  • Patent number: 10700288
    Abstract: A light-emitting element that contains a fluorescent compound, which has high efficiency is provided. A light-emitting element in which the proportion of delayed fluorescence to the total light emitted from the light-emitting element is higher than that in a conventional light-emitting element is provided. Emission efficiency of the light-emitting element containing a fluorescent compound can be improved by increasing the probability of TTA caused by an organic compound in an EL layer, converting energy of triplet excitons, which does not contribute to light emission, into energy of singlet excitons, and making the fluorescent compound emit light by energy transfer of the singlet excitons.

  • Patent number: 10651495
    Abstract: A fuel cell includes a first separator and a second separator. A second protrusion is formed on a first sealing portion of the first separator. A concave portion is formed in a second sealing portion of the second separator. When fuel cells are stacked together sequentially in the vertical direction without displacing relative to one another, the center of the second protrusion and the center of the concave portion are aligned with each other. Even if the fuel cells are displaced while being stacked together, the upper fuel cell in the vertical direction is moved to decrease the distance between the center of the second protrusion and the center of the corresponding concave portion.

  • Publication number: 20200133283
    Abstract: A proceedable direction detection apparatus includes a processor. The processor inputs an image acquired from an image capturing unit mounted on a vehicle into a classifier that is pre-trained to output a proceedable certainty degree indicating a proceedable probability of each relative bearing with respect to a predetermined direction relative to a vehicle based on a display status of a traffic signal in the image. The processor calculates, using the classifier, the proceedable certainty degree of each relative bearing based on the display status of the traffic signal in the image. The processor determines the direction in which the vehicle can proceed based on a proceedable certainty degree of each relative bearing.
