  • Publication number: 20220291195
    Abstract: Providing a microchip that effectively suppresses the peeling of a bonded substrate that has been bonded together and that is unlikely to leak liquid. A microchip includes: a bonded substrate that includes a plurality of substrates, each of the substrates having a main surface and a side surface, the main surfaces being bonded each other; and a microchannel located inside the bonded substrate. The substrates include a first substrate with a large thickness and a remaining substrate with a smaller thickness than the first substrate. At least the first substrate has a side surface having a gradient and extending to an outermost side of the bonded substrate when one end of the bonded substrate is viewed from a direction parallel to the main surface.

  • Publication number: 20120223631
    Abstract: A light emitting apparatus comprises an excimer lamp and a casing that houses the excimer lamp. A pair of electrodes of the excimer lamp is arranged on an outer surface of a flat electric discharge container whose cross sectional view is rectangular. A light emission section is formed on one face of the discharge container. The casing has a light extraction window that emits radiation light from the light emission section of the excimer lamp to outside of the casing. A reflective film is formed only on an inner wall face of the excimer lamp at a location opposite to the light emission section. The casing has a reflective mirror that reflects the light from the excimer lamp and directs the reflected light toward the light extraction window.
