  • Patent number: 10350885
    Abstract: A liquid discharge device performs recording by use of a liquid discharge head including discharge ports to discharge a liquid, pressure generation elements to generate energy to be used to discharge the liquid, and pressure chambers communicating with the discharge ports. The liquid discharge device includes a control unit to control a temperature of the liquid discharge head by applying heat with heating elements arranged in divided areas of a region of the liquid discharge head where the discharge ports are arranged. When there is recording data for the discharge port in a certain one of the divided areas, the control unit causes the heating element in the divided area to generate heat, and when there is no recording data for the discharge port in the certain divided area, the control unit keeps the heating element in the certain divided area from generating heat.

  • Publication number: 20150177125
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a measurement system which includes an optical waveguide, magnetic fine particles, a first magnetic field application unit, a second magnetic field application unit and a controller is provided. A first material specifically bonding with a target substance is immobilized on a surface of the optical waveguide. A second material specifically bonding with the target substance is immobilized on a surface of the magnetic fine particle. The first magnetic field application unit generates a magnetic field that moves the magnetic fine particles in a direction away from the optical waveguide. The second magnetic field application unit generates a magnetic field that moves the magnetic fine particles in a direction of approaching the optical waveguide. The controller controls the first magnetic field application unit to apply the magnetic field intermittently in a state where the second magnetic field application unit applies the magnetic field.
