  • Publication number: 20040052056
    Abstract: This invention provides a cooler having an excellent cooling performance, which is capable of being downsized and low-profiled, an electronic apparatus and a method for fabricating the cooler. The cooler (1) comprises lower board member (10) and upper complex board members. The lower board member (10) is made from plastic material and has a cavity portion (11) for allowing water or vapor to be circulated therein. The upper complex board members comprise board member (20) for a condenser part, upper board member (30), and board member (40) for a wick part. The board members (20) and (40) for the condenser part and the wick part, respectively, are made from metallic material having higher thermal conductivity such as copper and nickel. Each of the members has a groove for allowing them to be served as the condenser and the wick.

  • Patent number: 6549694
    Abstract: To provide a small and lightweight optical switching element with a simple structure capable of fast response, and an optical switching apparatus employing the optical switching element. Optical extraction unit contacts an upper substrate with electrostatic attraction generated between a transparent electrode of the optical extraction unit and a transparent electrode of the upper substrate. In the case that light enters one V-shaped trench of the upper substrate vertically, the light enters the optical extraction unit of the upper substrate and is emitted from a back of the optical extraction unit (a tapered unit). Subsequently, the incident light P1 passes through a lower substrate and is converted into transmission light. With electrostatic attraction generated between a transparent electrode of the lower substrate and a transparent electrode of the optical extraction unit, the optical extraction unit is attracted to a lower substrate side.

  • Patent number: 6522092
    Abstract: A structure in which first to third diodes cause signal beams which are produced by modulating image signals to be incident upon corresponding first to third light deflection scanning sections. The first to third light deflection scanning sections perform line scanning operations using the incident light signal beams. First to third light amplifiers amplify the light signal beams used for the line scanning to necessary brightnesses. A light-wave synthesizer synthesizes the amplified light signal beams into one light beam. A light post scanning section performs frame scanning using the synthesized light beam in order to project it onto a screen. Accordingly, it is possible to display a highly bright image at a low cost on a large screen that realizes high definition and color reproducibility.

  • Publication number: 20020135033
    Abstract: A micro-mirror for deflecting an incident light is disclosed, wherein the micro-mirror comprises: a mirror section for reflecting an incident light issued from a laser diode; a hinge section including a fixed section and a movable section each having a flat surface; and a drive section having a bi-morph structure made of two or more of materials having different heat expansion coefficient for deflecting said mirror section to change relative angle to said incident light.

  • Publication number: 20020126387
    Abstract: An optical multilayer structure material has a structure such that, on a substrate, a conductive layer in contact with the substrate, a gap portion having a size that enables an interference phenomenon to occur and can be changed, and an optical thin film are formed in this order. The circumference of a movable portion in the optical thin film is uniformly supported by supporting portions, suppressing generation of strain due to an internal stress. Through holes are formed in the movable portion to allow an etchant to easily reach a sacrifice layer when forming a gap portion by etching for sacrifice layer. There is provided an optical multilayer structure material having a simple construction, which can suppress generation of strain due to an internal stress and can be advantageously used in an image display apparatus.

  • Publication number: 20020024483
    Abstract: An optical switching element having a simple configuration and high response and capable of performing gradation display by area gradation is provided. In a state where a light extracting portion is in contact with an upper substrate, light enters the light extracting portion from the upper substrate, emits from the back face of the light extracting portion, is passed through a lower substrate, and becomes transmission light. In a state where the light extracting portion is attracted by the lower substrate side, the incident light is totally reflected by a total reflection face, and total reflection light emits from a V-shaped groove. The incident light can be switched in two directions and obtained as the transmission light and the total reflection light.
