  • Patent number: 11489170
    Abstract: A fuel cell separator includes a separator main body having a first surface and a second surface, and a first seal member disposed on the first surface. When a region on the first surface of the separator main body corresponding to an electrode member disposed on the second surface is defined as a power generation region, and a region on the first surface of the separator main body corresponding to an in-cell seal member is defined as a seal region, a displacement/vibration reducing member made of polymer is disposed at a part of the seal region. The displacement/vibration reducing member includes multiple protrusions and a coupling portion. When viewed in plan view, an axis line connecting the centers of the figures of the adjacent protrusions does not coincide with a center line passing through the widthwise center of the coupling portion. The coupling portion has a gate cut mark.

  • Patent number: 11456540
    Abstract: An antenna device includes a main reflector (11), a sub-reflector (12) including sub-reflector panels and having a reflecting surface facing a reflecting surface of the main reflector, and a primary emitter (13) to receive a radio wave reflected by the sub-reflector (12). Each of sub-reflector panel drive mechanisms coupled to the sub-reflector panels is finely driven. A phase calculator (171) calculates a relative phase of an element electric-field vector corresponding to each of the sub-reflector panels based on a change in received electric-field strength of the radio wave received by the primary emitter (13) during driving of the sub-reflector panel drive mechanisms, and determines positions of the sub-reflector panels at which a phase distribution on an aperture surface of the main reflector (11) is minimized.
