  • Publication number: 20200397939
    Abstract: A scattering device includes a position detection unit which detects a position of a user passing through a doorway formed between a first space and a second space adjacent to the first space; a scattering direction determination unit which determines a scattering direction in which liquid, powder, or gas is scattered from proximity of the doorway based on the position of the user detected by the position detection unit; and a scattering unit arranged in the proximity of the doorway to scatter the liquid, the powder, or the gas toward the scattering direction determined by the scattering direction determination unit.

  • Patent number: 9163681
    Abstract: A brake device includes a first member having holders, each of the holder configured to be in contact with a corresponding rolling body and hold the rolling body rotatably; a second member provided in contact with the rolling body and configured to rotate the rolling body in the holder according to a relative displacement with the first member; and a pressing mechanism configured to press the first member and the second member against each other. This makes it possible appropriately to set performance regardless of, for example, a projecting area of a surface of the first member, the surface being pressed by the second member.

  • Publication number: 20150086794
    Abstract: The present invention has an object to provide a glass laminate in which a glass substrate can be easily peeled even after a long-time treatment under high temperature conditions. The present invention relates to a glass laminate including: an inorganic layer-attached supporting substrate including a supporting substrate and an inorganic layer containing at least one kind selected from the group consisting of a metal silicide, a nitride, a carbide and a carbonitride, arranged on the supporting substrate; and a glass substrate peelably laminated on the inorganic layer.

  • Publication number: 20130342794
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a fine structure form such as a wire-grid polarizer 1 comprising a substrate having convex stripes 50 formed at a pitch of at most a visible light wavelength on at least one surface thereof, an inorganic oxide layer 30 covering at least the top 52 of the convex stripes 50, and a fluorinated compound layer 32 formed by treating at least the surface of the inorganic oxide layer 30 with a fluorinated compound having a group reactive with the inorganic oxide, wherein the inorganic oxide layer 30 covering the top 52 of the convex stripes 50 has a thickness Ha of at least 30 nm and a ratio of the thickness Ha to the width Dat (i.e. Ha/Dat) of at most 1.0; and a liquid crystal display device comprising such a fine structure form.

  • Publication number: 20130146402
    Abstract: A first member including a plurality of contacting portions and an absorbing portion capable of absorbing displacement of the contacting portions, a second member provided capable of relatively displacing with respect to the first member by contacting with the plurality of contacting portions, and a pressing mechanism configured to press the first member against the second member are provided. Therefore, for example, since the absorbing portion is capable of absorbing the displacement of the contacting portion, it is possible to make friction performance appropriate by stabilizing an area of a friction place.

  • Publication number: 20120236410
    Abstract: A wire-grid polarizer comprising a light-transmitting substrate 14 having a surface on which a plurality of ridges 12 are formed in parallel with one another at a predetermined pitch with flat portions 13 formed between the ridges 12, each of the ridges 12 having a width narrowing from the bottom toward the top; and a metal layer 20 covering at least one side surface of each ridge 12, the maximum covering thickness of the metal layer on a lower half of the ridge being smaller than the maximum covering thickness of the metal layer on an upper half of the ridge; and a process for producing the first metal layer 20 by vapor-depositing a metal from a direction satisfying tan(?R1±10)=(Pp?Dpb/2)/Hp on the first side surface 16 side, and subsequently vapor-depositing the metal from a direction at an angle satisfying ?R1+5??R2??R1+25.
