  • Publication number: 20190319211
    Abstract: An object of one embodiment of the present invention is to provide a multicolor light-emitting element that utilizes fluorescence and phosphorescence and is advantageous for practical application. The light-emitting element has a stacked-layer structure of a first light-emitting layer containing a host material and a fluorescent substance, a separation layer containing a substance having a hole-transport property and a substance having an electron-transport property, and a second light-emitting layer containing two kinds of organic compounds that form an exciplex and a substance that can convert triplet excitation energy into luminescence. Note that a light-emitting element in which light emitted from the first light-emitting layer has an emission spectrum peak on the shorter wavelength side than an emission spectrum peak of the second light-emitting layer is more effective.

  • Patent number: 10419692
    Abstract: In an image pickup apparatus having an image pickup unit, a color difference signal, which is generated from signals obtained from the visible light pixels and including the near-infrared light region, and a color difference signal, which is generated by removing the signals of the near-infrared light region, are combined, at a combination ratio that is in accordance with a saturation degree of the signal components of the visible light region, and then outputted. In this way, the hue can be reproduced with colors close to colors viewed by a person. A similar processing may be performed for the brightness signals. If the color difference signal generated by removing the signals of the near-infrared light region exhibits, for example, a negative value, then the signals of the near-infrared light region may be added again.
