  • Patent number: 9662669
    Abstract: A current detection resistor is connected between an output terminal of a high voltage generator and an air motor. A coater current detector detects a coater current supplied to a coater based on a potential difference taking place on both terminals of the current detection resistor. The high-voltage control device serves to discriminate based on the coater current detected by the coater current detector whether the coater is caused to be close to a coating object. When it is discriminated that the coater is caused to be close to the coating object, the high-voltage control device outputs a shut-off signal for shutting off supply of the power supply voltage to the power supply voltage control device.

  • Patent number: 8742371
    Abstract: Measurement data of intensities of fluorescence obtained by directing excitation light onto a subject is acquired. An initial value of an absorption coefficient of the phosphor is set on the basis of a concentration distribution of the phosphor, an intensity distribution of the fluorescence on the basis of an absorption coefficient and a diffusion coefficient (reduced scattering coefficient) of the subject, which are set beforehand, are calculated, and the measurement data is compared with the calculation result. If these are found not to be matched, an absorption coefficient of the phosphor at which the error will be a minimum is estimated by performing an inverse problem calculation using a mathematical model. The calculation of the intensity distribution of the fluorescence and evaluation of the error from the obtained concentration distribution are repeated using the absorption coefficient, and a concentration distribution for which the error is the minimum is acquired.

  • Patent number: 8218132
    Abstract: Particles flowed through a micro-channel are imaged by imaging means. Particle speed measuring means determines the particle speed from the image data. Particle counting means counts the particles flowed for a predetermined time. Particle size measuring means measures the size of the particles. The measurements of the particles flowed at a predetermined timing are managed by data associating means. With this, the speed, number and size of particles flowed through a micro-channel can be determined at a time, and associated data can be obtained.
