Related to Pulse Length: Pulse duration

pulse duration (P.D., PD)

(in ultrasonics) a measure of the time a transducer oscillates for each pulse. The shorter the pulse duration, the better the axial resolution.

High frequency improves axial resolution at all depths because spatial pulse length is shorter.
We suggest that combining very short electric pulses from different locations results in the desired current density and pulse length in the target tissue.
In addition to the Auto settings, the IR2 includes options to switch between long and short pulse lengths based on navigation conditions and also an option to set the radar rotation to Double Speed, which is especially useful for vessels traveling over 15 knots.
Special Purpose: Characterization of high-voltage and high-current devices excerpt from the specification (Absolute minimum requirement) High current measurement: 1200A/10V and 400 A/40V (minimum pulse length tpulse_min = 10us) High voltage measurement: 10kV/10mA (permanent) 10kV/20mA (peak).

The key technology behind the ArF stepper is the elongation of the temporal pulse length which reduces peak power and thereby alleviates compaction problems.
