Chiba University and it is also abbreviated as Chibadai is a national university in the city of Chiba, Japan. It offers Doctoral degrees in education as part of a coalition with Tokyo Gakugei University, Saitama University, and Yokohama National University. The university was formed in 1949 from existing educational institutions in Chiba Prefecture, and absorbed over a period of years Chiba Medical University , a preparatory department of the Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Chiba Normal School , Tokyo Polytechnic High School , Chiba Horticultural High School, and others. Chiba University was reincorporated in 2010 under the National University Corporation Act. Chiba University has been ranked 75th on the Asia University Rankings 2013 Top 100 by "The Times Higher Education".Currently, Chiba University consists of nine faculties, the university library, the university hospital and other educational and research facilities. With 11,179 students in the undergraduate program, it has long been one of the largest universities in Japan. As for the graduate school, there are about 2,354 students in ten master's programs and 1,220 in nine doctoral programs.Chiba University is proud of its productive faculties and varied courses, the particulars of which will be introduced in the following sections. The University's four campuses, Nishi-Chiba, Inohana, Matsudo, and Kashiwanoha are ideally located in Chiba Prefecture, an area noted for its industrial, intellectual and international achievements. In recent decades Chiba has undergone rapid development which in many ways rivals the neighboring Tokyo Metropolis. Many national projects have been based in Chiba Prefecture, and now Chiba has one of the main international transport centers and one of the largest business centers in Japan . Many new academic and industrial complexes for the advanced science are located in Chiba Prefecture. The developments in Chiba today are representative of tomorrow's Japan. Matters occurring in the most progressive parts of Japan, or even in the world, will provide rich materials for research in various aspects of the human, social, industrial and natural science.Chiba University has achieved a high degree of participation in international cooperative research projects. Chiba University presently has a large body of international research scholars and students studying on its various campuses. As of 2009, there are approximately 477 international researcher and 957 international students. Starting October, 1996, Chiba University launched a one-year scholarship program designed to provide international students with the opportunity to take courses in English. Wikipedia.

This invention provides a simple projector system that can be operated by a user who is not an expert of image processing technology. The projector system comprises a projector (1), a personal computer (2), a mouse (3), and a calibration board (4). A checker flag pattern is added to the calibration board (4), and an intersection point serves as a marker. A cursor, which is projected from the projector (1) onto the calibration board (4), is used as an intuitive input interface. An operator, while seeing the cursor, operates the mouse (3), thereby placing the cursor onto the calibration marker. In this state, the operator clicks the mouse (3), thereby selecting the calibration marker. The operator then acquires the corresponding projection image coordinates on the basis of the selection instruction.

Photocatalytic reduction of carbon dioxide to fuels using solar energy is an attractive option for simultaneously capturing this major greenhouse gas and solving the shortage of sustainable energy. Efforts to demonstrate the photocatalytic reduction of CO 2 are reviewed herein. Although the photocatalytic results depended on the reaction conditions, such as the incident/absorbing light intensity from the sun or a simulated solar light source, the performance of different systems is compared. When the reactants included CO 2 and water, it was necessary to determine whether the products were derived from CO 2 and not from impurities that accumulated on/in the catalysts as a result of washing, calcination, or pretreatment in a moist environment. Isotope labeling of 13CO 2 was effective for this evaluation using Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and mass spectrometry (MS). Comparisons are limited to reports in which the reaction route was verified spectroscopically, the C source was traced isotopically, or sufficient kinetic analyses were performed to verify the photocatalytic events. TiO 2 photocatalytically produced methane at the rate of ∼0.1μmolh -1g cat -1. In aqueous solutions, formic acid, formaldehyde, and methanol were also produced. When TiO 2 was atomically dispersed in zeolites or ordered mesoporous SiO 2 and doped with Pt, Cu, N, I, CdSe, or PbS, the methane and CO formation rates were greater, reaching 1-10μmolh -1g cat -1. As for semiconductors other than TiO 2, CdS, SiC, InNbO 4, HNb 3O 8, Bi 2WO 6, promoted NaNbO 3, and promoted Zn 2GeO 4 produced methane or methanol at rates of 1-10μmolh -1g cat -1, and promoted A IILa 4Ti 4O 15 produced CO at a rate greater than 10μmolh -1g cat -1, in addition to the historically known ZnO and GaP (formaldehyde and methanol formation). The photocatalytic reduction of CO 2 was also surveyed with hydrogen, because hydrogen can be obtained from water photosplitting by utilizing natural light. CO was formed at a rate of ∼1μmolh -1g cat -1 using TiO 2, ZrO 2, MgO, and Ga 2O 3, whereas both CO and methanol were formed at a rate of 0.1-1μmolh -1g cat -1 using layered-double hydroxides consisting of Zn, Cu, Al, and Ga. When hydrogen is used, in addition to identifying the origin of the carbon, it is critical to confirm that the products are photocatalytically formed, not thermally produced via CO 2 hydrogenation. The feasibility of the strategy involving the recycling of a sacrificial electron donor and the direct supply of protons and electrons released from water oxidation catalysts to photocatalysts for the reduction of CO 2 to fuels has been demonstrated. However, based on the results obtained to date, it is clear that the practical use of the photocatalytic reduction of CO 2 as one possible solution for global warming and the world's energy problems requires the development of more efficient photocatalysts. © 2012 Elsevier B.V..
