The Maxwell-Wagner-Sillars (MWS) interfacial polarization effect was seen in the dielectric permittivity curve for the two-phase semicrystalline polymer, which was absent for its amorphous counterpart (7).
Some systems may polarize fairly rapidly while others may take many days or weeks for the polarization effect to completely form.
The core polarization effect is not very noticeable for sodium but is large for potassium.
0] is the permittivity of free space, [Omega] is the angular frequency, [Tau] is the characteristic relaxation time, 0 [less than] [Beta] [less than] 1 is an empirical parameter representing the distribution of relaxation times, Co, Zo, and 0 [less than] n [less than] 1 are parameters (based on an effective electrode consideration (14)) representing the electrode polarization effect.
Dick Swanson, SunPower's founder and CTO, noted, "We believe that the surface polarization effect will be seen in many types of high-efficiency crystalline solar cells.
IP is the use of electricity to pass a current through the ground to measure resistivity and induced polarization effect.
single-mode optical fiber, the possibility of measuring the polarization effects of excitation 532, 633 and 785 nm, profilometry - auto focus on the specimen surface, expansion spectral range up to 10 cm-1, the extension of about 633 nm excitation, upgrade control and evaluation software.
Seven contributions offer an overview of natural photonic structures and coverage of optical applications of biomolecules, polarization effects and their applications, biomimetic nanostructures for anti-reflection devices, control of iridescence (the case of butterfly scales), optical materials using silk, and fluorescence control in natural green fluorescent protein-based photonic structures of reef corals.
The sectors of the generator are compared in terms of the main polarization effects, and the 'design of experiments' approach is used to study the collected experimental data and to relate the dependent and independent variables with analytical expressions.
Braun and his Xerion colleagues believe that they may have found a way to greatly reduce the polarization effects of current batteries, thereby greatly increasing power and density.
