  • Publication number: 20240118406
    Abstract: A sensor includes a complex-transfer-function calculator that calculates a complex transfer function from received signals, a reflection-coefficient calculator that calculates a reflection coefficient using a complex transfer function when an object to be detected is arranged at one of L positions and an ideal complex transfer function which is a theoretical value for the position at which the object to be detected is arranged, various normalizers that calculate a normalized reflection coefficient by normalizing the reflection coefficient, a reflection-coefficient interpolator that calculates an interpolated reflection coefficient by interpolation calculation of the reflection coefficient using the normalized reflection coefficient for each coordinates used in position estimation of the object to be detected, and a position estimator that corrects the position estimation, using a steering vector and the interpolated reflection coefficient that are determined based on the position of each of the transmitting a

  • Publication number: 20240118407
    Abstract: A sensor receives M reception signals including reflection signals reflected by a living body; extracts a living-body component transfer function matrix from first complex transfer functions and second complex transfer functions, the first complex transfer functions being obtained by recording an M×N complex transfer function matrix including complex transfer functions in time series, from M reception signals, the complex transfer functions each indicating characteristics of propagation between a corresponding one of transmission antenna elements and a corresponding one of reception antenna elements, the second complex transfer functions being obtained by estimating and recording M×N complex transfer functions in a second period, and outputting a position at which a spectrum function indicating a likelihood that a living body is present indicates a local maximum value, using a correlation matrix based on the living-body component complex transfer function matrix and a steering vector corresponding to each of

  • Publication number: 20240087916
    Abstract: A vacuum processing apparatus includes a decompressable process container; a supply port configured to supply, to the process container, an ionic liquid that absorbs an oxidizing gas; and a discharge port configured to discharge the ionic liquid supplied to the process container. A recess is provided at a joint portion between members constituting the process container. The supply port is configured to supply the ionic liquid to the recess, and the discharge port is configured to discharge the ionic liquid supplied to the recess.

  • Publication number: 20230207246
    Abstract: In order to suppress the amount of time needed for the start-up of a microwave tube carried out when voltage fed from a power source has decreased, while avoiding increase in scale of a power storage unit, this power supply device includes: a power supply unit that supplies power fed from the power source to the microwave tube that is provided with a cathode, a heater for heating the cathode, an anode, and a collector; a power storage unit that stores the fed power and, if the voltage of the fed power decreases, supplies stored power that is power obtained by the power storing, to the microwave tube; and a power supply switching unit that, if the voltage of the fed power decreases, stops supplying the stored power to the anode and does not stop supplying the stored power to the heater.

  • Publication number: 20220145546
    Abstract: Proposed are the welding conditions under which welds are always stably formed such that the difference in hardness between flash-butt welds and rail base metal and the deflection in a bending test are in better ranges. A plurality of pieces of rail base metal are joined via welds formed by flash-butt welding, where the rail base metal has a chemical composition containing C: 0.60 to 1.20 mass %, Si: 0.10 to 1.50 mass %, Mn: 0.10 to 1.50 mass %, and Cr: 0.10 to 1.50 mass %, with the balance being Fe and inevitable impurities, and the flash-butt welding is performed with an amount of welding heat input of 1.50×105 kA2×sec or more and 4.50×105 kA2×sec or less.
