A composite structure formation method includes the steps of storing a plurality of pre-formed controlled particles in a storage mechanism, supplying the controlled particles from the storage mechanism to an aerosolation mechanism constantly, disaggregating the supplied controlled particles into a plurality of the fine particles in the aerosolation mechanism to form an aerosol in which an entire contents of the controlled particles including the fine particles are dispersed in the gas; and spraying all of the fine particles in the aerosol toward the substrate to form a composite structure of the structure and the substrate. The controlled particles are controlled so that bonding strength between the fine particles includes a mean compressive fracture strength sufficient to substantially avoid disaggregation during the supply step, but which permits the controlled particles to be substantially completely disaggregated in the disaggregation step.

According to an aspect of the invention, an optical receptacle, comprising: a fiber stub including an optical fiber, a ferrule, and an elastic member, the optical fiber including cladding and a core for conducting light, the ferrule having a through-hole fixing the optical fiber, the elastic member being filled into the through-hole of the ferrule with the optical fiber; and a holder holding the fiber stub, the through-hole of the ferrule including a small diameter portion and a large diameter portion, the optical fiber being disposed in the small diameter portion, the large diameter portion being provided on a side opposite to a side to be optically connected to a plug ferrule, the optical fiber being disposed in the small diameter portion inside the through-hole of the ferrule over the entire region of the optical fiber, the elastic member having substantially the same refractive index as the core, being filled into the small diameter portion and the large diameter portion, and being polished to cause at least a portion of the elastic member to be a flat surface portion at an end surface of the fiber stub on the side opposite to the side to be optically connected to the plug ferrule. By disposing the optical fiber in the small diameter portion of the through-hole of the ferrule over the entire region of the optical fiber, the breaking and/or cracking of the optical fiber and the decrease of the coupling efficiency can be prevented. Further, by setting the end surface of the elastic member filled into the through-hole of the ferrule to be a flat surface, the decrease of the coupling efficiency due to reflections is prevented without performing processing of the optical fiber end surface; and economic production is made possible.

The present invention relates to a method of expressing an objective protein at a high level and stably as well as for a long period even in the absence of a selection drug with a recombinant mammal cell. More particularly, the present invention relates to a method of producing an objective protein by providing a recombinant mammal cell having multiple copies of the exogenous objective protein gene expression unit integrated into a hypoxanthine-phosphoribosyl transferase enzyme (hprt) gene locus and culturing said cell.

A float rise speed control tank in a flush toilet is formed so that when the flush water level inside a flush water tank rises and the flush water level reaches a window due to supply of flush water into the flush water tank by a water supply device, the inflow into the float rise speed control tank by flush water in the flush water tank from a window formed above the bottom edge part of the float causes the rise speed of the flush water level in the float rise speed control tank to increase more than the rise speed of the flush water in the flush water tank.

The bowl portion of the flush toilet includes a bowl-shaped waste receiving surface and a rim portion formed on a top edge of the bowl portion. The rim portion includes a rim inside wall portion located on an inner side of the top edge of the bowl portion. The rim inside wall portion has a rim inside surface located at a lower area of the rim inside wall portion and a rim inside wall upper sloped surface having a section in a vertical plane, the shape of the section being sloped from an upper edge of the rim inside surface to an upper edge of the rim inside wall portion. The ratio between the height of the rim inside surface and the height of the rim inside wall upper sloped surface is 1:1 to 6:1 in a section in a vertical plane at any area other than a rear area.
