    Abstract: A communication apparatus in an embodiment includes a transmission data generation unit, a network interface, and a received data analysis unit. The transmission data generation unit generates transmission data by setting an e-mail address of another apparatus in a BCC item in an e-mail, and setting an e-mail address of the communication apparatus in a To item in the e-mail. The network interface transmits the generated transmission data to an apparatus which is set in the BCC item and the To item, and receives transmission data. The received data analysis unit analyzes the received transmission data, and when the transmission data is data which is transmitted from the communication apparatus, the transmission data is discarded and job registration is not performed, and when the transmission data is not data which is transmitted from the communication apparatus, job registration is performed.

  • Patent number: 8871552
    Abstract: Although Cl (chlorine) is no longer supplied in the course of a first process in which a detecting layer formed by a polycrystalline film or a polycrystalline lamination film by vapor deposition or sublimation is formed, an additional source (e.g., HCl of Cl-containing gas) other than a source is supplied at the start or in the course of the first process. Thus, the detecting layer as the polycrystalline film or the polycrystalline lamination film of CdTe, ZnTe, or CdZnTe can be doped with Cl uniformly in a thickness direction from the start until the end of the first process in film formation. As a result, uniform crystal particles and uniform detection characteristics can be achieved.

  • Publication number: 20140246744
    Abstract: A graphite substrate is accommodated into a chamber where vacuum drawing is performed via a pump. Thereafter, carbon is heated under vacuum, whereby impurities in the carbon are evaporated causing the carbon to be purified. The carbon in the graphite substrate is purified, achieving suppression of the impurities as donor/acceptor elements and also metallic elements in the semiconductor layer of 0.1 ppm or less, the impurities being contained in the carbon in the graphite substrate. As a result, occurrence of leak current or an abnormal leak point enables to be suppressed, and thus abnormal crystal growth in the semiconductor layer enables to be suppressed.

  • Patent number: 8405037
    Abstract: A radiation detector of this invention includes a Cl-doped CdTe or Cl-doped CdZnTe polycrystalline semiconductor film in which defect levels in crystal grains are protected. This is obtained by grinding CdTe or CdZnTe crystal doped with Cl, and preparing the polycrystalline semiconductor film again by using its powder as the source. The defect levels of crystal grain boundaries in the polycrystalline semiconductor film are also protected by further doping the polycrystalline semiconductor film prepared again with Cl. These features enable manufacture of the radiation detector which has excellent sensitivity and response to radiation.

  • Publication number: 20130026468
    Abstract: A graphite substrate is processed to have surface unevenness in a range of 1 ?m to 8 ?m. Thereby, a semiconductor film to be laminated on the graphite substrate has a stable film quality, and thus adhesion of the graphite substrate and the semiconductor layer can be enhanced. When an electron blocking layer is interposed between the graphite substrate and the semiconductor layer, the electron blocking layer is thin and thus the surface unevenness of the graphite substrate is transferred onto the electron blocking layer. Consequently, the electron blocking layer also has surface unevenness approximately in such range. Thus, almost the same effect as a configuration in which the semiconductor layer is directly connected to the graphite substrate can be produced.

  • Publication number: 20120140881
    Abstract: A drive controller varies a bias voltage applied from a bias supply to a conversion layer based on the presence or absence of binning, that is, for a case of carrying out binning where switching elements are driven on the basis of a plurality of rows at a time by a gate drive circuit, and for a case of carrying out no binning where the switching elements are driven on a row-by-row basis by the gate drive circuit. Therefore, in the case of a fluoroscopic mode for acquiring images with binning, a lowering of a dynamic range can be suppressed. In the case of a radiographic mode with no binning, spatial resolution can be made high. That is, a high dynamic range and high spatial resolution can be optimized according to modes of operation.
