  • Patent number: 10744404
    Abstract: Provided is an information processing system including a reflection member, a hand-held information processing apparatus including an imaging section, and an information processing apparatus communicable with the hand-held information processing apparatus. The reflection member is a retroreflecting material. The hand-held information processing apparatus includes the imaging section and a light emitting section. The hand-held information processing apparatus analyzes a captured image, calculates the position of an image of the retroreflecting material corresponding to reflected light from the retroreflecting material, and outputs positional information thereof. The information processing apparatus estimates the orientation or position of the hand-held information processing apparatus on the basis of the positional information, and generates an image based on the result of the estimation.

  • Patent number: 9773678
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a semiconductor substrate may comprise irradiating a surface of a first semiconductor layer and a surface of a second semiconductor layer with one or more types of first impurity in a vacuum. The method may comprise bonding the surface of the first semiconductor layer and the surface of the second semiconductor layer to each other in the vacuum. The method may comprise applying heat treatment to the semiconductor substrate produced in the bonding. The first impurity may be an inert impurity that does not generate carriers in the first and second semiconductor layers. The heat treatment may be applied such that a width of an in-depth concentration profile of the first impurity contained in the first and second semiconductor layers is narrower after execution of the heat treatment than before the execution of the heat treatment.
