  • Patent number: 9346372
    Abstract: A gear shifting control device is provided with a driving motor-generator, an automatic transmission provided in a drivetrain and a gear shifting controller. The automatic transmission has a P range, an N range and a D range as selectable range positions. The gear shifting controller changes the gears in the automatic transmission. The gear shifting controller sets the N range of the automatic transmission to be a range over which the driving motor-generator is not caused to generate torque even when a operation for depressing an accelerator pedal has been performed, and places a coupling clutch in an engaged state in first gear when the N range is selected.

  • Patent number: 9025627
    Abstract: A laser device 1 demultiplexes seed light L0 into a plurality of beams of laser light L1 and then continuously optically amplifies the plurality of beams of the laser light L1 with an amplifier 14. Therefore, its amplification factor can be set higher than that in the case of amplifying pulsed laser light. When producing multiplexed light L3 by multiplexing the beams of the amplified laser light L1 with a diffraction grating 16, respective phases of the beams of the laser light L1 are controlled such that an output peak of the multiplexed light L3 repeatedly appears at a converging position P1 at a predetermined time interval. This produces pulsed laser light at the converging position P1 from a plurality of beams of laser light L2 amplified at a high amplification factor. Hence, this laser device 1 can produce pulsed laser light with a high output.
