  • Publication number: 20190250401
    Abstract: A projection device includes at least one projection module and at least one adjusting structure. The projection module has an optical axis and is adapted to emit an image beam. The image beam is transmitted to a projection target to form a projection image. The adjusting structure includes a base and an adjusting component. The adjusting component is rotatably connected to the base along a first axis, and the projection module is rotatably connected to the adjusting component along the optical axis. The adjusting component and the projection module are adapted to rotate along the first axis such that the projection image moves vertically, and the projection module is adapted to rotate along the optical axis such that the projection image rotates.

  • Patent number: 10345480
    Abstract: A sensor is provided for monitoring a mineral acid dissolved in a liquid. The sensor includes an internal reflection window which, in use, is in direct contact with the liquid. The sensor further includes a mid-infrared light source which directs a beam of mid-infrared radiation into said window for attenuated internal reflection at an interface between the window and the liquid. The sensor further includes a first narrow bandpass filter which preferentially transmits mid-infrared radiation over a band of wavelengths corresponding to an absorbance peak of the dissolved mineral acid to filter internally reflected mid-infrared radiation received from the window. The sensor further includes an infrared detector which detects filtered mid-infrared radiation transmitted through the first filter.
