The Nagoya Institute of Technology , or less commonly Nitech, is a public highest-level educational institution of science and technology located in Nagoya, Japan. Nagoya Institute of Technology was founded on 1905 as Nagoya Higher Technical School, renamed Nagoya College of Technology in 1944 then merged under the new educational system with the Aichi Prefectural College of Technology to be refounded as Nagoya Institute of Technology in 1949. Finally in 2004 it was refounded as Nagoya University Corporation Nagoya Institute of Technology. Wikipedia.

A contact lens is provided as a hydrate of a copolymer of at least three components including (I) a both terminal-polymerizable silicone oligomer component that forms a hydrophobic region (A) in the copolymer, (II) a hydrophilic component that forms a hydrophilic region (C) in the copolymer, and (III) a hydrophobic monomer component having a molecular weight of at most 700 that forms the hydrophilic region (C) together with the component (II) and also contributes to form an intermediate region (B) which does not solvate with a hydrophilic solvent between said hydrophobic region (A) and hydrophilic region (C), wherein the intermediate region (B) shows a volume rate of 5 to 40% with respect to the region (A) in the copolymer, and the contact lens is transparent and free from bubbles therein. The contact lens is not only transparent but also is characterized by a combination of a high oxygen permeability, and a balance between softness and mechanical properties. The lens is produced through a process including steps of stirring a material liquid comprising at least three components of the above-mentioned components (I), (II) and (III) under a stirring power of 5 - 10000 W/m^(3) per unit volume of the material liquid for at least 10 minutes, and the injecting the stirred material liquid into a lens mold to polymerize the material liquid.


When recognizing leads by processing an image captured by a camera of a component provided with a single row or multiple rows of leads of the same size and shape at a regular pitch, waveform analysis of a change pattern of brightness (pixel value) along multiple lines set in a vertical, a horizontal, or a diagonal direction of the image is performed so as to identify a region in which the brightness changes cyclically as a lead recognition target region in which there is a possibility of a lead existing. Then, image recognition of leads is performed in the lead recognition target region. By this, even in cases in which there are metal portions or the like that are easily confusable with leads in a region outside the lead recognition target region, the mis-recognition of these metal portions or the like as leads is prevented, thus the recognition accuracy of leads is improved.

A contact lens is provided as a hydrate of a copolymer of at least three components including (I) a both terminal-polymerizable silicone oligomer exhibiting a viscosity of at least 200 mPa s at room temperature, (II) a hydrophilic monomer component having an ethylenically unsaturated group, and (III) a hydrophobic monomer component having a molecular weight of at most 700, wherein the contact lens exhibits an elastic-modulus ratio determined as a ratio of a rupture elastic modulus to an initial elastic modulus in a range of 0.8 - 1.2. The contact lens is not only transparent but also is characterized by a combination of a high oxygen permeability and a balance between softness and mechanical properties. The lens is produced through a process including steps of stirring a material liquid comprising at least three components of the above-mentioned components (I), (II) and (III) under a stirring power of 5 - 10000 W/m^(3) per unit volume of the material liquid for at least 10 minutes, and then injecting the stirred material liquid into a lens mold to polymerize the material liquid.

The introduction of SOnCF3 groups into organic compounds drastically changes their biological and physicochemical properties. It has been demonstrated that besides achiral chromatography sublimation is the major concern in the accurate determination of the enantiomeric purity of fluorinated compounds. Some of the compounds containing SOnCF3 groups would be volatile. Hence it might be highly possible to indicate the phenomenon of self-disproportionation of enantiomers during the purification stage of them by achiral chromatography and/or distillation in the case of chiral compounds. As a class of important fluorinated compounds, C-SOnCF3 compounds find increasing utility in agrochemical and pharmaceutical applications.
