To provide a multiplexer that makes it possible to achieve a reduction in size and that minimizes the influence of the expansion of laser light on a multiplexing unit. A multiplexer is provided with a plurality of waveguides, multiplexing units that are provided at an intermediate location within the waveguides, and laser light sources, wherein: the first multiplexing unit is arranged at a position that is closest to the laser light sources; and the laser light sources that have an optical axis at a position that is separated from the transmission axis of the visible light that is introduced into the first multiplexing unit are arranged so that the optical axis is inclined with respect to the transmission axis and the outer periphery of laser light that expands at a predetermined expansion angle passes in front of the first multiplexing unit.


This work demonstrates the possibility of rearranging nanoporous cavity structures in crystalline syndiotactic polystyrene (s-PS) by applying external stresses. A molecular dynamics (MD) simulation was performed for the s-PS crystal with increasing or decreasing of each stress tensor component, starting from the nanoporous ε form. Upon uniaxial compression along the b-axis, the ε form was transformed into a lower density porous form, accompanied by significant elongation of the a-axis. The new form, named the S-I form, was stable only under the stress and was transformed into the γ form after release of the stress. The cavity structure was drastically changed by the transition. The straight cylindrical channels in the ε form, which may be used for the separation of organic solvents, were rearranged to narrower zigzag channels in the S-I form, which is suitable for the precise separation of gases. The molecular cavities disappeared after release of the stress, associated with the transition to the γ form. © 2013 American Chemical Society.


The most essential properties of ion channels for their physiologically relevant functions are ion-selective permeation and gating. Among the channel species, the potassium channel is primordial and the most ubiquitous in the biological world, and knowledge of this channel underlies the understanding of features of other ion channels. The strategy applied to studying channels changed dramatically after the crystal structure of the potassium channel was resolved. Given the abundant structural information available, we exploited the bacterial KcsA potassium channel as a simple model channel. In the postcrystal age, there are two effective frameworks with which to decipher the functional codes present in the channel structure, namely reconstitution and re-animation. Complex channel proteins are decomposed into essential functional components, and well-examined parts are rebuilt for integrating channel function in the membrane (reconstitution). Permeation and gating are dynamic operations, and one imagines the active channel by breathing life into the 'frozen' crystal (re-animation). Capturing the motion of channels at the single-molecule level is necessary to characterize the behaviour of functioning channels. Advanced techniques, including diffracted X-ray tracking, lipid bilayer methods and high-speed atomic force microscopy, have been used. Here, I present dynamic pictures of the KcsA potassium channel from the submolecular conformational changes to the supramolecular collective behaviour of channels in the membrane. These results form an integrated picture of the active channel and offer insights into the processes underlying the physiological function of the channel in the cell membrane. © 2015 The Physiological Society.

Free-radical polymerization that involves the polymer transfer reactions, leading to both long-chain branching and scission, as in the cases of high-pressure ethylene polymerization, is considered for a tanks-in-series model. In a tanks-in-series model, the residence time distribution (RTD) becomes narrower to approach that for a plug flow reactor (PFR), as the number of tanks, N increases. The molecular weight distribution approaches rather quickly to that for a PFR, as the N-value increases. On the other hand, the branching density and the radius of gyration of highly branched polymers may show clear differences from that for a PFR, even when N-value is as large as 20. The present theoretical approach would provide great insight into the continuous production processes having complex RTDs. © 2014 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
