  • Publication number: 20040246597
    Abstract: There is provided an optical system 8 for a micro analyzing system capable of precisely analyzing a sample. In the optical system 8, after light beams leaving the tip of an optical fiber 14 pass through a condensing part 13, a sample moving in a separation passage 6 due to electrophoresis is irradiated with the light beams. The condensing part 13 includes a first aspherically cylindrical surface 10 being convex toward the optical fiber 14, a second aspherically cylindrical surface 11 being convex on the opposite side to the first aspherically cylindrical surface 10, and a third aspherically cylindrical surface 12 being convex toward the second aspherically cylindrical surface 11. The first through third aspherically cylindrical surfaces 10 through 12 are arranged in that order from the side of the optical fiber 14 toward the separation passage 6.

  • Patent number: 5103319
    Abstract: A setup apparatus constructed separately from an image scanning and recording apparatus. Light from a document is received by a pickup lens disposed above the document, and is branched by suitable optics. One of the branched incident beams is projected to a focusing screen disposed adjacent the pickup lens for displaying an erect image of a setup position. The other beam is passed through an aperture disposed at an optically equivalent position to the focusing screen, from which density level of the setup position is measured for display on a density indicator.

  • Patent number: 4637710
    Abstract: A drum type image scanning and recording apparatus, with a drum around whose cylindrical external surface a film is fixedly wrapped and a drum-driving apparatus mechanically coupled to the drum for rotating the drum, has a string tensionally stretched nearby and along the external surface of the drum in parallel with the drum axis by a string stretching device. A swing detecting device detects the swing of the string produced when part of the film and the string are in contact with each other, as when the drum is rotating and the film separates away from the drum external surface. The rotation of the drum is stopped in response to an abnormality detection signal from the swing detecting device, thus precluding significant physical separation of the film from the drum.

  • Patent number: 4558214
    Abstract: Disclosed is an improved transmission illumination device for use in a picture scanning device such as an electronic picture scanner which can illuminate an annular region around an illuminated spot. This annular illuminated spot is produced by using an annular convex lens as part of an optical system. Since the area surrounding the illuminated spot is also illuminated, finding a desired spot on an original picture is greatly facilitated. Having an illuminated annular region does not create any problem which may arise from flare light if an iris diaphragm is provided in a light receiving head for the exclusion of the light emitted from the illuminated annular area.
