  • Patent number: 8613532
    Abstract: In the light flux controlling member (5), the angle between an optical path of light output from the light emission center (14) of a light emitting element (4) and optical axis L1 is ?2. Light is incident on the light flux controlling member (5) through an input surface and travels inside the light flux controlling member at an angle ?2 with respect to optical axis L1. Then, light is output from a light control output surface (10) at an angle ?3 with respect to optical axis L1. The input surface (15) and the light control output surface (10) are formed such that, in a range 0<?1??1max, the relationship between ?1 and ?2 is reversed from ?1<?2 to ?1>?2 when ?1 increases, and the relationship between ?1 and ?3 is reversed from ?1<?3 to ?1>?3 when ?1 increases.

  • Patent number: 8445096
    Abstract: A glass substrate is held by a glass substrate holding member in the vertical direction, and a nozzle is used to eject an infrared cutoff liquid onto the upper portion of the glass substrate. The infrared cutoff liquid flows vertically downward so as to be applied onto the glass substrate. The film thickness of the lower portion of an infrared cutoff film is greater than that of the upper portion. The glass substrate is dried for approximately five minutes at room temperature. Then, the glass substrate onto which the infrared cutoff liquid has been applied is placed in an oven preheated to 200° C., heated for ten minutes, and then cooled. The glass substrate having the infrared cutoff film thereon is installed in a railroad vehicle such that the lower portion of the glass substrate is located on the lower side with respect to the railroad vehicle.

  • Patent number: 8367187
    Abstract: A window pane for an automobile includes a single sheet of glass plate and an infrared cutoff film formed on the single sheet of glass plate. A film thickness of the infrared cutoff film on an upper portion of the window pane is greater than the film thickness on a lower portion of the window pane when the window pane is installed in the automobile. A variation from a minimum value in the film thickness on the lower portion to a maximum value in the film thickness on the upper portion is at least 1000 nm per 600 mm in a vertical direction of the window pane when installed in the automobile. The infrared cutoff film is formed on a surface of the single sheet of glass plate by using a flow coating method.

  • Patent number: 8339546
    Abstract: A liquid crystal display device includes a liquid crystal layer which is arranged between first and second aligning films formed on inner sides of first and second substrates, has liquid crystal molecules twist-aligned in a direction from the first aligning film toward the second aligning film when an electric field is not applied between first and second electrodes, and generates retardation of substantially ?/2 with respect to transmitted light. First and second polarizing plates are arranged on outer sides of the first and second substrates. A transmission axis or an absorption axis of the first polarizing plate is substantially matched with a direction along which the liquid crystal molecules in the vicinity of the first aligning film are aligned when a sufficiently intensive electric field is applied.
