  • Patent number: 9116107
    Abstract: The X-ray detection apparatus is equipped with an X-ray irradiation unit, an X-ray detector, a movable collimator and a shield for blocking X-rays. The shield blocks X-rays, which are to enter the X-ray detector directly from the X-ray irradiation unit. The shield also blocks fluorescent X-rays and scattered X-rays generated by irradiation of the collimator with X-rays. In such a manner, it is possible to prevent X-rays other than fluorescent X-rays from the sample S from being detected by the X-ray detector. The shield is joined with the collimator, so that the collimator and the shield move as a unit. It is possible to locate the shield even in a downsized X-ray detection apparatus.

  • Patent number: 9116106
    Abstract: The X-ray detection apparatus is equipped with an X-ray irradiation unit, an X-ray detector, and a movable collimator having a plurality of apertures. The collimator is provided with a window unit through which light passes, and the apertures and the window unit are aligned in one direction. The collimator moves in the direction so as to change the diameter of an aperture for narrowing X-rays from the X-ray irradiation unit to be used for irradiation of a sample and move to a position to allow an imaging unit to photograph a sample through the window unit. It becomes possible to photograph a sample even in a state where the X-ray irradiation unit, the X-ray detector and the collimator are positioned proximally to each other.

  • Patent number: 8819160
    Abstract: A network-connectable device is configured to communicate with one or more computer-related devices via a network. The network-connectable device includes a list management unit and a shutdown unit. When the list management unit receives a start command signal instructing an activation of the network-connectable device which is transmitted from a computer-related device, the list management unit registers the computer-related device on a list. When the computer-related device registered on the list is switched to or is to be switched to a disconnected state disconnected from the network-connectable device, the list management unit deletes the computer-related device from the list. The shutdown unit shuts down power to a part of the network-connectable device when none of the computer-related devices is registered on the list.

  • Patent number: 8762700
    Abstract: The NAS 20 to which the removable hard disks 251 and 252 each storing an operating system are connected, assumes that the removable hard disk storing the signature of the NAS 20 stores an operating system executable on the NAS 20. Thus, the NAS 20 selects as a boot drive the removable hard disk storing the signature of the NAS 20 and then boots up the operating system stored in the boot drive thus selected.
