  • Patent number: 9908306
    Abstract: An infrared shielding sheet includes a laminated film formed by alternately laminating a high refractive index resin layer containing fine particles and a low refractive index resin layer containing fine particles. At least one of the low refractive index resin layers has a value of 0.1 or more that is obtained by subtracting a refractive index at an arbitrary wavelength from 780 to 2500 nm from a refractive index at a wavelength of 550 nm. The low refractive index resin layer has a refractive index lower than a refractive index of the high refractive index resin layer at any wavelength in a range from 550 nm to the arbitrary wavelength inclusive.

  • Publication number: 20170350856
    Abstract: A field effect transistor and a sensor using the field effect transistor is provided. The field effect transistor can be manufactured so as to have uniform properties by simple steps at low costs, and can stably detect, when used as a sensor, a very small amount of analyte with a high sensitivity while the properties are hardly deteriorated. A channel of the field effect transistor is constituted by a single-walled carbon nanotube thin film that is grown, by a chemical vapor deposition method, using particles of a nonmetallic material as growth nuclei, the nonmetallic material containing 500 mass ppm or less metallic impurities that contain a metal and its compounds.

  • Publication number: 20150285972
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a heat-ray-shielding sheet that includes, on a support, a heat-ray-shielding layer including heat-shielding microparticles and a resin binder filling a void part. The microparticles are made of tin-doped indium oxide (ITO) or the like and have an average particle diameter of equal to or less than 100 nm, the reflectance in the heat-ray-shielding layer at a wavelength of at least 2,000 nm is at least 15%, and the surface resistivity in the heat-ray-shielding layer is equal to or more than 106?/?. Increasing the surface resistivity imparts a radio-wave-transmitting property, and causing longer-wavelength near-infrared light to be reflected boosts heat-ray-shielding efficiency while preventing thermal cracking and the like of a glass substrate. Additionally compounding the heat-ray-shielding layer with a near-infrared-absorbing dye, or disposing a reflecting layer in addition to the heat-ray-shielding layer allows the heat-ray shielding effect to be further improved.

The compounds and the ink compositions are excellent in stability and safety, and emit red light by irradiation with ultraviolet light though they are substantially invisible in the visible light region. Thus, they are useful for prints which are to be read by a system having a sensor reading function with the need for hidden letters or security markings.
