  • Publication number: 20190165383
    Abstract: In a first aspect of a present inventive subject matter, a layered structure includes a base including a first metal as a major component and a second metal that is different from the first metal, and a thermal oxide film of the base arranged on the base and containing an oxide of the first metal and an oxide of the second metal. The first metal contained in the base is more in atomic composition ratio than the second metal contained in the base. The first metal of the oxide contained in the thermal oxide film is less in atomic composition ratio than the first metal contained in the base. The second metal of the oxide contained in the thermal oxide film is equal to or more in atomic ratio than the first metal of the oxide contained in the thermal oxide film.

  • Patent number: 9846511
    Abstract: An input device includes a position detection sensor capable of detecting an input operation position of an operation body on an operation surface, a load detection sensor capable of detecting a load in the input operation position, and a control unit capable of executing offset calibration to correct an offset of an output of the load detection sensor based on input operation information resulting from an output of the position detection sensor.

  • Publication number: 20100215625
    Abstract: One of the problems to be resolved by the present invention is to stably and sustainably produce active ingredients contained in Bignoniaceous plants of which a mass production is difficult in a conventional manner. The present invention relates to a method for efficiently preparing an anticancer active ingredient NQ801 by a cell cultivation of Bignoniaceous plants under specific culture conditions. An ingredient-production system in the present invention has an anticancer activity.

  • Patent number: 5342189
    Abstract: An insert type extrusion die is presented for making small parts for use in electrical, automotive and other industries for manufacturing small component parts. The application of the invented die is illustrated for making multi-cavity flat aluminum tubes, which are used for small heat exchanger components, in automotive air-conditioners, condensors and radiators. The insert die is composed of a male die section having a protrusion part and a female die section having a die cavity is held detachably in a die holder. The male section is a roughly rectangular plate-shaped component, and has an integrally formed twist prevention region which is inserted into the receiver groove of the female section which is integrally formed thereon. The protrusion part defines the cavity shape of the multi-cavity flat tube, and the female section has the die cavity of the required cross sectional shape to define the outer shape of the tube.
