An optical receiver that receives a wavelength-multiplexed optical signal is disclosed. The optical receiver implements two or more PD elements each receiving an optical signal contained in the wavelength-multiplexed optical signal, a switch that selects one of photocurrents output from the PD elements, an I/V converter that converts the photocurrent into a voltage signal by a variable resistor whose resistance is adjusted for respective photocurrent, and a digital-to-analog converter. The optical receiver estimates the power of the optical signals from look-up-tables correlating the power of the optical signals with the digitally converted photocurrents at the selected resistance of the variable resistor.

This power conversion device includes: conversion devices for supplying AC powers to respective phases with respect to the neutral point of a three-phase AC system via reactors; and a control unit for controlling the conversion devices. Each conversion device includes: a step-up circuit for stepping up the DC input voltage value of DC power; and a single-phase inverter circuit. For each conversion device, when the absolute value of a voltage target value obtained, as an AC waveform to be outputted, by superimposing a third-order harmonic on a fundamental wave exceeds the inputted DC voltage, the control unit causes the step-up circuit to perform step-up operation to generate the absolute value of the voltage target value and causes the single-phase inverter circuit to only perform necessary polarity inversion, and when the absolute value of the voltage target value is smaller than the inputted DC voltage, the control unit stops the step-up operation of the step-up circuit and causes the single-phase inverter circuit to operate to generate the voltage target value.

A microscope that makes it possible to acquire a hyperspectral image with high data precision includes a light source, an illumination optical system, an image-forming optical system, an imaging unit, a spectroscope, a stage, a drive unit, and a control unit. The illumination optical system converges, at a converging angle , illuminating light in a wavelength band included in the near-infrared region output from the light source, and emits the converged illuminating light onto the object being observed. The image-forming optical system forms an image based on transmitted and scattered light generated by the observed object by emission of the illuminating light onto the observed object. The sin is set to a value that does not exceed the numerical aperture of an objective lens that receives the transmitted and scattered light from the observed object.
