  • Publication number: 20220344226
    Abstract: A lid body includes a base containing an alloy of iron and nickel, a first film positioned on a lower surface of the base and containing nickel, and a second film positioned on a lower surface of the first film and containing copper. During welding of the lid body, penetration of crystal grain boundaries of the base by Cu of the second film is reduced by the first film. Therefore, occurrence of cracks in the base is reduced and thus a package with high airtightness can be formed.

  • Publication number: 20220285014
    Abstract: A time period that is required for dealing with the need to access another place in advance of a device which is generating an alarm is reduced. Information of a task being presently executed by a laboratory technician present in a clinical laboratory is acquired from a responsible person schedule management table. Information based on a distance between the present position of the laboratory technician present in the clinical laboratory and a positional information reference point that indicates the position first accessed by the laboratory technician to deal with the alarm and that is specified from an alarm information management table and an alarm handling access position management table is also acquired. Based on the acquired information, ordering for issuing a notification of the alarm of which generation has been detected is performed for the laboratory technician present in the clinical inspection room.

  • Publication number: 20220247885
    Abstract: Provided is an image processing apparatus that enhances the distinctiveness of document having a color portion and outputs in monochrome. A monochrome visual determination unit determines whether or not the distinctiveness of the color portion is low when the document data having the color portion is output in monochrome. This color portion includes characters, electronic marks, and graphs, and they are after a specific keyword. A monochrome presentation unit presents to a user a warning or a result of modification when there is the color portion that the distinctiveness is determined to be low by the monochrome visual determination unit. The monochrome presentation unit presents a state in which the document data is output in monochrome by displaying a preview.

  • Publication number: 20220206198
    Abstract: A light-absorbing composition according to the present invention includes: a light absorber; a curable resin; and an alkoxysilane. The alkoxysilane includes a dialkoxysilane. Since the alkoxysilane of the light-absorbing composition includes the dialkoxysilane, desired flexibility is likely to be imparted to a light-absorbing layer owing to an organic functional group of the dialkoxysilane while a strong skeleton having a siloxane bond is formed in the light-absorbing layer.

  • Patent number: 9437857
    Abstract: A spacer disposed between first and second unit cells has a corrugated portion. The corrugated portion includes first and second protrusions alternating continuously and repeatedly in a vertical direction. The first protrusions protrude from a center in the thickness direction toward the first unit cell to form clearances that function as cooling passages between the first protrusion and the second unit cell. The second protrusions protrude from the center in the thickness direction toward the second unit cell to form clearances that function as cooling passages between the second protrusions and the first unit cell. The spacer includes a straight portion extending in a direction crossing the cooling passages so as to prevent elongation of the corrugated portion in a direction perpendicular to the cooling passages.
