  • Patent number: 8468685
    Abstract: A wire forming device for applying a paste material on an insulating substrate to form a wiring pattern. The wire forming device includes a paste material application unit which includes an atomizing unit atomizing the paste material and a nozzle spraying the atomized paste material onto the insulating substrate. The atomizing unit includes: a medium supplying portion which mixes a medium with a carrier gas to form a mixed gas and an atomizing portion. The atomizing portion holds the paste material and brings the mixed gas into contact with the paste material to atomize the paste material, thereby making a mist stream of the mixed gas and the paste material as the atomized paste material fed to the nozzle. The wire forming further includes a mixing ratio adjusting unit adjusting a mixing ratio of the paste material to the mixed gas in the mist stream.

  • Publication number: 20110101254
    Abstract: Accelerated particle irradiation equipment, which performs irradiation of accelerated particles, includes an irradiation device and a storage chamber. The irradiation device includes a rotating unit rotatable about a rotation axis, and performs irradiation of the accelerated particles generated by a particle accelerator. The irradiation device is stored in the storage chamber. The rotating unit of the irradiation device includes a protruding portion that protrudes further to the outside in the radial direction as compared to the main body of the rotating unit. Storage recesses in which the protruding portion forming a peripheral edge portion of the rotating unit maybe stored are formed on radiation shield walls of the storage chamber. The storage recesses are formed along the rotation direction of the protruding portion.

  • Publication number: 20100086095
    Abstract: Improvements in both the pressure resistance of a target and the cooling effect of a target liquid can be made compatible, and the boiling of the target liquid is sufficiently suppressed. A radioisotope manufacturing apparatus can include a radiation source which radiates radioactive rays, and a target having a holding unit which holds the target liquid. The holding unit can include a spherical bottom surface which is recessed in a direction away from the radiation source so as to have an apex. The target can be disposed so that the intersection position between a radiation axis of radioactive rays radiated from the radiation source and the bottom surface can be located below the apex.
