The charge decay time is high with surface discharge damaged caused (in air/[LN.
The hidden variable in time possibility first presented in [1] gives a deterministic approach that attempts to explain the distribution in decay time as a result of a compatible distribution in an additional internal property within the particles.
c]) was also measured to determine the decay time from after a reflection situation to a fully decayed signal.
As seen, using multiple vias improves reduces the decay time as compared to a single via, but not to the extent of a microvia.
Computer software can then analyze the change in the decay time of selected channels of different frequencies simultaneously.
The natural decay time of the cavity depends on the efficiency of the reflective end mirrors, and is in a separate measurement dimension than the intensity noise of the light source.
The neutron pulse from the moderator has two decay time constants.
