  • Patent number: 11553829
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus (2000) detects an abnormal region (30) from a predetermined range (16) of a video frame (14). The information processing apparatus (2000) determines whether a predetermined condition is satisfied in a case where the abnormal region (30) is detected from the predetermined range (16) of a certain video frame (14) and the abnormal region (30) is not detected from the predetermined range (16) of a predetermined video frame (14) generated later than the video frame (14). In a case where the predetermined condition is not satisfied, the information processing apparatus (2000) performs a predetermined notification.

  • Publication number: 20220287554
    Abstract: A light source device includes a first light source, a second light source, and a processor. The processor controls, based on spectrum setting information, an emitted light amount of the first light source and an emitted light amount of the second light source so that the emitted light amount of the first light source becomes larger than the emitted light amount of the second light source. The observation object includes a region of interest, a merkmal, and a peripheral portion. The spectrum setting information is set based on a merkmal observed ratio that is a ratio between a spectral reflectance in the merkmal and a spectral reflectance in the peripheral portion. A degree of disassociation of the merkmal observed ratio in the first wavelength region from 1 is greater than a degree of disassociation of the merkmal observed ratio in the second wavelength region from 1.

    Abstract: An immersion microscope objective formed of thirteen or fewer lens elements includes, in order from the object side, first and second lens groups of positive refractive power, a third lens group, a fourth lens group having negative refractive power with its image-side surface being concave, and a fifth lens group having positive refractive power with its object-side surface being concave. The first lens group includes, in order from the object side, a lens component that consists of a lens element of positive refractive power (when computed as being in air) and a meniscus lens element having its concave surface on the object side. Various conditions are satisfied to ensure that images of fluorescence, obtained when the immersion microscope objective is used in a laser scanning microscope that employs multiphoton excitation to observe a specimen, are bright and of high resolution. Various laser scanning microscopes are also disclosed.

    Abstract: A pattern forming method includes forming a resist film on a target film to be processed, which is formed on a substrate; and forming a basic pattern part in the resist film by multiple exposure using photomasks, wherein each exposure process is performed at an amount of exposure smaller than a threshold assigned to the resist film; and the resist film is developed after the total sum of the amounts of exposure through a plurality of exposure processes exceeds the threshold, so that the basic pattern part including a hole shape, which corresponds to each area where the total amount of exposure through the exposure processes via the photomasks exceeds the threshold, is formed in the resist film. The method also includes performing etching via the basic pattern part so as to form a desired pattern in the target film.
