  • Publication number: 20160168755
    Abstract: A nanofiber producing apparatus 10 includes a spinning solution jetting means 11 having a conductive nozzle 13 for jetting a stock spinning solution for nanofiber production, an electrode 14 located away from the nozzle 13, a voltage generating means 101 generating a voltage between the nozzle 13 and the electrode 14, an air jetting means 15 located at such a position as to direct an air jet between the nozzle 13 and the electrode 14, and a nanofiber collecting means. The voltage generating means 101 generates a voltage so that the nozzle 13 serves as a positive pole and the electrode 14 as a negative pole. The electrode 14 is covered, on almost the entire area of its side facing the nozzle 13, with a covering 17 having a dielectric exposed on the surface thereof. The dielectric exposed on the surface of the covering has a thickness of 0.8 mm or greater.

  • Patent number: 6978170
    Abstract: Two current electrodes 2 and 3 are arranged on a circumference of a subject 1, a distance between the two current electrodes being sufficiently shorter than a circumferential length of the subject 1. A current source 4 passes a current between the two current electrodes. A measuring electrode 5 is arranged adjacent to one of the two current electrodes 2 and 3. A measuring electrode 11 is arranged substantially opposite to the two current electrodes 2 and 3 across the subject 1. A voltmeter 7 measures a voltage generated between the measuring electrodes 5 and 11. A body fat computing unit 25 computes the quantity of subcutaneous fat 8 of the subject 1 according to the voltage measured with the voltmeter 7.

  • Publication number: 20050135782
    Abstract: To realize an information processing apparatus for editing data which enables editing of data intuitively with a simple operation. A track segment is displayed at a position corresponding to a track number on a first coordinate axis in a track segment display area, with a range corresponding to the period from the start time to the end time of the track on a second coordinate axis, so that it is possible to intuitively notify a user of the place in the order and the performance time of each track based on the position relationship among track segments and the length thereof. Furthermore, in response to an operation to move a track segment along the first coordinate axis, the track number of a track corresponding to the track segment is changed; the order of tracks is also changed; and in addition, the track segment is displayed as having moved to the position corresponding to the changed track number and the changed place in the order.

  • Publication number: 20020072926
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus obviates the need for paying attention to the format of a data content, and permits immediate use of the data content in a desired format. The information processing apparatus includes: a record controller for controlling a record in which first data identifying a content, second data identifying a first file for storing the content in a first format, and third data identifying a second file for storing the content in a second format are correlated; a specifier for specifying the content on the basis of the first data; a selector for selecting either the first file or the second file in association with the specified content; and a manipulator for manipulating the first file or the second file on the basis of the second data or the third data in association with either the first file or the second file, whichever has been selected.
