  • Patent number: 9679738
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a lens-less Foucault method wherein a transmission electron microscope objective lens (5) is turned off, an electron beam crossover (11, 13) is matched with a selected area aperture (65), and the focal distance of a first imaging lens (61) can be changed to enable switching between a sample image observation mode and a sample diffraction pattern observation mode, characterized in that a deflector (81) is disposed in a stage following the first imaging lens (61), and conditions for an irradiating optical system (4) can be fixed after conditions for the imaging optical system have been determined. This allows a lens-less Foucault method to be implemented in a common general-use transmission electron microscope with no magnetic shielding lens equipped, without burdening the operator.

  • Patent number: 9602010
    Abstract: An insulated DC power supply includes a voltage transformer, a switching device and a primary-side regulating circuit. The voltage transformer includes primary and secondary windings and an auxiliary winding. The switching device causes current to flow intermittently through the primary winding. The primary-side regulating circuit receives a voltage proportional to a current flowing through the primary winding of the transformer, and a voltage proportional to a voltage induced in the auxiliary winding of the transformer to generate and output a drive pulse for turning on or off the switching device. The primary-side regulating circuit includes an ON/OFF signal generator circuit and first and second timer circuits. The switching device is turned off upon expiration of the first timer circuit, and the ON/OFF signal generator circuit does not generate a signal for turn-on of the switching device when the second timer circuit expires.

  • Publication number: 20170071575
    Abstract: An ultrasonic diagnostic apparatus according to an embodiment includes filter processing circuitry and generation circuitry. The filter processing circuitry performs a filter process of removing a still or minute-moving signal on reflected wave signals of an ultrasonic wave transmitted a plurality of times in the same scanning line. The generation circuitry generates reflected wave data through a phasing addition process using reflected wave signal of each channel after the filter process performed by the filter processing circuitry.

  • Publication number: 20170054898
    Abstract: Predetermined processing is reliably performed on an image captured when a person serving as a photographic subject is photographed. When a person's face is detected in an image captured by an imaging section, a control section performs predetermined image processing on the captured image. If a person's face is not detected, the control section judges whether the predetermined processing is required to be performed on the captured image and, when judged that the predetermined processing is required to be performed, gives an instruction to perform the predetermine processing on the captured image.
