This method can detect a blank space in an image consisting of some frames and then segments the image into each frame surrounded by a blank space. Since the segmentation is done in a hierarchical way,the sequence can be inferred in which each frame is looked at.The method can also segment an image into frames, even if a frame is not surrounded by a straight line.
The near-infrared spectroscopy can immediately analyze material composition. To simply measure a body fat percentage of small animals, non-invasive method by using this near-infrared spectroscopy has been established.
The usage of traditional molecular sieves are limited, because an exact control of the pore size is very difficult. On the other hand, the pore entrance size of a mesoporous silica covered with temperature-responsive polymer can be precisely controlled by changing the water temperature.
