An oil-in-water (O/W) emulsion, in which the oil phase is semi-solid fat, is easily destabilized when stored below the crystallization temperature of the oil phase. Such destabilization, characterized by loss of fluidity at chilled temperature and oil-water separation after re-heating, is caused by inter-droplet bridging of fat crystals protruding out of(More)
Using macrobeam and microbeam techniques, we performed synchrotron radiation X-ray diffraction (SR-XRD) analyses of fat crystallization in water-in-oil (W/O) emulsion, in combination with DSC and polarized optical microscopic observation. Particular focus was on the crystallization of the fats around water droplets in the W/O emulsion systems using food(More)
Triacylglycerols (TAGs) are the major components of fats and oils and biologically important organic molecules along with proteins and carbohydrates. In industrial applications, TAGs are the main components in cream, margarine, and confectionery fats in foods and as matrix materials in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. The physical behavior of TAGs influences(More)

A cool-temperate fly, Drosophila triauraria, stores fat, triacylglycerol (TAG), primarily in the fat storage organ, the fat body, and then diapauses to pass the winter in imago stage. TAG crystallization and ice formation taking place in a living fly by lowering temperatures were studied, in order to clarify the relationship between crystallizations and the(More)
We observed small scale magnetic flux emergence in a sunspot moat region by the Solar Optical Telescope (SOT) aboard the Hinode satellite. We analyzed filtergram images observed in the wavelengths of Fe 6302 Å, G-band and Ca II H. In Stokes I images of Fe 6302 Å, emerging magnetic flux were recognized as dark lanes. In G-band, they showed their shapes(More)
The Flare Monitoring Telescope (FMT) was constructed in 1992 at Hida observatory in Japan to investigate the long-term variation of solar activity and explosive events (Kurokawa et al. 1995). It has been part of the international coordinated observations program (STEP) since 1991. The FMT consists of five solar imaging telescopes and one guidescope. The(More)
The Flare Monitoring Telescope (FMT) was constructed in 1992 at Hida Observatory in Japan to investigate the long-term variation of solar activity and explosive events. It has five solar imaging telescopes that simultaneously observe the full-disk Sun at different wavelengths around the H-alpha absorption line or in different modes. Therefore, the FMT can(More)
It is very important for understanding and prediction of the space weather situation to accurately observe erupting phenomena on the solar surface that are initial boundary conditions of all processes. Therefore, we are preparing to create a world-wide observational network with ground-based solar telescopes that is called as "Continuous H-alpha Imaging(More)
