Supermassive black hole binaries may exist in the centers of active galactic nuclei such as quasars and radio galaxies, and mergers between galaxies may result in the formation of supermassive binaries during the course of galactic evolution. Using the very-long-baseline interferometer, we imaged the radio galaxy 3C 66B at radio frequencies and found that(More)
Both in the Faraday Rotation Measure and the intrinsic polarization angle, new features are revealed to indicate a helical magnetic field operating along the jet of the bright active galactic nuclei 3C 273. The helical field has been suggested to be related to the formation and collimation of jets by magnetohydrodynamic models. The distribution of the RM(More)
We investigate whether a pc-scale jet of 3C345 is dominated by a normal plasma or an electron-positron plasma. We present a general condition that a jet component becomes optically thick for synchrotron self-absorption, by extending the method originally developed by Reynolds et al. The general condition gives a lower limit of the electron number density,(More)
On account of the morphological variations of lingual dental surfaces, indirect bonding systems have been used for bonding lingual orthodontic brackets. Improvements in bracket seating and bonding systems have enabled the development of KommonBase, a precise direct bonding system. KommonBase is characterized by a large bonding base, which can achieve a good(More)
A major goal of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) is to make accurate images with resolutions of tens of milliarcseconds, which at submillimeter (submm) wavelengths requires baselines up to ∼15 km. To develop and test this capability, a Long Baseline Campaign (LBC) was carried out from 2014 September to late November, culminating in(More)
8-Gsps 1-bit Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs) were newly developed toward the realization of the wideband observation. The development of the wideband ADCs is one of the most essential developments for the radio interferometer. To evaluate its performance in interferometric observations, the time (phase) stability and frequency response were measured(More)
Levels of radiation exposure in Chilean altiplano primarily due to cosmic rays were measured with pocket gamma ray dosimeters and a handy neutron rem counter. Comparison data were also taken at Antofagasta, Santiago, Mitaka, and on board the aircrafts to/from the site. Significant enhancement of dose rates was found at the ALMA site: Measured gamma ray dose(More)
The VSOP terminal is a new data-acquisition system for the Very-Long-Baseline Interferometry (VLBI). This terminal was primarily designed for ground telescopes in the VLBI Space Observatory Programme (VSOP). New technologies; higher-order sampling and digital filtering techniques, were introduced in the development. A cassette cart was also introduced,(More)
Since the year 2000, our hospital has been equipped with an intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) facility. Before IMRT is administered, the absorbed dose is measured by the ionization chamber to provide verification for the IMRT procedure. In utilizing the current point dose evaluation, large discrepancies have been experienced when the measured(More)
