Provided are a non-aqueous electrolyte battery and a non-aqueous electrolyte battery system that can be repeatedly charged and that have good storage characteristics in a high-temperature environment, and a method for manufacturing the non-aqueous electrolyte battery. A non-aqueous electrolyte battery of the present invention includes an electrode body in which a positive electrode and a negative electrode are laminated with a separator interposed therebetween, and a non-aqueous electrolyte. The negative electrode has a laminated body including a metal base layer that does not form an alloy with Li, and Al active layers respectively bonded to both faces of the metal base layer, or a laminated body including a metal base layer that is made of a metal selected from Ni, Ti, and Fe, or an alloy thereof, and an Al active layer bonded to the metal base layer. A Li-Al alloy is formed at least on a surface side of each Al active layer. The non-aqueous electrolyte battery of the present invention can be manufactured using a method including: preparing a laminated metal foil in which an Al metal layer is bonded to a metal base layer that does not form an alloy with Li; and forming an Al active layer by forming a Li-Al alloy at least on a surface side of the Al metal layer.

There is provided a method for producing a plated part (plated component) wherein the method suppresses the formation of any electroless plating film at portions other than a predetermined pattern in accordance with a simple and easy production process, and the electroless plating film can be formed at only the predetermined pattern. A method for producing a plated part (plated component) includes: applying a catalyst inactivator to a surface of a base member; irradiating with light or heating a part of the surface of the base member to which the catalyst inactivator is applied; allowing the surface of the base member to retain an electroless plating catalyst; and bringing an electroless plating solution into contact with the surface of the base member retaining the electroless plating catalyst to form an electroless plating film at a light-irradiated portion or a heated portion of the surface.


To provide a power supply control mechanism that can switch an operation mode of a device at users desired optional timing while achieving reduction in size and weight of an electronic device. For this reason, the invention disclosed in the present application includes a power supply control unit that includes a detection terminal and controls a power supply from a power source to a driving circuit, a push switch that can be operated by a user, and a signal generation unit that operates with a power supplied from the power source. The push switch can change a voltage to be applied to the detection terminal according to an operation performed by the user. The signal generation unit outputs a detection signal to be applied to the detection terminal, and stops the output of the detection signal when the voltage of the detection terminal satisfies a predetermined condition. The power supply control unit controls the power supply by detecting that the push switch is operated and the detection signal is stopped on the basis of a change in the voltage applied to the detection terminal, thereby switching an operation mode of a device between at least two modes of a normal operation mode and a sleep mode.

An imaging lens is provided with: a first lens with negative power; a second lens with negative power; a third lens with positive power; and a fourth lens with positive power. The cemented fourth lens is formed from an object side lens with negative power and an image side lens with positive power. The thickness of a resin adhesive layer that bonds the object side lens and the image side lens is 20 m or greater on the optical axis, and when Sg1H is the amount of sag in the image side lens surface of the object side lens and Sg2H is the amount of sag in the object side lens surface of the image side lens. The bonding operation is easy without damage occurring to the cemented surfaces, with a design that takes into account thickness of the resin adhesive layer; therefore various forms of aberration can be corrected.

When download operations get started in unison in conformity to RSS metafile delivery time-and-date information, the traffic is temporarily concentrated to a server, resulting in the risk of a system failure or else. In addition, it is inevitable to periodically check whether an RSS file on Web server is updated or not; so, users must delete update-unnecessary RSS files from those objects to be monitored. In view of this, the periodical update check timing of download control information is dispersed, thereby scattering download requests to the server. The download control information is provided with the information indicating whether such download control information is put under update management and/or expire time-and-date information in case the update management is to be done, whereby an information processing apparatus performs, based on the information, erase processing of the download control information when the download processing is completed.
