    Abstract: An energy measuring apparatus according to one aspect of the present disclosure includes a first beam splitter, a second beam splitter, a third beam splitter, and a fourth beam splitter, which sequentially reflect part of a main beam and input the beam to an energy sensor. The first beam splitter, the second beam splitter, the third beam splitter, and the fourth beam splitter are each arranged to have such an incident angle and a folding direction of an optical path as to suppress a change in detection value of the energy sensor due to a change in incident angle and a change in polarization purity of the main beam.

  • Patent number: 10920488
    Abstract: There is provided a screen device that is capable of preventing deformation such as loosening of a horizontally-sliding roll screen due to the weight of the screen. A guide member has a slit that allows a fastener-like member at an upper end of the screen to be slidably engaged therewith in a retained state. In a state in which a space, which allows bending in the vertical direction, is formed above the guide member, both end portions and of the guide member are fixed to an upper horizontal frame of a screen frame, flange portions of the guide member are positioned above protruding walls in the upper horizontal frame, and spring members that apply upward urging forces to the guide member are provided between the protruding walls and the flange portions. Thus, deformation of the screen due to the weight thereof is suppressed by using the guide member.
