A determination unit determines a feed amount of each of a plurality of chemicals acting on at least one disruptive factor and having components different from each other with respect to the water system based on the water quality index value, the environmental data, and the operational data such that the water quality index value for each of the disruptive factors approximates a water quality target value for each of the disruptive factors.
Abstract: A toner image is formed on a first sheet surface and then heated. A conveyance unit includes a first rotary member configured to contact the first sheet surface and a second rotary member configured to contact a second sheet surface opposite to the first sheet surface. A conveyance guide is provided with an opening through which air is blown to the first sheet surface. The conveyance guide includes a first surface part and a second surface part. The first surface part is disposed on a location in a width direction overlapping with a location in the width direction of the first rotary member. In at least a part of a range between the opening and the first rotary member in the sheet conveyance direction, the first surface part is protruded with respect to the second surface part in a height direction.
Abstract: In forming an ohmic electrode on a back surface of an n-type SiC substrate, an n+-type semiconductor region is formed in a surface layer of the back surface of an n-type epitaxial substrate by ion implantation. In this ion implantation, the impurity concentration of the n+-type semiconductor region is a predetermined range and preferably a predetermined value or less, and an n-type impurity is implanted by acceleration energy of a predetermined range such that the n+-type semiconductor region has a predetermined thickness or less. Thereafter, a nickel layer and a titanium layer are sequentially formed on the surface of the n+-type semiconductor region, the nickel layer is heat treated to form a silicide, and the ohmic electrode formed from nickel silicide is formed. In this manner, a back surface electrode that has favorable properties can be formed while peeling of the back surface electrode can be suppressed.
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.
