  • Patent number: 10029236
    Abstract: There is disclosed a catalytic substrate surface where in the substrate surface comprises particles in the size range 2-500 nm, said particles comprising TiO2, wherein at least 50 wt % of the Ti in the particles is leachable in 37% HCl. A method for its manufacture is also provided. One advantage is that the higher fractions of Ti leachable in 37% HCl give a better coating with better adhesion, in particular on objects comprising protonatable acidic oxides, such as SiO2. The higher fraction of Ti leachable in 37% HCl gives better transparency and dispersion stability. The resulting surface exhibits both improved activity and improved adhesion of the particles. There is no color change and/or speckles on the substrate, allowing anti-pollution surfaces to be produced also on decorative surfaces. The TiO2-comprising layer is thin and easily applied in the production line.

  • Patent number: 9924082
    Abstract: An imaging apparatus includes an illumination unit, an imaging unit, an illumination control unit, a target detection unit, a radiation illuminance, and a comparison unit. The illumination unit emits infrared light. The imaging unit captures an image of an object. The illumination control unit controls an illumination intensity of the illumination unit for irradiating the object. The target detection unit detects at least a portion of a human body contained within an irradiation range of the illumination unit. The radiation illuminance calculation unit calculates a radiation illuminance of the illumination unit with respect to the portion of the human body detected by the target detection unit. The comparison unit compares the radiation illuminance calculated by the radiation illuminance calculation unit with a predetermined threshold value. The illumination control unit controls the illumination intensity of the illumination unit based on a comparison result of the comparison unit.
