image information among light beams emitted from the light sources onto a projection screen; a heat sink that radiates heat generated from the R light source, which has a maximum change in light emission intensity relative to a change in temperature, among the light sources; and a heat sink that radiates heat generated from the G and B light sources and that has a surface area smaller than that of the heat sink. In a use state, the R light source is disposed on a side apart from the other light sources in a direction opposite to a direction of gravitational force.

  • Publication number: 20170182621
    Abstract: A lens manufacturing method including a holding step of holding a lens in a lens holding fixture, and a machining step of machining a surface to be machined in the held lens. A reverse surface of the surface to be machined is machined into a non-planar shape with a first surface shape error. A lens holding surface of the lens holding fixture is machined into the same shape as the non-planar shape with a second surface shape error smaller than the first surface shape error. In the holding step, the reverse surface is brought into surface contact with the holding surface in imitation of the holding surface to correct the shape of the lens such that the reverse surface runs along the holding surface. In the machining step, the surface to be machined is machined in a state where the correction has been made by the holding step.
